New avian flu cases in poultry in just two European states
With the changing seasons in Europe, there has been a marked decline in the number of new outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in both domestic and wild birds.
The only European countries registering new cases in highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) poultry over the past week are Lithuania and Poland. Surveillance has revealed the first detections of an H5N1 HPAI in a wild bird in Latvia, and an H5N4 variant in the German state of Lower Saxony.
