Some restrictions to contain the spread of avian influenza have been lifted in Hajdú-Bihar County (Hungary), food safety authority NÉBIH said.
No cases of bird flu have been detected in the region since April 13, so protection zone restrictions were lifted on May 7, the authority said.
In April, NÉBIH established protection and surveillance zones in the county after identifying an outbreak at a turkey farm in Nádudvar. Close to 11,800 birds on the farm were destroyed.
If the situation remains favorable, the surveillance zone restrictions could be lifted on May 16, clearing the way for commercial deliveries of poultry from the area domestically and to markets in the European Union.
