The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Animal Health Department in Vietnam has announced the re-emergence of bird flu in the central Quang Tri Province after thousands of poultry were reportedly affected.
More than 2,200 affected ducks in Hai Lang District’s Hai Thien Commune and Gio Linh District’s Gio Linh Town were culled. In the northern Phu Tho Province, nearly 1,500 poultry in Ha Hoa District’s Chinh Cong Commune died of the flu. Two people who were allegedly affected with symptoms of fever,were taken to the provincial hospital.
Local authorities culled the affected poultry, sprayed chemicals and set up three quarantine booths to minimise the disease’s spread.
