Hong Kong heightens surveillance of chicken farms to combat bird flu

 

 

Hong Kong's veterinary authorities have reported that there have been no outbreaks of low pathogenic H7N9 avian influenza.

 

According to follow-up report no. four sent to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) on 28 April, legal movement of animals has been identified as the main cause of the bird flu outbreaks.

 

Surveillance and monitoring of local chicken farms have been stepped up, OIE said.

 

No H7 viruses were detected since the date of start of the event (27 January 2014). The situation has been resolved.
