Bird Flu Risk Level In Denmark Has Been Elevated To High.

(CTN News) – The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (DVFA) has recently raised the threat level for avian influenza, commonly known as bird flu, from medium to high alert

. This decision, which will take effect on December 18, is a response to the increasing number of bird flu cases in wild birds throughout Denmark and neighboring European countries.

Additionally, there has been a rise in outbreaks within domestic poultry flocks.

The DVFA has emphasized the importance of preventing contact between domestic and wild birds by keeping all poultry, including chickens, ducks, and turkeys, indoors or in covered enclosures.

This measure aims to minimize the risk of transmission from wild Bird Flu, which are the primary carriers of the virus.

The DVFA has also advised poultry owners to ensure that feed and water troughs are covered and that surfaces and rainwater accessible to poultry are not contaminated with droppings from wild Bird Flu.

The DVFA has imposed a nationwide ban on animal fairs and gatherings involving poultry and captive birds to prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases.

Although the risk of transmission to humans is generally low, there have been isolated cases of individuals contracting the disease after close contact with infected Bird Flu.

The DVFA emphasizes the importance of adhering to the ban and practicing good hygiene. They are also working to educate the public and enhance disease surveillance systems.
