Water Basin “Possible Source” of Bird Flu in Bulgaria

A water basin located close to the southern village of Slanchogled where bird flu was first detected in Bulgaria may be the source of the virus, Agriculture Minister Nihat Kabil said Monday.

There is no way that live fowl could have been imported in Bulgaria from Turkey, Kabil stressed before bTV channel. He said that wild birds gathered at the water basin in question and they might have brought the avian flu to the country.

The minister also added that people should realize the gravity of the situation and not hide any of their birds, but turn them in if they suspect that they might be infected with the virus.
