Very rarely accompanied by clinical manifestations. It is difficult to prove at first and only laboratory testing can be proven, "said Vassilev.

    Once confirmation has been received from the disease reference laboratory of the Bulgarian Agency for Food, has proceeded to destroy the birds, said Dr. Vassilev. "After the boom of bird flu worldwide, the European Union give such instructions in its regulation, where it is found that even low pathogenic strain, such measures can be tampingaut to or destruction of the herd on the farm" said Vassilev.

    Since then no new cases, said Dr. Vassilev. He said the emergence of the virus can not be predicted with certainty. "This is a virus, it can come and migratory birds may have come up with birds that are here", said Vassilev. Currently, damage to farmers each are calculated, the owners will be compensated 100%.
