L'interdiction de montrer des poulets et les canards lors d'une exosition qui aura lieu la semaine prochaine dans le sud de l'Angleterre a été levée par la DEFRA.

Show's bird flu measures lifted

A ban on showing chickens and ducks at the South of England Show next week, after a case of bird flu in Wales, has been lifted.

The show is held every year at Ardingly, West Sussex, by the South of England Agricultural Society which was founded in 1967.

Organisers of the show had said chickens and ducks would not be shown after a ruling from Defra.

But Defra has now said the restriction has been lifted.

Restrictions lifted

A spokeswoman for Defra said: "There are now no restrictions. Organisers will be under the general conditions of their licence."

In Wales, bird flu has been confirmed on a Conwy smallholding, but tests have since proved negative on a Llyn peninsula farm.

The first case of avian flu in Wales was confirmed on 24 May among chickens on a smallholding near Corwen in Denbighshire.

The National Public Health Service for Wales (NPHSW) has said the health risk to the general public is low.

In its latest bulletin on Saturday, it said the number of people - 252 - who may have had contact with the avian flu remained unchanged for the previous two days.

Most were now outside of the incubation period.

Dr Marion Lyons, consultant in communicable disease control for the NPHSW said they remained vigilant.

"There are 237 people where there is now no risk at all of infection, or further infection, with this avian flu virus," she said.

"This is very reassuring to them. It is also very reassuring to us because it demonstrates that the already low risk of spread is confirmed."
