Thousands of Poultry Destroyed in Israel Newcastle Disease Outbreaks

17 December 2015

ISRAEL - There have been four outbreaks of Newcastle disease in Israel's Hazafon region.

The outbreaks affected two broiler farms and two layer operations.

Over 34 thousand birds were destroyed as a result of the outbreaks, to try and prevent the disease from spreading. Some birds also died from the disease itself, though a lack of data meant the exact number was not calculated.

Movement controls, screening and quarantines are also being used to control the outbreaks.
