Saudi Food and Drug Authority announced today a temporary ban on the import of certain types of fish from the regions of Mashonaland and Midlands in the State of Zimbabwe because of the outbreak of Epizootic Ulcerative Syndrome, and the import of poultry meat, eggs and their products from Bekes province in Hungary due to the spread of avian influenza of high virulence.



The Authority said in a press statement reported by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), that the reports of World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), included the outbreaks of Epizootic Ulcerative Syndrome in Tilapia and Catfish fishes and finned fish-type of Barbus paludinosus and straight fin fish in the regions of “Mashonaland” and “Midlands” in Zimbabwe, and therefore the Authority issued a decision to impose a temporary ban on the import of such fish from those two regions.



The Authority pointed that the immediate notification issued by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reported the emergence of the avian flu disease of high virulence from type H5N1 in Bekes province in Hungary, and therefore, the Authority issued a decision to impose a temporary ban on the import of poultry meat, eggs and their products from that province.
