Oxfordshire H7 Avian flu confirmed as Highly Pathogenic (HPA)

The H7 Avian Influenza found in laying hens at a farm in Banbury , Oxfordshire on 2nd June has been confirmed today as highly pathogenic (HPA)by The Chief Veterinary Officer, Nigel Gibbens.

Further laboratory tests and a detailed epidemiological investigation are in progress to identify the N type and possible relationships with previously identified viruses.

3km inner and 10km outer Temporary Control Zone (details) have been established . All bird gatherings in the Temporary Control Zone are banned. Other movements of birds and some products are also banned in the whole of the Temporary Control Zone.

Avian flu is an animal disease and has negligible implications for human health unless humans come in close contact and handle diseased birds.
