The Ministry of Food and Agriculture has announced the outbreak of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza disease, also known as Bird Flu, in three regions in the country.

The Ministry in a statement said its Veterinary Services Directorate has detected the Flu in the Greater Accra, Central and Volta Regions.

This the Ministry explained was through effective surveillance and disease control management after an outbreak in neighbouring countries.

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

“Through effective surveillance and disease control management, the Veterinary
Services Directorate has prevented the extension of the disease into Ghana until now,” part of the statement read.
