    Harmless bird flu virus in geese
    Malchin x 26.10.2017

    Is the bird flu season starting again? The H5N2 virus was detected in the Mecklenburg Lake District. However, this has no fatal consequences for the animals.
    The virus was detected in geese from a small free-range holding.

    The low pathogenic avian influenza virus H5N2 has been detected in breeding geese in the Mecklenburg Lake District. This is not a question of avian influenza, the Agrarministerium in Schwerin said on Thursday. "There is no pestilence here," said Minister Till Backhaus (SPD). In this case, the animals show no or slight symptoms.
    Infected animals are not killed

    The geese from a small free-range holding were taken saliva samples because some animals should participate in an exhibition. The virus was discovered during the test at the Landesamt für Landwirtschaft, Lebensmittelsicherheit und Fischerei. The farm was closed and the animals were not allowed to be exhibited. They do not have to be killed, according to the ministry, but can heal their flu.

    Minister Backhaus warned all poultry farmers of the need to comply with the hygienic measures to protect themselves against bird flu. A year ago the bird flu season had begun in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in early November. On the island of Riems near Greifswald a dead heron had been found, in which the virus H5N8 was detected.

      des oies reproductrices , sympa. Comme en France la tolérance pour 3200 canards, dehors , a été étendue pour tout le monde ( audépart c'était une tolérance pour les petites unités , mais avec le lobbying, cela a été étendu à tous ) , c'est toujours amusant de voir la communication officielle qui évoque la biosécurité ...
