UK: Avian influenza outbreak in Oxfordshire - The report

18 June, 2008

Defra has published an epidemiology report on the outbreak of avian influenza in Oxfordshire earlier this month.
The report suggests that the outbreak of highly pathogenic H7N7 Avian influenza, which has so far been confined to a single premises, could have derived from a low pathogenic strain already present on the farm. Analysis and investigations are ongoing, however, and a number of other source hypotheses are being considered.
