            Bird flu in Gojo, Nara Prefecture

            Chickens were found dead one after another at a poultry farm in Gojo City, Nara Prefecture, and the avian influenza virus was detected.
            Nara Prefecture has decided to dispose of about 80,000 chickens in this poultry farm.

            According to Nara Prefecture and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, on the morning of the 5th, a poultry farm in Gojo City contacted the prefecture's Livestock Hygiene Service Center saying "30 chickens are dead."
            When 13 birds, including 2 dead birds in Nara prefecture, were subjected to PCR tests, "H5 type" avian influenza virus was detected.
            It seems to be a highly pathogenic virus with a high case fatality rate, so the country will investigate further.
            In response to this, Nara Prefecture set up a countermeasures headquarters and decided to dispose of about 83,000 chickens at this poultry farm.
