Taylor Blake and Emmanuel the emu seen in Tiktok videos shared on other social networking platforms need no introduction to those who have been enjoying the amazingly entertaining videos of the two.
Emanuel obviously loves the spotlight and obviously hates phones. Emmanuel became an internet sensation overnight, and his newfound fame comes thanks to Taylor Blake, his caretaker and human documenter who posts videos of them and other birds and animals living on Taylor’s South Florida farm.

“Emmanuel, don’t do that!” Blake is often seen telling Emmanuel to stop and “not choose violence” as he ignores and approaches a signal – he crosses in front of her and the iPhone camera stands, pauses, stares into the lens and completely hijacks the shot.

But now tragedy has struck the Knuckle Bump farm in Florida. Most of the birds on the farm died from bird flu or bird flu and Emmanuel is fighting for his life.

As vets and farm staff try to save Emmanuel, Taylor is concerned and worried about the emu’s recovery.

She can be seen holding him and cuddling him and telling him many times that she loves him and that he will be fine soon.

One wonders whether a lot of human contact is okay and whether bird flu can jump to humans.

Here’s what the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says about this problem.

Avian influenza virus infection in humans:

Although avian (avian) influenza viruses do not usually infect people, there have been some rare cases of infection with these viruses. The severity of human illness from avian influenza virus infection ranged from asymptomatic or mild illness to severe illness resulting in death.

Asian lineage H7N9 and highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 viruses have been responsible for most human diseases caused by avian influenza viruses worldwide to date, including the most severe and the diseases with the highest mortality.

How is bird-to-human transmission possible:

Infected birds excrete the bird flu virus through their saliva, mucus, and droppings.

Infection in humans is more likely to occur when the virus gets into a person’s eyes, nose, or mouth, or if it is inhaled.

Virus transmission can also occur when the virus is in the air (in droplets or possibly dust) and someone breathes it in, or perhaps when a person touches something with a virus on it and then touches their mouth, eyes, or nose.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the spread of avian influenza viruses from an infected person to close contact has occurred although rarely, and when it has occurred, it has been limited to a small number of people.

But, because bird flu viruses have the potential to mutate and gain the ability to spread easily between people, monitoring human infection and person-to-person spread is critical to public health.

One hopes that Emmanuel emu recovers quickly and relieves Taylor Blake of worrying about the health and future of Emmanuel Todd Lopez – which is by the way the full Christian name of the emo. How do we know? We’ve seen Taylor Blake – like many parents who scold their children – invoke the entire emu name.
