More HPAI cases in Spain

12 February, 2022

Spanish authorities have slaughtered more than 130,000 hens after an outbreak of avian influenza was detected at an intensive farming operation in the northern region of Castile and Leon (Íscar).
At the end of January, poultry at a farm in Andalusia, Spain’s southernmost autonomous region tested positive for the H5N1 HPAI virus. 41,000 birds were culled. Around 270,000 birds have been killed so far in 2022 to prevent the spread of bird flu across the country.
