    Bird flu in Tehran and Isfahan!

    At 24am, the head of the Department of Health and Medical Education, the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, announced the naming of birds in a poultry farm in Tehran and six poultry houses in Isfahan.
    Mohammad Mehdi said: "The details of recent events in poultry in Tehran and poultry in Isfahan are the organization responsible for the organization of veterinary medicine, but I should point out that the Ministry of Health and the Center for the Management of Diseases of the Ministry of Health as soon as local pollution is detected and The notification will be immediately acted upon and we will be present at the site.
    He said: "By presence in the site of pollution, we will fully monitor the disinfection of the patient and will be vaccinated by all veterinarians in cooperation with the veterinary organization of the country."
    "Additionally, all of the full-day bosom will be treated with a prescription drug for ten days, and after all the staff has been given two weeks to check if the flu symptoms occur, and make sure that the disease is not caused by the birds," he said.
    He continued, pointing out that this regulatory process is always and regularly carried out. Initial reports are announced to the Ministry of Health in two ways through the local veterinarian and the preventive measures are taken through the local veterinarian.
    It was argued that, however, the most important case in this type of notification was at the time of the occurrence by owners of poultry farmers and farmers in the cases. Fortunately, throughout the last year, we did not even have a human case because of the information and timely information on the information. It should be noted that delaying the notification of the disease will make the
    prevention of work very difficult and may make the disease more comprehensive.
