Officials in Burma say a new outbreak of bird flu has been detected among chickens in an eastern district near the Chinese border.

The state-run New Light of Myanmar newspaper said Saturday that the outbreak was found at a farm in Kentung township in eastern Shan state on November 18, after a farmer reported an unusual number of deaths in his chickens.

Officials culled an unknown number of birds at the farm.

A statement from the Myanmar Livestock and Veterinary Department urged people to prevent the entry of poultry and birds from neighboring countries into Burma.
