VIROLOGY JOURNAL 14/03/17 Surveillance of avian influenza viruses in South Korea between 2012 and 2014. After the 2008 HPAI outbreak in South Korea, AIV surveillance systems were implemented to monitor the possible introduction of H5 or H7 HPAI.
Nationwide AIV surveillance has resulted in the isolation of many subtypes of AIV in LBMs, duck farms, and wild birds. In the present study, we investigated AIV prevalence and subtypes in each surveillance target according to conduction of the national surveillance system. The prevalence of AIV was 0.6% in the wild bird population and was consistent with the results of a previous surveillance study that demonstrated an overall prevalence of 0.8% in South Korea . It seems that lower prevalence of AIV isolation was caused by using virus isolation method, not real-time RT-PCR. The number of AIV isolates was found to be higher between winter and spring. AIV was isolated throughout the year in domestic poultry, with the exception of the month of August.
AFP 15/01/15 Corée du Sud: fièvre aphteuse et grippe aviaire. La Corée du Sud, confrontée à une épidémie de fièvre aphteuse et de grippe aviaire, a annoncé aujourd'hui le confinement temporaire des animaux de ferme pour éviter une réédition de la crise de 2011 qui avait entraîné l'abattage de millions de bêtes.
L'ordre de confinement des volailles et du bétail entrera en vigueur samedi à 06H00 (21H00 GMT) pour une période de 36 heures pendant laquelle les services vétérinaires procèderont à la désinfection des installations agricoles. Plusieurs foyers de fièvre aphteuse ont été recensés ces derniers mois et 25.000 porcs ont été abattus. La semaine dernière, une vache a été déclarée porteuse de l'épizootie, premier cas détecté chez un bovin depuis près de quatre ans. Début 2011, la maladie s'était répandue dans toute la péninsule coréenne et avait entraîné l'abattage de 3,5 millions de bêtes (bétails, porcs etc...) dans la seule Corée du Sud. Le coût avait été estimé à 2,6 milliards de dollars (2,2 milliard d'euros) par Séoul.

ARIRANG_CO_KR 14/03/14 Dog infected with Avian Influenza. Authorities have confirmed that a dog at a farm in Korea's Chungcheongnam-do province has been infected with the H5N8 strain of avian influenza.
Korea's agriculture ministry said Friday that the dog had tested positive for having antibodies against the H5 strain, meaning its immune system is battling the virus. It's the first time in Korea that a mammal has come down with the AI virus. Authorities say the dog became infected after eating an infected chicken at the farm. Prior to this case, it was believed that the AI virus could only be transmitted among the same species. "More studies need to be conducted on the possible affects of the H5N8 strain virus on mammals.
It's raising concerns that humans could be susceptible to the H5N8 strain, but health authorities say that's very unlikely, although the farm's workers are being tested.

Viruses, Vol. 5, 2013 Characterization of Clade 126.96.36.199 H5N1 Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Viruses Isolated from Wild Birds (Mandarin Duck and Eurasian Eagle Owl) in 2010 in Korea. Abstract: Starting in late November 2010, the H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus was isolated from many types of wild ducks and raptors and was subsequently isolated from poultry in Korea.
We assessed the genetic and pathogenic properties of the HPAI viruses isolated from a fecal sample from a mandarin duck and a dead Eurasian eagle owl, the most affected wild bird species during the 2010/2011 HPAI outbreak in Korea. These viruses have similar genetic backgrounds and exhibited the highest genetic similarity with recent Eurasian clade 188.8.131.52 HPAI viruses. In animal inoculation experiments, regardless of their originating hosts, the two Korean isolates produced highly pathogenic characteristics in chickens, ducks and mice without pre-adaptation. These results raise concerns about veterinary and public health. Surveillance of wild birds could provide a good early warning signal for possible HPAI infection in poultry as well as in humans.
