KUWAIT - The Supreme Committee for Combating Bird Flu will soon declare Kuwait free of the disease and lift the embargo imposed on poultry farms where some infected birds were found.

All live chicken outlets will also reopen within the next two weeks, said informed official sources at the committee, adding that due compensations would be paid to those affected by the embargo.

Moreover, the sources said that no infections have been recorded in past ten days, and bird flu has "vanished" from farms in Wafra where it had been heavily detected. The sources also noted that infected farm owners would be compensated within the next ten days, before allowing the farms to resume operations, for losses incurred by the culling of their poultry and banning the sale of live chicken.
