A week ago (Dec 23rd) the number of outbreaks of HPAI H5N8 in France stood at 47, all of which have been reported during the first three weeks of December. 

Today, that tally jumps to 75 outbreaks, an increase of 28 cases in the past 7 days.  Gers continues to see the most activity, with 39 outbreaks.

Along side these H5N8 outbreaks we've also seen a handful of other HPAI detections, including H5N5 and H5N9, along with several Low Path (LPAI) subtypes.
