A total of 115 outbreaks of avian influenza had now been reported in Romania, according to Agriculture Ministry spokesman Adrian Tibu on Monday (29/05).
The avian influenza was spreading very rapidly in Romania, Tibu added.
Currently, just two of the six districts of the Romanian capital have not reported any outbreaks.
Local authorities on Monday continued large-scale disinfection and quarantines in the districts with reported outbreaks, as well as culling poultry raised by residents (Xinhua).
