Bird flu has been identified at a duck farm in Nyírbátor, in north-east Hungary, food safety authority Nébih said on Thursday. Protection and surveillance zones were established after the virus subtype H5N1 was detected at the farm. Over 93,000 ducks are being destroyed. Until now, recent outbreaks of bird flu have affected farms only in the south of Hungary, in Bács-Kiskun County and Csongrád-Csanád County.
