In France, recorded three new cases of bird flu

On Monday it became known about detection of new cases of avian influenza in South-West France: the Dordogne region were found two infected ducks and one Guinea fowl in the Landes region.

The first case of bird flu was recorded in France last month and identified as H5N1, which, according to French authorities, differed from that known in Asia of the H5N1 strain.

In connection with the discovery of avian influenza was limited to the import of birds and poultry products from France in eight countries, including Japan, the largest exporter of French foie Gras, Reuters reports.

Although so far there is no evidence that bird flu can be transmitted to humans via food, some strains of the virus has led to death: in Asia there have been several deaths of people who have had close contact with animals.
