    Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province to dispose of 39,000 farms near the confirmed infected AI

    2016. 12. 19. 11:57

    69,000 poultry farms with a radius of 10 km in the farm
    Jeollanam-do Province,
    A case of bird flu in the eastern region of South Jeolla Province has occurred and an emergency has occurred to the authorities.

    The H5 strain of AI virus was confirmed on June 19 when a sample of the 600 ducks were reported to have been killed by a Korean duck farm in Yongbang-myeon, Guryem-gyeon, Korea.

    This is the 8th in Jeonnam this year and the 4th in the region.

    Prosecutors have dismantled all 7,200 ducks in the farm, and decided to dispose of 39,000 poultry that were still being raised at four farms within a 500-meter radius.

    At present, there are 264,000 poultry in 50 farms outside the 500-meter radius, 204,000 farms in 9 farms and 47 farms within 10 km.

    In the province, only seven cases of AI, including four cases of Naju, one case of unsanction and one case of long wallet, occurred in just one month since the first confirmation of AI in Haenam on the 16th of last month.

    Six of the cases were H5N6-type, and the H5 virus was detected on a duck farm in Nampyeong-eup in Naju City on June 16.

    The provincial authorities are investigating epidemiologic studies on the possibility of horizontal hepatitis among the farms, although the existing AI-producing farms concentrated in the western region, but in the eastern region and in the vicinity of the Gurye District, there are no migratory birds.

    In Chonnam, which failed to prevent the spread of early AI, 360,000 chickens and ducks have been disposed of to date.

    Yeosu and Gwangyang provinces, which have not been infected with AI virus yet, are not slowing down.

    In particular, Yeosu City urgently supplies 300 lime to Yulchon, Sora and Hyeongyang, where 650,000 birds are kept in close contact with each other. In addition to strengthening cooperative control activities by cooperating with livestock farmers, .

    Government confirmation:
    2016-12-19 10:00:00
    The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Livestock Food and Drug Administration has confirmed that H5N8 type highly pathogenic AI was detected on 12.18 days after thoroughly examining fecal samples from wild birds collected in Anseongcheon, Gyeonggi Province.
    The virus is of the same type as the H5N8 virus that occurred in Korea in 2014/15, but it will be confirmed through future gene analysis whether the virus was detected in the remnant of the virus or whether it was newly introduced with the arrival of this winter migratory bird.
    The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Livestock and Livestock Food and Drug Administration announced on 12.19th that it will hold an investigation committee on poultry abatement (poultry committee) to discuss additional preventive measures

    It is the worst AI ever ... Two types of AI occur simultaneously

    A H5N6 strain of the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (AI) and other forms of the virus have been detected in wild birds of Anseong, Gyeonggi Province. This is the first time that two types of AI have occurred at the same time in Korea.

    The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Livestock and Livestock Food and Drug Administration has confirmed that the H5N8 strain of AI virus was detected in the samples of the wild bird feces in Anseongcheon, Gyeonggi Province. The researchers collected samples from researchers at Chungbuk National University on November 13 for research purposes, and the researchers submitted samples to the Agriculture, Forestry and Livestock Quarantine Headquarters on April 17 as it was estimated to be H5N8 type AI.

    The AI ​​virus is different from the H5N6 virus, which is currently in danger from the whole country except Jeju Island.When final confirmation is made, H5N8 type and H5N8 type will occur at the same time.

    In case of H5N8, it is the type that occurred in 2014 after the worst damage after AI incident this time. The H5N6 type AI is spreading at a faster pace than the current authorities' strong measures.

    On Oct. 17, the number of reported cases increased to 86 at the time of 0 o'clock on the 18th, as additional complaints were filed at Gyeonggi-do Seoul National University Park and Jeonnam Guryem. Of these, 65 have been confirmed, and the remaining 21 cases are likely to be confirmed as highly pathogenic.

    In addition to the number of reported cases, the number of AI-producing farms reaches 188, including the number of confirmed farms after the precautionary slaughter process. The number of highly pathogenic AI outbreaks of wild birds has also increased to 25. The number of slaughtered males reached 313 farm households, 14.69 million. There will be an additional 3,686,000 slaughtering, which means that over 18 million poultry will be slaughtered.

