Indonesia: AI outbreak in Kutai Kertanegara district
Recently, the livestock and animal health official of East Kalimantan province claimed that around 20,000 birds of kampong chicken reared intensively, not backyard farming, in Kutai Kertanegara district were dead because of Avian Influenza (AI).
It has been checked by using rapid test kit of AI and laboratory tests, reports Arief Fachurdin for World Poultry.
In order to prevent the spreading of the virus, around 800 birds of kampong chicken located near to the outbreak location have been depopulated by the official.
The official analysed that uncontrolled distribution of chicken (live bird) from other districts such as from Balikpapan and Samarinda where recent AI outbreaks were also found, might be the cause of the outbreak in Kutai Kertanegara district.
