UAE bans imports of poultry from Denmark

posted on 04/06/2006: 1571 views

The UAE banned yesterday imports of all kinds of wild and domesticated birds and pets and their related products and droppings from Fion town in Denmark where cases of bird flu were reported. A ministerial resolution issued by Dr. Mohammed Saeed Al Kindi, Minister of Environment and Water, demanded the ministry's animal wealth department to coordinate efforts with other authorities concerned to put the ban in place.

The minister was acted upon receiving information from the World Animal Health Organisation about the appearance of the bird flu in the Danish town. In his resolution, the minister said the ban would be enforced to prevent infiltration of any epidemic and communicable diseases into the country and to ensure health safety of members of the public and animal wealth.
