    Strong suspicion of avian influenza in a farm in Landes: a control zone set up


    The presence of avian influenza type H5 was detected in a Landes farm. Results which must be confirmed by a second laboratory. As a precaution, a temporary control zone is set up in the municipalities of the sector.

    Traces of the dreaded virus have indeed been found in a Landes farm. Saturday December 5, a breeder located in Benesse-Maremne notes a high mortality among his poultry. At this time when the department is at high risk of avian flu, the suspicion of contamination with the virus is high.

            AVIAN FLU: TWO NEW CONTAMINATED FARMS IN WESTERN FRANCE


            Five French duck farms have been contaminated with bird flu since the beginning of December.

            Two new duck farms have been infected with bird flu in western France, bringing the total of infected farms to five since the beginning of the month , the Agriculture Ministry said on Monday.

            These outbreaks concern "a breeding of lean ducks in Vend?e at Saint-Maurice-des-Noues and a breeding of breeding Muscovy ducks in Deux-S?vres at Saint-Sauveur", near Bressuire, it is reported in a press release.

            "
            All the birds from these farms were slaughtered without delay or, for the most recent, are being slaughtered," he added.
            Last week, three cases of avian influenza (commonly known as avian influenza) had been detected in duck farms intended for the production of foie gras in the Landes.
            Cinq ?levages de canards fran?ais ont au total ?t? contamin?es par la grippe aviaire depuis le d?but du mois de d?cembre.

                Avian influenza: Chalosse also under close surveillance

                We are talking about a 6th possible case in Bergouey in the Landes when poultry were slaughtered as a preventive measure, December 20, in a farm in Sort-en-Chalosse. While awaiting the final results of the analyzes on the two farms, a temporary control zone (ZCT) has been established.

                on 12/21/2020

                This Monday evening, a meeting is to be held with the Landes prefecture and the players in the sector to take stock of this situation.

                Two contaminated farms

                In Sort-en-Chalosse , the 2,000 ducks from a farm were slaughtered this Sunday, December 20 because the presence of the virus was strongly suspected there.

                Samples were taken on Saturday evening in the breeding in question. The results should be known to confirm or not the presence of the virus, and the practical measures that could result from it.

                  Avian flu in the Landes: suspected cases in three new municipalities

                  12 26 2020

                  Hinx, Maylis and Baigts farms could in turn be affected by avian influenza. The duck breeders were received at the prefecture this Saturday


                  More than their anger, the duck farmers wanted to make their fears heard this Saturday morning, December 26, by demonstrating in front of the Landes prefecture. At 10 am, between 100 and 120 people had gathered to say "stop slaughtering healthy ducks" .

                  "Ducks from Hinx, Baigts and Maylis do indeed show evocative signs," recognizes the prefecture. We are awaiting the results of the analyzes for which there are strong suspicions. Moreover, the slaughter of a farm has already taken place in Maylis today (Saturday, December 26, Ed). "

                      France to cull 600,000 poultry to stem bird flu

                      PARIS (Reuters) - France is to cull around 600,000 poultry birds as it tries to contain an avian influenza virus that is spreading among duck flocks in the southwest of the country, the farm ministry said on Tuesday.

                      France is among European countries to have reported highly contagious strains of bird flu late last year, leading to mass culls as authorities try to limit transmission from wild birds to farm flocks.

                      France has already slaughtered around 200,000 poultry and plans to cull a further 400,000 birds, a farm ministry official said.

                      The culls include flocks where outbreaks occurred, as ...https://wtvbam.com/2021/01/05/france...stem-bird-flu/

                        France has 264 outbreaks of avian influenza in its farms, the vast majority of which are in the southwest, known for its production of foie gras, where more than a million animals have already been slaughtered.

                        In the South-West, 252 outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (commonly known as avian flu) have been confirmed as of January 14, reports the Ministry of Agriculture on its website.

                        The Landes particularly affected

                        Most of the outbreaks (224) are located in the Landes , the leading foie gras producing department, which has around 800 palmipeds (especially ducks) production farms.
                        The other outbreaks are located in the Gers (14), the Pyr?n?es-Atlantiques (12) and the Hautes-Pyr?n?es (2).

                        Outside the South-West, 12 outbreaks - including in pet shops and backyards - have been identified in five departments: Haute-Corse (6), Vend?e (3), Deux-S?vres (1), Corse-du -South (1) and Yvelines (1). Nine cases have also been identified in wildlife.

                            AVIAN INFLUENZA
                            ANIMAL HEALTH



                            Xavier Remongin / agriculture.gouv.fr


                            The Minister of Agriculture and Food, Julien Denormandie, went successively to the Landes on January 8 and then to the Gers on January 11, in order to express the state's support for the poultry sectors affected. whip by this new epizootic of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). He also praised the State services and all the actors who are fully mobilized in the management of this crisis.
                            Like several European countries, France has been facing an episode of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) since mid-November. The disease circulates actively in wildlife and manifests itself on the occasion of migrations towards the South.
                            As a reminder, this avian influenza virus (H5N8) exclusively affects birds; it is not transmissible to humans who can safely consume meat of avian origin, eggs, fatty liver and more generally any poultry food product.

                            Number of confirmed outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza:

                            As of February 22, France had 472 outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in breeding confirmed by the national reference laboratory (NRL) of ANSES.
                            These outbreaks are distributed as follows:
                            • 459 households in breeding in the South-West;
                            • 13 households outside the South-West;
                            It has also recorded 13 cases in wildlife.
                            Consult the details of the outbreaks by department (PDF, 646.95 Ko)
                            As of February 12, 3 million poultry (mostly ducks) had been slaughtered in the Southwest on the orders of the administration, following the detection of outbreaks or as a preventive measure to limit the spread of the virus.



