Media reports cite poultry at two adjacent farms in Kamperveen, where H5 has been confirmed. These three farms almost certainly have H5N8, increasing the total number of farms in The Netherlands to five and the European total to seven.

INTERIOR Bird flu is established by three companies in the Overijssel Kamperveen. That the Ministry of Economic Affairs announced today .
The approximately 10,000 animals at the first company in Kamperveen where bird flu was found "culled as soon as possible" by the Dutch Food and Consumer Authority (NVWA). In the other two poultry farms, which are within a radius of 1 kilometer from the first farm, the regulator found "clinical symptoms" that fit bird flu. For that reason, companies are still culled today.

This morning it became clear that the animals Kamperveen infected with an H5 strain of bird flu . Whether this is also true for the two new cases is unknown. Further research In all three cases show whether there is the highly contagious H5N8 variant that was previously identified in South Holland and Utrecht. Probably the outcome of the investigation later today.

The H5N8 variant was discovered last weekend on a farm in Hekendorp, in the province of Utrecht. The second case was discovered in the Netherlands, in South Holland Ter Aar, has come to now also established that it is this highly infectious variant.


The Department has instituted a 10-kilometer area in the previous cases. All poultry farms in the area are examined for bird flu. That there are 34 in total.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs said after the adoption of the bird flu in Ter Aar been a temporary nationwide transport ban for poultry and other poultry, eggs, manure and used bedding. The ban also applies to animals of mixed farms where poultry is kept. And manure By the dispatch of 72 hours a shortage threatens to eggs in supermarkets.

Other measures:

For hobby farmers of poultry and other poultry is for up to 72 hours ophok- and guard duty
For commercial poultry farms that requirement already applies to at least December 18, 2014
Until December 18 are all the poultry and mixed farms with poultry visitors a scheme
For the Netherlands is a ban on hunting the animals force.
Too, and a collective exhibition ban ban for poultry and other birds.
In Germany and the United Kingdom, the H5N8 virus also found. The flu variant from eastern China can be transmitted to humans, although no cases of it are known. The health risks appear to be bad. The control bodies and authorities extremely quickly responded to the first outbreak, said professor of virology Ron Fouchier of Erasmus MC in Rotterdam earlier this week in NRC Handelsblad (€) .

Three more cases of bird flu detected on Dutch farms

Friday 21 November 2014 16.43
Dutch officials have detected bird flu on three more farms, but cannot yet say if the strains are a highly contagious variety discovered earlier this week.

The Dutch economic affairs ministry also confirmed that a second bird flu outbreak, detected yesterday on a farm close to the first case east of The Hague, was the highly pathogenic H5N8 strain, previously detected only in Asia.

Some strains of avian influenza are fatal for chickens, and pose a health threat to humans, who can fall sick after handling infected poultry.

Dutch authorities have said human infection can only occur following "intense and direct contact" with infected birds.

The latest outbreak was first reported on a small farm in Kamperveen, around 100km north of the first outbreaks, the economic affairs ministry said in a statement.

"The bird flu virus has been detected on a farm with around 10,000 chickens," it said.

Later the ministry added that bird flu symptoms had also been detected on two other farms less than one kilometre from the farm in Kamperveen.

The birds on all three farms will be destroyed and the farms disinfected, the ministry said, with tests being carried out to establish if the strain is H5N8.

Dutch officials on Sunday banned the transport of poultry around the Netherlands after the discovery of a highly infectuous strain of bird flu following outbreaks of similar strains of the virus in Britain and Germany.

Some 150,000 birds were destroyed at the farm where the initial outbreak was detected.

The H5N1 strain of bird flu has killed more than 400 people, mainly in southeast Asia, since first appearing in 2003.

Another strain of bird flu, H7N9, has claimed more than 170 lives since emerging in 2013.

The H7N7 strain of avian flu severely hit the Netherlands in 2003 with health authorities destroying some 30 million birds in an effort to quash an outbreak.

There are some 95m chickens on Dutch poultry farms and egg exports totalled some €10.6bn in 2011, according to the latest Dutch statistics.

Dutch authorities say they will slaughter poultry at a cluster of 3 farms after new cases of bird flu were found in the town of Kamperveen [Overijssel province], in the 3rd outbreak in the Netherlands this week.

A new infection was detected Friday morning (21 Nov 2014) at a chicken farm in Kamperveen, roughly 100 km [about 62 miles] away from the previous infections, the Economic Affairs Ministry said. During a check of nearby farms, one farm was found with birds showing signs of illness [according to Dutch press, a duck farm - Mod.AS].

