About 200 Crows have died in the central Park at Delhi’s Mayur Vihar Phase-III amidst the threat of bird flu. The park authorities are currently carrying out sanitation operations and have been closed to the common people. Yesterday, the bodies of five crows were sent to Jalandhar for the test by the authorities.

According to Mayur Vihar Phase 3, Central Park caretaker Tinku Chaudhary about 150-200 Crows died in the last 1 week. He further told ANI that they are not allowing anybody to come to the park. Even today, 15-16 Crows have died. Samples of dead crow have been sent for investigation.

According to a statement issued by the government on Thursday, when the case came to light a quick response team was sent at Central Park in Mayur Vihar Phase Three on the directions of Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. The statement said 17 crows were found dead in the park and four samples were collected. The remaining dead birds were buried deep inside the ground. Two crows were also found dead at DDA Park, Dwarka, and the sample was collected from there.

Earlier, an official from the animal husbandry department had said it has not yet been confirmed whether these deaths have been caused by bird flu infection or not.

Delhi: Teams to investigate hot spots for Bird Flu 

Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia had said on Thursday that there is no case of bird flu in the city so far and authorities have been asked to keep an eye on poultry birds coming from neighboring states to prevent the spread of infection. Officials said, 11 quick response teams, have been set up to monitor possible hot spots in Delhi. Sisodia has asked to keep an eye on poultry markets, reservoirs, birdhouses, and other possible places. These include Ghazipur fish and poultry market, Shakti Sthal Lake, Sanjay Lake, Delhi’s Chidya Ghar, and small ponds built in DDA parks.

The central government had said on Wednesday that bird flu cases are coming from 12 places in Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Kerala, while Haryana also has a high alert after the abnormal death of a large number of chickens in the poultry farm of Panchkula.

In Delhi, eggs and chicken traders are incurring heavy losses due to rising cases of alleged bird flu. A chicken shop shopkeeper said that there is no work for the last 3-4 days due to bird flu. Earlier, we use to earn Rs. 8-10 thousand per day and now the earning is only Rs. 2-3 thousand.

Ghazipur Mandi General Secretary Mohammad Salim said that with the fear of bird flu, we have set up a committee of 5-6 members which is examining the market and the quality of poultry at various shops.
