The affected persons are staff of Adda-Rogo poultry farms where the outbreak was reported, the witness, who is one of the affected persons, said Friday.
The 62-year-old, who also doubles as the farm Manager, Muhammed Hassan, said they have been evacuating dead birds without protective gowns, not until veterinary officials who visited warned them of the dangers.
