Oman has barred import of poultry and poultry products from India for a second time in 2012 following an outbreak of bird flu virus in Karnataka.
According to a report in the Muscat Daily, a senior official in Oman's ministry of agriculture and fisheries (MoAF) said the restrictions came into effect this week. On September 18, Fuad bin Jaafar al Sajwani, the minister of agriculture and fisheries, had announced the lifting of a ban on the import of live birds and poultry products from India.
The earlier ban was imposed in March after the OIE had confirmed reports of the spread of the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus in a few districts of Odisha, Tripura and Meghalaya.
Karnataka confirmed in October the detection of avian influenza in turkey and chicken at a farm where the H5N1 virus claimed over 3,600 turkeys.
