Burma Says It Is Bird Flu Free


Burma has declared itself free of bird flu after a three-month program to detect and control the potentially deadly virus.

The state-controlled New Light of Myanmar newspaper says Tuesday the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries declared Burma was rid of the disease on Sunday.

The newspaper says the ministry's Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department has sent the news to the World Health Organization and the World Organization for Animal Health.

Burmese authorities worked with foreign experts to control bird flu after the first outbreak was reported in March. No new outbreaks have been reported since April. Officials placed tight restrictions on the movement of animals and closed markets in the region.

Thousands of chickens, quail and their eggs also were culled.

Burma's veterinary department has said farms affected by the disease and the subsequent culling program would receive new stocks of birds and poultry feed. The H5N1 strain of bird flu has killed about 140 people worldwide, most of them in Asia.
