Sixty five chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys died in eight yards in Pokrovka, and the bird death number continues rising. A quarantine was imposed in the village, and all the 5,000 domestic birds there will be killed. Special teams carry out the measures to prevent the infection from spreading -- to kill birds, disinfect poultry yards, vaccinate villagers against flu and monitor the state of health of people. The groups consist of veterinarians, medical specialists, policemen and specialists from the department for emergencies. Veterinary, sanitary and other special measures are also taken in the district centre of Novichikha, where 32 birds died over four days. Specialists suspect it is bird flu.
