Low Pathogenic Avian
Hits Lugo, Italy

By Jan Vullings
An outbreak of low pathogenic avian influenza, type H5N2, has been diagnosed on a poultry farm in Lugo, Italy. This has been notified by the Ministry of Agriculture.
Lugo is 25 km west of Ravenna, in Emilia Romano.
The farm included 7000 adult ducks, 3000 geese and 150 chickens. The infection was detected within the framework of the annual, routine sero-surveillance activities. No clinical symptoms were seen.
The holding was confined, and the animals will be culled. A restriction zone of one-km radius has been imposed around the site.
