Sri lanka prepares to combat bird flu
font size    

Sri Lanka's health authorities are to devise a simulation exercise based on a preparedness plan designed to combat bird flu disease which is not yet reported in Sri Lanka, a senior official in charge of animal production and health has said.

"We have already designed a preparedness plan making arrangements to conduct a simulation exercise of this plan in order to ascertain it's effectiveness," Director General of the Department of Animal Production and Health S.K.R. Amarasekera was quoted by Daily News as saying Monday.

He said that the plan would be implemented along with other key departments and players involved in combating the disease.

"Upon the results, the plan will be adjusted and improved to face any eventuality," he added.

This particular plan envisages taking swift measures to counter any outbreak of bird flu, who should be sent where, what action to take and the future steps.

While lamenting the poor laboratory conditions in Sri Lanka, Amarasekera said discussions are under way with international agencies and institutions to upgrade local laboratories.
