Indore Butcher shops to be opened in the entire city except Musakhedi
To control the spread of the avian flu H5N8, commonly known as bird flu, the district administration imposed bans on the sell of chicken, following which, chicken shops all across were closed. But now they have given their okay for the reopening of chicken shops from Friday.
All shops across Indore can be opened except the ones in Musakhedi which will reopen in a week. The decision to keep Musakhedi shops closed for another week is taken as a precautionary measure as the samples from the shops at Musakhedi were the only ones that tested positive for the bird flu. Regarding the matter, Dr. Pramod Sharma, Deputy Director of the veterinary department said, “The reason we are banning opening of chicken shops in Musakhedi area for another is week is precautionary.”
