Bangladesh takes emergency program to prevent avian influenza
font size    

Bangladeshi government has taken up an emergency program to prevent spreading of avian influenza, widely known as bird flu virus, in Bangladesh, private news agency UNB reported Monday.

The emergency program involves 4.27 billion taka (about 61 million U.S. dollars), said Fisheries and Livestock Secretary Quamrul Hasan while opening a daylong training program for livestock officers here Monday.

The opening ceremony was informed that the government has taken up inter-ministerial programs to implement the national strategy to resist the avian influenza.

Meanwhile, the government has already banned import of poultry birds, chicks and poultry products from 56 countries affected by the avian virus.

The World Bank is also actively considering another 2 billion taka (about 28.6 million U.S. dollars) assistance proposal made by Bangladeshi government to check the outbreak of the deadly virus.
