Four dead salvaged from the Landwehr Canal swans of influenza virus was yesterday in the State Laboratory Berlin-Brandenburg detected type H5. 
The final confirmation by the National Reference Laboratory - the Friedrich Loeffler Institute - (FLI) is still pending.

All animals are swans from the Landwehrkanal near the Baerwald bridge. Thus, the boundaries of the restricted area on Friday set up accordingly up to this north-south connection:

Underground station Alt Tempelhof, Schöneberg Street / Manteuffelstraße , Kreuz Schöneberg Bayerischer Platz, wittenbergplatz, S-Bahn station Bellevue, Central Station, S-Bahnhof Oranienburger Str.

Since the first outbreak of avian influenza pollen of type H5N8 in wild animals on Lake Plön in Schleswig-Holstein on 08.11.2016 37 wild birds from Berlin were examined for the presence of the virus of avian influenza of subtype H5 in the state laboratory Berlin-Brandenburg. Up to now, 5 animals have been positively evaluated.

The risk that by this hotspot of the virus could be introduced into poultry flocks are mitigated by the establishment of a Sperrbezirks, an observation area and a freewheeling prohibition of dogs and cats in the forbidden area. 
Poultry farmers throughout Berlin have aufzustallen their animals and the locations with the prescribed Biosafety measures.

For further information, please contact your local office.
