Malaysia's Department of Veterinary Services （DVS） has reported an outbreak of H5N1 avian flu （bird flu） in a village of Kota Bharu, Kelantan.
2. The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority （AVA） would like to assure the public that poultry and poultry products in Singapore are safe for consumption. The current outbreak in Kelantan does not have any impact on Singapore's poultry and egg supply as Singapore only allows import of poultry and eggs from the disease free zones in Malaysia – Johor, Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Selangor and Perak. We do not import poultry and eggs from Kelantan as it is not an approved source.
3. AVA will continue to work closely with Malaysia's DVS to ensure that poultry and eggs imported do not compromise public and animal health.
