Via Arirang News: Migratory bird droppings collected in Busan test positive for bird flu.
Now to the latest on Korea's first bird flu outbreak in three years.
The virus, which was initially detected in the country's southwestern Jeolla-do region, may be spreading to the southeast.
On Thursday, migratory bird dropping collected from Eulsukdo in Busan tested positive for avian influenza.
Officials are currently checking if they have the same highly pathogenic H5N8 strain as the one found in Jeolla-do.
Carcasses of several different species of birds were found across the southeastern Gyeongsang-do area on the same day as well.
Authorities have sent the dead birds for further testing.
So far, more than 4-hundred-thousand ducks and chickens have either been culled or are in the process of being destroyed since the first case was confirmed last Friday.
If birds migrating from Siberia are turning up sick or dead in the southernmost parts of the peninsula, what's happening in North Korea? Or Siberia itself, for that matter?
