Why Botswana Banned Poultry Products from South Africa
The avian influenza disease, bird flu has continue to take its toll on farmers across the world. One of the major way to avoid it coming into a territory is to totally short out poultry related product from infected areas.
To stop Avian Influenza from spreading to Botswana, the country has banned poultry products from South Africa after the agriculture department confirmed the outbreak of bird flu in the country.
The outbreak of H5 Avian Influenza was found at a commercial chicken-layer farm in Ekurhuleni. And approximately 300 birds have died.
The same farm was also part of the H5N8 highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreak in 2017.
But, the South African Poultry Association has indicated the situation has been contained to the farm and says it is also constantly being monitored.
