There have been reports of the outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in the country. In this regard, the Government of Nagaland’s Directorate of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services has appealed to the public to report “unusual sickness and mortality of poultry birds, ducks, pet birds” to the nearest Veterinary Health Centre. The public has also been told “not to handle and consume such poultry birds/ducks which have died suddenly”.

Poultry owners have been told not to mix outside (unknown source) live poultry birds/ducks into their stock to prevent transmission of diseases.

The Directorate of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services has also told all Chief Veterinary Officers (CVOs) to issue ‘Red Alert’ notices to all subordinate officers, field officers, staff and village functionaries about the issue. These officials and staff have also been told to formulate a ‘strong disease reporting system’ within respective districts through education and communication campaigns and familiarize the public about the risk to avian and human population. The CVOs are also to coordinate with the Forest and Wild Life Department on the status of wild birds.
