The mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri ordered the closure of the Park to the public Villa Pamphili, in the part where the small lake is located Giglio. The measure followed a specific request from the prevention department of the Asl Rm3, after the Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute of Rome on November 26 had communicated a positivity for bird flu right in the poultry species present in the pond.
In a post Gualtieri reports that “it is a precautionary measure following the death of a swan in the pond from bird flu. For the next 10 days, therefore, we will not be able to access that area of the park. But this will serve to make further investigations and, above all, to prevent the virus from spreading mechanically. The health of citizens is a priority for us. I hope to be able to return this precious and unique place of our city to the Romans as soon as possible ”. And he underlined that he signed with “great regret” because it is “a place that is particularly dear to me and that I love to go to with my family.
“The partial closure of the Park – declared the Councilor for the Environment Sabrina Alfonsi – was arranged as a precaution for a period of 10 days or in any case for the time necessary to carry out the necessary checks to exclude any further spread of the virus to the outside by visitors and to allow the correct performance of further interventions deemed necessary. It should be noted that the biological risk is limited to the sole possibility of mechanically transmitting the virus, hence the reasons for the measure adopted today, while there are no risks for the consumption of poultry meat and eggs ”, concluded Alfonsi.
