The H7-birdflu-outbreak is caused by a mild version of the H7-virus. It is believed that the virus was spread by wild birds. Because of the risk of development to a more dangerous version of the H7-virus all the 8800 chicken on the effected farm were killed.

On 60 farms in the 3 kilometer region there is a check to see if the virus has spread. The chances of people or other animals getting infected are very small.
