China reports new bird flu case
font size    

China has discovered a new H5N1 bird flu case in poultry in the western Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) said on Wednesday.

The case was identified after domestic poultry at a farm in Xinjiang's Hetian County died of an unclear illness.

The dead poultry were confirmed to have been infected with the bird flu virus on Wednesday after testing at the national bird flu laboratory.

The MOA has sent expert teams to Hetian to control any possible outbreak.

An emergency mechanism has been launched and the local veterinary departments have set up examination stations to disinfect people and vehicles into and out of the affected area.
