    Fresh cases of Bird flu in Kano, Lagos

    JANUARY 15, 2015 BY OKECHUKWU NNODIM

    The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development on Thursday announced that there has been unusual high mortality in two poultry farms and live bird markets in Kano and Lagos States.

    It said samples forwarded to the National Veterinary Research Institute tested positive for H5 strain of Avian Influenza Virus, otherwise known as bird flu, adding that confirmatory samples were sent to the International Reference Laboratory in Padova, Italy, for further characterisation.

    Avian influenza, known informally as Avian flu or bird flu, refers to influenza caused by viruses adapted to birds. Influenza, commonly known as ‘flu’ is an infectious disease caused by the influenza virus.

    The ministry, in a statement, noted that it had taken some measures in the affected sites to contain the reported outbreaks. According to the FMARD, it had quarantined the infected premises and placed restriction of movement of poultry and poultry products into and out of areas around infected premises.

          Nigeria: Kano Confirms Six Cases of Avian Influenza, Warns Against Contamination
          TweGoogl



          Kano — SIX fresh confirmed cases of deadly avian influenza virus were announced Fridaday by Kano State Ministry of Agriculture.

          Briefing Journalists commissioner for agriculture and natural resources in Kano, Alh. Nasir Yusuf Gawuna, posited that six cases of the bird flu were confirmed of the 10 reported cases in the state.

          Gawuna revealed that the virus were discovered in some commercial farmers in four local government areas including Kumbotso, Gwale, Tofa and Mingibir, insisting the identification of the farms would not be disclosed for security reason.

          The confirmation further authenticated Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development earlier detection of unusual high mortality of birds in two poultry farms and live bird markets in Kano.

          The federal government said samples forwarded to the National Veterinary Research Institute tested positive for H5 strain of Avian Influenza Virus, otherwise known as bird flu, adding that confirmatory samples were sent to the International Reference Laboratory in Padova, Italy, for further characterization.

          However, the commissioner stressed that affected locations are currently being depopulated while detoxification had commenced but was quick to warn owners of farms and markers to report suspected cases to the ministry for immediate action.

          " We have notice action on the suspected cases few weeks ago and we have seen commenced all necessary effort to curtail further spread. Already we have depopulated the locations for effective management. We earlier have 10 reported cases but 6 is currently confirmed at various locations in 4 local government areas". Alh. Gawuna revealed.

              He said Ogun, Delta, Rivers, Edo and Plateau states now have so far recorded cases of bird flu in addition to Kano and Lagos states, which was reported last week. “We can now confirm that the cases were due to the H5N1 virus.

                    By Ameh Comrade Godwin on January 27, 2015



                    The Ogun State government Monday confirmed the outbreak of Avian Influenza otherwise known as bird flu in the state.


                    The state commissioner for Agriculture, Mrs Ronke Sokefun made this disclosure while addressing newsmen in Abeoukuta, the Ogun State capital yesterday.

                    She said samples from Sango, Sagamu and Ifo live birds market tested positive to the highly pathogenic bird flu.

                    She said samples of birds taken from another poultry farm on Obalende-Ikangba Road in Odogbolu Local Government area of the state had tested positive to the disease.

                    Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, had on January 21 in newspaper reports, listed Ogun State as one of the seven states harbouring the bird flu virus.

                    She noted the discovery was made after a state-wide surveillance and live bird market decontamination exercise initiated along the border towns of Sango, Ifo, Akute, Sagamu, and Mowe-Ibafo axis, considering their nearness to Lagos.

                          There is bird flu in Ibadan, don warns poultry farmers, marketers


                          30.Jan.2015


                          OYO State has recorded cases of Avian Influenza in some farms and live poultry markets within the Ibadan metropolis, Dean, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Ibadan, Professor Gbenga Oyeyemi, has disclosed.

                          He disclosed this during a one-day seminar to create awareness among poultry farmers and other stakeholders in Oyo State, organised by the Federal College of Animal Health and Production Technology, Moor Plantation, Ibadan.

                          This also confirmed what the Minister of Agriculture, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, said on Wednesday that the viral disease had spread to 11 states in the country, including Oyo State.

                          The dean revealed that samples brought from Bodija and Agbowo markets, as well as some farms at Egbeda area of the metropolis tested positive to Avian Influenza, urging farmers to be on the alert and report suspected cases to the appropriate quarters to curtail the spread.

                          He warned farmers and marketers to desist from hoarding information about suspected cases to prevent transmission to humans and other farms.

                          However, chairman of the Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN), Oyo State chapter, said no case of bird flu had been reported in the state, adding that he and PAN were actively monitoring situations and farms in the state.

                              The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, has disclosed that the government would compensate the 39 poultry farms affected by avian influenza across the country with the sum of N145.145 million within 72 hours.

                              Adesina disclosed this at an emergency stakeholders’ meeting he held with state commissioners and stakeholders in agriculture last week in Abuja.

                              The Minister stated that over 100,100 birds have already been de-populated, hence, the role of the quarantine services has become very crucial. He said to reduce the losses on the part of the affected poultry farmers, government pegged the rate value of each bird at N1,450.

                              He also restated the need to establish laboratory diagnostic facilities in all the states of the federation, adding that mo*bile laboratories would also be needed. He tasked the private sector to consider setting up laboratories to support govern*ment’s efforts.
