The Ministry of Agriculture reports that on 2 June 2017, the avian influenza virus has been confirmed in 3 poultry farms in Keispelt, Niederfeulen and Schrassig. These are 3 amateur farms in which all the poultry present were euthanized.
In order to limit an extension of the disease to other farms, all transport of live poultry and any exposure of poultry are prohibited for one week.
It is recommended that poultry be kept indoors. All feeding and watering must be done inside the buildings.
Any abnormal mortality has to be reported to a veterinarian.
It is reminded that this is an animal disease that does not affect humans and that any consumption of meat and eggs is safe for public health.
Depending on the outcome of the survey, a new communiqué will be issued next week.