    The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry decided to set a 10km radius from the site where the H5N8 strain was detected, and to investigate the route of the virus by opening a livestock council. In particular, it plans to investigate the possibility that the H5N8, which occurred in the past, might have been discovered in Korea after it was hidden in Korea. Apart from this, it decided to ban the live chicken distribution again through consultation with the National Chicken Association, the local government, and the quarantine headquarters.

    In the past, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food prohibited the circulation of native chickens, but considering that 30% of the native chickens are traditionally marketed and most of them are small-scale farm households, I have accepted it. Unfortunately, as soon as the measures were taken, a consensus was reached that the AI ​​broke out at the native chicken farm in Busan, and more powerful measures were needed to end the AI.

    In addition, at the 'serious' stage of the current AI crisis warning, the government could buy excess supply, so the farmers' difficulties due to prohibition of distribution could be solved to some extent, the Nutrition Department said.

    The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries will release additional measures against the disease on September 19.

    Different type of AI discovered

    2016/12/18 16:44

    SEOUL, Dec. 18 (Yonhap) -- A different type of avian influenza (AI) has been discovered in the country, the government said Sunday, as it intensifies efforts to contain its spread.
    The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said a new H5N8 strain of the bird flu was detected at a chicken farm located in Anseong, some 77 km south of Seoul, earlier this week.
    It marks the first time that two strains of AI have broken out in the country simultaneously.
    The first outbreak of the H5N6 strain that has spread throughout the country was reported at a chicken farm in Haenam, about 420 kilometers south of Seoul, on Nov. 16.
    The ministry said the H5N6 strain is more pathogenic than the H5N8 type that was previously detected in 2014.
    However, experts said that it would be more difficult to contain the disease if quarantine authorities have to cope with two strains at the same time, particularly in the cold winter months when decontamination efforts are not very effective.
    On Saturday, another case of AI was found in Gwacheon, just south of Seoul, despite quarantine officials' best efforts to check the virus' movement that has ravaged poultry farms across the country.
    A total of 86 cases have been reported as of Friday, officials said.
    South Korea quarantine officials culled more than 14.67 million poultry and plan to destroy an additional 3.38 million chickens and ducks in coming days.

    'Another AI appearance' 2014 type disposal of 19 million ... Authorities 'tension'

    2016-12-18 18:46:56

    In the afternoon of the afternoon of the afternoon of the 16th of the afternoon, a group of poultry farmers are preparing to dispose of the virus at a farm in Utsanri, Nampyeong-eup, Naju, South Jeolla Province, where a highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (AI) 2016.12.16 / News 1 ? News1

    "2014" bird flu has been reopened since 1900 million chickens and ducks were foreclosed. This is a completely different H5N8 genotype from the H5N6 strain found this year.

    The 2014 type is difficult to prevent because it is found after being incubated between farms for a long latency period. This is the first case where two AI viruses are infecting a poultry farm at the same time.

    The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Livestock and Livestock Food and Drug Administration announced on March 18 that Chungbuk National University research team confirmed the H5N8 strain of AI virus in the middle of a sample of wild bird feces sampled at Anseongcheon.

    The H5N8 type AI virus is less pathogenic than the H5N6 strain that is currently spreading in the west coast, but symptoms are delayed due to the long latency period. Therefore, it takes time to discover, and the risk of secondary infection is high.

    AI prevention is the initial goal of stopping at the first infection stage from wild birds to farmers. This is because when the farms are infected, they can spread out without control.

    Despite the unparalleled virulence of AI this year, the disease is preventing the spread of the disease in Yeongnam, because the symptoms quickly became apparent, and it was possible to dispose of it before the second infection.

    The H5N8 strain found in wild birds has not yet been found to be infectious. However, considering the long latency period, it is not possible to exclude the possibility that it has already spread to poultry farms. If farm infections are discovered, this is the first case of two types of viruses being infected simultaneously.

    The H5N8 AI in 2014 and 2015 had already been infected by farmers in the early stages of development. At the poultry farm, after the chickens or ducks that they had raised died, they were notified. At that time, the virus was already infected,

    The H5N8 virus has occurred in 669 days from January 2014 to November last year. At that time, the number of poultry burials reached 19.37 million. It has occurred for 13 days from March to April this year.

