    AFP DISPATCHES

    AVIAN INFLUENZA IN NIGER: OVER 180,000 POULTRY DESTROYED IN ONE MONTH

    MARCH 15, 2021 AT 3:31 PM BY AFP

    More than 180,000 poultry have been destroyed in Niger where cases of bird flu have been reported since February, authorities suspecting contagion from neighboring Nigeria, a veterinary source told AFP on Monday.

    "We already have four outbreaks in Niamey where we have detected two types (of the virus) of avian influenza including H5N1 which is the most highly pathogenic", told AFP Dr Halima Adamou Harouna, the regional director of the breeding of Niamey. Four outbreaks have been declared since February 17 in Niamey, confirmed the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). "For H5N1, everything must be destroyed quickly and 181,350 poultry have already been destroyed", explained Dr Harouna. "We suspect (that) the origin of the virus (lies in) imports from infested Nigeria for almost a year," she said. To avoid a large-scale spread, the Nigerien authorities plan to "ban the import and export of avian products" from Nigeria, which shares 1,500 kilometers of borders with Niger, she added. The capital Niamey is generally supplied with avian products by the giant Nigerian farms. "We tried to block" these exchanges of avian products with Nigeria "and each time they (the traders) find a passage," regretted Dr. Harouna. "This new crisis that is falling on us is a second case of extremely serious disaster," worries Guy Van Kesteren, director of the AviNiger farm, the largest in Niamey and one of the most severely affected by the disease. In August 2020, some 32,000 laying hens had perished on the same farm due to severe flooding that affected the capital. "If there is no consistent state aid, I think we will have to drastically reduce staff or stop activities," warns Guy Van Kesteren. In 2006, Niger was the second West African country, after Nigeria, where the H5N1 virus was discovered, in Zinder and Maradi (two border regions of Nigeria), causing the death of millions of poultry. Niamey then banned the importation of avian products from Nigeria for two years. But the government had granted compensation to poultry farmers in the affected areas thanks to an "emergency plan" of 13 billion FCFA (nearly 20 million euros).

        Since February 2021, several outbreaks of H5N1 avian influenza have been discovered in Niamey, the capital of Niger. Affected farms suffer significant economic losses as the government tries to halt the spread of the zoonosis through a series of measures. Details in this item from Studio Kalangou.
