    A new outbreak of bird flu in eastern Gers, 5,000 animals slaughtered

    Wednesday March 24, 2021 at 5:12 PM - By Manon Klein , France Bleu Occitanie
    Gers

    Avian flu is still active in the Gers. A new outbreak was detected in the east of the department, near Auch; 5000 animals were slaughtered.

    We thought the epidemic was almost over, obviously it is gaining new territories in the Gers: an outbreak of bird flu was detected last weekend in a farm in Castelnau-Barbarens, near Auch. The 5,000 ducks and poultry from this farm were slaughtered. As always, a security perimeter is set up; but this is an area that is relatively sparse in breeding. Since the start of this avian flu episode, 65 outbreaks have been detected in the Gers.

    The epidemic is spreading
    This may worry the Gers breeders, which until now the outbreaks of avian flu were mostly "contained" in the west of the department , on the border with the Landes. They are now also found in the south and east of the Gers.

    Consequence of the new outbreak detected in Castelnau-Barbarens: the Saramon slaughterhouse is shut down until further notice because it is located in the same sector.

      Avian influenza
      an outbreak detected in a private individual's backyard


      An outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza type H5N8 was confirmed in Haute-Savoie on the
      commune of Messery. This is the first outbreak on the department
      .

      The prefecture on April 13 ordered the euthanasia of all the birds in the farmyard and ordered
      epidemiological investigations to identify, if possible, the source of the contamination.

      To prevent any risk of spreading the avian influenza virus, the temporary control area set up
      since April 9 around the breeding, gave way on April 13 to a protection zone (3 km around the outbreak) and
      to a surveillance zone (10 km around the home), in accordance with the regulations. In order to control the risk
      spread of the virus, the movement of poultry is prohibited in these areas where sanitary measures
      strict must be observed. Given the situation of the household close to the border, the authorities
      Swiss veterinarians have been informed.

        Meurthe-et-Moselle: two falcons victims of bird flu in Saint-Nicolas-de-Port

        Friday May 7, 2021 at 4:17 PM - By Nathalie Broutin , Isabelle Baudriller , France Bleu Sud Lorraine
        Meurthe-et-Moselle

        Two young birds, found in Saint-Nicolas-de-Port were indeed infected with the avian influenza virus H5N8, confirms the prefecture this Friday, May 7. Thirteen municipalities around the discovery of the corpses are affected by a temporary control order.

        Since mid-November and the arrival of the avian flu epidemic in France, Meurthe-et-Moselle had so far recorded only one suspicion of the virus. On November 28 and 30, swans were found dead in Frambois in Lun?villois.

        In a press release, the prefecture indicates " like several European countries, France has been facing an episode of highly pathogenic avian influenza since mid-November. The situation has now stabilized in several affected areas in the South-West but some new ones. outbreaks are still detected. This H5N8 virus, not transmissible to humans, circulates in wildlife in Europe through migratory birds ".

        Today, the cases are confirmed by the prefecture: two falcons found dead in Saint-Nicolas-de-Port.

        " To prevent any risk of dissemination ", Arnaud Cochet, prefect of Meurthe-et-Moselle, issues an order determining a temporary control zone around the place of discovery of the corpses. Thirteen municipalities are concerned:

        ART-SUR-MEURTHE, BUISSONCOURT, COYVILLER, DOMBASLE-SUR-MEURTHE, HARAUCOURT, LANEUVEVILLE-DEVANT-NANCY, LENONCOURT, MANONCOURT-EN-VERMOIS, ROSI?RES-AUXSALOMM, SAINT-NICOLAS-VILLE-DE-PORT, EN-VERMOIS

        In these thirteen municipalities, a certain number of strict sanitary measures must be observed:
        Movements of poultry and captive birds are prohibited within this regulated perimeter.
        All the owners of birds, whether they are farmers or private individuals, must declare their backyard to their town hall.
        Biosecurity measures must be strictly observed to avoid the contamination of their animals by wild birds, especially in low private yards, to stem the spread of the virus: sheltering (in closed buildings or under netting) of poultry , vigilance and monitoring of mortality, and alert to its veterinarian or the Departmental Directorate for the Protection of the Populations in the event of mortality and abnormal clinical signs.

