How to control avian influenza
The Notifiable Avian Diseases Control Strategy sets out the disease control measures we would take if Avian Influenza was suspected or confirmed in the UK.
All birds on the infected premises would be culled. Disease control zones would be declared with movement restrictions and controls on birds, meat, eggs, and anything likely to spread disease within the zones. The outbreak will be controlled in line with the contingency plan for exotic notifiable diseases.
