Flaws In Bird Flu Preparedness

Authorities running poultry farms in Australia really lack experience in meeting outbreaks due to engagement in the emergency response of farms.

National health committees report said the steps and exersises did not allow a realistic test to the federal and state governments resources or legal powers. Thorough planning for resource demands over the potential magnitude and length of the response was lacking said agricultural agencies.

Mr McGauran-health minister said, he was satisfied with the Australia's simulation, plans and their overall result,but needs to be improved in some areas.This progress results from the steps taken since the first national exercise, Minotaur, in 2002.

Improvements are incorporated into our response arrangements and now 'Australia's poultry flocks are better trained and prepared to manage avian flu outbreak', he said.
