Baku-APA. The Dutch government and poultry industry are relieved that a large outbreak of bird flu seems prevented in the country, but they remain vigilant, experts told Xinhua on Friday, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

In early December last year, the last bird flu infection was registered in droppings from wild ducks, but after that no new Dutch infections were reported.

"We have taken significant measures and we are happy a major outbreak failed to become reality," spokesman Simon den Haak of the Ministry of Economic Affairs told Xinhua. "Our measures seemed effective."
