The US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has confirmed the presence of virulent Newcastle disease in a small flock of backyard exhibition chickens in Los Angeles, California. 

Officials report that Infectious Bronchitis, Influenza H9, and Newcastle disease have hit poultry farms in Punjab resulting in the deaths of thousands of chickens in the past month. 

While the primary threat posed by this species of tick is intense infestations of cattle that can lead to weakness and, in some cases, exsanguination and death, it has also been implicated in transmission of several diseases of medical and veterinary concern.
