Bird flu has struck a poultry farm in Germany, which has been forced to prepare an initiative in which up to 70,000 poultry could be slaughtered, according to Reuters.

The spokesperson for the local authorities of the Landkreis Rostock district has stated that some 4,500 chickens from this farm near Rostock in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Antepomerania would have to be euthanized due to an outbreak of bird flu type H5N8. However, the fact that the farm has multiple locations could increase the total number of animals to 70,000.

On the other hand, the northern German state, Schleswig-Holstein, has also recorded another H5N8 infection on a farm in the Kreis Nordfriesland area, with about 1,000 ducks, geese and chickens slaughtered.

These cases have not been the only ones affected in Europe, since during this last week other countries such as France or Denmark have become victims of this disease that, as suspected, wild birds continue to spread. Spain, for its part, has raised the level of surveillance and biosecurity in poultry farms to protect animals from this virus.
