Report on NCF Response to the Adenovirus Outbreak

 

 

 

In response to concerns about reports of the spread of the Adenovirus into NSW, the Executive of the NCF called an extraordinary meeting of members. The meeting was held at the Lake macquarie clubrooms 9am 18th December.

 

 

 

Outcome of meeting

 

 

 

It is recommended that NCF members refrain from transporting pigeons in and out of the Hunter region until we can get a clearer picture of the situation. We are not making it mandatory to shut down but some members who have received birds from outside the region are choosing to do so.

 

 

 

Excerpts from the articles by Dr Rob Marshall were read out particularly the symptoms.
