It could affect human deadly. Human can infected to this influenza through excrements of birds like chickens, ducks, and eggs, dusts, even air, and so on. And if a person infected this influenza, the person can even die. It means AI can be extremely dangerous to human. Not only for human, it can be dangerous to birds too. To escape from this influenza, we should know exactly about what is AI and learn how to prevent this influenza.
This will be simple to understand AI as a flu of birds which can affect people too. The casualties because of AI first appeared at Hongkong. And as the time goes, it spread to Korea too. In fact AI appears in Korea every year (it appeared in 2016 too), and many birds died and many people got risks or even died because of AI every year. When AI affect birds, most people kill the birds to prevent the spread of this infection.
Then, how can we prevent this influenza?
First, we should avoid to visit a place which is this infection spread, and we should avoid to eat birds like chickens, ducks and so on. It is the easiest and the most effective way to prevent AI. But if we had to eat birds like chickens and ducks, we must eat them after we boil them. It means we must not eat them when they are uncooked. In fact, mostly, it will be safe to eat chickens or ducks if we boiled them properly and safely. Most virus and bad germs will be eliminated by high temperature while we boil them. So we will not infected by AI influenza if we eat birds after we boil them.
Second, we should care about our clean more. For example, we should take a shower and wash our hands more frequently. And especially after we visited a place which AI spread, or even another places, we should wash our hands. Through washing hads, we can remove virus and bad germs which was on our hands. That's why that many people include doctors say washing hands is important when we got sick.

Edits from The Junior Herald:
Avian Influenza, AI, is an infection that occurs as an influenza virus in birds. For many years, many people thought that this infection can only affect birds. However, it has been found that this is not the case. AI is deadly to human beings as well. People can be infected by this influenza through excrements of birds such as from chickens, ducks, and eggs. It can also be caught by dust and even in the air. If a person becomes infected this influenza, the person can even die. AI can be extremely dangerous to birds too. To avoid catching AI, people should know exactly what AI is and learn how to prevent the spread of this influenza.

AI is simply the flu amongst birds, which can affect people too. AI’s first casualties appeared in Hong Kong. Eventually, it spread to Korea too. In fact AI has been appearing in Korea every year and as a result, many birds died and many people became very sick or died as well. When AI affects birds, people tend to kill the birds to prevent the spread of this infection.

So how can we prevent the spread of this influenza?
First, people must avoid visiting places which this infection spread and should avoid eating chickens, ducks, and so on. This is the easiest and the most effective way to prevent AI. However, if it is the only option for some people to eat chicken and duck, it is recommended to first boil the meat in water. It should not be eaten uncooked. In fact, chicken or duck meat should always be cooked properly and safely before being eaten. Most viruses and bad germs will be killed by high temperatures while being boiled. In this way, people will be less likely to be infected by AI.

Second, people must take care of their personal hygiene. For example, people should take a shower often and wash their hands frequently especially after visiting a place in which AI had spread. By washing their hands, they can remove viruses and bad germs. This is why doctors often recommend to their patients to wash their hands.

AI is very dangerous, but the ways that we can prevent this influenza from spreading is quite simple. We can prevent the spread of this infection by avoiding places where AI spread, avoid eating bird meat, and take care of personal hygiene often.
