A swan has been discovered with bird flu antibodies near the Ukrainian border, Romanian agriculture minister said Tuesday.
Gheorghe Flutur said that the bird from the village of CA Rosetti, in the Danube Delta some 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Ukraine, had tested positive at a laboratory in Bucharest.
Flutur also said several swans and a wild duck had also been discovered with antibodies in the villages of Ceamurlia de Jos and Maliuc, two localities where the bird flu has already been detected.
Officials confirmed Saturday that the deadly H5N1 bird flu strain had been detected in Ceamurlia de Jos.
