No special measures against bird flu in Slovakia

EUROPE is bracing itself for a bird flu pandemic, but the situation in Slovakia remains calm. Airports, railways and border controls are operating normally although Health Minister Rudolf Zajac has identified these places as risky from the point of view of infection, the daily Hospodárske noviny reported.

While Hungary and Germany has strengthened its controls, Slovakia is still keeping standard measures. "So far we have not required stricter controls but we are prepared to cooperate," Michal Borgula, director of border police told the daily.

The Slovak Health Ministry will prepare a pandemic plan this week, a package of measures in case bird flu breaks out in Slovakia. The cabinet should also decide on funding for the measures.
