Russia Today:The Netherlands AgainTo Be Affected By Bird Flu—Authorities Warned Already The Netherlands To Have Its Poultry Farms To Be Too Close To Each Other

Fresh case of bird flu in Netherlands, 28,000 hens destroyed

A fourth poultry farm bird flu outbreak was discovered in western Netherlands, in the Zoeterwoude municipality, near to the sites of the previous outbreaks. According to Reuters, the farm had to destroy all of its 28,000 laying hens. Authorities have warned in the past that having many farms at such close proximity to each other makes it easier for infection to spread. The strain is H5 – the same as was found in outbreaks across Europe and Asia over the past two months. At the moment it appears that no duck farms were affected by the bird flu type.
