"The Ministry of Commerce instructs all levels of authorities along the border between Cambodia and Thailand to prevent all imports of chicken products from Thailand even though the products have phyto-sanitary certificates in order to protect our people's health," Cham Prasidh, Cambodia's minister of commerce, wrote in a directive.
The move came after Thai officials raided chicken slaughterhouses in Nakhon Ratchasima province on Monday and seized about eight tonnes of decomposed chicken.
The slaughterhouses had soaked dead chickens in a strong-smelling formalin solution before processing them as food products for human consumption.
Wachirawit Kritrittisak, deputy chief of Nakhon Ratchasima police, said police had already pressed at least 10 charges against the operators of four of the 11 slaughterhouses.
The suspects allegedly said that they typically supplied chicken carcasses to fish and crocodile farms. They told police they had bought them from middlemen.
The investigating team is gathering evidence against the operators of the other slaughterhouses, according to Pol Col Wachirawit.
Meanwhile, Nakhon Ratchasima Governor Raphee Phongbupphakit yesterday said a committee has been set up to look into claims of negligence after learning the slaughterhouses had allegedly sold to local food processors meat from chickens that had arrived at their facilities already dead.
The probe is expected to be completed in three days, Mr Raphee said.
The panel yesterday invited Pak Chong livestock chief Wibul Rattanapornwong, police chief Col Pakawat Thamde and two senior officers from Pak Chong and Klang Dong police stations to testify.
Earlier, the governor ordered a transfer of the provincial livestock chief, Suksawat Thongnoi, to an inactive post pending the probe into his conduct in relation to slaughterhouse operations in the district.
Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – The blue ear pig virus continues to spread. It has now reached the southern Irrawaddy Region and into Mon State in southeast Burma.
So far, six regions or states have reported outbreaks of the disease, according to the Rangoon Region Animal Husbandry and Veterinarian Department.
The virus has spread so widely due to ineffective bans on the transportation of pigs, veterinarians said.
Early this month, the Animal Husbandry and Veterinarian Department banned transporting pigs and pork into Rangoon Region.
The disease, which affects the reproductive organs and respiratory tract, was first found in the Mandalay area in February and has spread to Naypyitaw, Magway, Pegu, Rangoon, Irrawaddy and Mon states.
In early May, pathologists from the Veterinarian Institute in Thailand, who are researching the disease, visited Burma to make observations in the affected areas and offer suggestions to prevent and control the spread of disease.
In early May, although the Rangoon Region banned transporting pigs and pork from the Pegu Region, transporting pigs and pork from the Irrawaddy Region was allowed.
Rangoon Region authorities have ordered meat shops in Rangoon not to sell infected pork and said that violators would be punished. Meanwhile, the price of pork has dropped by half.
‘Earlier the price of pork thigh was 6,000 kyat (about US$ 8) per viss (1 viss =1.6 kg) but many people bought it. Now the price is just 3,500 kyat but people don’t want to buy’, a pork butcher at Thingangyun market told Mizzima.
‘To show that the pork in my shop is not infected, I hung pig heads and ears in front of my shop’, the butcher said.
A veterinarian said that the blue pig ear disease had spread from China to Burma, while another source noted that pig traders usually export pigs from Mandalay to China.
Blue spots often appear on the ears and skins of infected pigs. Because of the virus, some blood-vessels of the infected pigs are broken and the blood cannot circulate to some parts of a pig including the ears. First, red spots appear and then they turn blue, according to the Animal Husbandry and Veterinarian Department.
When the disease affects the reproductive organs, pigs can have a miscarriage or they give birth to dead or disabled piglets. When the disease affects respiratory tracts, pigs will lose their appetite, wither, run a temperature and have dripping noses and coughs, according to the department. The blue ear pig virus infection rate is more than 50 per cent.
Starting in February, state-run newspapers have periodically run articles on how to prevent the disease and authorities have launched a public awareness campaign in some townships.
On the other hand, an editor of a Rangoon-based journal told Mizzima that the government’s public awareness campaign should also be conducted in villages and in rural areas.
‘If they hear that the disease has spread to a ward, they will conduct an awareness campaign without enthusiasm only in the neighbouring wards. It’s not effective’, he said.
‘The disease has spread for a long time. They know that it is out of control. So, they should go to villages and townships in states and regions to talk directly with people in the areas. Advising people in only some areas is not enough. Some people do not read state-run newspapers’, he said.
Updated: June 17, 2011Berlin:At least 39 people have died from an outbreak in Germany of a killer strain of E Coli bacteria but the rate of new infections continues to drop, authorities said today.

It said the confirmed death toll in Germany itself had risen to 38, in addition to a woman in Sweden who is believed to have been infected during a visit to Germany days before she died.
Jun 16, 2011 (CIDRAP News) –
Egypt recently announced five new H5N1 avian influenza infections that occurred in May, three of them fatal, the World Health Organization (WHO) said today.
The infections were reported from four different governorates, and four of the case-patients are adults. The WHO said investigations revealed all five of the patients had been exposed to poultry that had suspected avian influenza. Their infections push Egypt's H5N1 totals to 149 cases, including 51 deaths.
The first case is in a 40-year-old woman from Aswan governorate who got sick May 14. She was hospitalized, where she was treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu). She recovered and has been discharged from the hospital.
Two of the patients are from Menoufia governorate's Ashmoun district, a 21-year-old pregnant woman and a 16-year-old boy. The report didn't say if the two cases had any connections, besides the geographic location. They both started having symptoms on May 21.
The woman died on May 29 after she was hospitalized and treated with oseltamivir. The boy was in critical condition, but is recovering in the hospital after antiviral treatment.
The fourth case-patient is a 31-year-old man from Qaliobia governorate who got sick on May 21 and died on Jun 5 after he was hospitalized and treated with oseltamivir.
The fifth H5N1 infection was detected in a 32-year-old man from Cairo governorate who became ill on May 23 and was hospitalized and received oseltamivir. He died on Jun 2. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported a fatal H5N1 infection in an Egyptian patient from Cairo governorate in a Jun 8 report, with few other details available other than a May 23 observation date. It's not clear if the WHO and FAO reports are referring to the same patient.
So far Egypt has reported 30 H5N1 infections this year, which exceeds the 29 cases it reported for all of 2010. However, the number of infections is still below 2009 levels, when the country saw its H5N1 case count hit 39, its highest yearly total.
Egypt's latest H5N1 infections raise the global count to 561 cases, including 328 deaths.