At least 25 000 chickens and ducks are being slaughtered on the farms and the ministry said it has also ordered birds slaughtered at a 3rd [chicken] farm as a precaution, given its location within 1 km [about 0.6 mile] radius of the 1st 2.

The ministry said tests to determine the exact strain of the virus are being conducted. The earlier Dutch cases and another this week at a duck farm in England were confirmed as H5N8, which British officials said poses a very low public health risk.

The government has banned the transport of poultry and eggs nationwide.

Although damages have been limited so far, the chairman of the country's Poultry Farmers' Union said the outbreak in the new location is worrying, given there are 34 more poultry farms within a 10 km [about 6.2 mile] radius.

In 2003 a major outbreak of bird flu in the Netherlands caused an estimated 300 million euros [about USD 371 million] in damages.

Communicated by:

[The Dutch authorities have officially submitted to the OIE follow-up report No. 1, dated 21 Nov 2014, with the confirmation of the 2nd HPAI H5N8 outbreak in the Netherlands (covered as suspected in archive no. 20141120.2977844). The affected population, on a farm in Ter Aar, South Holland province, is reportedly "layer hens and partly free range". The following statistics were included:
Species / Susceptible / Cases / Deaths / Destroyed / Slaughtered
Birds / 43 000 / 100 / 100 / 42 900 / 0

For additional details and a map, please see http://www.oie.int/wahis_2/public/wahid ... rtid=16565.

Laboratory confirmation of the 3rd and 4th outbreaks, in Kamperveen (a small village in the Dutch province of Overijssel) is anticipated. In case confirmed as HPAI H5N8, this means that the virus is circulating in at least 3 provinces: Utrecht, South Holland and Overijssel. Poultry on commercial farms, and particularly on free range farms, are readily exposed to wild birds and their droppings.

The Belgian press has reported today (21 Nov 2014) about preventive measures by the authorities, particularly distribution of guidelines and call for alertness to poultry holders. - Mod.AS

Bird flu virus may spread by migratory birds

A disaster threatens the Dutch poultry sector now also on companies in the Overijssel Kamperveen bird flu has broken away from the first two infected farms in Utrecht and South Holland. "If you draw a line between Hekendorp and Kamperveen, it is our Veluwe area in between," said President Gert Jan Oplaat the Dutch Union of Poultry Farmers (NVP).

By: Peter de Graaf November 21, 2014, 20:58 ONE
The Veluwe is a concentration of chicken and turkey farms. "We sit down with clenched buttocks hope it does not spread to the Veluwe 'says Oplaat. "Because if that happens, then repeats the disaster of 2003, when a third of the poultry culled. The sector was facing 300 million in direct damage and a multitude of indirect damage, including the loss of export markets. " The Ministry of Economic Affairs announced today that bird flu has been detected in at least two poultry farms in Kamperveen. The contamination on breeding with 10 thousand chickens established. The neighbors, a company with 15 thousand ducks, the animals exhibit symptoms that almost certainly indicate bird flu. Preventive culling all birds at both companies were gassed as soon as possible. A third company within a kilometer of the two companies affected state is destroyed as well. "We take any risks," the Dutch Food and Consumer Authority. Are 24 poultry farms investigated in a radius of 10 kilometers.

It is not yet known whether the infected farms have had contact with the farm in Hekendorp, where the first case of bird flu occurred this week. In Overijssel "But this is a very water-rich environment, so maybe have other birds to make something with it," said Mayor Bort Koelewijn van Kampen. He has the immediate vicinity promulgated an emergency regulation, which no one in the field should without permission. was between the first two infected farms in Hekendorp and Ter Aar. no contact Therefore, the strong suspicion that the virus is spread by migratory birds exist. But such certainty is not there. Dutch Institute of Ecology (NIOO) examines with the Erasmus Medical Centre how the bird flu virus is spreading. Risky periods According NVP-chairman Oplaat virologists have been warning for some time about the risks of migratory birds. He therefore agrees that all poultry must be kept indoors in 'risky' periods, when many migratory birds flying over Netherlands. According to him, the chance that outside chickens infected 7.7 times that happened with chickens inside. But the virus can also be walked in through boots or clothing of personnel. Therefore, State Secretary of Economic Affairs Sharon Dijksma hammered after crisis talks on strict compliance with hygiene by farmers. Many farmers have showers and changing rooms installed in the house. But even then there are risks by flying birds. "It only drop something on a mouse, and that mouse is a poultry inside and it happened," says Oplaat.
