The NSW Department of Primary Industries revealed how there were a number of strange symptoms found in western Sydney, and the disease was detected. The relief is that the disease isn't so dangerous as to affect humans. It ca however prove to be fatal for the birds.

The symptoms of the same are revealed to be loss of appetite, partial paralysis in the wings of the birds, trembling wings and trembling head, and so on.
