    Official announcement

    BVBH found Avian influenza in the village of Yoglav, Lovech region

    03.04.2019

    0


    (3.4.2019)


    The Bulgarian Food Safety Agency (BSA) found a new outbreak of the bird flu (H5) disease in a registered holding in the village of Yoglav, Lovech, Lovech region. Samples were confirmed on Tuesday, April 2, by the National Reference Laboratory of the National Diagnostic Research Veterinary Medical Institute.
    The affected birds in the site are duck moths. For the control and eradication of the disease, BSA applies all measures in accordance with the legislation in force. An Order of the Executive Director of the BHAH (2.4.2019) sets out the actions to eradicate the outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza and the spread of infection among birds in the area. Humane killing and destruction of all birds kept on the site is carried out, followed by cleansing and disinfection. A 3-kilometer safety zone and a 10-kilometer surveillance zone around the outbreak of the disease have been identified. The movement of birds and their products into and out of the protection and surveillance zones is prohibited. In both areas, the marketing and movement of domestic, wild and other breeding and breeding eggs and the displacement of birds for the renewal of the wild game stock is prohibited. After the outbreak of the disease in March 2019 in the village of Lisec, the daily clinical examinations of the birds kept in the other villages in the protection zone continued and an epizootic study was carried out on the causes that led to the disease. The regional and municipal epizootic commissions are currently convened. The RHI-Lovech was informed about this case and all preventive measures were taken to protect the health of the people. At this stage, there are no people affected and there is no danger to consumers. Possible contamination may occur in direct contact with sick birds. The NVS reminds that feed and feed materials should be kept indoors. This avoids the possibility of wild feathered animals to infect the feed, and hence the animals to be infected with a virus. Up-to-date information on outbreaks in the country and on the movement of the bird flu Influenza can be found in the interactive map published on the site of BSAF here .
