          H5N8 Avian influenza spreads in Poland

          The H5N8 virus in Poland continues to spread to large poultry farms, most recently to a stall with 36,000 hens. Experts expect the poultry fatteners to have significant economic consequences

          02/04/2020

          Avian influenza type H5N8 continues to spread in Poland. The responsible veterinary authority confirmed the eighth outbreak in the Greater Poland Voivodeship last week. This is a farm with a total of 36,000 chickens.

          As part of the prescribed epidemic protection measures, the usual danger zones in 3 km and 7 km around the company were identified. In addition, the stock was culled immediately, the authority said.

          At the beginning of the week, an epidemic in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship caused a sensation. Almost 23,500 turkeys were affected by the first case in the region in three years. Although the avian influenza has occurred in very different parts of the country in recent weeks, the epidemic was concentrated in Greater Poland. On December 31 of last year, the first current case in a chicken business with 65,000 animals was confirmed almost simultaneously with an outbreak in Lublin.

          The epidemic is likely to have significant economic consequences for Polish poultry fatteners, especially since around half of the annual poultry meat production is destined for export. In the past few years, the export business had grown strongly, placing Poland as the first poultry producer in the European Union. The business was driven in particular by high demand from China and South Africa, so that any further restrictions on imports from these countries would leave correspondingly strong marks on the balance sheet.

          In recent weeks, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, Japan, China, South Korea, Ukraine and Belarus have restricted the import of poultry from Poland.

          Das Virus H5N8 springt in Polen immer weiter auf große Geflügelbetriebe über, zuletzt auf einen Stall mit 36.000 Hennen. Experten rechnen mit erheblichen wirtschaftlichen Folgen für die Geflügelmäster
