TOKYO, Jan 5 — Central Japan today started culling about 50,000 birds after the region confirmed the first highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreak during the autumn and winter season this year, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries of Japan.

A highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreak, the sixth reported case in Japan, has been confirmed on a farm housing about 50,000 chickens in the city of Yamagata in Gifu prefecture, after local authorities received reports on Thursday of an increased mortality rate among chickens at the farm, prompting swift action, based on the ministry’s press release today, reported Xinhua.

The preventive operation of culling all 50,000 birds on the affected farm started today and is expected to conclude by tomorrow, while the transportation of poultry and egg products within a 10 km radius of the outbreak’s epicentre from the affected farm to areas outside the designated zone was restricted.
