Some Japanese researchers believe that the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus that spread in the country in recent months has changed a lot from its predecessors and made it a little harder to successfully take preventive measures against it.
Japanese health officials say that according to recent assessments, more than 90 percent of the country’s poultry farms have deficiencies in preventing wildlife from entering the farm.
According to published statistics, the disease has so far spread to more than a third of the country.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan, the outbreak of the disease, which began in November, has broken previous records for the number of birds culled and lost in one season.
It should be noted that the outbreak of this disease in Japan has caused problems in the supply of chicken meat and other poultry products in this country.
