Beware of bird flu

An outbreak of the avian influenza known as bird flu is reportedly spreading across multiple districts in neighbouring India. Fortunately, our ministry of fisheries and livestock directed the authorities concerned to take precautionary measures to prevent the spread of bird flu in the country. The ministry also directed them to conduct daily drives to detect it, taking maximum caution in the border districts and intensive supervision on public-private farms.

The authorities should follow up on the overall issue regularly. Should anything happen, we must remain alert so that we can respond to any crisis effectively. Public awareness, especially in the rural regions, is a must. As poultry is part of our everyday lives, we all must remain careful.
