There is no evidence that properly cooked poultry or eggs can be a source of infection for bird flu viruses. Although it is safe to eat poultry and eggs but make sure the following:
- Make sure outside skin of chicken does not come in contact with the meat.
- Wash the meat properly before cooking.
- Cook meat at 70 degrees centigrade and ensure that all the juices run clear.
- Avoid semi- cooked or raw eggs.
- Avoid contact with any sort of secretion from chicken and in case of contact wash your hands immediately with soap.
- Make sure that utensils and cutting boards are washed properly after use.
