HPAI H7N5 in Germany

4 July, 2024

Germany is reporting an outbreak of HPAI H7N5 at a laying farm (91,000 birds) in Bad Bentheim, on their border with the Netherlands. Since 2003, no outbreak with a highly pathogenic of serotype H7 has occurred so close to the Netherlands. For now, the big concern with this outbreak is the close proximity of a large number of poultry farms.
