The government has mandated that strong biosecurity measures be implemented by bird keepers in England, Scotland, and Wales to halt the spread of bird flu.

The country’s most extraordinary avian flu outbreak ever experienced led the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs to propose the step.

It comes after local indoor dwelling regulations were implemented last week in Essex, Norfolk, and Suffolk boroughs.

According to the authorities, there is still a minimal possibility that the virus will harm people.

To stop the disease from spreading among poultry and captive birds, the chief veterinary officers of England, Scotland, and Wales announced an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) throughout Great Britain.

They refrained from requesting that all owners of birds bring their pets inside.

According to the authorities, keepers with more than 500 birds must limit access for non-essential visitors to their facilities. To reduce the chance of the disease spreading, workers would need to change their clothes and shoes before entering bird enclosures, and site vehicles would need to be frequently cleaned and disinfected.

The chief veterinary officers of England, Scotland, and Wales said in a joint statement that “bird keepers have faced the worst ever outbreak of avian flu this year and with winter bringing an even more enhanced risk to flocks when migrating birds return to the United Kingdom.”

“The best defence is meticulous biosecurity and hygiene procedures.”

The Food Standards Agency and the UK Health Security Agency both stated that there was very little danger from the virus to the general public’s health or consumer food safety. It says that eggs and other chicken products, when appropriately prepared, are safe to consume.
