No Bird Flu in Myanmar! Just heat stroke, respiratory disease, enteritis, pigeon pox, injury, food poison.

From the “New Light Of Myanmar”, the official news source of the military government of Myanmar we have the following denial of the presence of the Bird Flu virus in the country.

It is trying to go a bit further in its PR efforts than similar dictatorships on the planet.

They are not making a simple declaration of “Myanmar is Bird Flu Free”.

The New Light Of Myanmar, the official organ of the Military Government provides a detailed (though totally incomprehensible) message about “The death of 24 crows, 13 pigeons and one sparrow” itemizing all of the diseases these dead birds DID have and therefore, obviously DID NOT have the Bird Flu!

Here is the article:   Death of birds in Yangon unrelated to bird flu.

The death of 24 crows, 13 pigeons and one sparrow was found in townships of Yangon Division from 10 March to date.

The death of six crows and three pigeons was found in Ahlon, Shwepyitha, Insein, Mingaladon, Pazundaung and Mayangon townships on 10 March, five crows and four pigeons in Insein, P a z u n d a u n g , K y i – m y i n d i n e , P a b e d a n , Thakayta, Hlinethaya and Hline townships on 11 March, three crows and pigeons each in Sangyoung, Hline, Thingangyun, Dawbon, Mayangon and Dagon Myothit townships on 12 March, three crows, two pigeons and one sparrow in Mayangon, Dagon Myothit, Mingaladon, Insein and Seikkyikhanaungto townships on 13 March, five crows in Pazundaung, Hmawby and Thakayta townships on 14 March and two crows and one pigeon in Insein Township today.

The majority death of birds in Yangon Division was due to heat stroke, chronic respiratory disease, enteritis, pigeon pox, injury and food poison, but unrelated to bird flu.

The Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department came to the conclusion that the number of death of birds declined.
