Food safety authority Nébih has lifted all restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of bird flu in Hungary, the authority said on Tuesday.
The last two counties under restrictions, Bács-Kiskun and Csongrád-Csanád, in southern Hungary, have not reported cases in poultry since April, Nébih said. As a result, transportation of poultry from Hungary to domestic and EU destinations is now uninterrupted, the statement said. Some third country restrictions will have to be lifted by the World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH), the statement noted. Nébih warned farmers to continue to adhere to regulations to prevent bringing the virus to the country again.
