B2B moves south in Germany

Expatica.com reports Bird flu spreads to two more German states.

Bird flu spread to two more German states on Friday as authorities stepped up measures to stop the outbreak from reaching domestic poultry. The new cases of the H5N1 strain were found in three wild ducks in the northern state of Schleswig Holstein and in Baden-Wuerttemberg in the south. Authorities immediately set up exclusion zones in a three- kilometre radius around the areas were the dead birds were found. The transport of poultry and poultry products was banned for 21 days in the affected area of Schleswig Holstein.

The original outbreak on Ruegen Island was in the state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.
