            The avian influenza has reached the district of Neuburg-Schrobenhausen
            Mon, 03.01.2022 12:22 p.m.

            The pathogen of the subtype H5N1 was detected in a dead swan. Further expansion is assumed. Strengthened biosecurity measures are already in place.

            (ty) Avian influenza has been detected in a dead wild bird in the Neuburg-Schrobenhausen district. As the district office announced today, a dead swan was recovered from the Bittenbrunn reservoir on December 23 with the support of the Technical Relief Agency (THW). The investigation initiated by the veterinary office showed a positive result for the avian influenza virus. It goes on to say: "The national reference laboratory has now confirmed the subtype H5N1, which since mid-October 2021 has increasingly led to outbreaks in wild birds such as wild geese, wild ducks, gulls and birds of prey, but also in poultry populations."

            Based on the number of cases, according to the district office, it can be assumed that the virus can be found across Germany in wild waterfowl and has now also reached the Neuburg-Schrobenhausen district. "A further spread of the infection in the Bavarian wild bird population is assumed," said the authority. And: "The Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI) as well as the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) see in their risk assessments in particular the areas around and on waters where wild waterfowl can be found as particularly endangered on."

            As reported at the time, the district office of Neuburg-Schrobenhausen had already ordered increased biosecurity measures to protect against entry into poultry stocks with a general order dated December 8th last year. "This regulates, among other things, the ban on feeding wild birds (songbirds are excluded), the ban on poultry shows, test obligations and regulations on access to enclosures," summarizes the authority once again. The authorities urgently ask poultry farmers to comply with the measures and to prevent their poultry from coming into direct or indirect contact with wild birds. Here is the direct link to the general availability...

              Avian influenza detected in Schwan in Saarland
              03/01/2022 | 5:33 pm

              The highly contagious avian influenza pathogen H5N1 has been detected in an injured wild bird in the municipality of Perl-Besch. In the communities of Perl and Mettlach, poultry must stay in the barn for the time being. There had already been cases of avian influenza on the Luxembourg border before.

              According to the Saarland Ministry of the Environment, the infected young swan was found with a spinal injury near the Moselle on December 28 and was taken in a private enclosure.

              After the animal had tested positive for the influenza virus during the precautionary examination by the State Office for Consumer Protection (LAV), the Friedrich Loeffler Institute in Greifswald confirmed the suspicion of avian influenza.
              Poultry stalls are compulsory in Perl and Mettlach

              The municipalities of Perl and Mettlach were affected by the measures against the spread of avian influenza due to the location where it was found. "In the affected communities there is a strict stable requirement and a ban on moving live poultry," said State Secretary Sebastian Thul from the Ministry for the Environment and Consumer Protection.

              All animals in the herd affected by the avian influenza would have to be killed as a precaution. A small holding with ten animals is affected.
              Or sick animals report dead ones

              According to the ministry, wild birds are not allowed access to food, litter and objects. Domestic fowl should not be soaked in surface water to which wild birds have access.

              Thul appealed to poultry farmers to be particularly vigilant and to inform the LAV about unclear illnesses and deaths in poultry. He also called on all citizens to report dead or sick wild birds such as ducks, geese or swans to the LAV at tierseuchen@umwelt.saarland.de.
              Other cases in Luxembourg

              Two cases of avian influenza were discovered on the Luxembourgish border with Saarland at the end of November. At the beginning of December, the Saarland LAV imposed compulsory stalls for commercial and hobby poultry keeping in the municipality of Perl and in the district of Faha of the municipality of Mettlach. The poultry house requirement came into force on Friday, December 10th, for an initial period of 50 days.

                  Heidelberg
                  Bird flu case in the zoo
                  A goose died in the zoo at the beginning of the year. The zoo is taking action.
                  January 7th, 2022, 4:28 pm

                  Heidelberg. (RNZ) At the beginning of the year a goose died in the Heidelberg Zoo . And the investigation confirmed: the animal was infected with the avian flu pathogen H5N1. The zoo announced.

                  Presumably she got infected from one of the wild birds that fly to the lake. Further deaths in the zoo in connection with the bird flu pathogen are not yet known.

                  In order to protect the other feathered zoo inhabitants, security measures are now being taken immediately in close consultation with the veterinary authorities at the city of Heidelberg and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry for Food, Rural Areas and Consumer Protection. The zoo has over 400 birds in over 80 bird species, some of which are highly endangered such as the Socorro pigeons or the rare hornbills. In order to protect them as best as possible from infection, many of the birds have been brought into their homes or covered retreats since Friday. In order to avoid virus transmission by passing wild birds, all aviaries are covered with tarpaulins and tightly reinforced.

                  In addition, bodies of water are drained so as not to attract any more wild birds. Constant controls and samples are taken for all bird species in order to determine the spread of the pathogen as early as possible.

                            Avian influenza: H5N1 detected in several wild birds at Stormarn
                            Released 10 minutes ago
                            at the January 13, 2022
                            from Stormarnlive News Channel

                            Bad Oldesloe/Trittau – The suspicion of the presence of avian influenza (highly pathogenic avian influenza virus) has been confirmed in several wild birds that were found dead.

                            The national reference laboratory (Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut) has the virus type H5N1 with findings from January 10, 2022 in a barnacle goose in the municipality of Steinburg, in a mallard in the municipality of Trittau and with findings from January 12, 2022 in a mute swan in the municipality of Grabau confirmed.

                            In order to prevent any entry of the pathogen into poultry holdings, the district veterinary office issued a general decree of January 12, 2022, obliging animals to be kept in stables throughout the district and a ban on exhibitions, markets and events of a similar nature for poultry and other species of birds kept in captivity. ..
