Avian Bird Flu Re-Emerges In South Hungary
Hungarian food safety authority Nébih said it detected Avian Flu Virus H5N8 at a duck farm in Bács-Kiskun County.

Nébih said it had started to destroy the 32,000 ducks on the farm.

It has also established a 3km protection zone and a 10km surveillance zone around the site.

Nébih said the obligation to keep poultry in enclosed areas is still in force.

Avian Flu was last detected in Hungary in January 2020.
