Another dead swan near Lecce in Puglia is suspected of having the H5N1 virus although this has still to be confirmed. An emergency meeting is set for Sunday morning 12 February at the ministry of health, but the transport of all livestock susceptible to the virus has already been stopped. The swans are thought to have migrated to southern Italy from Russia.
