Poultry ban

The Cambodian government on February 5 imposed a ban on poultry entering from neighboring

countries in a precaution against bird flu, local media reported. Health officials

were told to strictly enforce the order following recent outbreaks of bird flu in

Vietnam and Thailand, said Kao Phal, director of animal health at Ministry of Agriculture

and Fishery. Meanwhile, the government stipulated that only local poultry with safety

guarantees can be circulated within the country. It also reminded local people who

used to celebrate their festivals with poultry to handle sacrifices and meals carefully.
