Azerbaijan, Iraqi Kurdistan Ban Poultry Imports From Iran

Azerbaijan and the Iraqi Kurdistan Region have temporarily banned the import of poultry and related products from Iran after two outbreaks of the highly contagious H5N8 bird flu virus were reported at farms located in the Tehran region last week.
The outbreaks killed some 5,600 birds out of a total of nearly 283,500 on the farms, the World Organization for Animal Health said, citing a report from Iran’s Agriculture Ministry, Eranico reported.
“A post-outbreak investigation to trace the source of infection is ongoing to detect the probable spread and circulation of this sub-type,” the ministry said in the report. The H5N8 virus has never been found in humans but has infected wild birds and farms in several European countries over the past weeks.
