Bird flu in Nepal: SSB issues high alert

The Sashastra Seema Bal has directed people in the border area here not to bring poultry from Nepal in the wake of the outbreak of bird flu in that country. SSB has asked people not to bring poultry from Nepal, officials said. “Though there has been no case of bird flu in the region so far, directives have been received from the authority to take all necessary precautions…

The locals have also been asked not to hunt migratory birds,” district veterinary officer Mohammed Ahmed said. The Nepal government last week had issued high alert against bird flu after receiving confirmed reports of the avian influenza in dozens of chickens in Manahara river area of Bhakatapur district in the eastern part of Kathmandu valley.

After some 90 birds died over the period of 2-3 days in a poultry farm in Manahara, the government had conducted tests on the birds which confirmed presence of bird flu. Some 500 birds were killed and dozens of eggs were destroyed after the incident.
