UK: LPAI in Kent

2 November, 2020

A small poultry farm near Deal, Dover District in Kent has been ordered by the government to slaughter a flock of birds after the discovery of H5N2 low-pathogenic avian influenza. All 480 birds at the Kent site will be humanely culled to limit the spread of the disease. A 1km Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza (LPAI) Restricted Zone has also been put in place around the infected farm to limit the risk of the disease spreading.
