Nepal bans supply and sales of poultry products

07.08.2013

Government authorities in Nepal have imposed a ban on the supply and sales of poultry products after bird flu cases were found at several poultry farms in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur. The country has seen a steady increase in outbreaks since July 16. More than 60,000 chickens have been culled at 27 farms in the valley since then. As a backlash, the price of goat meat soared to USD 8/kg over the weekend from USD 7/kg previously.
