Live Avian Flu (HPAI) 2022 Outbreak Map

Last updated:

This map highlights counties with reported cases of avian influenza (bird flu) in the United States. The outbreak in 2022 was first reported on January 13 in wild waterfowl killed by hunters.

Wild birds can be infected with HPAI and carry the disease to new areas when migrating, potentially exposing domestic poultry to the virus. Millions of commercial poultry have been culled to prevent the spread, and as a result the price of chicken is rising.
