Maharashtra reports 800 Chickens Dead To Confirm Bird Flu

Mumbai/ New Delhi: Maharashtra is the 8th state to confirm bird flu despite national efforts to curb the spread.

“Parbhani is the epicenter. About 800 poultry birds – all hens – died in the last two days. Their samples were given for testing. And now it is confirmed that the reason is bird flu,” told NDTV, District Collector Deepak Madhukar Muglikar. Parbhani has located about 500 km from Bombay’s capital Maharashtra.

“It has been confirmed in Murumba village. There are about eight poultry farms and 8,000 birds. We have given orders of culling those poultry birds,” he added.

Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is going to hold a meeting tonight to review the condition of bird flu.

Other states that have reported Avian Influenza include Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, and Gujarat.

Last week, the government clarified that the disease is “zoonotic” but human infection has not been confirmed by the government in India.

India announced the first Avian influenza outbreak in 2006. For hundreds of years, bird flu viruses have been around the world, with four documented major outbreaks reported in the last century.
