Outbreak is in Scortichino, Bondeno, Ferrara
September 5, 2013
Avian influenza has arrived in Bondeno, hitting laying hens of a small domestic breeding in Scortichino. This time to realize it was the owner of the house, he found some of his dead birds and, aware of the recent outbreaks of the H7N7 virus in Ferrara, he immediately had an inkling of what could be the cause. The checks carried out by veterinarians ASL then confirmed the suspicions: the virus, which could have been brought in Emilia by migrating ducks, also came in Scortichino.
The measures to deal with this new outbreak, the first outside of factory farms, in all likelihood will remain, which are familiar in recent weeks: the chickens have already been culled and destroyed eggs to remove all traces of the infection.
