    It is noted that all the interested services of Primorsky Krai have been notified of the outbreak, and in addition to this veterinary management of the territories adjacent to Primorye. Now appropriate measures are being taken to combat avian influenza.

    "Poultry gets infected from wild waterfowl, which usually has an asymptomatic illness, but for a long time it can carry a virus, or a bird that lives next to a person (pigeons, crows, sparrows and others)." The source of human infection is a sick bird, but transmission of the virus through animals, for example cats, is not excluded. In water, the virus can persist for up to a month, but at low temperatures and longer.

    One of the important reasons for preventive measures is the exclusion of contact between poultry and wildlife.

To decipher epizootic and scientific and methodological support of antiepizootic measures, the laboratory of virology of the FSC of Biodiversity, FEB RAS, was involved.

      It was found that the etiological agent of the epizootic outbreak was influenza A virus subtype H9N2, which is often found in populations of wild birds and has a low epidemic potential. For example, low-virus strains of influenza A (H9N2) virus are fairly regularly found among chickens and ducks in East Asia (prototype strains: A / chicken / Korea / 96006/1996 and A / duck / Hong Kong / Y439 / 97), including - on the Korean peninsula.

      Well-coordinated work and close interdepartmental interaction of regional institutions and federal supervisory services in an emergency situation allowed successfully localizing the epizootic process and preventing its scaling.

        Primorsky Krai: Poultry farm in Artem cited the reasons for the reduction in the number of chickens


        Poultry farm in Primorye, named the reasons for the reduction in the number of chickens

        06:42 11/29/2018(updated: 10:57 11/29/2018 )

        VLADIVOSTOK, Nov. 29 - RIA News. The poultry farm in Artyom, Primorsky Krai, where local residents report a massive release of dead birds, explains the need to reduce the population of the bird flu virus, brought by the supplier, and then - the lack of funds from the company and enough feed for chickens.

        In the local Instagram-channels published a video from the place of release of a dead bird. The frames show hundreds of carcasses lying on the road, and live broiler chickens walk along them. Public administrations, with reference to the authors of the video, report that it was filmed at the poultry farm in Artem. In the environmental prosecutor's office of Vladivostok, RIA Novosti reported that there is an inspection, an examination is being conducted on the presence or absence of diseases, the cause of death of a bird is established. It has been established that veterinary norms have been violated, and the idea of ​​eliminating violations of the law has been introduced.

        The official comments of TD Far East Bird LLC for RIA Novosti reported that the company belonged to Promsvyazbank before the end of 2017, and after December 2017, when the Central Bank introduced redevelopment to PJSC, the factory switched to self-sufficiency, having lost centralized support. In turn, the press service of Promsvyazbank noted that the company was only a borrower of the bank, did not belong to a credit institution. "The company" Far Eastern Bird "never belonged to Promsvyazbank. Previously, the poultry factory was only a borrower of the bank," the bank stressed.

        "In May 2018, N7 Hope bird was found on H7N9 avian influenza virus (harmless to humans). Nadezhda bird is the only supplier of hatching eggs for Far East Bird TD and its production speed are inseparably linked. To prevent a flu pandemic at the production sites, to bring the situation under control and to prevent the virus from entering the territory of TD Far Eastern Poultry, sanitary measures were taken to partially eliminate livestock, finished products and hatching eggs ", - OVOR in comments.

        According to the factory, losses amounted to about 300 million rubles. As a result of the elimination of livestock, production volumes decreased, which also reduced revenue in May-September 2018. This did not allow for the formation of a full-fledged fodder base for birds contained in fattening, the factory noted. In addition, they reported that due to heavy rains in the summer of 2018, in the fields of Primorye, 20,000 tons of wheat remained uncollected;

        "The lack of full-fledged feed has affected the condition of the bird - a significant plummet began in the fattening birds and a drop in the dynamics of weight gain in young chickens ... . The reduction of livestock was carried out according to the technical possibilities, and because of the need to carry out activities in a short time (to save at least some bird) were used decisive, frightening, but necessary methods ", - noted in the company.

        The factory reports that without these measures, the TD Far Eastern Bird, which employs 800 people, would have been forced to close. We are currently exploring the possibility of including the enterprise in the subsidy programs for 2019 and considering other options for regional support, the company noted.
