Event details

Cambodia has reported the first outbreak of highly pathogenic H5N6 bird flu virus among poultry, World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) said in a statement late Thursday. Citing the information provided by the Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, the statement said the virus infected poultry birds at a market in the country’s southern Takeo province’s Daunkeo district. The new H5N6 strain was detected by the Pasteur Institute in Cambodia late last month, the statement said, without specifying whether the infected birds were chickens, ducks or other types of poultry. According to the statement, animal health authorities have established surveillance and protection zones around the affected area following the case. No one has been infected yet.
