Epidemiological comments
An avian influenza intensive surveillance system is in place for all poultry farms, poultry markets, and pet bird shops in Hong Kong. The H5N8 infected animal was detected in the ongoing national surveillance program on wild birds. Neither the Hong Kong Wetland Park nor Mai Po Nature Reserve nor any poultry farms are located within three kilometres of the outbreak location. No spread of disease was evident. The date of end of the outbreak is the same as the date the bird was found (28 Jan 2021).
