From now on the hunt of wild bird is prohibited in the territory of Armenia. The RA Government has taken the step to avoid the spread of the bird flu.
The UN Food and Agricultural Organization has already included Armenia into the risk zone and is going to allot Armenia the necessary diagnostic equipment for finding out the illness.
According to the Agriculture Minister David Loqyan, different measures are taken in Armenia to prevent the arrival of the illness in Armenia. For example, in the border passages all the cars are disinfected, the import of bird meat has been restricted, and the Health Ministry takes measures to get the vaccination of the illness.
Today a consultation took place at the President’s residence about the matter.
