NEWCASTLE DISEASE IN BULGARIA.

The European Commission announced on 11 May that it had decided to widen a regionalised import ban on Bulgarian poultry, poultry meat and meat products, ratites, game and hatching eggs, due to an outbreak of Newcastle Disease. The ban, which is already in place for the regions of Vratsa and Blagoevgrad, will now be extended to cover the Burgas region in eastern Bulgaria, due to an outbreak of the highly contagious bird disease there in mid-April. The decision was supported by EU member states in their Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health on 20 April. It has immediate effect.
