            Bird flu spreads in Bihar?s Munger, government orders culling of birds
            So far, 200 birds have died, including seven peacocks at Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park, referred to as Patna zoo, which has been closed to public since December 25.

            Avian influenza, also referred to as bird flu, has spread to one more block of Bihar?s Munger district, forcing authorities to order culling of over 15,000 poultry birds there on Friday.

            The H5N1 avian influenza in the state has so far claimed the lives of 200 birds, including seven peacocks and a khalij pheasant at the Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park, referred to as Patna zoo, which has been closed to public since December 25.

            Unconfirmed reports, however, put the death toll of birds in the state at over 1,000 since the outbreak of the disease in Munger on December 3. The animal husbandry department (AHD), however, refuted reports of all avian deaths to bird flu.

            ?We have been able to successfully contain the disease, which is restricted to the Patna zoo and two blocks of Munger,? said state epidemiologist Dr Ragini Mishra...

              Death of 650 chickens sets off bird flu scare in Bihar

              Authorities have culled 2000 poultry birds in Munger District to prevent bird flu epidemic. Deaths of peacocks were recorded in Patn zoo on Christmas Day. National Institute of High Security Animal Diseases (NIHSAD) has confirmed that the deaths were due to H5N1 bird flu.

              Deaths of 650 chickens at a poultry farm in Patna district has started a bird flu scare in Bihar. The chickens died from what is known as H5N1 virus this week.
              H5N1 is a virulent form of H1N1 virus.

              The authorities have culled more than 2000 poultry birds in Bihar's Munger District to prevent an epidemic. Culling in Munger District is being followed up by a mop-up and disinfection drive. There hasn't been any official announcement to ban poultry products so far. Experts say that a 90-day ban on poultry products is necessary in such areas to prevent fresh infections.
              The virus usually spreads after contact with an infected bird or bird faeces.
              Reports of dying chickens and other birds from different parts of the state have added to the panic.
