NEW DELHI, Jan 27: Maharashtra, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh have reported that bird flu (avian influenza) is spreading to more areas in the States. While in Maharashtra bird flu infection has spread to eight more districts, in the two other States it has been detected in only one more district each.

The Union Ministry of Animal Husbandry and Dairying said bird flu was confirmed in poultry samples from Nanded, Solapur, Pune, Ahmednagar, Buldhana, Akola, Nashik and Hingoli districts of Maharashtra, Bhavnagar district of Gujarat and Dhamtari district of Chhattisgarh.

Nine States have been affected by bird flu so far, according to the Ministry. They are Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Kerala.

The Centre is providing funds to the States to give compensation to farmers whose poultry birds, eggs and feed are being destroyed. The Maharashtra Government has distributed Rs.1.3 crore for the poultry and other birds culled. Culling is done in one km radius of the infected area.

Health experts have stated that consumption of poultry products is safe if cooked properly.
