Greifswald (dpa/mv) - According to the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute (FLI) as a result of a poultry show in the north-east, bird flu has not yet spread as it is now. A spokeswoman said on Tuesday on the island of Riems that one could definitely speak of a super spreader event with a view to the state association show of breeders of poultry.
In connection with the show on the penultimate weekend in Demmin (Mecklenburg Lake District), 27 positive findings have been counted so far. However, the number does not have to stand for 27 postures, since duplications could be included. The Schwerin Ministry of Agriculture recently spoke of 18 affected small farms and 7 suspected cases. More than 1000 animals were killed. According to the animal disease information system (TSIS), cases have so far been reported in all districts except Vorpommern-Rügen and the cities of Rostock and Schwerin.
The Ministry of Agriculture sees the risk of entry into livestock. "This would possibly be an existential situation for the holders," said a spokesman on Tuesday.
