Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Dr. Hannah Bissiw says Ghanaians should feel free and consume chicken and eggs amidst the bird flu scare.

She has indicated that government has put in place adequate measures to stop if from spreading.

“I’m assuring the public to feel free and consume chicken and eggs because we have put measures in place to prevent further escalation.

“Myself I have taken chicken and eggs today and so each and every one should feel free and consume them since it will not harm them” she said on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen on Thursday.
