" After an outbreak of avian flu in the area, the Pyinmana Township Peace and Development Committee (TPDC) has formed a resident-based anti-avian flu committee comprising six teams.
The committee, made up of the Veterinary and Animal Husbandry Department, the city development department, the police department, the fire department and the Red Cross, will work on the eradication and prevention of the disease, said committee officials.
‘We made field visits to villages near Naypyidaw and Pyinmana besides urban areas to inspect the poultry farms. We also set up checkpoints at the entry to the city to block the flow of poultry in and out of town’, a committee member told Mizzima."
