      Bird flu is already in seven regions. Another outbreak was confirmed in the Uherské Hradišt? region
      Yesterday
      The twelfth outbreak of bird flu was confirmed in the hitherto unaffected region, in breeding in Auschwitz in the Zlín Region. Over the weekend, vets spent four hundred poultry there. Outbreaks in farms are thus in seven regions, ie in every second.


      The focus in the Zlín Region is the second, which is not in small-scale breeding. "The breeder reported the death of twelve birds out of a total of over four hundred. These were hens, geese, ducks and turkeys, "said Petr Vorlí?ek, a spokesman for the State Veterinary Administration (SVS), about the Auschwitz outbreak. The laboratory subsequently confirmed the H5N8 influenza subtype. Veterinarians will demarcate zones around the outbreak, where stricter conditions for breeders will apply.

      "As in the previous cases, a three-kilometer protection zone and a surveillance zone with a radius of ten kilometers will be defined and emergency veterinary measures will be declared in these zones. In particular, the movement of poultry to and from the zones will be restricted and inventories of poultry farms will be made, "added the spokesman of the State Veterinary Administration.

      Half of the regions are already affected

      Outbreaks in farms are now in seven regions, in addition to the Zlín region, also in the Central Bohemian, Moravian-Silesian, South Bohemian, Pardubice and Plze? regions and in the Vyso?ina region. The disease has also been confirmed in wild birds in the Liberec, Olomouc, Zlín and Ústí regions and in Prague. Newly also for two swans on Chomoutovské lake near Olomouc and for one swan in Hynkov near Olomouc.

      Last week, it appeared in the Zlín Region with a swan by the Novoveské gravel lakes in the cadastre of Ostrožská Nová Ves in the Uherské Hradišt? region. According to Vorlí?ek, it was also newly confirmed in a dead swan, which was found on St?íbrný jezero near Opava.

      The Agrarian Chamber previously pointed out that breeders in Czech commercial farms adhere to high standards of biological safety. According to her spokeswoman Barbora Pánková, the number of flu outbreaks in Czech small farms is growing, which has an economically significant impact on commercial farms.

      Veterinarians recommend keeping poultry indoors

      Veterinarians recommend small poultry farmers to keep it indoors and protect it from contact with wild birds. "At the same time, we urge citizens not to collect birds in this area in case of finding dead wild birds in this area, but to inform the locally competent regional veterinary administration about this fact," said ZSn?k Semerád, the central director of SVS.

      In the Czech Republic, bird flu, apart from last year, when veterinarians had to slaughter around 137,000 birds, appeared ten years later in 2017. At that time, 98,000 birds had to be killed, mostly in large farms. There were almost forty outbreaks in the country.

      The disease is dangerous for birds, so far it was not thought to be transmitted to humans. However, in February, Russia announced that it had recorded the first transmission of a strain of the bird flu virus (H5N8) to humans. According to the Consumer Health Authority, Rospotrebnadzor is the first disease of its kind to be detected in the world. According to Gabriela Dlouhá, secretary of the Agrarian Chamber, consumers do not have to worry, the transmission of the disease has never been proven from person to person or from processed poultry to humans.
