A new suspected case of bird flu was found at a duck farm in South Korea, the South Korean Agriculture Ministry said Saturday.
Routine tests showed that some ducks at a farm in Yesan, 134 km south of Seoul, have been infected with avian influenza, the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry said detailed tests were underway to confirm whether the suspected outbreak of bird flu is a highly virulent strain of avian influenza.
All ducks at the farm were culled in case of further spreading of the fatal disease, the ministry said.
