The avian flu virus has been detected at another poultry farm in Tennessee, according to a news report.

The low-pathogenic virus was confirmed after a strain of avian influenza virus was found in tests carried out at a Lincoln County farm, as reported by WATE.

The Tennessee Agriculture Department said that the strain poses minimal health risk to humans and might cause slight illness in poultry. Officials have reportedly said no poultry from the farm has entered the food supply.

A similar strain was found in a farm in Giles County in April but there is no visible connection between the two.
