“Unfortunately, the spread of bird flu continues. Now I have confirmed another occurrence in a commercial farm in the Svitava region in the village of Sklené. Together with the management, we are currently going to the inspectorate of the State Veterinary Administration in Litomyšl,” he said on his profile https://twitter.com/MarekVyborny/status/1753413976178786673 Minister of Agriculture Marek Výborný with the fact that the measures will be taken in a similar regime as was the case with Kosořín.
“We will inform you about the next procedure,” said Výborný. Zbyněk Semerád, the central director of the State Veterinary Administration, will also be present at the briefing, which was called for half past five in the afternoon in Litomyšl.
“For now, we are waiting for confirmation from the laboratory,” Radek Axmann from the State Veterinary Administration of the Pardubice Region told Novinka in the afternoon.
