The authority said on its website that the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) has certified Hungary’s status as a bird flu-free country.

Chief veterinary officer Lajos Bognar has notified the authorities of Hungary’s partner countries that Hungary was declared bird flu-free on July 27, paving the way for import restrictions to be lifted, Nebih said.

The chief veterinary officer has withdrawn the order for poultry to be kept indoors, but preventive measures such as indoor feeding remain in affect across the country, the authority said.
