    Reporter Kim Jeong-ho (newss@hanmail.net) Enter 2022.11.20 16:44 Comments 0

    According to Jeju Island on the 20th, an additional highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1 type) was detected in the feces of wild birds along the coast of Siheung-ri, Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si.

    Jeju Island imposed movement restrictions on 630,000 Yeosu of 12 poultry farms in the surveillance area in accordance with the Avian Influenza Emergency Action Guidelines (AI SOP).

    Farmers within the quarantine zone will be lifted from movement restrictions if negative results are confirmed through clinical surveillance and detailed inspections from December 4, 21 days after the date of fecal collection.

    However, for farmhouses that require movement, such as shipment, movement is possible if it is confirmed negative through a preliminary test.

    Earlier on the 8th, highly pathogenic avian influenza was detected in the Sangdae Reservoir in Hallim-eup, Jeju-si. As a result of clinical observation and detailed examination results of 28 poultry farms in the quarantine station, all were confirmed negative....

    In the fall of this year, for the third time in Gyeongsangnam-do, highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI, H5N1 type) was finally confirmed in the carcasses of wild birds found in Haebancheon, Gimhae. Accordingly, in order to prevent the inflow into nearby poultry farms, emergency quarantine measures and bans from entering Haebancheon were taken.

    South Gyeongsang Province announced on the 20th that highly pathogenic AI was confirmed in the carcass of a swan and a male duck found in Haebancheon, Gimhae-si on the 14th. This is the third case of detection in wild birds since it was confirmed on the 19th of last month in the catch of wild birds in Sachoncheon, Gimhae, and in the feces of wild birds in Bonggok Reservoir, Changwon on the 27th.

    In addition, South Gyeongsang Province detected AI antigen (H5 type) in wild bird feces collected from Hapcheon Stream on the 15th, Upo Wetland in Changnyeong on the 17th, and Haebancheon Stream in Gimhae on the 18th. Is in progress.

    Gyeongsangnam-do immediately deployed an AI antigen (H5 type) to Upo Wetland in Hapcheoncheon, including Haebancheon in Gimhae, where highly pathogenic AI was confirmed, and banned people and vehicles from entering within a 500m radius of the center of the antigen detection site. Along with this, spreaders and information boards were installed on the access road to restrict the entry of livestock vehicles and related workers, and disinfection vehicles were mobilized to strengthen disinfection of the roads around the detection site and the entrance to the poultry farm...

        Jeonbuk Province announced on November 27 that as a result of a detailed inspection of wild birds (red-headed ducks) captured in the middle of the Mangyeong River in Jeonju, H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza was detected on November 30.

        This is the first time in 10 months that highly pathogenic avian influenza has been detected in wild birds in the province since January 27 (Gunsan Okgu Reservoir, H5N1).


        Jeonbuk Province raised the crisis level from 'caution' to 'serious' and implemented strengthened quarantine measures in areas where antigens were detected and poultry farms.

        A control post is installed and operated in the detection area to control access to people and vehicles within a 500m radius, and movement restrictions, detailed inspections, and strengthened disinfection measures for farms (No. 44) within the quarantine zone (10km) are also implemented for 21 days. It is carried out.​

            Avian influenza (AI) confirmed in Changwon... Gyeongnam Province, hyper-focused on preventing the spread
            Yeongnam Reporting Headquarters Reporter Se-ryeong Lee Entered 2023.12.11 11:24

            Highly pathogenic avian influenza (avian influenza; AI) was detected in wild birds captured in Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do, and Gyeongnam Province entered a super-strong quarantine system.

            According to South Gyeongsang Province, as a result of testing 12 wild mallard ducks captured in Jinjincheon, Masanhappo-gu, Changwon-si on the 6th, it was confirmed that 2 were infected with H5N6-type avian influenza on the 10th.

            This is the first time this winter that a confirmed case has been reported in Gyeongnam since the confirmation of subsea birds caught in the Mangyeong River in Jeollabuk-do on November 28.

            Gyeongnam Province deployed an initial quarantine team to block the entry and exit of people and vehicles within a 500m radius of the outbreak area.

            Banners and information boards were installed on the access roads to restrict the entry of livestock vehicles and related workers, and disinfection trucks were mobilized to strengthen disinfection of roads around the detection site and access roads to adjacent poultry farms.

            A 10km radius from the sample collection point was designated as a wild bird bird surveillance area, and movement restrictions were placed on all poultry farms within the quarantine zone.

            We again emphasized quarantine measures such as installing and repairing nets to block access to wild birds, and conducted emergency surveillance and inspection to confirm that there were no clinical symptoms related to avian influenza.

            Previously, since mid-September, livestock vehicle access control zones have been in operation at 12 high-risk migratory bird habitats, and an administrative order has been issued banning free-range breeding in poultry farms from the 1st of this month.

            Kang Gwang-sik, head of the animal quarantine department, said, “It is a serious situation in which highly pathogenic avian influenza is being confirmed one after another in Korea.” He added, “The outside of the barn is considered to be a contaminated area, and measures are taken to disinfect the inside and outside of the barn, control entry of external vehicles and people, prohibit the release of poultry, and prevent access to wild birds. “Please implement it thoroughly,” he said.

            “Check poultry farms every day for suspicious livestock, and if you see any suspicious symptoms, quickly report them to the quarantine authorities,” he advised.​

                  ‘Highly pathogenic AI’ detected in a dead falcon at Ulsan Grand Park

                  Reporter name Reporter Jeong Hye-yoon Approved 2024.02.13 00:10

                  Wild falcon rescued and transferred from Gyeongju
                  Wildlife Disease Control Center detects
                  'H5N1' type AI virus
                  . Rose garden and zoo remain closed.

                  Highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI) was eventually detected in a wild falcon that suddenly died recently in Ulsan Grand Park (Page 6 of our February 7 issue). Ulsan health authorities are on alert.

                  According to the AI ​​Situation Room of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs on the 12th, a wild falcon was rescued near a children's park in Gyeongju on the 4th, and was transferred to the Ulsan Wildlife Rescue and Management Center after confirming a negative reaction in a simple avian influenza kit test. However, the falcon rescued on the morning of the 5th suddenly died, and a positive reaction was detected in a simple kit re-test, so the center requested a detailed examination.

                  In response to this, AI Situation Center explained, “Highly pathogenic influenza was detected in wild birds in Gyeongju, Gyeongbuk, which was conducted after the Ulsan Wildlife Rescue and Management Center requested the Gwangju National Wildlife Disease Control Center.”

                  This wild bird is believed to have been discovered in a river running through downtown Gyeongju, and the 'H5N1' type AI virus was detected. The Ulsan Wildlife Rescue and Management Center, where the wild falcon was transferred, and the adjacent Ulsan Grand Park Rose Garden and Zoo have been temporarily closed since the 6th. To prevent the introduction and spread of infectious diseases, we plan to continue temporary closure until the AI ​​lulls.

                  Meanwhile, as winter birds migrate north from January to February every year, highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses have been detected in wild birds, mainly in some southern regions such as Jeju and Gyeongnam.

                  Currently, the entire country, including the Ulsan region, is maintaining the 'severe' level of avian influenza, and as of the 10th, 31 cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza have been detected nationwide, including 31 cases in poultry and 19 cases in wild birds.
