Gov't to Boost Monitoring Efforts for AI Through Next April

The government will boost monitoring activities for avian influenza(AI) ahead of the winter season when migratory birds start to flock to the nation.
The Environment Ministry’s National Institute of Environmental Research will collect some two-thousand fecal samples at 30 key wintering sites of migratory birds across the nation from the middle of this month through next April. The institute will also capture some one-thousand wild birds and carry out an analysis of their biological samples.
The institute will share the results of its studies with related quarantine organizations, including the Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency, while cooperating the government’s consultative group on AI, among other institutions.
If a case of highly pathogenic AI is detected, the institute will be ready to operate a crisis response team within its Environmental Health Research Department.
The institute will also hold a mock investigation jointly with quarantine experts from the U.S.’ National Wildlife Health Center for five days starting from next Monday on handling highly pathogenic AI cases.
