H5N1 hits poultry in Bangladesh, Nepal

"In what officials in Bangladesh are describing as the worst poultry H5N1 avian influenza outbreak in 5 years, animal health workers are culling 150,000 birds at a large poultry farm near the country's capital, Dhaka, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported today. The outbreak was detected on Dec 24 after farm workers noted dozens of dead chickens. Authorities said the outbreak is Bangladesh's 23rd this year, according to the report. A rash of outbreaks in 2007 led to the culling of more than 1 million birds.

Elsewhere, an H5N1 outbreak at a commercial poultry farm in Nepal prompted the culling of 2,500 chicks and the destruction of 19,000 eggs, the Himalayan Times reported yesterday. The farm is located in a suburb of Kathmandu, the capital, and represents the first outbreak in that area in 3 years, according to a report yesterday from Xinhua, China's state news agency.

Dec 26 AFP story
Bangladesh slaughters 150,000 birds over avian flu (Wednesday December 26, 2012)


DHAKA: Bangladesh's livestock authorities are slaughtering around 150,000 chickens at a giant poultry farm near Dhaka after the worst outbreak of avian flu in five years, officials said Wednesday.

The deadly H5N1 strain of flu was detected at Bay Agro farm at Gazipur, 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of Dhaka, on Monday after dozens of chickens died, prompting the company to send samples to a laboratory for tests.

"There are about 150,000 chickens at the farm. We have already killed and destroyed 120,000 chickens and we will kill the rest today," livestock department director Mosaddeq Hossain told AFP, adding it was the worst bird flu outbreak in five years.

Bangladesh was hit by bird flu in February 2007, when over one million birds were slaughtered on thousands of farms. Since then the flu has entrenched in the country, seriously ravaging one of the world's largest poultry industries.

The last major outbreak was in March 2010 when at least 117,000 chickens and 200,000 eggs were destroyed at a farm in northern Bangladesh.

The latest outbreak is the 23rd to be recorded this year. Even before the new mass slaughter, a total of 107,252 chickens had been destroyed in 22 farms, said Ataur Rahman, a livestock control room official.

The country has also reported six confirmed human cases of bird flu since May 2008, but the government's health department said all have recovered. -AFP

Bird flu reported in Kathmandu for first time in 3 years

Bird flu was reported in Nepali capital Kathmandu for the first time in three years, since the disease appeared in Nepal in 2009, officials said Tuesday.

Manjushree Poultry Farm, a hatchery in suburb Ramkot-6 has been identified as a bird-flu affected farm, Kantipur daily reported, quoting the Ministry of Agriculture officials as saying.

A team of the Ministry is preparing to visit the site Tuesday afternoon to inspect and take measures to prevent the spread of the aviation influenza.

Bird flu has already been reported in the suburbs of Bhaktapur and Lalitpur districts which are in the same mountainous valley where Kathmandu, too, is located.

"Bird flu is more dangerous to people who work in the poultry farm than to those who consume chicken," said Dr. G. D. Thakur, Director with the Epidemiology and Disease Control Unit under the Ministry of Health.

Nepal shares a porous border with India and it is believed that bird flu has been transmitted to the country through India via Kakarvitta border in the eastern plains.Bird flu was first reported in Saranamati of Jhapa district that is adjacent to West Bengal and Bihar states of India.
