There were reports earlier that four people in the area who had come in contact with the infected birds were suffering from fever or Acute Respiratory Tract Infection (ARI).

The samples of those people sent for medical examination to National Institute of Virology in Pune and National Institute of Communicable Diseases in Delhi were also found negative for Avian Influenza virus.

Close to two lakh birds have been culled in the State, and the Centre has already alerted neighbouring Mizoram to check illegal smuggling of hens from across Myanmar where incidents of bird flu outbreak have occurred very often.
