Hungary has reported an outbreak of the highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza virus at a goose farm, Reuters reported, citing the National Food Chain Safety Office (Nebih) on Wednesday.

The outbreak in the county of Bekes led to the slaughter of more than 3,000 geese on the farm where the virus was detected.

Earlier this month Nebih reported H5N1 outbreaks at two farms in neighbouring Bacs-Kiskun county.
