Second H5N8 suspicion confirmed
The dangerous H5N8 virus strain has been found in a second Vorarlberger poultry farm. In this farm, where the first case was dived, all 1,100 turkeys had to be culled.
The second suspicion of bird flu in domestic poultry was announced on Friday. The samples were sent to the Agency for Health and Nutritional Safety (AGES). On Friday evening the suspicion became clear: "A clear virus detection still exists, however, the samples sent indicate the contagious animal infections," says Norbert Greber, the country's veterinarian, in a country report.
