The world is not going to erradicate migratory birds and waterfowl harbouring avian influenza. It is not possible to eliminate virus particles from the world. Stamping out is killing millions of healthy birds mercilessly. Many poultry producers are getting bankrupt with the disease. Nobody can compensate the loss of a poultry farm when it is wiped out within few days.The vaccines are providing protection. More countries are turning to vaccination. There are issues like mutation which warrants constant watch on the sub types and change of strategy. In the name of stamping out research on vaccines is not being encouraged. If encouraged, i am sure that the scientists will find effective ways to tackle the disease, encouraging new research and technology.
Dear Dr. Kateri Bertran, I think that the processes of stamping out to overcome AI infection has been failed and the disease appear again so we killed millions of healthy birds but we did not succeed to overcome the problem. In Egypt, in my company, we decided to choose a place and plan of movement to avoid AI infection and we succeeded for about 7 years. If you are interested in this subject I can explain our plan.
Dr. Khalid, thank you for your good information. Please make me a chance to get it through.
