France: MOA Reports 246 Farm Outbreaks Of H5N8

















#12,228
 

Meanwhile in France, despite extensive prophylactic culling of `healthy web-footed birds bred outdoors' in three departments (Gers, Landes, and Haute-Pyrenees) last month, the rate of new outbreaks seems little affected, with the MOH announcing their 246th farm outbreak today.  
This is an increase of 46 outbreaks (23%) over the past 11 days.
In addition to these H5N8 outbreaks we've also seen a handful of of other HPAI detections, including H5N5 and H5N9, along with numerous Low Path (LPAI) subtypes over the past couple of months.
