In South Korea, H5N6 developments in poultry prompted a move to the highest avian flu alert level.
Current viruses fall into 2 geographically separate clades.
In addition, Korea, Zimbabwe, and Luxembourg note H5N8, and Libya confirms H7.
H5N8 has now been confirmed in 40 countries, and South Korean scientists shared genetic findings from a recent H5N6 isolate.
Also, an analysis of H5N2 from a wild Alaskan duck adds more evidence that North American wild birds still harbor the virus.
China, Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Finland and South Korea also reported new outbreaks.
Meanwhile, many countries across Europe and Asia continue to battle outbreaks of several strains.
