Bird Flu catches on in Bengal

Hi friends,

Bad news about Bird Flu again. This disease has managed to stay in the news for a long time since last year. It is making news again, this time, in India. Bird flu [Images] spread to further areas of West Bengal on Tuesday as the Centre increased the target of number of poultry to be culled to nearly 15 lakh.

Samples from two more blocks of Nadia district, three blocks of Burdwan district and two blocks of Birbhum districts were confirmed to be positive for bird flu.

Briefing the media, Animal Husbandry Commissioner S K Bandopadhyay, however, said the total number of districts where the bird flu virus has spread remains seven, which includes Birbhum, South Dinajpur, Murshidabad, Nadia, Burdwan, Malda and Bankura.
