Zoonotic H5N8 bird flu strain highly contagious: Dutch gov

The Dutch government has warned the highly contagions strain, H5N8, could be transmitted from poultry to humans, and have imposed a three-day nationwide ban on the transportation of poultry and eggs.

Authorities are destroying more than 150,000 birds at the infected farm, in the village of Hekendorp, and  have set up a 10-km (six-mile) exclusion zone, said local reports.

Some 700 Dutch poultry farms export more than 6 billion eggs each year.

H5N8 cases have also been reported in China, Germany, Japan and the UK, so far this year.

The deadly H5N1 strain has a mortality rate of about 60% in humans, killing about 400 people over the past ten years.

FIRE-EARTH Models estimate that more than 500 million birds have been destroyed over the past 10 years to prevent the spread of various avian flu strains.
