Pyongyang, March 27 (KCNA) -- A dynamic work is now under way in different parts of the country to combat bird flu that plagues the world.
The State Emergency Veterinary and Anti-Epizootic Committee has been organized to supervise the campaign.
According to members of the committee, bird flu has recently broken out at a few chicken farms including the Hadang Chicken Farm.
Upon its outbreak on those farms the committee lost no time to take emergency measures and meticulously organized veterinary and anti-epizootic work to prevent its spread to other poultry farms.
Hundreds of thousands of infected chickens have been burned before their burial at the relevant chicken farms and officials, scientists and technicians of the institutions that specialize in the poultry industry are busy with researches to eradicate bird flu virus.
No one is reported to have been infected with this bird flu from among breeders of those farms.
Officials of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Public Health and in other relevant fields have already set up mechanisms to prevent the spread of bird flu and are mobilizing broad masses for this campaign.
