But it remains unclear when his quarantine period, which began on December 22, may end.

His beloved flock of 160 Muscovy ducks has all been euthanized, but Alan says his family has been provided with more.

He told The Sun: “I burst out laughing when they told me that.

“I thought, ‘Are you joking?'”

Buckfastleigh’s father of three, Devon, added: ‘I’m fine, I don’t have any pain or anything.

I’m honored with the fact that whatever they find in testing will help produce a drug. “

Symptoms of bird flu:

Call your GP or NHS 111 if you are experiencing any symptoms of bird flu and have visited an area affected by avian flu in the past 10 days.

The main symptoms of bird flu can come on very quickly and include:

  • very high temperature or feeling hot or shivering
  • muscle aches
  • headache
  • cough or difficulty breathing

Other early symptoms may include:

  • diarrhea
  • diseases
  • stomachache
  • chest pain
  • Bleeding nose and gums
  • conjunctivitis

It usually takes three to five days for the first symptoms to appear after you are infected.

Within days of symptoms appearing, more severe complications such as pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome can develop.
