South African Govt Ban Sales Of Live Hens.


South Africa Government has placed a general ban on the sale of live hens throughout the country in a bid to control an outbreak of highly contagious H5N8 bird flu.

The Agriculture Department says that exports of processed poultry products, live chickens and fresh produce will continue, depending on the requirements of importing countries.

Last week, South Africa reported an outbreak of a highly pathogenic H5N8 bird flu at a farm in the Free State province, an agricultural industry body group, AgriSA, said.

The SA Poultry Association's Kevin Lovell says: “Now there’s a greater understanding of the path of this disease, this disease was probably brought to South Africa by wild birds that have left already so that means that there’s a greater possibility that there could be a further outbreak and that the most prudent way is a temporary shutdown.”

There is a report that Zimbabwe has banned all trade in birds and chicken products from South Africa, which is in response to last week’s outbreak of bird flu at farms in Mpumalanga, and in the Free State.

Meanwhile, some citizens are already contemplating and saying this could be a Bye Bye to KFC & Nandos.
