Bulgaria: BGN 5-6 M Needed To Deal With Bird Flu in Bulgaria BGNES

Between BGN 5 M and BGN 6 M will be needed in order for the state to deal with bird flu and compensate farmers, stated outgoing Agriculture Minister Desislava Taneva.

Taneva explained that bird flu is not dangerous for people.

“59 locations of infection have been registered. Four of these consist of wild ducks, the rest is home-bred poultry. Bird flu does not threaten people and they should remain calm. Humans cannot be infected by consuming chicken meat,” said Taneva.
