Bird Flu in Banke reports

Nepalnews,com has reported Aian Influenza (AI) in Banke (Terai) district in Mid Western Developmental region of Nepal. It is not surprising that AI is detected in Banke due to the porous Indo - Nepal boder, poor border management and weak surveillance system in Nepal. Doubt remains, whether we have been able to detect most of the suspected AI outbreaks?. Please read below published in, "Bird flu, the Avian Influenza H5N1 virus, has been detected in various four places of Banke district.District Livestock Services Office, Banke confirmed the prevalence of bird flu in the district on Tuesday after it received a report from the central laboratory in Kathmandu.
