PANAJI: Just days after the South Goa collectorate banned the entry of poultry and poultry products from neighbouring states, the North Goa district magistrate has followed suit. Transportation and entry of birds and eggs from Maharashtra and Karnataka into the district, ‘either directly or indirectly’, has been prohibited.
A notice issued on Monday by the North Goa collectorate read that “Any person contravening this order shall be punishable under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.”
TOI had reported last week that the South Goa district magistrate had taken the ban decision after cases of avian influenza (bird flu) were reported in other states.
Meanwhile, the state directorate of animal husbandry and veterinary services has requested citizens to report any unusual sickness and mortality in poultry and wild birds to the state nodal officer for avian influenza (bird flu) at the office of the assistant director, disease investigation unit, Tonca-Caranzalem.
“The nodal officer may be reached also in case of additional information about the same in avian species in your vicinity. The advisory by department of animal husbandry and dairying, New Delhi has informed the general public that poultry products cooked at over 70 degrees Celsius temperature for 30 minutes inactivates the virus.”
