The results of the test conducted on the 11 chickens found dead near the Central Poultry Development Organisation has been negative for the highly patho-genic avian influenza (H5N1), according to CPDO sources.

The deaths reported from a private farm at Hessarghatta and from another place — both in CPDO’s vicinity — had sent alarm bells ringing and veterinarians had rushed to collect samples.

The authorities are continuing with the sanitisation process at the CPDO.
