H5N1 Outbreak Confirmed in South Korea

From the glorious and democratic People's Daily:

"The South Korean government confirmed Saturday that an outbreak of bird flu in Iksan, 230 km south of Seoul, was caused by a highly virulent strain of H5N1 virus. Tests conducted by the National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service showed that the outbreak has been caused by the H5N1 virus, said Lee Yang-ho, spokesman for the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry announced Thursday that suspected bird flu cases were found at a poultry farm in Iksan city, Jeollabukdo, where 6,000 out of a total of 13,000 chickens had died suddenly since Sunday.

According to the ministry, all of the chickens and other animals on the farm have been culled and buried, while a tight quarantine has been established around the affected area. All eggs produced in the poultry farm have were destroyed and the transportation of all chickens, birds and eggs within 10 km of the farm had been banned."


Next questions: Is it contained, and is it the Fujian-type (that China continues to deny exists)?

Hopefully these answers will come in due time. Also notice how all of the animals on the farm were culled, suggestion a pan-zoonotic outbreak. And why did they bury the animals when incineration is the standard post-cull procedure?
