The Government of Israel together with the Food and Agriculture Organization FAO has donated some Communication and laboratory equipment to the Cameroon government to help in fighting the spread of the bird-flu virus.
The equipments were handed over to the Minister of Livestock Fisheries and Animal Industries Dr. Taiga yesterday 13th July 2016 by representatives of FAO and the Ambassador of Israel.
while receiving the equipment, the Minister of Livestocks appreciated the donors saying that it has come to boost the poultry sector of the country which was already witnessing a collapse six weeks ago after the outburst of the avian influenza.
It should be noted that since the upsurge of the avian Influenza Virus at the Mfoundi Division in Yaounde and parts of the West and the Adamaoua Regions, a total of 50,000 birds have been curled.
The Government of Cameroon on its part has spent hundreds of millions FCFA to disinfect the premises so as to protect the international market from a fall since 50% of Cameroon's poultry products are being exported.
