The U.S. Department of Agriculture will spend $502 million to ensure its rapid response to any future bird flu cases as the country’s worst-ever outbreak of the virus levels off, the agency said Friday.

Bird flu has killed 58.7 million chickens, turkeys, and other birds across 47 states since January 2022, a record number in the U.S., according to June 7 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There have been no new cases in commercial poultry flocks since April 19, 2023, or in backyard flocks since May 18, 2023, USDA said.
