Abstract: The situation regarding avian H5N1 virus is only getting worse. Since the beginning of February 2006 affected wild birds - mainly swans - have been recorded, since the beginning of February 2006, in 14 European countries, without involvement of domestic poultry (Austria, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden & Switzerland). In France, a commercial turkey farm, adjacent to a site where infected swans were located, has also been found infected. Other countries like Albania, Azerbaijan, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Niger, Russia and Romania have poultry affected with the virus.
