Bird Flu Discovered In NE Hungary
Avian influenza was identified in geese at a farm in Hajdú-Bihar County, in northeast Hungary, early in the week, Lajos Bognár, Hungary’s chief veterinarian, said on Friday, responding to a query by MTI.

More than 10,000 birds have been culled at the farm and a 3 kilometre protection zone and a 10 kilometre surveillance zone have been established around the site.

Outbreaks of the H5N8 strain of bird flu were earlier discovered in Bács-Kiskun, Bekes, Csongrád and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok Counties, in southeast and central Hungary.
