Until now, only a single case of bird flu infection has been confirmed in the country. The presence of large lakes across the county is believed to attract a lot of migratory birds. The presence of bird flu infection in domestic fowl however has been ruled out.

Health officials belonging to the veterinary department have instituted strict monitoring and stringent surveillance measures in the country. With such measures, the number of cases is only likely to increase in the next few days.
