                    Avian Influenza Detected in Poultry Coops at Moshav Aviel

                    • Publish Date
                    About 107,000 infected birds were located at the farmThe Ministry of Agriculture isolated the farm and is continuing to actively monitor poultry in the area

                    The Minister of Agriculture, Oded Forer, stated: “The current wave of Avian Influenza (bird flu) incidents has been with us for about three weeks. All this time, Ministry staff continue to work day and night to eradicate the spread of the virus and continue to maintain our health and the health of the animals around us, while minimizing animal suffering”

                    The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has located a poultry farm at Moshav Aviel, in the Alona District Council, containing poultry infected with bird flu. About 107,000 turkeys raised for fattening, infected with the virus have been located on the farm. The Veterinary Services at the Ministry of Agriculture are operating in an emergency format, and are continuing active monitoring in the area and isolating the virus outbreak hotspots in accordance with the procedure.

                    In view of the continued spread of the disease, the Ministry of Agriculture is honing its guidelines to the public: Avoid contact with poultry and wild birds. If you have encountered a sick bird or a wild bird carcass, or have a question on the subject, contact the Ministry of Agriculture hotline at *6016, which is operational 24 / 7.

                    As in previous cases this year, also in this case, this is a strain of bird flu that may infect humans at a low level of risk, provided precautions have been taken as clarified above and that treatment of infected poultry is carried out by professionals and with appropriate protection. The Ministry of Agriculture once again reminds the public to be meticulous about consuming chicken and egg products only after cooking, as the high heat of cooking, baking or frying destroys all bacteria and viruses in poultry. The Ministry notes that this recommendation is valid in times of routine, and now even more so under the current circumstances.

                    Guidelines for poultry and bird breeders in all parts of the country: The birds should be kept in covered and meshed cages in such a way that they cannot come into contact with wild birds or other animals; entry to the cage should be reduced to the minimum required for proper poultry care; Do not enter the cages with the shoes that you wear outside the coop; Access to non-directly owned farms and living areas should be completely avoided; Any symptoms of avian morbidity or mortality should be reported immediately to the attending veterinarian, to the municipal hotline or to the official veterinarian and, in any case, the sick poultry should not be treated nor their carcasses disposed of in an unregulated manner.

                    For more information, you can access the bird flu section at the Ministry’s website

                    This outbreak hotspot is added to the four hotspots from the beginning of the week at Ram-On (detected yesterday as being infected), at Nahalal (Monday, January 3, 2022), at Gadish and at Neot Golan (Sunday, January 2, 2022), and three other active outbreak hotspots from the past few days in the villages of Givat Yoav, Dvorah and Barak. At these three hotspots, treatment is already in advanced stages and is nearing completion. In parallel, the Ministry of Agriculture is continuing its treatment at the two most complex outbreak hotspots, at Moshav Margaliot and at the Hula Lake Reserve. At the other hotspots, including Ma’ayan Zvi, Kfar Baruch, Ein Tzurim, Avigdor and Ein Hahoresh, the Ministry of Agriculture has concluded the treatment.
