Mexico Reports H7N3 HPAI on Small Farms


According to a report to the World Organization for Animal Health, Mexico identified cases of H7N3 HPAI on egg production farms in each of the states of Queretaro and Guanajuato. Outbreaks involved an egg production farm and a flock of fighting cocks.

HPAI can be regarded as endemic in many states in Mexico but is suppressed by administration of inactivated vaccines.

The avian influenza situation is continuously monitored by SENASICA, equivalent to USDA APHIS.
