    With the rapid spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI), more than 1,900 poultry have been disposed of nationwide, and the foundations of duck farms in the Jeongeup area are on the brink of collapse. The Jeonbuk province's antipiracy authorities took emergency measures such as examining the closure of the Jeonju zoo when the AI ​​diffusion tax did not stop.

    According to Jeonbuk province on June 19, a suspected AI occurred in the duck farm of Soseong-myeon, Jeongup-eup, adjacent to Gochang-dong Lim Reservoir, and the 7,000 farmers who were raising their animals were on the way. In addition, it has decided to carry out prophylactic disposal of 8,000 cattle duck farms located 1.4km away from the evacuees.

    Five cases have occurred in Jeong-eup area including three suspected AI spikes on last weekend, and the close inspection is underway at the Agriculture, Forestry and Livestock Quarantine Headquarters, but the highly pathogenic H5N6 type is almost certain. Seventeen aliens were confirmed in the province by the day, and five were under scrutiny.

    So far, only about 649,000 farms in 45 provinces have been disposed of. Compared with 204 cases nationwide and 19,111,000 cases, it does not take up much weight, but it is characterized by intense occurrence in Jeongeup area.

    The H5N6 virus has been found in 39 farms in duck farms in Jeongeup and 295,000 in 17 farms, more than half of the 575,000 farms.

    In fact, more than half of the duck farms in the Jeongeup area have been devastated. AI is concentrated in the areas within Sangsung Sosung-myeon, Kobu-myeon, and Deokcheon-myeon, which are adjacent to the Gochang-dongrim reservoir, which is a representative migratory bird in the province.

    As a result of the investigation, the inspectors confirmed that there are more than 20,000 wintering birds in the Donglim Reservoir, and more than 50,000 birds are living in the Geum River area.During the daytime, these migratory birds are preying in the area around the outbreak area and in small rivers.

    In addition to strengthening anti-immigration and anti-virus activities centering around the migratory migratory birds, the government also sent banned poultry farming houses to 422 courier branches in the province. In addition, Jeonju Zoo, where 221 birds such as eagles, horned owls and white-tailed birds are being raised, will be strengthened by the installation of an interpersonal sterilizer.

    As the AI ​​spreads nationwide, the government has decided to supplement the additional tax of 500 million won in addition to the 700 million won already paid. The disaster relief fund will provide 300 million won to the 4 cities in the provinces including Kimje, Jeongeup, Gochang and Buan. .

    An official of the government said, "We are responding promptly to preventing the spread of AI and disposing of livestock in the public-private partnership system by injecting 26 public officials into preventive measures for the Iksan and Namwon areas. I want you to report it without any delay if there is a suspicion in the farmhouse. "
