Mexico Intensifies Response to HPAI


According to the January 16th edition of USAPEEC MondayLine the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of Mexico has activated the National Animal Health Emergency Protocol that will allow the Animal Health and Food Safety Agency (SENASICA) to establish quarantines, control movement of live birds and poultry products and administer regulations relating to biologicals.  The Federal Government of Mexico has determined that H5N1 has been eliminated from 21 counties in Jalisco State.


The Government has authorized the administration of 56 million doses of AI vaccine. In addition producers are urged to operate at a high level of biosecurity, given the southward movement of migratory birds. This approach to protection is an aspirational objective given that many farms lack installations required for structural biosecurity and operational biosecurity is consequently inadequate.
