Climate Action Catalonia has intensified controls and investigations of sick and dead poultry in their natural environment in the Ebre region to prevent new bird flu outbreaks.
The goal is to quickly isolate them and analyze whether they are virus-infected animals.
This way, the risk of bird flu spreading to birds as well as humans is minimized. In fact, two more terns were found dead from bird flu last week in the Les Olles de Deltebre reservoir and in El Perelló.
The ministry has extended the radius of influence and confinement required by the agreement by 30 days – a radius of 10 kilometers from the focal point. There were 22 new closed farms (40 in total), and 180 isolated self-consumption points (680).
As Jesús Gómez, Director of the Climate Action Service for the Ebro Region, points out, the number of people tasked with investigating and analyzing dead or sick birds has increased, especially in the Ebro Delta region. “Ebre.” Ebre, where the outbreak of bird flu has occurred within the past three weeks, “will be monitored more carefully.”
This makes it possible to “detect” any foci “quickerly” and also to identify diseased animals that “in other circumstances” might not have been analyzed, despite the fact that most of the time, after analysis by the laboratory veterinarian as Gomer According to Stanley, the Spanish government has taken a negative attitude. “What has to be done now is to analyze every suspicious animal,” he insisted.
Gomez recalled that the department embraced the quarantine protocol well. “It’s the same thing that we’ve been doing over the winter in a more surgical way. We’re back in winter mode, and all the farms already know exactly how to operate, they’re ready,” he said.
