|This work is usually done twice a year -- in spring and autumn--, but as bird flu cases were exposed we decided to begin this procedure
ahead of time,` Panteleyev emphasized.
He also noted that [to date] 5 bird flu [outbreaks] have been registered in the Moscow region: in the Domodedovo (south-east), Taldom (north), Podolsk (south), Naro-Fominsk (south-west) districts, and in Zvenigorod (west).
`In all cases people bought poultry for their small farms at the Moscow poultry market,` the acting governor recalled.
The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision also confirmed the information about purchases of the bird flu-infected poultry in Moscow.
`Experts have drawn conclusions that a bird flu
outbreak in these districts was caused by the infected poultry bought at the Moscow poultry market,` chief press officer of the Russian
veterinary service, Alexei Alekseyenko, pointed out.
