LIBYA - Libya has formed a national commission to monitor the poultry fever at international and regional level, official sources said here on Tuesday. Formed by the deputy secretary of the general Libyan People`s Committee, Dr Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi, the commission will work under the supervision of the inspector general of health, Habib Thamer. It will execute strategies adopted to fight the pandemic and take necessary measures to prevent and combat poultry fever. The commission, headed by Dr Khreis Belghacem Ahmed, will also provide specific drugs and vaccines against the disease. Members of the commission were drawn from the health, veterinary medicine, endemic and communicable diseases sectors, among others, thus indicating the concern of Libyan authorities towards the poultry fever that is currently spreading in various parts of the world. A week ago, the National Prevention Centre against Communicable and Endemic Diseases affirmed that no poultry fever existed in any part of Libya. <i>Source: AngolaPress</i>
