Two cases of avian flu were diagnosed on a small farm with poultry. The first was in the village of Zbehy, near Nitra, second in the village of Cífer near Trnava, the TASR newswire reported.
The Agriculture Ministry calls on farmers to be careful and points out to the implementation of preventive measures, as the avian flu was also found in Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
“Avian flu threatens all the V4 countries,” said Agriculture Minister Gabriela Matečná, as quoted by TASR. “It is important that farmers implement preventive measures and were maximally vigilant these days. The biggest risk is there where domestic poultry can get into contact with wild birds.”
