    First case of bird flu reported at Shtime, a quarantined farm

    The first case of avian influenza "Avian Influenza" was presented in a non-commercial farm in Shtime. The Food and Veterinary Agency has issued a decision on general measures for the control, prevention and fight against the disease.

    According to the decision, “the area located approximately 3 km from the farm in the village of Godancë, municipality of Shtime, is declared a quarantine zone for the prohibition of the movement of poultry. While the 10 km perimeter is declared an area under surveillance for research,” announced the AUV.

    In the meantime, executive measures have been taken to prevent the spread.

    “The destruction of chickens and other poultry in the farm concerned, the disinfection of the farm and the spaces around the farm have been carried out. The farm is a family economy (barnyard chickens). We are in contact with veterinary practices, the association of poultry breeders. It was ordered to put in place biosecurity self-defense measures on farms,” the statement said.

    There are currently no other suspected cases.

    "The case is isolated, only one farm is concerned. The disease is present in most EU countries and the region. In agreement with the authorities of other countries, the AUV establishes measures to prevent the spread according to international professional practices. There is no ban on poultry products,” announced the AUV.

    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
