Bird flu strain at UK farm confirmed as H5N8
英语新闻:英国发现禽流感H5N8病毒病例


据法国国际广播电台11月18日报道,英国当地时间11月18日,该国农业部证实,在东北部地区检验出禽流感H5N8病毒。报道指出,由于这种禽流感病毒在家禽之间会大量扩散,主管单位建议业者做好控管措施,以免疫情扩大。

The strain of bird flu found at a British farm in north England has been identified as H5N8, the same as the one recently identified in the Netherlands and Germany, according to the environment department.

The culling of 6,000 ducks at the farm in East Yorkshire, where a case of bird flu was confirmed last Sunday, has already begun, officials said.

According to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the disease was confirmed as the H5N8 strain, the same as the strain at a chicken farm in the Netherlands, and in Germany.

However, the advice from Public Health England remained that, the risk to public health from the virus was "very low", and the Food Standards Agency has said there is "no food safety risk for consumers".

A spokeswoman for Defra said the cull to prevent the potential spread of infection was being carried out in a safe and humane manner by fully-trained staff from the government's Animal and Plant Health Agency.

BBC reported that, the EU officials said migratory birds heading south for winter are probably responsible for the British bird flu case and the recent outbreaks in the Netherlands and Germany.(新华网)
