  • Croatia Reports H5N8 Bird Flu in Farm Poultry - December 30, 2016

    dec 30 2016

    Croatia on Friday announced the discovery of a highly contagious strain of bird flu in poultry at a small family farm on the country's northern border with Hungary.

    The H5N8 strain of bird flu, detected at a farm in the village of Kriznica on the Drava river, killed all 15 chickens and ducks raised there, an agriculture ministry statement said.
    The village is home to 22 small farms raising poultry, it said.
    But as it is located between the Drava and the border, there is no risk that the virus will spread, the ministry added.
    Precautionary measures were nonetheless brought in.
    "A ban on the movement of people, animals and vehicles was introduced in the area of infection," the statement said.
    All poultry in the village will be culled later on Friday.

      Croatia is part of the EU (2013), so the rules are basically the same as in France and other EU-countries. Some countries can do more if they want .

          merci,

          j'aurai pu poser la question pour cet autre cas :
          Situation au 30 d?cembre 2016 : 75 foyers H5N8 dans les ?levages et 5 cas dans la faune sauvage confirm?s et notifi?s.

          http://agriculture.gouv.fr/influenza...yers-en-france


          dont
          Le 29 d?cembre 2016, un foyer a ?t? confirm? ? Duhort Bachen dans une basse-cour de 15 poules.


          un particulier cela n'a pas de b?timent d'?levage en sol b?tonn?, nettoyable et d?sinfectable.



          Donc, ma question est : dans les ?levages non professionnels en Europe, en France, Allemagne, Croatie, etc, ? part ?liminer tous les animaux et donc induire un vide sanitaire , on propose concr?tement quoi pour la suite:

          - dur?e du vide sanitaire

          - technique de nettoyage et d?sinfection

          - choix des animaux de remplacement et lieu d'approvionement ?


          le d?lai de 60 jours concerne en France et les influenzas de l'ann?e derni?re et pour un vide sanitaire au printemps et en ?t?...




          Il y a les textes et la r?alit?, en France les animaux sont l?galement confin?s , vu le risque, un exemple :
