Hen Farm Quarantined After Bird Flu Suspicion

The NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) has quarantined a hen farm in New South Wales. The farm has been closed, as it is being suspected that it might be infected with bird flu.

Authorities concerned said it shall be noted that the flu that is being expected at the farm house is not the same that affects human lives.

As said nothing has been finalized about the presence of the avail flu and things will get confirmed on Thursday. It is not the first time when such an incident has taken place in the country. There have been cases, but in a small number and eradication process was also a success.

A public awareness message has been passed on to people. They have been asked that if they find any dead animal or bird then they should contact them or they can also contact any local veterinarian. It shall be noted no risk on the consumption of eggs and poultry has been found.
