Mexico bans import of birds from the US due to bird flu outbreak – El Sol de Hidalgo

The state has closed borders to live birds, meat and offal or offal from poultry and eggs from Indiana in the United States, due to an outbreak of highly contagious bird flu found on a turkey farm in that state.

The US Department of Agriculture’s National Health, Safety, and Quality Service for Agrifood (Sinasica) reports that US health authorities have confirmed the outbreak.

Sinasica reported that the restriction had already been communicated to all agricultural health inspection offices, which are located at all entry points into the country.

In addition to the United States, countries such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Serbia have reported outbreaks of the virus, which is often transmitted by wild migratory birds to domestic animals.

In Spain, authorities slaughtered more than 130,000 chickens after detecting an outbreak of bird flu on an intensive farm in the region of Castilla and León, in the north of the country.

Greenpeace today released footage of a loader collecting chicken carcasses by the thousands and dumping them in an open-top truck to be transported to an off-farm incineration site.

The Spanish authorities have imposed a 10-kilometre isolation zone, although they maintain that humans are at little risk from these diseases.
