Brussels, August 22 - The European Union
Commission has approved Italy's decision to create zones of
protection and surveillance around the chicken farm in
Ostellato, the Northern Italian province of Ferrara, where a
strain of H7N7 bird flu has been identified.
The local municipality of Ostellato as such will be
submitted to strict sanitary controls until September 23,
together with the nearby towns of Argenta, Comacchio,
Migliarino, Migliaro, Portomaggiore and Tresigallo.
The objective will be to avoid any shipments from there to
the EU and non-EU zones of live poultry, poultry ready for the
laying of eggs, young chicks or eggs bearing ckicks.
The EU Commission explained its decision to approve the
stringent measures due to the "very contagious disease".
