      On the same day, Turkey reported an outbreak of H5N1 bird flu virus in the northern province of Kastamonu, the first case of the highly infectious strain in seven years.

            "We are entering a period where the avian flu will no longer be an issue as the weather gets warmer," Muezzinoglu said, adding that the Ministry of Health, Agriculture and Livestock had taken all necessary measures to prevent the virus from spreading, including imposing quarantines at some farms.
