Myanmar : Chickens Culled After Bird Flu Found in Sittwe

An article from Narinjara :

" Sittwe: Over 1,000 chickens have been culled in Sittwe Township in Arakan State after a tough strain of H5N1 virus was detected at a poultry farm, officials and a witness report.

The latest infection was detected on 12 January at a poultry farm in Bumay Village Tract in Sittwe, the capital of Arakan State, after all the chickens died unexpectedly.

A witness said, "Many chickens from around ten poultry farms in Tae Chaung Village were culled on Monday. The culling was conducted by the health department. I'd guess over 1,000 chickens were killed by the authority."
