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

Authorities said that they have begun the slaughter of more than 25,000 turkeys on the farm where the virus was detected. The outbreak was reported in the county of Hajdu-Bihar.

Last month Nebih reported H5N1 outbreaks at three farms in Bacs-Kiskun and Bekes counties.
