The outbreak occurred on July 14 in a community in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region's Aksu city, and the H5N1 virus was found in the samples of the dead poultry by the national bird flu laboratory, the Ministry of Agriculture said.

The H5N1 strain of avian flu had killed 3,045 chickens, and another 356,976 had been culled in an emergency response.
