Adjust font size:

A new outbreak of bird flu has killed about 1,000 domestic poultry in a village in the country's northwestern Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, the Ministry of Agriculture said in Beijing Wednesday.

A national laboratory test confirmed on Tuesday that the dead birds had the H5N1 strain of bird flue virus in the Henan New Village in the regional capital of Yinchuan.

After the outbreak, 72,930 domestic poultry were slaughtered to prevent the spread of the virus, according to the ministry's information office.

Currently the outbreak has been effectively controlled, according to the Ministry.

This is the second case of bird flue outbreak for the week, following another found in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Sept. 27, which killed 985 chickens.
