Another 2.94 million fowls were culled, Jia Youling, chief veterinary officer and director of the the Veterinary Bureau of Ministry of Agriculture, told a press conference.

A total of 3,641 migratory birds in west China's Qinghai Province and Tibet Autonomous Region had died of the disease this year, he said.
