font size    

Kuwait on Wednesday detected three new cases of the H5N1 strain of bird flu in birds, raising the total number of the cases to 57, the official KUNA news agency reported.

The three cases, including two turkeys and a chicken, were found in poultry farms in Wafra district of southern Kuwait, KUNA quoted the national committee for combating bird flu as saying.

The committee said bird flu cases spotted in Kuwait were still limited to poultry farms, stressing the importance of keeping birds caged to avoid their contact with migrating birds.

It added that results on human samples of those in contact with birds have all turned out negative.

In Kuwait, 354 samples from 313 people have been tested for the bird flu virus during the past three weeks.

The bird flu outbreak in Kuwait was first detected late last month.
