BAHA says some birds from the affected farms will still be slaughter for public consumption

Since the virus was detected in the country, to stem its spread, almost thirty thousand birds have been slaughtered and disposed of. However, the thousands of chickens from the six other affected farms will be screened for the virus before they are either slaughtered or processed for human consumption. Dr. Miguel Depaz, BAHA’s Director of Animal Health, says that due to the virus’ low pathogenicity some birds may have been able to fight off the virus. BAHA has also ramped up testing in the Orange Walk District where poultry is sold fresh. Dr. Depaz explained that at this time the organization does not believe the virus has affected other farms through the movement of live poultry.
