Bird flu discovered in Edinburgh
It has been reported that bird flu has been detected
at a farm in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Tests routinely carried out on the farm showed signs of the virus in
several birds at Easter Norton Farm, near Edinburgh Airport, reported
News.Scotsman. Veterinary experts believe that the strain is not the deadly
highly pathogenic H5N1 strain.
Secondary tests are currently being carried out by the Department for
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in an effort to confirm the reports.
