# In a race to contain a bird flu virus, France has discarded over 600-thousand poultry. The Agriculture Ministry reported outbreaks at 26 factory farms in the southwest, 15 cases in wild fowl and three at barnyards.  Belgium and Britain also announced outbreaks last week, where 100-thousand animals died from the virus.

# And, tennis: US Open champion Emma Raducanu has pulled out of an Australian Open warm-up tournament as she continues to recover from the coronavirus. The 19-year-old Briton was due to line up alongside defending Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka and former world number one Simona Halep at the Melbourne Summer Set WTA event from Tuesday.
