Meghalaya:  Ri Bhoi District Declared Containment Zone

In four of the district's villages, the district administration of Meghalaya's Ri Bhoi district has proclaimed a containment zone. This action has been taken in light of the deaths of several pigs in these regions of the state. The Umsawriang, Madan Nonglakhiat, Mawlyngkhung, and Syllei-U-Lar villages in the Ri Bhoi district of the state of Meghalaya have been ordered to comply with a district magistrate's directive. Pig deaths in the area have been attributed by the authorities to swine flu, and appropriate action has been taken in response.

The District Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Officer advised the district magistrate to implement the prohibitions under section 144 of the Cr PC. It is an effort to limit the sickness in the aforementioned villages and stop its spread. Furthermore, measures have been taken to track down any additional animals that may have become sick.

In addition, until further notice is given by the appropriate authorities, the order forbade any kind of pig rearing, slaughtering, or sale in the affected areas. Additionally, it has been mandated that all owners of pig farms and farms always maintain sanitary and biosecure conditions. To prevent contamination or the possible transmission of the illness to people or other animals, they must also restrict access to the farm facilities.
