Bulgaria reports bird flu outbreak at duck farm


SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria’s food safety agency authorities reported on Sunday an outbreak of the bird flu virus on a duck farm in the northeastern village of Stefanovo and said birds on the farm were being culled.

It is the second outbreak of bird flu at the facility since October, when more than 10,000 ducks were culled.

It was unclear which strain of bird flu it was. Bulgaria has reported a handful of outbreaks of bird flu since December, some of them involving the highly pathogenic H5N8 bird flu virus.

At the farm in Stefanovo, a three-kilometer protection zone had been set around the farm and the movement of domestic, wild and other birds and has been banned within it, as has the sale of eggs and poultry, the food safety agency said on its website.

Absence of proof is not proof of absence.

Bulgaria reports another outbreak of virulent bird flu

SOFIA (Reuters) - An outbreak of a virulent bird flu virus has spread to another farm in northeastern Bulgaria, the national food safety agency said on Wednesday.

A three-kilometer protection zone was set around the farm in the village of Donchevo and the sale of eggs and the movement of domestic, wild and other birds was banned within it, the agency said in a statement.

“All contaminated and contact birds in two of the farm halls will be culled in a humane manner,” it said.

Two weeks ago the agency authorities reported an outbreak of the virus on a duck farm in the village of Stefanovo and said birds on the farm were being culled.

Bulgaria has reported a handful of outbreaks in the past year, some involving the highly pathogenic H5N8 bird flu virus.

Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
