    Deshmukh reviews bird flu situation
    TNN | Jan 28, 2012, 01.04AM IST

    GONDIA: In view of the increasing number of deaths of crows in Gondia district, guardian minister Anil Deshmukh reviewed the situation of bird flu epidemic in the district, particularly in Tiroda and Sadak Arjuni tehsils during his visit to Gondia on Thursday.

    There were reports of increasing number of deaths of crows in these two tehsils in the last fortnight. So Deshmukh called for a meeting of the officers of heath and veterinary department. He then asked the officers to see that the situation does not deteriorate by ensuring that the birds are scientifically disposed off so that the disease does not spread.

    The district health officer Dr BK Meshram said that a sufficient stock of tamiflu medicine and masks will be ensured in the district. Officials attending the meeting included the collector and CEO of zilla parishad Dr Yeswant Gedam, additional collector Kamlesh Sonale, RDC NKP Rao, SDO Anant Walaskar, deputy commissioner of animal husbandry Dr Uttam Narnawre, civil surgeon Dr Milind Sonwane, medical officer Dr CR Tembhurne, district epidemics officer Dr Pravin Padwe, medical officer of Sadak Arjuni tehsil Dr Suwarna Hubekar and medical officer of Tiroda tehsil Dr Madhav Kotangale.

    Below is a video of sick crows in Gondia on Dec 22 2011. Compare to symptoms of Newcastle disease from wikipedia (bolding mine);

    "Symptoms

    Signs of infection with NDV vary greatly depending on factors such as the strain of virus and the health, age and species of the host.
    The incubation period for the disease ranges from two to 15 days. An infected bird may exhibit the following signs:
    They can include respiratory signs (gasping, coughing), nervous signs (depression, inappetence, muscular tremors, drooping wings, twisting of head and neck, circling, complete paralysis), swelling of the tissues around the eyes and neck, greenish, watery diarrhea, misshapen, rough- or thin-shelled eggs and reduced egg production.
    In acute cases, the death is very sudden, and, in the beginning of the outbreak, the remaining birds do not seem to be sick. In flocks with good immunity, however, the signs (respiratory and digestive) are mild and progressive, and are followed after seven days by nervous symptoms, especially twisted heads."

        For comparison; a sick crow from Jharkhand. H5N1 was confirmed in some crows. It's possible that others were suffering from West Nile disease;

            Shiloh

            71 birds die Gondia: After Tiroda and Amgaon, bird flu epidemic seems to have spread to other tehsils of Gondia district. About 71 chicken were found dead in Padampur village in the last 48 hours. However, neither the animal husbandry nor the health department seem to have taken cognisance. Villagers claim that veterinary doctors are snubbing them for reporting these deaths saying that it could spread scare in the region.
