    CAMEROON, AVIAN INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC: TWO NEW OUTBREAKS DISCOVERIES IN FOUMBOT :: CAMEROON

    Awa Fonka Augustine, governor of West Cameroon, signed a decree last Friday, banning the sale and circulation of poultry in the markets of the Nun Department.

    This measure was taken as part of the fight against the H5n1 flu, which according to the results observed by the national veterinary laboratory annexed to Yaoundé on 13 March last persists in the poultry farms of Messrs. Meli Jean and Charles Tsagué. Foumbot.
    ...
    As a reminder, the western region of Cameroon has covered, for nearly 8 months, outbreaks of avian influenza that could corrupt the entire chain if the measures taken are not respected

    Avian influenza re-emerges in West Cameroon, the country's largest production basin

    Tuesday, 21 March 2017 02:53
    (Invest in Cameroon)

    25,000 head. This is the number of chickens slaughtered since March 13 in poultry farms in the town of Foumbot, located in the department of Noun, western region of Cameroon, local sources say. These slaughter operations, it is said, follow the discovery of the H5N1 avian influenza virus on dead chickens on the farms of Messrs Charles Tsagué and Jean Meli, two local poultry farmers.

    Following the disclosure of the results of the tests carried out on these chicken carcasses by the veterinary laboratory attached to Yaoundé, the governor of the western region, Awa Fonka Augustin, signed on 17 March 2017 a decree prohibiting Commerce and movement of poultry in the Nun Department. Disinfection of farms is also under way.

    The western region, Cameroon's first chicken production basin, is experiencing its third avian influenza epizootic in less than a year. To the chagrin of the poultry farmers, who had already announced losses of about CFAF 16 billion, after the outbreak of the May 2016 epizootic in the capital of the country, before spreading to several parts of the country. Cameroon, including that of the West.

      Avian Flu. Avian influenza: why resistance

      Eric Vincent FOMO | Cameroon-tribune | Posted: Thursday March 30, 2017 08:02:47 |

      The epizootic continues to decimate the herds, despite the battery of biosecurity measures taken by the government

      Nearly 5,000 chickens slaughtered and incinerated. This is the record recorded in two poultry farms in Foumbot, department of Noun, a few days ago. While everyone believed it was losing momentum, avian flu has made a comeback in the western region. The results of analyzes carried out by the national veterinary laboratory annexed to Yaounde on certain dead animals confirmed the presence of the avian influenza virus (avian flu) in the poultry farms of Jean Meli and Charles Tsague in Foumbot. This situation led Governor Augustine Awa Fonka to issue a decree prohibiting the sale of poultry in all the markets of this department. As was already the case for the Koung-Khi and Mifi departments in the western region, not to mention the other towns in the country where the movement of poultry, livestock equipment, products and by- Products is also prohibited.

      The Order of the Governor of the West also prescribes the systematic slaughter, incineration of all suspected or infected birds within a radius of 3 km and burial of carcasses, mandatory disinfection of all poultry and Sites identified within a radius of 3 km and observance of a crawl space until further notice was also advocated. Long before the resurgence of avian influenza in the Western Region, a highly pathogenic A (H5N8) influenza outbreak was detected in epidemiological surveillance in birds in the Far North region on 02 January 2017. This was a result of the significant mortality of blue-winged peacocks (Pavo cristatus) in an exotic poultry farm in the district of Tokombéré, Mayo-Sava, near the border with Nigeria. On 15 February 2017, the Minister of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries notified the World Organization for Animal Health of this outbreak of avian influenza.

      Today, almost a year after the onset of the disease, it is clear that the avian flu continues to plague. Although epidemiological surveillance exists and biosecurity measures have been prescribed, avian influenza continues to destroy farms and leaves farmers to be appalled. In September 2016, the Poultry Interprofession of Cameroon (Ipavic) estimated the losses caused by the epizootic at around 16 billion FF at the national level. More than half of these losses would have been recorded in the Western Region, which accounts for nearly 80% of the national poultry production (with a herd of about four million people and an egg production of around 1 billion).