    "If the H5N8 strain of AI virus is confirmed, it will be more difficult to prevent it," Song Chang-sun, professor of veterinary medicine at Konkuk University, said, "The virus will be vulnerable to pathogenicity, .

  • South Korea - H5N8 avian flu strain was detected in a sample of the wild bird feces, Anseongcheon in Gyeonggi Province - December 18, 2016

    AI 'Serious' alarm also spoils ... Cumulative death toll of 20 million

    Gyeonggi Ansungcheon H5N8 type detection, two virus outbreak emergency

    (AIRLINES) - A bird flu outbreak has risen to the "serious" stage on June 15, and the anti-virus measures have been tightened, but AI suspicious reports that poultry has died are rarely shedding.

    The H5N8 strain was detected in a sample of the wild bird feces of Anseongcheon in Gyeonggi Province. It is a virus that differs from the H5N6 virus that has spread since last month.

    Whether the H5N8 virus is highly pathogenic has not been confirmed, but if two types of viruses are spread together, it is likely that the virus will have great difficulty in preventing it.

    According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Livestock and Livestock Foods, the H5N6 type of highly pathogenic AI virus that spreads from Jeonnam and Chungbuk on the 16th of last month has been spreading all over the country, and 8 cities and provinces including Gyeonggi, Gangwon, Chungnam, Chungbuk, Jeonnam, Jeonbuk, Busan, AI was confirmed in the army.

    As of the morning of the 18th, there were 14,697,000 poultry in 313 farms. The total number of deaths is estimated to be 1,806,800.

    As the number of suspicious reports continues, the number of preventive deaths will increase and the number of poultry in Korea will increase.

    The site of Kimpo City, which remained in AI clean area, was also opened.

    The Agriculture, Forestry and Livestock Quarantine Headquarters reported to Kimpo City that a high-pathogenic AI infection was confirmed as a result of a test on a chicken farm in a poultry farmhouse in Daegothyeon.

    The farmer reported four AI chickens died on the 10th, and one AI was suspected of sleeping.

    Kimpo City, including the two farmhouses within a radius of 500m around this place, was disposed of to prevent 180 birds, but at this time, they expected a negative judgment. However, when a highly pathogenic AI confirmation is issued, it is devastating.

    In addition to the existing two stations, Kimpo City also has 8 subway stations installed in major roads, and is being disinfected for all vehicles. It also went into tactical activity for the whole farm house raising poultry.

    Park Yong-jun, the director of the anti-virus team, said, "Gimpo has been exposed to AI viruses because there are many migratory birds."

    The H5 strain of AI virus was detected in a duck breeding farm in Yongbang-myeon, Gyeonggi-do, South Jeolla Province. The farm reported that 600 ducks died the day before.

    Although it is not yet known whether the disease is highly pathogenic, the animal husbandry authorities are nervous because Yongbang-myeon is a representative duck farm in Gurye-gun. There are no migratory birds here.

    South Jeolla Province is investigating the dynamics of nearby poultry farms after it began disposal of 7,200 chickens on the farm.

    The government has decided to treat 39,000 poultry farms with a radius of 500m, and plans to extend the scope of preventive flesh disposal to 3km.

    Nine farms are raising 204,000 poultry in the 500m to 3km area.

    Busan Gyeonggi-gun, where a farmhouse in the ward was diagnosed with H5N6 type AI infection, disposed of 694 chickens and ducks in 7 farms within a 3-km radius around the farm.

    In addition to the existing six mobile control stations, five additional locations were installed and staffed.

    "We will continue to concentrate our entire administration on the end of the term," said Gyu-seok, an officer of the National Intelligence Service.

    ◇ Up until 2014, the popular virus ... Detection of two viruses simultaneously 'First time'

    The H5N8 strain of AI virus was detected in the wild bird feces collected in Anseongcheon, Gyeonggi Province, Gyeonggi Province, and the animal husbandry and abatement authorities are straining.

    It is a different virus from the H5N6 virus that spreads nationwide.

    The H5N8 virus is an AI type that has swept Korea from January 2014 to March this year. This is the first time that two or more viruses have been detected at the same time in Korea.

    The virus killed 13,161,000 poultry in 548 farms from January to July 2014, and from September to June last year, there were 231 farms, 5.11 million, and from September to November last year, In January and April this year, 12,000 poultry farms of five farms were disposed of.
