      ECTAD-HPAI Situation Update 09/05/2013 - Issue no. 578
      Democratic People?s Republic of Korea
      Clip:
      09/05/2013 ? Confirmed H5N1 HPAI outbreak in poultry, Pyongyang (national authorities)
      On 19 April 2013, a decrease in appetite and egg production was noticed in a duck factory in Pyongyang. Soon after, other ducks in fattening cages also showed the same signs with some mortality. Initially, these signs were thought to be due to a problem in the feed. However as the mortality increased, the Central Veterinary Station was informed on 2 May 2013 and some samples were sent for testing. A virus was isolated from the samples and confirmed to be H5 HPAI, and further testing with RT-PCR by the Veterinary Institute of the Academy of Agriculture Science confirmed the samples were positive for H5N1 on 7 May 2013. A total of 20 cages were infected, more than 2 000 adult ducks, 42 000 fattening ducks and 129 000 ducklings have died or been culled. Disease control measures have been strictly taken and appropriate biosecurity has been strictly enforced. Public awareness activities for the factory workers and residents around, as well as an epidemiological survey have been conducted. No human illness due to H5N1 has been found.
