The measures include biosecurity in farms, more frequent laboratory control and prevention across the country. Birds could be transported only after laboratory tests, Focus Information Agency reports.

Earlier this week BFSA registered avian influenza, type H5, in a duck farm in Varbitsa, Dimitrovgrad municipality, and in a laying hen farm in Bogdanitsa, Sadovo.

Measures have been taken to limit and prevent any spread of the virus to other poultry farms.
