font size    

A new outbreak of highly-virulent bird flu has been confirmed in South Korea's central city of Anseong, 77 km south of Seoul, said the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry on Saturday.

The new case of bird flu was found at a breeding farm in Anseong, said the ministry in a statement.

Following the new outbreak, the South Korean government has dispatched a team of quarantine specialists to Anseong to support the containment efforts including destruction of over 1,000 chickens within three km of the area where the bird flu was found, the ministry said.

All livestock within a 10-km radius will be restricted from transfer, the ministry said.

It has been the sixth bird flu outbreak in the country since Nov. 25, when the first outbreak in three years was reported on a poultry farm in Iksan, about 230 km south of Seoul.
