LETHBRIDGE, AB. — It’s a critical illness that may kill poultry and probably unfold to individuals working carefully with poultry, making them sick.
Avian influenza (AI), also referred to as Chook Flu, is being monitored by the Canadian Meals Inspection Company (CFIA), for outbreaks across the world. Proper now, AI is widespread in Europe, Asia and the Center East.
Canada shouldn’t be resistant to outbreaks of chook flu in poultry populations. A number of outbreaks, together with as not too long ago as 2015, brought about important harm to poultry homeowners in a number of provinces.
Ontario and British Columbia (BC) have each issued reminders to the poultry trade to be vigilant for AI, and the province of BC has raised its alert system to “yellow”.
