    Gir Somnath district officials on Saturday confirmed the region’s first case of bird flu in poultry birds. After the report, 220 poultry birds were culled in one day while restriction orders were issued in the entire district regarding consumption and sell of eggs and chickens. More than a dozen poultry birds were found dead in Dolasa village of Kodinar taluka a few days ago.

    The carcasses were sent to Bhopal for forensic testing and the report on Friday night confirmed avian influenza. A team of animal husbandry department surveyed the area and culling orders were given to four poultry farms within one kilometre radius from the affected farm.

    In a statement, the Gir Somnath district administration said that the entire area has been disinfected and a 10km radius area has been declared as the surveillance zone for next 60 days. The district collector, through a notification, also prohibited buying and selling of chicken and eggs.

    The 10km radius area has been declared a prohibited area banning all types of poultry related farming activities while people have been advised to wear masks, gloves and gumboots and avoid travelling to the area unless in emergency. Strict action will be taken against the violators, it stated.

    Junagadh district’s Manavadar taluka first tested positive of avain flu following the death of many birds including migratory birds. However, this time poultry birds tested positive too. Bird flu cases have so far been reported in five districts including Gir Somnath, Junagadh, Valsad, Surat and Vadodara.
