Burmese Officials Say Bird Flu Under Control


Burmese livestock officials say bird flu has been brought under control in their country and restrictions placed on affected areas could be lifted by the end of the month.

Burma's Livestock Breeding and Veterinary department has issued a statement saying no bird flu virus has been discovered in recent weeks.

Outbreaks of the H5N1 bird flu were originally reported March 13th in the central Mandalay and Sagaing regions.

Officials placed tight restrictions on the movement of animals and closed markets in the region.

Thousands of chickens, quails and their eggs were culled in the region. Disease investigations were also carried out by U.N. experts from the Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Health Organization.
