France: MOA Now Reporting 166 Farms Hit By H5N8


Seven days ago France reported 129 farms had been affected by H5N8 avian influenza since the first week of December.   Today, that number rises to 166, a 28% increase in just a week, with roughly half of the new outbreaks appearing in Landes.
The extended prophylactic culling operations in Gers, Landes and the Haute-Pyrenees (see France Expands Preventative Culling As HPAI Outbreaks Continue To Rise) were reportedly nearing completion late last week.

In addition to these H5N8 outbreaks we've also seen a handful of of other HPAI detections, including H5N5 and H5N9, along with numerous Low Path (LPAI) subtypes over the past couple of months.
