HPAI Cases: Nebraska confirms new case, Canada has a new hotspot near border
Over the weekend, Nebraska’s Department of Agriculture confirmed the 13th outbreak in the state so far this year. It happened at a commercial flock and affected nearly 2 million laying hens.
The entire flock will be culled, and authorities have set up a roughly six-mile control zone.
As the U.S. passes the deadly milestone for the virus, Canada has a new hotspot just across the U.S. border near Washington State.
The Fraser Valley has seen rapid increases in cases - at least 13 commercial farms tested positive there. These affected farms include broiler breeder and turkey operations.
So far in Canada, nearly 4 million birds have died this year from HPAI.
