14-02-2007 | |

Zero out of over 12,000 birds have tested positive for highly pathogenic strains of avian influenza, as shown by the results of Canada’s second annual Wild Bird Survey for Avian Influenza.

Samples were taken from birds across Canada and Iceland – live and dead, migratory and resident.

Various avian flu subtypes were evident in the survey, including H5 subtypes, however, only low pathogenic strains, which is not uncommon in wild birds.
