                    Su Wenetsu

                    Izumi City, Kagoshima Prefecture, announced on the 15th that highly pathogenic "H5" bird flu was confirmed on the farm of hens (chickens that lay eggs) in the city. This is the third case of bird flu in Japan this season and the second in the prefecture.

                    From around 11:30 am on the same day, Izumi City began disposing of 11,000 hens raised by the farm based on the epidemic prevention guidelines. Furthermore, the area within 3 km centered on the outbreak farm was designated as a restricted movement area, and the area within 3 to 10 km was defined as a restricted export area, and 6 disinfection points were set up near the area.

                    Prior to this, an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza was confirmed at the egg-laying chicken farm in Izumi City. According to Kagoshima Prefecture, the inspection was conducted on the 12th after receiving a report from a farm in the city that multiple chickens had died. An analysis by the National Institute of Animal Health on the 13th revealed that it was "H5N1 type" with a high mortality rate. At the farm, about 38,000 birds have been disposed of by 11:00 am on the 14th, and the poultry house is being disinfected.

                    ..

                    On the 10th of this month, a highly pathogenic avian influenza "H5N8 type" virus was confirmed at an egg-laying chicken farm in Akita Prefecture, and about 143,000 birds were disposed of. The same type has caused the largest spread of infection in the country.

                    According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, humans are unlikely to be infected with the bird flu virus by eating chicken or chicken eggs. The Consumer Affairs Agency says, "Please do not be confused by unfounded rumors and respond calmly based on accurate information."
