A case of bird flu has been confirmed at a chicken farm in the Netherlands, the second infection identified in the country this week.

The latest case was at a farm in the village of Ter Aar, in South Holland province, 15 miles from a farm where thousands of chickens were slaughtered this week following a bird flu infection.

Tests are being conducted to establish the exact strain of bird flu in the Ter Aar case. The earlier case and another this week at a duck farm in England were confirmed as H5N8, which British officials said posed a very low public health risk.

All 43,000 chickens at the farm in Ter Aar are being slaughtered and the government has banned the transport of poultry and eggs nationwide.
