Mangaluru: Bird fever in Kerala prompts alert in DK, special monitoring along border

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Apr 22: Bird fever has been confirmed in two gram panchayats of Alapuzha district in Kerala. Special monitoring is underway along the border areas of Kerala adjacent to the Dakshina Kannada (DK) district border.

To address this, special check posts will be established at Talapady, Jalsoor, and Saradka, starting from Monday. These measures are aimed at sanitizing vehicles transporting poultry from Dakshina Kannada to Kerala upon their return to Dakshina Kannada after delivering poultry products.

Dr Arun Kumar, deputy director of the animal husbandry and veterinary services department, stated, "Bird fever has been confirmed in Alapuzha district, Kerala, approximately 400 km from Mangaluru. This is the second reported case in this district. While no cases have been reported in Dakshina Kannada so far, we remain vigilant and will establish check posts at three strategic points."

He further explained, "Bird fever typically affects migrating birds, but as it is currently summer, migration is less common. The virus can spread from infected chickens to other birds and even to humans, especially those working in poultry farms and meat processing units. However, it does not spread from person to person."
