The Antipolo City local government launched on Sunday a random sampling collection of its chickens, ducks, and turkeys as it ramps up its efforts to prevent the entry of the avian Influenza virus or bird flu in the city,according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

In a Facebook post, Antipolo City Spokesperson Jun Ynares said that personnel from the City Veterinary Office (CVO) went to different barangays to conduct the collection.
