The Punjab Government has declared the whole state as a ‘Controlled Area’ in view of the outbreak of Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) affecting birds including poultry in the neighbouring states. In another major decision, Punjab imposed complete ban on import of live birds including poultry and unprocessed poultry meat for any purpose into the state of Punjab with immediate effect till 15 January, 2021.
