The Philippines has placed a temporary ban on poultry imports from the UK after the UK’s Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) confirmed an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) serotype H7N7 among free range and house-laying hens in Lancashire, England.
Defra reported the outbreak on July 14. The ban includes domestic and wild birds, poultry meat, day-old chicks, eggs and semen however, frozen poultry meat that was slaughtered or processed 21 days prior to the HPAI outbreak will be allowed entry, subject to compliance to veterinary quarantine rules and regulations. The Philippines has been strictly monitoring its borders to keep AI at bay.
