HPAI DIAGNOSED IN NORTHERN FRANCE

  

Mar 10, 2017

    

Reuters reported isolation of avian influenza virus from chickens on a farm near the port city of Dunkirk. 

The serotype of the isolate and its pathogenicity have not been disclosed as investigations are in progress. 

During previous months, most of the numerous avian influenza isolations have been in the Southwest quadrant of France specifically affecting the foie gras industry. 

The emergence of HPAI adjacent to the Channel represents a risk to neighboring Belgium and to the UK.
