Over the last two months, The Ministry of Health and livestock has prohibited the imports of poultry, eggs and derived products from Cameroon, since the announcement in this country of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in poultry flocks.
A situation in CAR that creates scarcity of those products, and resulted in extremely high prices on markets.
Henceforth, pallet of eggs in Bangui costs more than 7,500 CFAF.
And usual sidewalk vendors of eggs have disappeared in the capital.
A crisis that highlights CAR is not food self-sufficient, forcing it to depend on food imports from Cameroon.
