Bird Flu and Cuckoo ideas

Apparently, china is going to vaccinate all its poultry, all 14 billion of them. The Agriculture Ministry's chief veterinary officer made this statement yesterday (read here).

But how on earth can they manage it?

Even if a hundred thousand workers were working on this project (which I cannot believe)
and finding the bird and vaccinating it takes just one minute each (which is way overoptimistic)

it would still take each man nearly 292 working days (at 8 hrs work/day) to get the job done!


Someone ought to tell him to prepare for the current flu scare instead of planning for the next one.
