Suspected Avian Flu Outbreak in Norwegian Turkeys

7 March 2016, at 12:00am

NORWAY - An outbreak of avian influenza is suspected on a turkey farm in Østfold after routine surveillance detected antibodies.

No clinical symptoms have been detected however.

Laboratory tests conducted by the Veterinary Institute over the weekend have so far been unable to confirm the active infection of influenza in the turkey flock where the antibodies were detected.

There is therefore a need for new samples and new analysis.
