Bulgaria reports new bird flu outbreak

SOFIA (Reuters) – Bulgaria’s food safety agency authorities reported on Wednesday an outbreak of the bird flu virus on a duck farm in the village of Yoglav in central Bulgaria and said birds on the farm were being culled.

A 3-km protection zone had been set around the farm and the movement of domestic, wild and other birds and has been banned within it, as has the sale of eggs and poultry, the food safety agency said in a statement.
