German authorities have confirmed a second case of the H5N8 strain of bird flu in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, with the virus found in a wild bird.
The strain is highly contagious among birds but has never been detected in humans.
In a statement agriculture minister Christian Schmidt said: "For the first time, the H5N8 virus has been confirmed in a wild bird in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
"With that the suspicion is strengthened that wild birds are connected with the cases in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as well as in the Netherlands and Britain."
