Delhi bans chicken sale and warns restaurants amid bird flu scare

Jan 13, 2021 18:14 IST

North and South Delhi Municipal Corporations on Wednesday banned the sale of chicken after the government confirmed multiple cases of bird flu in the national capital. Hotels and restaurants were warned against serving egg-based dishes or poultry meat. Action will be taken against restaurant owners if the eateries are found serving poultry meat, poultry product or any egg-related dishes. Poultry shops and meat processing units in areas under NDMC are prohibited from selling or storing poultry or processed, or packaged, chicken meat with immediate effect, till further orders. The orders came after the Health Department asked people not to panic and follow a set of dos and don'ts.
