Bird Flu Hits Accra, Volta And Central Regions

The Food and Agriculture Ministry through its Veterinary Services Directorate has confirmed the outbreak of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza disease, otherwise known as Bird flu in some parts of the country.

These are the Greater Accra, Central and Volta Regions.

The outbreak of the disease follows the detection of similar cases in neighbouring countries since January 2021.

The Ministry in a press statement said “Through effective surveillance and disease control management, the Veterinary Services Directorate has prevented the extension of the disease into Ghana until now.”
