Foot & Mouth Spreading in Viet Nam

12/02/2009 09:36:28

Viet Nam is already dealing with wide spread avian influenza outbreaks, and has now confirmed foot and mouth in 5 provinces. The government blames the outbreak on charitable donations, from inexperienced buyers, who are giving the poor of Vietnam diseased animals, prompting to minister Diep Kinh Tan to state: ’You grant the poor 10 cows, but your 10 cows infect 300 cows,’ Tan said. ’That means you are hurting people.’

Foot and mouth is a highly-contagious animal disease that primarily affects cattle and has previously led to mass culling in Europe & China.
