Avian influenza hits duck farm in Bulgaria's Yambol

5 April, 2018

An outbreak of H5N8 avian influenza has been registered in a duck farm in the Bulgarian village of Zimnitsa near Yambol, in the country's southeast. All birds will be culled. 
Last month, the country's food safety agency said it will cull 140,000 hens to fend off an outbreak of H5N8 avian influenza virus in a farm in the northeastern region of Dobrich, near the border with Romania.
