Avian Influenza Outbreak in 2016

In September 2016, the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) released a warning about the spread of HPAI H5N8, when it was found in 17 water birds at Ubsu-Nur Lake in Russia.

 Despite this early warning, H5N8 spread south into India, affecting several states, and
west into Europe.

  Now, H5N8 has been detected in Hungary, Poland, Croatia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, Israel, and Iran...

This is the fourth wave of intercontinental movement of HPAI H5 viruses since 2005 and the spread of the virus is presumed as being mainly due to migratory wild birds.

When possible, vaccination of birds is the best prevention method in combination with stamping out, biosecurity and surveillance measures particularly in areas with high poultry density.

 Prevention measures help to ensure that birds do not become sick and die and the spread of the virus can be reduced or stopped.
