In the winter 2005/2006 H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) reached Western Europe and caused numerous deaths primarily in migratory water birds. Between February and April 2006 34 cases of H5N1 HPAIV-infected dead water fowl were identified in Switzerland, almost exclusively occurring in the Lake Constance area, a large overwintering area for migratory birds in the eastern part of the country. In total, 13 of these virus isolates were genetically characterized in the present… CONTINUE READING
