Food expert Abdyl Sinani has given advice to citizens who are concerned about the spread of bird flu, known as H5N8.
In an interview for ‘Wake up’, Sinan has shown that if citizens encounter a chicken which has tears in its eyes and is dizzy, isolate it. The expert stressed that chickens with these marks should not be touched by hand, but only by holding gloves.
“When we see a chicken that has tears in its eyes, feces like water and dizzy, we have to isolate it. Not only that, but other chickens as well. If we know the areas given by the relevant authorities, then we do not consume the meat taken there. The food authority must do the analysis. The virus does not easily affect the human body, it affects chicken protein“, Said the food expert.
The expert added that meat is also included in sausages, and as a result an analysis of all chicken meat products is required. Asked if people should stay calm, the food expert said “no”.
“Thinking about what we removed from Covid, we now have to be more careful. An even greater control is required. A lot of work has been done recently in this regard. The consumer himself knows that the meat is stored at a certain temperature, and if the temperature is higher in the supermarket where he buys it, then it is understood that the meat has lost some protein.“, Added Sinan.
Our country has so far reported three outbreaks of bird flu, in Dajt, Fushë-Krujë and a village in Tropojë.
