LES ECHOS 26/11/21 La pandémie a souri aux volailles de Loué. FOOD SAFETY MAGAZINE 12/08/21 What We Learned from COVID-19 Infections in Meat and Poultry Workers. Agricultural Systems Volume 190, May 2021, Impacts of COVID-19 on Myanmar's chicken and egg sector, with implications for the sustainable development goals. Highlights COVID-19 has severely impacted chicken and egg production in Myanmar.
Chicken farms experienced a partial V-shaped recovery between June and August. Broiler farms had more rapid supply responses to the shock than layer farms. Integrated layer-fish farms were more resilient to the shock than pure layer farms. The drop in production and employment inhibits Myanmar's progress toward the SDGs. Abstract Chicken and eggs make important contributions to the food and nutrition security of low-income households in Myanmar, making it important to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on Myanmar's poultry sector. First, we evaluate the responsiveness and resilience of different chicken and egg farming systems in Myanmar to the shock of COVID-19.
We conducted six waves of telephone interviews from June to November 2020 with 269 chicken farms close to Yangon. Food Control Available online 18 March 2021 Surveying the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the poultry supply chain: A mixed methods study. Highlights The coronavirus epidemic has severely disrupted the input supply.
The coronavirus epidemic has disrupted supply chain governance. In the supply chain, more transportation-dependent stages are largely disrupted. Disruptions caused by the epidemic are transmitted across the supply chain. Food Policy Available online 16 March 2021, Unscrambling U.S. Egg Supply Chains amid COVID-19. Highlights This article investigates how the shift from food-away-from-home and towards food-at-home at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic affected the U.S. egg industry.
Retail and farm-gate prices for table eggs increased by approximately 141% and 182%, while prices for breaking stock eggs fell by 67%. Regulatory change by the FDA rapidly pushed retail, farm-gate, and breaking stock prices towards their long-run pre-pandemic equilibrium dynamics. The pandemic reduced premiums for credence attributes, including cage-free, vegetarian-fed, and organic eggs, by as much as 34%, and premiums did not fully recover following the return to more ”normal” price dynamics.

As the world grapples with rolling out various vaccines for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, there are still many unknowns.
For how long will a vaccine be effective? How effective will vaccines be against new strains? How optimal can we make future vaccines? There are questions also over what future research will reveal about the virus. How does it affect people differently?

Susceptibility of turkeys, chickens and chicken embryos to SARS-CoV-2 virus Susceptibility of turkeys, chickens and chicken embryos to SARS-CoV-2 virus was evaluated by experiment inoculation.
Turkeys and chickens were inoculated using a combination of intranasal, oral and ocular routes. Both turkeys and chickens did not develop clinical disease or antibodies to the virus following inoculation. Viral RNA was not detected in oral and cloacal swabs and in tissues using quantitative real-time RT-PCR. In addition, chicken embryos were inoculated using the yolk sac, intravenous, chorioallantoic membrane and allantoic cavity routes did not support replication of the virus.

THE GUARDIAN 31/08/20 Hundreds of thousands of chickens to be culled after Covid disruption About half of staff at poultry plant in Norfolk have had to self-isolate after 75 tested positive for coronavirus. At least 400,000 chickens are being culled in the UK as Covid-19 infections disrupt slaughterhouse routines.
About 300,000 birds are due to be culled in England and 110,000 have been culled in Scotland. Chickens that cannot be slaughtered for food are usually gassed with CO2 and their bodies rendered for fat and other animal byproducts. They do not enter the food chain. The UK rears and slaughters about 20 million birds a week, according to the British Poultry Council (BPC). About 95% are chickens and the majority are processed through a few large slaughterhouses, each with a capacity of about 2 million birds a week.
Millions of US farm animals were culled on-farm earlier this summer after the closure of meat plants because of coronavirus outbreaks among staff that cut the country’s slaughtering capacity for cows and pigs by 25% and 40% respectively.

SCI. 26/08/20 Challenges to the Poultry Industry: Current Perspectives and Strategic Future After the COVID-19 Outbreak. Introduction Disease control, high production, product quality, and reasonable production costs have been the recent main goals of the poultry industry.
Hence, meeting per capita consumption and welfare to humans necessitates continuous efficient and goal-oriented healthcare to control disease spread and decrease the application of antibiotics (1). These endeavors will include the launch of programs to control infectious diseases, face the constant changes in political and social conditions, address consumers' perceptions about animal welfare, and ensure the safety and security of foods and environmental defense issues. In addition, the continuous increase in the costs of feedstuffs—and thus feeds and foods—remain prominent issues (2). The occurrence of unanticipated and new diseases and new legislation in several countries will also remain essential issues.

Brazilian livestock producers have been using their stocks since March, but supply could be a problem in the second half of 2020. The Brazilian National Union of the Industry for Animal Health Products (Sindan) has warned that producers might be dealing with a lack of veterinary medicines in the second half of this year, despite the fact that they have been operating normally during the first few months of the pandemic. Salani: “This scenario should force prices of veterinary medicines to realign in the second half of the year.” Photo: Hans Prinsen Sindan held a survey among its associated members in June, 52,2% of whom reported difficulties on importing active ingredients during the pandemic. They also expect prices to rise in the upcoming months because a large part of the ingredients are imported.

Tuesday, August 18th 2020 - 08:54 UTC Full article The protocol rules which are also to be applied in other countries target “zero risk”. However there are some differences on the definition of “zero risk” Following China's claims to have found traces of the new coronavirus in chicken wings from Brazil, the two countries are in negotiations to establish a protocol to prevent contamination of Covid-19 in slaughterhouses that export to the Asian largest economy. This followed an incident in June when a new outbreak of the virus appeared in Beijing, resulting in the suspension of imports from six Brazilian plants, and a seventh unit was also banned by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture. The protocol rules which are also to be applied in other countries target “zero risk”. FOOD SAFETY NEWS 15/08/20 Brazil responds to Coronavirus positive chicken claims.
A government agency, industry association and the affected company in Brazil have responded to Chinese claims that a chicken wing sample has tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. Health authorities in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, noted the detection of coronavirus nucleic acid on the surface of a frozen chicken wing sample from a batch imported from Brazil. Other samples from this batch were collected, analyzed and results were negative. Shenzhen officials reported that everyone who handled or came into contact with the material tested negative for COVID-19. China has also found traces of the virus on the packaging of imported shrimp from Ecuador. The National Chicken Council reaffirmed the safety of poultry products following reports of chicken wings from Brazil testing positive for coronavirus.

The importance of the CoV, infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) as a major pathogen in chickens of all ages and types is well known, but less is known about CoVs found in other avian species and how they might relate to CoVs in mammals.

Currently quarantine is the only means of attempting to contain the virus. News reports of cruise ships becoming massive isolation wards has undoubtedly put fear in many vacationers to cancel or postpone travel until the situation begins to improve. China has embarked on the world’s first public health experiment of this magnitude by closing off entire cities and regions to keep the outbreak localised, thereby affecting millions of people.
