Hungarian food safety authority Nébih said it detected avian flu virus H5N8 at a duck farm in Bács-Kiskun County (S Hungary). Nébih said it had started to destroy the 32,000 ducks on the farm. It has also established a 3km protection zone and a 10km surveillance zone around the site. Nébih said the obligation to keep poultry in enclosed areas is still in force. Avian flu was last detected in Hungary in January 2020.
