Machine translated article from Noe.Orf :

After the previous week on the Schwechat Airport 60 birds were discovered in travel bags, there are now additional assay results from five of the smuggled from Bali animals were infected with the bird flu virus.

The investigation of the 60 confiscated birds is still in progress, so the tests are not yet complete. So far, the H5N1 virus could be clearly detected in five animals. The birds were discovered on Thursday passed on the Schwechat Airport in the baggage of a Czech couple.

The animals were to be smuggled from Bali to the Czech Republic, the animals were crammed into cardboard tube. It was mainly parrots and birds of paradise. 39 animals were already dead. The surviving birds had to be killed after an animal, the bird flu virus was detected."
