Czech Republic reports H5N8 bird flu outbreak at poultry farm

PRAGUE, Jan 22 (Reuters) - The Czech Republic recorded an H5N8 bird flu outbreak at a small farm in the south of the country, killing around half of a 30-bird flock, the State Veterinary Administration said on Friday.

The infection was at a farm 99 km (61 miles) south of the capital Prague and was likely caused by wild ducks from a nearby pond, the office said.
