Newcastle disease has been found in dead birds in southern Chile, an Agriculture Ministry's veterinarian official said on Monday.

The government will strengthen surveillance of wild birds near the city of Constitucion and take measures to prevent domestic birds from being infected with the virus, the official said.

Last month, eight wild cormorants were found dead in the coastal area of Constitucion.

Newcastle disease is a highly contagious respiratory virus mainly carried by birds. The disease first broke out in 1926 in Indonesia's Java island and England's Newcastle.
