Visitors from Tivoli, Rosnik, and Eisenhower HriblandScape Park were warned via a social network that a swan had died in the Kozaki Budger, which was found to be infected with the H5N8 subtype, which is not dangerous to humans.
Visitors to Landscape Park are requested not to feed the birds, especially in the Koseki Budger. During feeding, the birds congregate, which increases the risk of disease transmission.
Avian influenza is a highly contagious virus that can be transmitted to domestic poultry by pedestrians, dogs and cats if they come in contact with feathers or bird droppings.
It is recommended that people do not live in areas contaminated with wild bird droppings and that their hands, clothing and shoes should be disinfected to prevent the virus from infecting poultry or other birds. .
Ten days ago, the first case of bird flu death was reported in Slovenia when a swan died in a piranha. Soon after, the death of the infected swan was also confirmed in Isola.
