Bird flu has broken out at two places in southern Sweden, analysts at the National Veterinary Institute (SVA) report.

News agency TT reports that one infection case involves a wild bird found in the municipality of Vellinge in Skåne which has been confirmed as having the bird flu strain H5N8. The second case involves an egg-laying hen flock outside Helsingborg.

Earlier this week, Sweden raised its alert level for poultry to the second highest after an outbreak of bird flu in neighbouring Denmark.
