  • [01] Greece fully prepared for bird flu, Agriculture Minister says

    Greece is fully prepared against the bird flu virus, Agricultural Development Minister Evangelos Basiakos told regional authority heads on Tuesday, explaining that the government has adopted all relevant EU measures and is working closely with local authorities.

    Basiakos asked local officials to contain free-range poultry, particularly in border regions and areas that are near wetlands.

    The minister said that cooperation among local authorities is being reinforced, including police, customs, health inspection agencies and breeders' organisations.

    Furthermore, inspections aimed at ensuring that resources necessary to deal with the disease are in sufficient supply will be carried out on a daily basis.

    Finally, Basiakos said that seminars will soon be held aimed at educating breeders, hunters and other local organisations about the dangers of the disease, necessary preventive measures, as well as related fees and penalties in the event of violations.

    An Emergency Action Plan in case bird flu is suspected or confirmed has also been set up.
