Japan : Bird-flu steps complete: Shimane

Via The Japan Times :

" MATSUE, Shimane Pref. : The Shimane Prefectural Government announced Sunday that it has taken all preventive measures against bird flu since a local poultry farm was found infected last week.

All 21,500 chickens at the farm in Yasugi have been killed and incinerated, and all precautionary steps — including the disinfection of the farm and its vicinity — have been carried out, the prefectural government said.

Although no new cases of avian flu have been reported, surveillance will be maintained within a 10-km radius of the infected farm, Shimane officials said."
