The second-biggest region for cultivating poultry in Japan has been infected by avian flu, prompting the nation to round up chickens for the second time in the past 48 hours in the same Southern Japan site, Bloomberg reports.
The nation is presently collecting more than 400,000 chickens in Miyazaki as the H5 flu virus has been found in chickens found dead slightly more than five miles from where the virus was confirmed earlier this year. This past Saturday, after six of 36 chickens found dead tested positive for H5, officials in Miyazaki gathered in excess of 10,000 chickens.
"We have not received any additional reports of bird-flu outbreaks so far," Shinichi Igawa, an official at the ministry's animal health division, told Bloomberg.
The government of Japan restricted shipping birds and eggs that are within a 10-kilometer radius of the farms where H5 has been found. The nation is disinfecting vehicles in the region.
Miyazaki ranks as the country's second-largest cultivator of poultry. The top cultivator is Kagoshima, a neighboring region.
H5 was found this past November in Western Japan region Shimane and 20,000 chickens were gathered.
