Nicaragua continues bird flu prevention for possible emergency

Managua, Mar 14 (Prensa Latina) The national drill to prevent a bird flu outbreak has been underway for second day in Nicaragua in order to train healthcare teams and population for possible nationwide emergency.

Iván Ramírez, Chilean specialist and instructor, praised on Monday how significant the epidemiological research is to quickly detect the disease.

Ricardo Somarriba, executive director at Nicaragua’s Institute for Agricultural Protection and Health (IPSA), told the press about seriousness and global impact of bird flu.

In this regard, IPSA has rolled out a biosecurity plan in Nicaragua, which includes protecting ports, airports, and borders and checking imported products, Somarriba said.

According to the World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH), bird flu outbreaks have been also reported in nine others Central and South American nations for the first time since 2002.
