Avian Influenza update - first epidemiology report published

30 November 2007

The first epidemiology report into this H5N1 avian influenza outbreak has been published. No evidence has so far been found to indicate introduction via infected poultry or poultry products or vehicles/people transporting them, from countries which have undisclosed infection in their domestic turkey, geese and duck population. Wild birds cannot be ruled out as a source of infection; there is no evidence of H5N1 infection in the local wild bird population or in GB as a whole, but continued surveillance may help clarify the infection status of the wild bird population. Further surveillance, testing and epidemiological work on this outbreak is ongoing.