        " The implementation of these measures ", further specifies the refecture of Meurthe-et-Moselle, " is an essential condition to limit the spread of the virus. As a reminder, the avian influenza virus (H5N8) exclusively affects birds; it is not transmissible to humans, who can safely consume poultry meat, eggs and more generally any poultry-based food product . "

          Avian influenza: France raises the level of risk on its territory in the face of the progression of the infection in Europe

          AVIAN INFLUENZA
          ANIMAL HEALTH



          Cheick Saidou / agriculture.gouv.fr


          09/10/2021



          COMMUNICATED



          The epidemiological situation with respect to highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is worrying: since August 1, 25 cases have been detected in wildlife and other captive birds in Europe. Since September 2, two H5N8 cases have been reported in Belgium, one in an ornamental bird trader; the other at an individual. Luxembourg has also declared a case in an individual, directly related to the sales made by the aforementioned Belgian trader.

          In addition, in France, the national reference laboratory of ANSES confirmed on September 9 an H5N8 outbreak in a private owner of poultry (ducks, chickens, turkeys, pigeons) in the Ardennes department. All the animals were euthanized on September 8, early, to prevent the spread of the virus, and protection and surveillance zones were immediately put in place around the outbreak.

          This case does not call into question the status recovered by France on September 2 as an “influenza-free country”.


          In view of these developments and taking into account the probable persistence of the virus in wildlife (migratory and residential), the Minister of Agriculture and Food has decided to raise the level of risk from "negligible" to " moderate ” throughout the metropolitan area. This decision was taken after informing the poultry industry professionals and the National Federation of Hunters. Julien Denormandie calls for strict compliance with biosecurity measures and increased surveillance on the part of professional actors, individuals who keep birds and hunters.

          As a result, preventive measures are made mandatory from September 10 in municipalities located in so-called special risk areas (ZRP), that is to say sheltering wetlands frequented by migratory birds. The list of municipalities concerned is defined by the ministerial decree of March 16, 2016 .

          The measures that apply are as follows:
          • sheltering poultry;
          • ban on the gathering of birds (for competitions for example);
          • a ban on the participation of birds originating from ZRP in gatherings organized in the rest of the territory;
          • limited authorizations for the transport and introduction into the natural environment of game birds and the use of decoys;
          • ban on racing pigeon competitions;
          • compulsory vaccination in zoos for birds that cannot be confined or protected under netting.
          These measurements are accompanied by daily clinical monitoring in all farms (commercial and non-commercial).

          In this context, the rapid and complete implementation of the roadmap signed on July 8 between the State and professionals to avoid a new epizootic is essential. It will make it possible to better protect farms in the face of the “influenza” risk via the various measures it entails: reinforced obligation to shelter poultry in the event of increasing risk; implementation of stricter prevention (biosecurity) rules; reduction in the densities of palmipeds in the southwest, management of game movements and callers to limit contact with wildlife, etc.

          The 2021 avian influenza roadmap can be viewed here .

          The new applicable rules will enter into force very soon.

                Avian influenza: 43 municipalities of Gers in areas at risk of spread

                The Ministry of Agriculture and Food published two decrees on Thursday, September 30, concerning highly pathogenic avian influenza. One of them defines areas at risk of dissemination: 539 municipalities, including 43 Gers, from 9 departments are concerned.

                New measures. The Ministry of Agriculture and Food published two decrees on Thursday, September 30, which set out the rules to make farms less vulnerable to highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).

                The first defines Diffusion Risk Zones (ZRD), in which enhanced prevention and biosecurity measures apply depending on the level of risk. Since September 10, this level has been raised to 'moderate' throughout the territory of mainland France. 539 municipalities from 9 departments, including the Gers, are included in these ZRDs.
