Fourth H5N1 outbreak in Poland

9 December, 2007

A fourth outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza has been found in central Poland, about 50 km from three sites found last week.
The latest cases of the virus were the first of avian influenza among poultry as opposed to wild birds reported earlier. They are also the first cases of the H5N1 virus in Poland since 2006, when several swans were infected.
