Serbia on Saturday confirmed its first case of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu in a rooster, agricultural officials announced.

The test results have been confirmed by the European Union reference laboratory in Weybridge, UK, a statement made by the Serbian Agriculture Ministry said.

The infected rooster was found on March 15 in an area near the Bosnian border, officials said.

As a precautionary measure, more than 30 people in the affected area were under intense medical supervision. In the meantime, veterinarians are monitoring all fowl in a 10 km radius.

The H5N1 strain has killed more than 100 people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
