By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Sunday, Mexican authorities confirmed that they have detected the severe H5N1 strain of avian influenza at a 60,000-bird commercial farm in Nuevo Leon state on the border with the United States, Reuters report.

The discovery comes only a week after Mexico detected the first case of bird flu.

Agricultural officials say that the disease was detected after a producer raised concerns.

Mexican officials say that a quarantine has been declared and an unspecified number of birds will be euthanized to control the outbreak.

Another case of bird flu was also discovered in another family-run chicken farm in Chiapas.
