    First avian influenza cases in MV confirmed this autumn
    Status: October 21, 2021 3:34 p.m.

    In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania there are bird flu cases for the first time this autumn. The virus type H5N1 was detected in a stork and a goose in the Greifswald zoo and in a sea eagle on the island of Koos.

    Three dead storks and two geese were discovered in the Greifswald zoo, suspected of having avian influenza. A stork had been examined virologically in the State Office for Agriculture, Food Safety and Fisheries in Rostock, as the Ministry of Agriculture announced on Thursday. The avian influenza virus H5N1 was detected. The birds in the zoo should now be tested at regular intervals. The stocks are not initially killed.
    Loeffler Institute: H5N1 confirmed

    This was confirmed in the national reference laboratory for avian influenza at the Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI) on the island of Riems and the H5N1 pathogen was also found in a dwarf goose. The Greifswald zoo was already affected by the animal disease in spring 2017. The FLI also found the virus in a dead sea eagle found on Koos Island.

    The zoo remains closed for the time being

    According to the director, the zoo will initially remain closed. Official veterinarian Holger Vogel said that more than 40 other samples were taken for examination, for example from a rhea, bantam, cranes or a buzzard. Depending on the result, decisions about possible killings will be made. As far as possible, animals were housed in stables.
    Backhaus appeals to poultry farmers in MV

    Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Agriculture Minister Till Backhaus (SPD) appealed to poultry farmers in the state to be particularly vigilant and to strictly adhere to the biosecurity measures. This includes informing the responsible veterinary and food control office about unclear illnesses and deaths in poultry and having the animals examined for avian influenza as soon as possible. "Furthermore, wild birds are not allowed to have access to food, litter and objects and animals are not allowed to be soaked in surface water to which wild birds have access," said Backhaus. It must be prevented that the virus is introduced into the livestock population. "The Christmas business is just around the corner and I therefore advise poultry farmers to slaughter stocks that are due for slaughter now."

    So far a confirmed case in Schleswig-Holstein

    A first confirmed case this autumn had already occurred in the neighboring state of Schleswig-Holstein. The epidemic is usually rampant, especially in the winter months. Bird migration plays a role in this. A year ago, 350,000 animals fell victim to avian influenza in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
