Tridge summary

A recent report has highlighted a concerning outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza among dairy cows in North Carolina, marking it as the seventh U.S. state to report such an outbreak. Despite the potential alarm, the risk to the public remains low, with dairy products undergoing pasteurization before being sold. In a separate report by the World Bank, the 'Africa Pulse' for April 2024 reveals a grim picture of food insecurity in Africa, with 105 million people facing severe challenges in March 2024. The economic growth in the region has been insufficient to make a significant dent in poverty levels, with Sub-Saharan Africa experiencing only a 1% increase in per capita GDP and a 1% decrease in the extreme poverty rate, both figures trailing behind the global average.
