Bird Flu Found on Gotland

The Karlskrona bird was found in this populated area

The Swedish authorities have reported more cases of bird flu here, bringing the total to 25.

The National Veterinary Institute says two wild ducks found on the Baltic island of Gotland have tested positive for the H5 subtype, but more tests are needed to confirm if it is the deadly H5N1 strain.

Twenty-three other ducks from three locations on Sweden’s Baltic coast have been found carrying the H5 strain. Samples have been sent to a laboratory in Britain for confirmation.

The dead birds from Gotland were found on the ice off the eastern shore of the island.
