Bird flu diagnosed at bird trader Beernem

    To prevent the further spread of the virus, the poultry and birds present will be culled. A protection zone of 3 kilometers and a security zone of 10 kilometers are also set up in each case. Extra measures are taken in these restricted zones to prevent the spread of the virus. (Read more below the photo.)

    Every professional poultry farmer must also make an inventory within 24 hours and anyone who notices signs of disease in poultry or birds must consult a veterinarian.

    The FASFC suspects that infected wild birds are the cause of the outbreaks. The FASFC also reminds that private and professional poultry keepers are still obliged to feed the animals indoors
