Poultry Found with Newscastle Disease

The last third of 30,000 infected hens at a farm outside Norrköping, southwest of Stockholm, were put to death Sunday.

The hens were found to be carrying Newscastle Disease. The virus is extremely contagious among birds, but poses few hazards to human health.

The outbreak is the third in the province of Östergötland in the past three years.
