Technicians from Mexico's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development confirmed a case of highly pathogenic avian influenza AH5N1 earlier this week. The isolation was carried out in a falcon that fed on wild birds in the Lerma River basin and died from the disease.

    The National Service of Health, Safety and Agri-food Quality (Senasica) urges commercial poultry producers to raise biosecurity measures on their farm and to comply with the provisions of Dinesa and report suspicious cases.

      The Senasica is currently taking more samples in the region, in order to confirm the presence or absence of the virus in other wild birds.
