WALES, Cardiff. Restrictions on poultry and captive birds in Wales to limit the spread of avian flu are to be lifted on Monday. Orders to keep them indoors were given in December following outbreaks across Europe, with cases then arising in Carmarthenshire and Conwy. This was reported by BBC News.
Announcing the end of the prevention measures, Griffiths said the most recent assessments found a low-to-medium risk of wild waterfowl being infected, and low but heightened for poultry farms, depending on the biosecurity measures in place at each farm. "This level is consistent with November 2016, when disease was present across Europe in sporadic outbreaks and occasional wild bird findings were being reported," she said.
