The deadly bird flu virus was suspected on Wednesday to have spread to the Jordan Valley moshav of Beka'ot. Initial tissue samples tests returned results that appeared to be positive, but Dr. Shimon Pokamunski, expert of avian diseases at the Agriculture Ministry revealed the results were inconclusive. As the Beka'ot flocks experienced low mortality, the moshav was not quarantined. Additional tests were to be conducted, Israel Radio reported.
