Guyana: T&T's ban on poultry is premature, ill-advised

The Guyana Livestock Development Authority has described a recent ban on poultry from Guyana by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, as “ill-advised and premature”.

The authority says neither the sale nor consumption of poultry meat poses any health risks.

It is seeking to assure Guyana's public that the issue with duck disease, has been contained and restricted to six duck farms on the coast of Guyana.
