• To keep the country free of avian influenza subtypes, SAGARPA urged to farmers so that if they detect any suspected foreign animal disease, the report immediately.

• The SENASICA ordered his regional coordinators strengthen epidemiological surveillance in wildlife migratory birds, particularly in the Pacific route.

The National Health Service, Food Safety and Quality (SENASICA) and the National Union of Poultry Farmers (UNA) are urging the country to keep poultry biosecurity and disease control on farms, in the presence of avian influenza virus Highly Pathogenic H5N8 and H5N2 in wild birds in the United States of America (USA) and Canada.

In order to keep the country free of these subtypes of avian influenza, the agency of the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) urged producers to detect if any suspicion of exotic disease, the report immediately.

The SENASICA invites the general public, especially people related to wildlife, to notify the Directorate General of Animal Health suspected disease or mortality in birds, including wild, songbirds and ornamental, or backyard poultry production .

To this end, they can call 24 hours a day 365 days a year to free emergency number: 01 800 75 12 100 may also contact the alternate telephone numbers: (01 55) 52 59 14 41 (01 55) 36 18 August 21 to 30 and (0155) 59 05 10 00 ext. 51234 and 51235, during office hours.

These actions were launched before the confirmation from the Veterinary Services of the US, particularly in the laboratories of the Department of Agriculture (USDA, for its acronym in English), the isolation of viral subtypes H5N8 and H5N2 virus of highly pathogenic avian influenza in wild birds in Whatcom County in Washington state, which may be related to the recently identified H5N2 in Canada.

After USDA report to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE, by its French acronym), SENASICA ordered his regional coordinators, strengthen epidemiological surveillance in wildlife migratory birds, particularly in the Pacific route, and promote among poultry farmers in their areas timely reporting of any suspected detected in their production units.

Recall that these actions are carried out according to the Emergency Plan with Mexico has to prevent the entry of exotic diseases, which is focused on the implementation of preventive measures, pua effect of keeping the country free of diseases not present in the country.

These activities are coordinated by SAGARPA, through SENASICA and are held together with state governments and poultry producers in the country, as well as veterinary authorities in North America, consistent with the actions set out in the Plan North for Animal and Pandemic Influenza (NAPAPI, for its acronym in English) America.

Globally, Mexico plays an important role as a producer of eggs and broilers, making it necessary to protect the investment of poultry farmers and strengthen health measures towards prevention.

A SENASICA and constantly meet to discuss the expectations of poultry products in the market and coordinate health actions, such as early warning and immediate response to any case of illness or mortality in commercial poultry farms.

SENASICA continuously working with producers for immediate attention and intervention of governments in the control and eradication of outbreaks, allowing the country to maintain their health status and partners recognize the achievements of the joint actions of poultry and veterinary authorities.

Importantly, these viruses are not involved with human cases and, globally, only found in birds, which are not considered relevant to public health.
