South Africa reports outbreak of H5N8 bird flu

South Africa reported an outbreak of a highly pathogenic H5N8 bird flu at a farm in the Free State province, an agricultural industry body group, Agric SA, said on Friday.

South Africa earlier this month suspended all trade in birds and chicken products from neighboring Zimbabwe after it reported an outbreak of H5N8 at a commercial poultry farm.
