Summary Exercise: PMR

Read the passage below and answer the question that follows.

Bird flu (or Avian flu) infects birds and less commonly, pigs. Wild birds are the natural host for the virus, carrying it in their intestinal tract and excreting it in their droppings. Yet these birds only develop only mild and short-lived illness characterised by symptoms like ruffled feathers or less egg production.

However, domestic birds like chickens, farm ducks, geese and turkeys become very sick from bird flu and are very likely to die. Domestic birds can be infected when they roam freely and come into contact with infected wild birds, and share a water supply that is contaminated by wild birds droppings.

On a farm, the disease spread through the saliva, nasal secretions and droppings of infected birds. The virus can also be carried on the feet and bodies of animals, such as rodents.

An outbreak of bird flu is controlled by culling all infected or exposed birds and disposing of the carcasses.


Rewrite on the bird flu and how it spreads:

• in continuous writing form.
• in one paragraph.
• in your own words as far as possible.
• in not more than 60 words, including the 10 words given below.

Begin with:
Wild birds are the natural host of the bird flu...
