    Bird flu detected in the common buzzard

    October 31, 2020

    On the island of Rügen, the avian flu pathogen has been detected in a common buzzard.

    As a spokesman for the Ministry of Agriculture announced in Schwerin, the H5N5 virus was found in the blood of the dead animal. The avian influenza had already been detected yesterday in wild birds in North Friesland and Hamburg.
    Auf der Insel Rügen ist bei einem Mäusebussard der Erreger der Vogelgrippe nachgewiesen worden. Wie ein Sprecher des Landwirtschaftsministeriums in Schwerin mitteilte, wurde im Blut des verendeten Tieres das Virus H5N5 festgestellt. Gestern war die Geflügelpest bereits bei Wildvögeln in Nordfriesland und Hamburg nachgewiesen worden. Unterdessen wurde bekannt, dass die Afrikanische Schweinepest in einem weiteren Bundesland aufgetreten ist. Nach Brandenburg gibt es inzwischen auch in Sachsen Fälle der Tierseuche. Sie ist für Menschen ungefährlich, bedroht aber die Haustierbestände. Landwirtschaftsministerin Klöckner hat bereits einen Krisenstab eingerichtet.

      Oct 31, 2020Press release No. 216/2020

      Cases of avian influenza detected

      The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) informs that avian influenza has been detected in a wild duck in Hamburg, a common buzzard in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and various wild birds in Schleswig-Holstein. This is what the Federal Research Institute for Animal Health, the Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) confirmed on Friday. So far it has only been a matter of individual cases.


      The FLI had already pointed out at the beginning of October that migratory birds could also become infected with avian influenza among wild birds in autumn and that the risk of their entry into Germany was high.

      The competent authorities of the federal states are now called upon to closely monitor the situation and to intensify monitoring measures with regard to dead or sick wild birds.

      Poultry farmers are also asked to take precautionary measures and monitor their stocks.

      The local authority responsible for animal disease control decides on the specific measures.

      The BMELpoints out: Even if the virus types H5N8 and H5N5 detected in these cases are not yet known to be transmitted to humans, dead birds should not be touched, also to prevent the pathogen from spreading. In principle, the general hygiene and protective measures when handling poultry and wild birds must be consistently followed.

      With the outbreak of avian influenza in wild birds, there are no restrictions on trade.

      Das Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft (BMEL) informiert, dass Geflügelpest bei einer Wildente in Hamburg, einem Mäusebussard in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern und verschiedenen Wildvögeln in Schleswig-Holstein nachgewiesen wurde. Das hat das Bundesforschungsinstitut für Tiergesundheit, das Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI) am Freitag bestätigt. Bisher handelt es sich nur um einzelne Fälle.

        First cases of "avian flu" in wild birds in Northern Germany - high risk of further spread and introduction into poultry populations

        11/02/2020


        FLI advises checking the biosafety of poultry holdings, and the population should report dead wild birds

        Riems Island, November 2nd, 2020. In Germany, on October 30th, 2020 cases of infections with highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) / bird flu of subtype H5 were detected in wild birds almost simultaneously on the North and Baltic Sea coasts and in Hamburg.

        These events were preceded by a series of outbreaks in poultry and wild birds in Russia and Kazakhstan since the end of July and in Israel and the Netherlands in mid and late October 2020.

        The risk of further inputs from to Germany, the spread in water bird populations and the introduction into German poultry holdings and bird populations in zoological institutions through direct and indirect contact with wild birds is rated as high. The virus types identified have not yet been detected in humans. The Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) advises Immediately intensify monitoring measures with regard to dead or sick wild birds and check and, if necessary, optimize the biosecurity in the poultry farms.

        Contact between poultry and wild birds should be avoided at all costs. The current risk assessment of the FLI provides further information.

          November 2nd, 2020


          Avian influenza is also spreading in Schleswig-Holstein. After the first cases in the neighboring district of North Friesland were confirmed on October 30, nine more wild birds have now died of avian flu in Dithmarschen and in neighboring North Friesland - including a sea eagle in the North Friesland district, as a spokesman for the Ministry of Environment announced on Monday evening. In addition to the avian influenza subtype H5N8, another subtype H5N5 was detected, which circulates in parallel in the wild bird population.

          The ministry received a corresponding confirmation on Monday from the Friedrich Loeffler Institute, the national reference laboratory for avian influenza.

            Nach einem Hochwasser sind auf einem sechs Kilometer langen Strandabschnitt im Kreis Nordfriesland rund 1000 tote Wildvögel entdeckt worden – hauptsächlich Nonnengänse. Die Vermutung liegt nahe, dass die Tiere an der Geflügelpest verendet sind.

              Avian influenza: 30 new cases in Schleswig-Holstein

              After the first case in a farm became known on Thursday, the numbers of wild birds are also increasing.

              The avian influenza in Schleswig-Holstein continues to spread. The number of detected infections in wild birds in the state has increased by 30 new cases. The Ministry of Agriculture announced on Saturday in Kiel that there was now a total of 75 positive records in wild birds in the country. According to the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut, bird flu was found in wild geese, wild ducks, curlews, an oystercatcher and several seagulls.

              The Schleswig-Holstein State Office for Coastal Protection, National Park and Marine Protection has counted more than 2,700 dead wild birds since the start of the event. The number of birds found dead has almost doubled within two days, the ministry said. A first case for the Steinburg district has now been confirmed. The district will now order stables in certain areas, it said.
              Nachdem am Donnerstag der erste Fall in einem Nutzbetrieb bekannt geworden ist, steigen die Zahlen auch bei den Wildvögeln an.
