An additional 37,000 cases of avian flu have been identified in Kfar Vitkin, a moshav near Netanya, the Agriculture Ministry said on Monday. The birds were all turkeys at the Beit Herut coop, were being culled and buried to prevent the spread of the disease, the ministry said. 

Other cases have occurred and undergone treatment throughout the Sharon and Haifa regions, as well as in the Palestinian Authority, over the past few weeks. Some of the impacted areas have included farms in Moshav Halevy, Kibbutz Magal, Binyamina-Givat Ada and Aviel, as well as near Jenin and Kalkilya in the PA.
