South Korea reported suspected cases of highly pathogenic bird flu at a local egg farm Saturday.
The suspected cases of avian influenza were discovered at a farm in Cheonan, 92 kilometers south of Seoul, according to the government's response headquarters.
Tests for bird flu are currently under way, and the results will be announced in up to three days, the headquarters said.
Highly pathogenic avian influenza is very contagious among birds and can cause severe illness and even death, especially among domesticated poultry. (Yonhap)
