DENMARK - Low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) has been found in another farm of breeding ducks.

The veterinary authority has sent Follow-up Report No. 2 dated 31 March to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).

Routine surveillance of a breeding holding with 3,700 mallards at Brenderup in the south of the country on 19 March revealed positive samples. All birds on the farm were destroyed on 25 March.

The presence of the H7 LPAI has been confirmed but the serotype still has to be identified.
