The Guyana Livestock Development Authority (GLDA) staged a 2nd simulated break out of the High Pathogenicity Avian Influenza (HPAI), or “bird flu,” on Wednesday at an Agriculture Extension Centre in Kuru Kururu.

The Department of Public Information (DPI) says that the three-day simulation workout is indicated to test how well Guyana is prepared to manage a break out of the “bird flu” or other illness that can be spread out from animals to human beings.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that zoonotic illness are triggered by infections, germs, parasites, and fungis that can infect human beings and make them ill.

After the simulated break out is over, GLDA and its partners will determine where they require to make modifications to how they manage break outs of HPAI and other zoonotic illness.

Dr. Randy Storm, who is the Senior Veterinary Officer at the GLDA, informed the Department of Public Information (DPI) that the 2nd simulated workout worked out.

“It was a good exercise, and we were able to figure out our strengths, weaknesses, and gaps, as well as how we can improve our collaboration, since many international organizations are pushing the One Health initiative,” said Dr. Storm.
