RIA Novosti: UPDATE: Quarantine imposed on all poultry farms in Russia

02/ 08/ 2005


The bird flu was discovered in 14 settlements in five districts of the Novosibirsk region, in a village of the Altai Territory (southern Siberia), and in a village of the Tyumen region (West Siberia).

Information is being verified in other regions where bird deaths have been reported.

The incineration of diseased birds and of birds that may have come in contact with them in a number of villages suspected of bird flu outbreaks allowed the virus to be localized.

The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision is doing everything possible to control and eliminate the areas of infection and is taking sanitary measures, including instructing the population on rules of sanitation for poultry. Experts have been assigned to the Novosibirsk and Tyumen regions and the Altai Territory to assist in conducting epidemic countermeasures.

ITAR-TASS: Ministry fears bird flu may spread to European Russia

The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations expressed concern on Wednesday that bird flu could spread to European Russia during the autumn migration of migrating wild birds.

The ministry does not rule out that humans can also be infected, particularly staffers of poultry farms. With that in view, emergencies ministry departments as well as other concerned agencies and executive bodies in the Russian regions have been instructed to develop anti-epidemic measures, including to monitor the circulation of flu virus in birds migrating across Russia.

According to the Ministry for Emergency Situations, 4,035 wild and domestic birds have died of bird flu in the Novosibirsk, Omsk, Altai and Tyumen regions.
