Bird flu virus detected in Japan
www.chinaview.cn 2005-06-27 08:25:59

    BEIJING, June 27 -- The H5N2-type avian influenza virus has been detected in chickens at a poultry farm in Mitsukaido, east Japan's Ibaraki Prefecture.

    The Japanese Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry has confirmed the infection of chickens with the virus at the farm after about 430 of its 25,000 chickens died between March and May.

    Poultry farms in the area have reportedly been barred from moving their chickens and eggs beyond a radius of five kilometers from the bird-flu infected farm.

    The local government will begin disinfecting or disposing of the chickens and eggs at the farm on Monday.
