Mexico has reported an outbreak of low pathogenic avian influenza on three commercial layer farms in the state of Jalisco, according to the World Organisation for Animal Health.
Over 211,000 birds have died as a result of the disease. An investigation is ongoing to establish the extent of the problem and the source of infection in order to implement additional measures to resolve the outbreak. Additional sampling is underway to identify the possible presence of other pathogens involved in the outbreaks. So far, the farms have been quarantined and 60,000 birds have been culled.
