Samples were collected from various avian species across Kerala, Haryana and Odisha, India between 2018-2020. All samples were tested for the presence of NDV (Newcastle disease virus) using RT-PCR based on the matrix gene (M) of the virus. Samples positive for the M gene were further tested with F gene primers to determine the pathotype of NDV. In addition, pools from all samples (five samples to a pool) from the three centers were tested for avian influenza virus (AIV) followed by testing of individual samples from positive pools.
