New Bird Flu & Foot and Mouth Outbreaks in Viet Nam

18/02/2009 16:07:19

Bird flu has spread to two new communes in Viet Nam: Nguyen Viet Khai and Viet Thang in the southernmost Ca Mau Province, on Saturday. Local authorities culled all affected poultry to control the virus. Bird flu has re-emerged in seven provinces in total in Viet Nam: Ca Mau, Soc Trang, Nghe An, Hau Giang, Quang Ninh, Quang Tri and Bac Ninh, leading to the culling of thousands of contaminated poultry.

Meanwhile, in northern Hoa Binh Province, foot-and-mouth disease continued to affect cattle in the province with five cows and buffaloes testing positive in the Ba Khan commune. Local authorities have stepped in to vaccinate all cows and buffaloes in surrounding communes but the animal health department warned that foot-and-mouth disease could continue to spread if there was not strict supervision over the transport of cattle.
