The federal food agency will, from tomorrow, relax some measures against Newcastle disease. Newcastle disease, or Newcastle disease, is a contagious virus that can be fatal to birds and poultry. At the end of June, an outbreak of the disease was detected in Ottergem near Erpe-Mere. Later there were also infections elsewhere in East Flanders, including in Ninove and Eeklo. Professional poultry livestock traders are allowed to sell their animals again from tomorrow, even in markets. They must, however, comply with a number of strict conditions. People can not get over the disease eating meat or eggs can not hurt.
