And yesterday, Tuesday 13, the Ministry of Agro Industry has banned some farms from selling their chickens. The reason is suspected of salmonella. Especially the chicks that were purchased from the Ministry at Réduit station where the first cases of this kind were detected. Moreover, ducks have also been contaminated with salmonella.
A study began in 115 small poultry farms on Monday. It aims to determine whether the disease has spread. The source of the disease is suspected to be the Réduit station.
