Spread in Assam India
According to sources, unnatural death of the birds has been reported from Rangamati and Sarpara since a few days back. Over 100 hens and cocks were found dead in Bongra Kachuniapara today, sources said.
The above comments describe likely additional spread of H5N1 into new areas. After confirmation of H5N1 30 km west of Guwahati, culling activities have expanded well beyond the initial radius of 3 km, 5 km, or 10 km (see updated map). The poultry deaths at these additional locations are not a surprise. Large numbers of birds migrate into the area at this time, and H5N1 has also been confirmed recently in Bangladesh.
One year ago both countries experienced massive outbreaks in the region, and poultry deaths were described in Assam. Additional poultry deaths in the region are expected.
