    In addition, it is possible to carry out measures such as stopping and moving nationwide temporarily, prohibiting gathering of farmers (farmers related to poultry) nationwide. However, the precautionary stage has already taken these preventive measures in accordance with the serious stage.
    In order to strengthen the effectiveness of the sanitary measures, the relevant ministries will strengthen the on-site inspection and guidance, and will continue to support the central government.
    As a serious stage upgrade, poultry farmers are strengthening disinfection forecasts and thoroughly protecting farms such as out-of-home vehicles.
    The related workers should minimize access to the farm, and if it is inevitably visited, they should thoroughly protect themselves from the farm entrance and exit by wearing disposable protective clothing and disinfection.

    The Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Livestock and Livestock Food and Beverages, the head of the AI ​​Center for Accidents and Crimes, urged the public to cooperate in order to prevent the spread of AI.
    Since disinfection and mobility control are inevitable measures to prevent the spread of AI, I especially emphasized that I would refrain from visiting poultry farms and accessing major migratory birds, even if it was somewhat inconvenient.
    Since all of the poultry on the farms are being disposed of or disposed of, it is safe to eat chicken, duck, and eggs that are on the market. Poultry meat is safe because it is cooked only because it is cooked and it is contaminated with AI virus.
    Finally, the government said it will be the first to implement the upgrade to a serious stage, and that it will respond to the situation so that it can be an opportunity to quickly end AI.
