This is the fifth industrial farm hit by the highly pathogenic avian influenza type A in southern Bulgaria since December, reported Reuters.

Bird flu is often fatal for poultry. It cannot be transmitted through food, though some human cases have raised concern among epidemiologists.

A wave of bird flu in Asia and Europe has a greater risk of spreading to humans because of a high number of variants, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said recently.
