H5N1 Strain Confirmed on Game Farm

Published fredag 17 mars 2006 kl 17.32

Sweden has confirmed the lethal H5N1 strain of bird flu in a duck on a game farm in the east of the country.

According to the European Union this is the second case on a commercial farm in the EU.  

All birds on the farm, around 500 mallards and 150 pheasants, will be killed and destroyed on Friday.

This is the second confirmed outbreak of avian influenza H5N1 on a commercial farm in the EU, with the first being the outbreak on a turkey farm in the Department of Ain in France in late February.