                            It is important to recall the imperative need to guarantee biosecurity in farms; the government has moreover provided for aid for this purpose in the recovery plan.
                            The State will be present alongside the breeders concerned; their losses will be compensated in compliance with European and national regulations. A deposit system to compensate for the value of slaughtered animals is already in place.



                            Southwest: measures in force in the regulated area

                            Faced with an extremely contagious virus between birds this year, poultry farms must be rapidly depopulated within a radius of 5 km, and movements prohibited within a radius of 20 km.
                            On the basis of an opinion delivered on January 7 by ANSES, the following additional measures have been taken:
                            • Preventive felling previously carried out over a radius of 3 km around the outbreaks will now be carried out over 5 km. They concern in the 1 st kilometer all farmed birds and backyard, and for the next 4 km all waterfowl and other birds when they are not claustr?es;
                            • Slaughter capacities will be significantly increased thanks to the mobilization of the service provider mandated by the State, to that of health veterinarians as well as to the requisition of additional slaughterhouses;
                            • The 10 km surveillance zone around the outbreaks can be extended up to 20 km, with a ban on the exit and entry of poultry (including to repopulate a farm which has finished its production cycle). These restrictions will be reassessed by the end of January, in the light of the epidemiological assessment.
                            List of municipalities in protection zones and surveillance zones under Directive 2005/94 / EC and the ministerial decree of January 18, 2008 (PDF, 769.74 KB)




                            Slaughter

                            Slaughtering capacities were significantly increased with the requisition of 5 slaughterhouses located in the municipalities of Gibret (Landes), Montaut (Landes), Came (Pyr?n?es-Atlantiques), Maubourguet (Hautes-Pyr?n?es) and Castelnau d'Auzan (Gers) ).
                            As of February 12, 3 million poultry (mainly ducks) were slaughtered in the South West on the orders of the administration, following the detection of outbreaks or as a preventive measure.

                            Other outbreaks in France - measures in force

                            The situation seems to be evolving in the other departments affected by the virus since its introduction in France in mid-November, but few new areas have appeared.
                            The measures that apply in the departments where outbreaks have been confirmed (Deux-S?vres, Vend?e, Ardennes) are the slaughter of all the poultry on the infected farm and the establishment of a protection zone. 3 km around the outbreaks as well as a 10 km surveillance zone around these outbreaks.
                            In order to control the risk of spreading the virus, the movement of poultry is prohibited in these areas where strict sanitary measures must be observed.





                            Status in wildlife

                            In wildlife, a sign that the H5N8 virus is circulating, 13 cases have been recorded in animals found dead: barn geese (Morbihan and Loire-Atlantique); swans (Meurthe-et-Moselle, Loire and Allier); greylag goose (Bouches-du-Rh?ne); hawk and gull (Haute-Corse), seagull (Landes), shelduck duck (Calvados), red knot (Manche), sparrows (Ardennes).
                            A temporary control zone (ZCT) has been set up around the places where corpses are found: confinement of poultry and captive birds, compliance with biosecurity measures, ban on the movement of poultry and gatherings (fairs, etc.).

                            Measures in force throughout the national metropolitan territory

                            As a reminder, the entire national metropolitan territory has been classified as a “high” risk level with regard to avian influenza since November 17, 2020.

                            The following measures apply to all the departments of France and of Corsica :
                            • confinement or protection of poultry farms by a net with reduction of outdoor routes for animals;
                            • ban on assembling birds (examples: competitions, fairs or exhibitions);
                            • a ban on involving birds originating from these departments in organized gatherings;
                            • ban on the use and transport of decoys for waterfowl hunting.
                            Vigilance remains imperative to prevent the spread of the virus. The biosecurity measures to be respected by professionals as well as by individuals (backyard) can be consulted at this address:

                              A first case of transmission to humans of an H5N8 avian influenza virus raging in Russia was reported today by Russia to the World Health Organization (WHO). Seven employees working on a farm in southern Russia were said to have been contaminated through contact with poultry, without human-to-human transmission having been demonstrated.



                              The ministers in charge of Agriculture and Health wish to recall the measures put in place in France to monitor and manage the avian influenza epizootic.
                              The avian influenza epizootic which has raged in France and in particular in the South-West, since December 2020 (466 outbreaks detected to date) is the subject of continuous monitoring by ANSES in connection with the services of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food. To date, 130 complete viral sequences have thus been obtained. None of the analyzes carried out by ANSES showed any properties giving rise to fear of a risk of transmission to humans of the avian influenza virus present in poultry in France.
                              The ANSES teams are studying the information with the greatest attention, in particular the sequencing of the virus detected in infected persons and their comparison with the viruses circulating in poultry in France. The results of the comparison of the sequences of the Russian virus and the viruses circulating in our territory will be communicated as soon as possible.
                              Sant? Publique France, in charge of human surveillance, and the National Reference Center for respiratory viruses including influenza, were also contacted to jointly conduct this risk analysis.

                              For several weeks the epizootic has experienced a marked slowdown in France. The preventive slaughter strategy that has been carried out has shown its effectiveness in stopping the progression of the virus in farms. These depopulations resulted in the slaughter of around 3 million poultry (mainly palmipeds) and this depopulation strategy will continue to be applied to any new suspicion in the southwest to curb any risk of dissemination as quickly as possible. virus.

                              The risk of contamination of poultry by wildlife nevertheless remains high throughout the country. The Minister of Agriculture and Food, Julien Denormandie insists on the need to scrupulously apply biosecurity measures to avoid the introduction of the avian influenza virus in breeding and backyard.
