Dutch kill 190,000 ducks to contain bird flu outbreak
The outbreak was detected at a farm in Biddinghuizen, about 70 kilometres (43 miles) west of Amsterdam, where about 180,000 ducks were put down together with another 10,000 within a one kilometre radius, the Dutch food and safety watchdog NVWA said.
“There are three other poultry farms within a three kilometre radius and they are being monitored,” the NVWA added in a statement.
Authorities have also imposed a ban on poultry and poultry product transport within a 10 kilometre radius, the statement said.
