H5 in Poland

Via Sofia News Agency in Bulgaria: Bird Flu Hits Poland Too.

Poland has become one more in a row of countries hit by the H5 bird flu, media reported Sunday.

Two dead swans found in the center of the country along Vistula River in Torun tested positive for the virus, but authorities are still to determine whether it is of the deadly-to-humans H5N1 strain.

In the meantime Romania detected two possible bird flu cases at a Danube village, and has started slaughtering birds in the area as a preventative measure.
