Suspected Avian Influenza Case Reported in Southern Korea Updated: 2012-03-12 00:00:00 KST

For the first time in nearly 10 months a suspected case of avian influenza has been reported at a poultry farm in Korea.
The government says that, out of the 450 chickens on the farm in South Chungcheong Province, 45 have died so far and 100 others are currently showing symptoms of A-I.
Officials say that, in a screening test, 6 out 10 chickens tested positive.
Comprehensive test results will be announced Tuesday if the case is confirmed as highly pathogenic, a nationwide 'standstill' order will be issued -- which means the transportation of poultry, personnel and vehicles related to livestock industry will be temporarily controlled to prevent the spread of the disease.
