    DH News Service, Bengaluru, Jan 2 2018, 23:55 IST

    Bengaluru has been affected by bird flu, it has been confirmed after an H5N1 virus was found in a bunch of chicken from a shop in Thanisandra, Northeast Bengaluru.

    The Health Department has declared areas within the one-kilometre radius of Dasarahalli an infected zone and places inside the 10-kilometre radius surveillance zone.

    Tausif, who runs KGN meat shop in Thanisandra, bought a bunch of chicken from Tamil Nadu on December 28. When four or five of them died, he immediately took the rest to the veterinary hospital in Hebbal. After checking the fowls, the samples were sent to Bhopal's NIHSAD laboratory, where it was confirmed on December 31 that the birds have H5N1 (avian influenza).

    The Health Department, which received the report on the diagnosis on Tuesday, has assured that things are under control and there is no need to panic.
