The Agriculture Ministry announces that two more avian flu outbreaks have been detected in the north.

A ministry statement says the flu cases were detected in turkey and chicken coops at Moshav Dvora and Givat Yoav, which together house some 48,000 birds.

Agricultural Minister Oded Forer calls for boosting “biological safety” at bird coops “so there won’t be another developing and continued event like this next year.”
