DETAILS: The infected chicken broiler farm is expected to regain its ILT negative status in late October. The site has been emptied of the birds present during initial infection and recommended disease control and eradication measures have been applied.

Enhanced biosecurity and monitoring of broiler farms in the risk area continues.
