Bird flu found in northern Israel, same strain as catastrophic 2021 outbreak

November 22, 2022 - from Ynet.com:

"Turkeys infected with avian flu were found in a slaughterhouse in northern Israel, the Agriculture Ministry said Tuesday, raising fears of a new outbreak of the virus that ravaged domestic and wild fowl in the country a year ago.

"The virus was discovered in turkeys from Kibbutz Shluhot, located near Beit She’an.

"Tests revealed that the fowl were infected with the same strain of bird flu, H5N1, which ravaged coops across northern Israel and led to the culling of hundreds of thousands of birds last winter.

"Poultry from the affected slaughterhouse was not sold to distributors and both it and poultry sheds within a 6-mile (10-kilometer) radius of Shluhot were quarantined, the Agricultural Ministry said.

"The ministry also called for the immediate transfer of all organic, free-range and other outdoor chickens to closed facilities."
