    Posted on Fri, 19/05/2017 - 13:03 | Modified on Fri, 19/05/2017 - 13:18

    In an address to the press Thursday (May 18th) in Bunia, the governor of Ituri, Abdalah Pene Mbaka, declared the epidemic of avian flu in the localities of Joo and Kafé on the shores of Lake Albert. The disease has already killed more than five thousand chickens and ducks.

    Experts note its progression towards the localities of Kasenyi, Nyamavi, Kapuru, Mandje, Mokambo and Mahagi - port, along Lake Albert.

    According to the Head of Livestock Production and Animal Health Department in Ituri, Dr. André Lobo, cases of deaths of chickens and ducks at this stage in three territories of Ituri: Djugu, Irumu and Mahagi.

    To prevent the spread of the disease, the provincial governor announces the suspension of commercialization of poultry:

    "The movement of poultry of all kinds in these localities is strictly forbidden. And the markets there are closed to the poultry trade. Poultry within a radius of 3 kilometers around these localities must be systematically destroyed within the framework of sanitary cleansing ".

    The Head of Production and Animal Health reported that other surveillance measures were already in place, notably at the central market in Bunia, which naturally supplies poultry in these different localities. It therefore calls for the non-handling of infected poultry or found dead, to avoid contamination.

    An unknown disease decimates ducks and chickens in Djugu

    Posted on Sun, 07/05/2017 - 21:53 | Modified on Sun, 07/05/2017 - 21:53

    About three hundred and fifty head of poultry, including ducks and chickens, died within a week of a disease not otherwise identified in the localities of Joo and Kafé on the shores of Lake Albert in the territory of Djugu. The information was delivered on Sunday (May 7th) in Bunia by the head of animal production and animal health division in Ituri, fearing "adverse consequences in family economies" in the area.

    The head of Livestock Production and Animal Health Division in Ituri, Dr. André Lobho, reports that, on the basis of reports from local breeders, ducks die in large numbers, while these palmiped birds often resist diseases Chickens or roosters.

    This is what worries Dr. André Lobho. He confirms the presence at Joo and Kafé of the agents of this division dispatched for appropriate investigations:

    "We needed an animal health expert to give us the exact symptoms. He will take pictures to edify us more. I recommended to him, if there are bodies of waterfowl, that they take pictures of us. "
    According to Dr. André Lobho, the loss of these birds constitutes an "economic catastrophe" for the breeders of the region who "are interested in ducks. And when ducks die massively like that, it's a hard blow, because these are the resources with which they are living. [The schooling of] children, medical care ... it goes in. "

    The Livestock and Animal Health Division in Ituri has banned the consumption of poultry meat, which is dying from a disease not otherwise identified in these localities.
