    The number of high-risk cases exposed to AI has increased to more than 800 in Jeonbuk with the rapid spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI). The public health center is proactively administering antiviral drugs to them and monitoring symptoms such as fever for 10 days after exposure.

    According to the Disease Control Headquarters and Jeonbuk Province on the 20th, there are 811 farmers, 108 workers in the Jeonbuk area, 616 workers in the disposal work, 41 workers in the disposal work, Of the 811 patients, 269 completed monitoring for 10 days after incubation.

    Among them, in the Jeonbuk area, AI H5 antigen was detected in the farmhouse of Sosung-myeon, Jeongeup-gu, and the prosecution of 24,000 species was conducted. The farmhouse is located within 3 km of duck farm in Sosung-myeon, Jeongeup-si where the AI ​​occurred on December 12. Jeonbuk Province has decided to prosecute more than 23,000 native chicken farms within a kilometer of the farm.

    A suspicious AI report came in from the farmhouse in Gimje City on the same day.

    "Since high-risk people who have direct contact with AI poultry are likely to have sporadic human infections, we hope that they will wear personal protective equipment when they work and observe human infection prevention regulations such as seasonal influenza vaccination and antiviral drug use."
