Poultry import ban may be lifted soon


KOTA BARU: Countries that had imposed a temporary freeze on the import of Malaysian poultry pro­ducts may now consider rescinding it, as the World Organisation for Animal Health (OiE) is about to declare the country free of the H5N1 bird flu.

According to Veterinary Services Department (VSD) director-general Datuk Dr Quaza Nizamuddin Has­san Nizam, a full report was sent to OiE to enable it to declare Malaysia H5N1-free, given that no new cases were detected for 90 days from the last culling.
