An outbreak of Avian Influenza also known as ‘bird flu’ has forced Malawi government through the Ministry of Agriculture to place a ban on importation of poultry into the country.

Malawi is at risk due to the outbreak of the disease in neighboring countries across the Southern Africa.

Ministry of Agriculture’s Director of Livestock and Animal Health Patrick Chikungwa told the media on Thursday that the country’s porous borders and cross-border trading of poultry with countries that are already affected would increase risk of getting the outbreak into the country.

However, Chikungwa also assured the citizens of Malawi that the government is geared towards controlling the disease.

“Government has since intensified its prevention measures through enforcement of importation restrictions such as ban of poultry and poultry products from the infected countries”, Chikungwa told the local press.

Meanwhile, authorities have called upon the general public to cooperate in fighting the disease.

The disease was first detected in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
