Ghana bans sale, movement of live poultry to stop bird flu spread

A statement from Ghana's ministry of agriculture said people would no longer be allowed to transport live birds -- and a poultry farmer said that meant vendors would not be able to sell the birds eitherGhana has banned the sale and transport of live poultry after the H5N1 virus killed thousands of birds, while there has been no record of human infection, the ministry of agriculture has said. The statement from the ministry, published on Wednesday, said people would no longer be allowed to transport live birds — and a poultry farmer said that meant vendors would not be able to sell the birds either. The ban came as “two poultry farms with a total of 3,600 birds at Denu and Keta (towns) in the Volta region were… destroyed due to infections on the farms,” the ministry said.
