Following the detection of the bird flu virus at a poultry farm in Mitoyo City, Kagawa Prefecture, Kagawa Prefecture hopes to complete the work of disposing of approximately 330,000 birds and burying them underground by the middle of this month.
We are also taking steps to prevent wild animals from invading poultry farms to prevent the spread of the infection.
Following the detection of highly pathogenic "H5" avian influenza virus in chickens at a poultry farm in Mitoyo City, Kagawa Prefecture on the 5th, the prefecture is proceeding with the disposal of approximately 330,000 birds with the Self-Defense Forces.
By the evening of the 5th, about 3,400 chickens had been disposed of, and the prefecture wants to finish the work of burying the disposed chickens in the ground by the middle of this month.
In addition, Governor Hamada of Kagawa Prefecture told reporters on the night of the 5th that he would support poultry farmers who maintain fences and wire mesh to prevent wild animals from invading poultry farms and spreading the infection.
On the other hand, after the Ministry of the Environment designated the area within a radius of 10 km from the poultry farm as a priority area for monitoring wild birds, the prefecture dispatched an expert to the site on the 6th, and dead wild birds fell in the area. I will investigate whether it is not.
