Bird Flu

A total of 10,500 poultry birds were culled in Chhattisgarh’s Balod district on Saturday following the confirmation of bird flu.

Chhattisgarh is the 11th state where avian influenza has been confirmed.

As a part of preventative action, the department eliminated 10,500 poultry birds in Gidhali, said K.K. Dhruv, Additional Director, Directorate of Veterinary Sciences.

To a query about cases of bird flu reported in other districts, he said by Saturday his department had not received reports of any further spread of the avian influenza. But if samples confirmed the infection, further action will be taken, Dhruv said.

Meanwhile, after the bird flu was confirmed, movement of poultry birds in the contaminated zone was banned at Gidhali and steps to curb human movement in the contaminated zone were implemented.

A 10-km range in Gidhali was notified as an area under observation, Dhruv said.
