    Silence in the UK at Defra and in the press.

    The source of the report cited in ProMED is the website of the Ministry of Agriculture in Japan.

    I checked with 2 friends in Japan: no translation bug, no recycled news, the date and the year is: may 18, 2010,
    published may 19, 2010.

        Hi @Dutchy123 – there isn’t H5 in Nottinghamshire. The routine investigation is now closed -- testing ruled out a notifiable disease.

            ----------------------------------------------------
            Through programmes of active surveillance for notifiable avian
            influenza in domestic poultry we occasionally detect 'apparent'
            serological reactors (in accordance with the use of standard
            international methods) in a small number of birds in some flocks of
            domestic waterfowl. On a precautionary basis further immediate
            investigations are conducted in these flocks (which are temporarily
            placed under restriction until results are available) based upon
            clinical examination and sampling for virological testing (including
            by real-time RT-PCR) to rule out active infection.

            Investigations in the cited case have been completed with negative
            results and restrictions on this farm have been lifted.

            The active surveillance is part of an EU wide mandatory programme in
            domestic poultry for reportable AI.
