Bird Flu is back: highly contagious strain H5N8 detected at Dutch poultry farm
A highly contagious strain bird flu was detected at a poultry farm in the village of Hekendorp, south of Amsterdam on Saturday.The Dutch authorities are in the process of slaughtering all 150,000 birds at the farm.

The H5N8 stain has never been detected in humans. The same strain of bird flu was reported at a farm in Heinrichswalde, in Germany’s northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on November 4, Reuters reported. More than 30,000 turkeys were slaughtered at the German farm, according to DW.

A past outbreak of H5N8 led to the slaughtering of millions of farm birds in South Korea, China and Japan, Reuters reported.

In response, the Netherlands imposed a 72-hour ban on transportation of poultry products across the country, Reuters reported.

Bird flu poses a health threat to humans as they can contract the virus when handling infected poultry, AFP reported.
