  • All the other responses are correct
  • Serological tests are performed on humans in close contact with animals to search for antibodies that could indicate their exposure to the infection
  • Surface swabbing is not performed in outbreak investigations in poultry markets because viruses are not viable in the environment
  • Spill-over of zoonotic viruses from animals to humans is relatively rare and therefore human cases are highly relevant to identify risky human-animal interactions
