After the poultry pester of the subtype H5N5 was detected in a poultry keeping in the district of Steinburg on Monday, further holdings of the same plant are affected. The National Reference Laboratory for Avian Influenza, the Friedrich Löffler Institute, also showed the virus in the night to Thursday in the sites of Grevenkop and Elskop.

Attitudes were blocked

The avian influenza regulation prescribes that the remaining 15,300 animals of the plant have to be killed. Previously, 18,400 animals of the Steinburg factory had already been killed or died.

The two sites were closed off. In order to protect the animals from being carried over, third parties are prohibited from entering the site. The Kreis Steinburg extended the Sperrzzirk and the observation area around the enterprise. He also triggered a catastrophe alarm in order to be able to approach additional staff at the police, fire brigade and other auxiliary staff in the short term.

First detection of H5N5 in poultry farming

The Friedrich-Löffler-Institut has, at the request of the country, sent an expert team to the district of Steinburg to clarify the cause of the outbreak. All possible entry and dissemination routes are examined.

The virus is the subtype H5N5, which has not yet occurred in any European animal husbandry up to the occurrence in the poultry keeping in Steinburg. It is highly aggressive, as is the case with the H5N8 exciter responsible for the avian influenza outbreaks. In the first turkeys, more than half of the 3,400 animals died of the disease within 48 hours, all others having disease symptoms.

Avian extends out - Steinburg triggers disaster alarm

from 
 

18,400 animals have already been killed. Now the bird flu has broken out in a third stable with 15,300 turkeys.

KIEL / GREVENKOP | Although 18,400 animals have been killed, the avian influenza spreads on the turkey operation in Steinburg further. Meanwhile, all four positions of operation in Steinburg are affected, as Agriculture Minister Robert Habeck (Green) on Thursday said on the sidelines of the parliament session. According to the Avian Influenza Regulation, the killing of the remaining 15,300 animals of the plant would be initiated as soon as possible.

It is still unclear how the virus can spread despite numerous protective measures.

The two attitudes in Grevenkop and Elskop were closed off early in the morning. To protect against the spread of animal disease is prohibited from strangers, to enter the premises . The Kreis Steinburg extended the Sperrzzirk and the observation area around the enterprise. He also triggered catastrophic alarms in order to be able to approach additional staff at the police, fire brigade and other auxiliary staff in the short term.

How the virus got there is unclear. Habeck pointed out that the turkeys are open on the side. "We have a new virus," Habeck said. He is concerned that "we are at the beginning of a new wave".

 

In the plant the avian influenza had broken out at the weekend. A mutated bird flu pathogen (H5N5) was detected at two sites of a turkey mast farm in the district of Steinburg. "The new attitudes are spatially removed from the first two," explains the ministry.

 

To clarify the cause, the FLI has sent an expert team on epidemiological inquiry at the request of the country. In doing so, all possible entry and dissemination routes - including interlacing, feed, trade and transport routes as well as management of the farms or possible entries by wild birds - are examined.
