The Ministry of Health reported no cases of human infection with the virus that led to the death of bird pets at the bird market in Al-Rai area in the recent days, a senior official said Tuesday.

"There is no evidence that the mysterious bird-killing virus could communicate to humans," Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry Dr. Majedah Al-Gattan told KUNA shortly after an interagency campaign to annihilate the birds at the market.

"As a precaution, the Ministry is working closely with the Ministry of Interior, the Public Authority of Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources, and Kuwait Municipality to get rid of the birds at Al-Rai marketplace," she affirmed.

"Though there is no evidence linking the virus to humans, the Ministry of Health alerted all hospitals and the relevant departments to keep watch and brace for any emergency in the future," Al-Gattan added.

She asked everybody to keep away from birds or animals, particularly the dead ones, and report to the health departments on any cases of mass deaths among birds, adding that the Ministry was in contact with relevant international organization to follow up the situation.
