Indian Madhya Pradesh government imposed a ban on the movement of avian species (birds) in certain areas for the next three months to arrest spread of bird flu, report agencies.
As India continues to be plagued by coronavirus, rising cases of bird flu in several states have also come as a major cause of concern.
To tackle the flu, many control rooms have been set up to take stock on a daily basis of preventive and control measures undertaken by state authorities.
However, the state government of Madhya Pradesh (MP) has gone a step further and issued a bizarre order to deal with the cases of bird flu in the state.
According to a report by The Times Now, the state's Department of Animal Husbandry, the government has imposed a ban on the movement of avian species (birds) in certain areas for three months to tackle the disease.
The movement ban will be effective in certain villages in the districts of Mandsaur, Jhabua, Harda and Raisen.
