Bird Flu

Another outbreak of H7N7 highly pathogenic avian flu has been found in Italy.
 
The outbreak occurred in the same region, Emilia-Romagna, as an outbreak reported earlier this month. The farm was within the protection zone set up after the earlier outbreak.
 
The new outbreak affected a turkey farm holding nearly 50,000 birds. 170 birds died and the rest will have to be culled as part of stamping out measures.
