Kota Kinabalu: The Sabah Veterinary Services Department is monitoring several locations within a 10- kilometre radius from where the bird flu outbreak occurred in Tuaran district recently.

Its Bird Flu operations director, Dr Suhaili Lusin, said so far no new cases have been detected, and operations at all affected locations have been completed.

"The culling of poultry has been completed in Kampung Laya-Laya and Tenghilan. There are no new cases.

"After this, activities will be focused on passive monitoring within a 10km radius," he told NSTP Tuesday.

Earlier this month, two new locations at Kampung Laya-Laya and Kampung Ladang Estate Tenghilan were found to have new cases of the Avian Influenza virus, involving the poultry of villagers.

Last month, cases were first traced to a positive sample from a chicken farm in Kampung Kauluan, Tuaran.
