Bird flu outbreak in Tboung Khmum


Recommended Posts

Following an outbreak of bird flu in Tboung Khmum province last week, provincial and ministry officials are warning villagers to be cautious and aware that the virus could be transmitted to humans. Heng Piseth, provincial agriculture department director, said yesterday that on August 22, 40 infected chickens were found with H5N1, commonly known as bird flu.


Mr Piseth said the outbreak prompted authorities to burn 70 chickens and their cages, along with spraying antiseptic in the house where the outbreak occurred. Chicken waste and other materials used to feed the chickens were also destroyed, he added.


“Our officials will continue to monitor and spray antiseptic two to three times a day,” Mr Piseth said. “In addition, we will follow up for another month and call experts to continuously check back to prevent the case from happening in the area again.” Provincial health department director Keo Vannak said yesterday that the outbreak was contained without spreading the infection to humans.
