Bird Flu Scare in Tripura
Bangladesh has proved an unlucky neighbor for Tripura, as the northeastern state of India which borders it, is under bird flu alert.

Bird flu in Bangladesh has proved a fear factor as not only is it in close proximity to Tripura, the state also imports chicks and eggs from Bangladesh.

In the wake of the scare, the Family Welfare Preventive Medicine and the Animal Resource Development departments have jointly taken all possible steps to tackle avian flu. This is according to ARD director Narayan Chandra Das.

The state has been asked to take precautionary measures by the Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry.

A total of 266 trained ARD assistants will be given the duty of vigilance across the border.
