New Delhi: While new cases of bird deaths have been reported in Uttar Pradesh and bird flu infection has been confirmed, the municipal corporations in Delhi have banned the sale of poultry products. The Delhi government has advised people not to panic and to cook eggs and chicken properly. According to a statement by the Union Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, there have also been cases of bird deaths from some districts of Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir. The ministry has asked state governments not to ban the supply of poultry products. According to the ministry, bird flu cases have so far been confirmed in Delhi, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
“Cases of unnatural death of birds have also come from Ganderbal in Jammu and Kashmir and four districts of Jharkhand,” the ministry said, adding that many states are banning the supply of poultry products from other states. In view of its negative impact on the poultry industry, the states have been requested to reconsider such a decision. In the national capital, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) and the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) prohibited the selling and keeping of poultry or processed ‘chicken’ in shops and restaurants.
Earlier on Monday, the Delhi government banned the sale of processed and packaged chicken brought from outside the city. The steps were taken after the bird flu was confirmed on Monday in samples of crows and ducks found dead in Delhi. The order issued by the Veterinary Services Department of the corporation stated that the owners of restaurants and hotels will have to face action if customers are served egg based dishes or poultry meat and other related products. In the past week, many ducks and a large number of crows have been found dead in the Sanjay Lake area of East Delhi in different parks of the city.
The Animal Husbandry Department of the Delhi Government received information on more than 50 dead birds on Tuesday. Delhi’s health department issued a consultation in the wake of bird flu cases in the city, urging people not to panic and follow guidelines including not eating undercooked chicken, half boiled or half fried eggs. “H5N8 is highly contagious for birds, but its effects in humans, as well as avian influenza (AH5N8) virus infection, are less likely,” the consultation issued by the Delhi’s Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) said.
The consultation stated, “Eat only fully cooked eggs and poultry products at 70 ° C for 30 minutes. Do not eat half-cooked chicken or half-boiled and half-fried eggs.” The consultation stated that do not keep raw meat near cooked meat. Wash hands thoroughly after touching raw poultry products. Take care of personal hygiene and maintain cleanliness in the surroundings. The administration has become alert after the death of some birds in Jalaun district of Uttar Pradesh. The surveillance has been intensified by the district administration after two out of four crows found dead in Kanpur had confirmed bird flu infection.
Five birds were found dead in Jalaun and their specimens were sent for examination while two peacock skeletons were found in Fatehpur. However, officials ruled out the possibility of the deaths of peacocks from bird flu. Jalaun Veterinary Officer Dr. Vipin Sachan said that according to the post mortem report, the birds died due to extreme cold. In the wake of bird flu, Thane District Magistrate Rajesh Narvekar in Maharashtra has asked the forest department to take special care in the marshland area for migratory birds in the district. He said in a review meeting with senior officials that seven teams have been deployed in the district to monitor the bird flu situation and a control room has been set up.
