  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HU2023-0007
Although Hungary regained its avian influenza free status on July 28, 2023, the disease has returned. In November 2023, animal health authorities confirmed primary outbreaks of the H5N1 strain of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in four counties. The epidemic is sweeping across Eastern Hungary. Control and quarantine measures are in place, but further cases are expected around the affected localities and in the neighboring counties as they are along stopover spots of migratory birds.
