Bangladesh finds two outbreaks of H5N1 bird flu in poultry

A first case was found at a poultry farm in Dhamrai, just outside the capital, Dhaka. Out of 3,000 Sonali type poultry at risk from the outbreak, 732 died from the virus and the rest were slaughtered, according to the Paris-based OIE on Monday. Bangladesh was first hit by bird flu in 2007, when more than a million birds were culled. Different strains of bird flu have been spreading across Europe and Asia since late last year, leading to mass culling of poultry in certain countries and some human deaths in China. This prompted the World Health Organization to call on all countries on Monday to monitor closely outbreaks of the deadly virus in birds and poultry and to report promptly any human cases that could signal the start of a flu pandemic.

No risk in using bamboo, wood as extra support in rail bridges: Ministry

The ministry issued a statement on Monday after media reports on the matter created concerns. The reports said bamboos were used in place of iron sheets on wooden slippers of the rail bridges in Kurhigram. In some places, tree trunks were used instead of wooden slippers. The ministry said there is 'no scope' of accidents to occur on such bridges because those 'do not actually take the load of the train'. "Bamboo and pieces of wood are being used as extra support for a long time locally so that the rails cannot go out of square and come closer," the statement said.

They made their observations to bdnews24.com in the wake of the continued market surge and amidst a buoyant finance minister exuding confidence about having a formidable stock market by 2020.
