Poultry farm found a dangerous infection
At the poultry farm, all the birds were diagnosed with a dangerous infection. It is important that there are no other poultry farms in the one- and three-kilometer zone of the infected poultry farm.
At a Dutch poultry farm in the city of Maurik, 24,000 chickens were destroyed due to bird flu. This is reported NOS.
“In the city of Maurik in the Dutch province of Gelderland, avian influenza was diagnosed in 24,000 chickens at a poultry farm. To prevent the spread of the virus, they were all destroyed,” the message says.
It is noted that, according to experts, the likelihood of infection in this region is low. An important factor is that there are no other poultry farms in the one- and three-kilometer zone of the infected poultry farm. There are nine poultry farms in the 10-kilometer zone, one of which is a packaging plant. Eggs are sorted and packed there.
The expert group is due to meet next week to discuss the situation and assess the risks.
Earlier in China, the first case of human infection with the H3N8 avian influenza strain was registered. It was diagnosed in a four year old boy.
