The poultry farmer’s vet found symptoms associated with so-called highly pathogenic avian flu. Last night’s analysis of the samples showed that it is indeed this form of bird flu.
Therefore, strict safety requirements apply to the area around the infected company. There are 9 other poultry farms within a radius of 3 kilometers. Samples are taken there to see if they are also infected. If that is the case, those companies will also be cleared. A transport ban applies within the area.
This also applies to the area within a radius of 10 kilometers around the infected farm. There are another 25 poultry farms. These are not yet being tested for avian influenza, but they are faced with restrictions such as transport bans and strict visitor requirements.
Last week, Minister Carola Schouten of Agriculture already announced a housing requirement for commercially kept poultry because bird flu had been detected in wild water birds. This obligation to keep up is now being expanded. Non-commercial poultry farmers (hobby chickens) now also have to keep their animals in the stable.
