13 December, 2018

H5N8 avian influenza outbreaks strike Iranian poultry farms. Iran's agriculture ministry has reported three more highly pathogenic H5N8 outbreaks in poultry. The detections occurred at three different locations in East Azarbayejan province in the country's far northwest.
All three involved turkeys and chickens, two affecting village birds and the other a livestock market. The outbreaks come about 2 weeks after Iran reported an H5N8 outbreak in Tehran province.
