Thousands of chickens and ducks dead due to bird flu in Can Duoc district, Vietnam

Bird Flu

An H5N1 bird flu outbreak has hit Vietnam’s southern Long An province, killing thousands of chicken and ducks in the Long Son commune, Can Duoc district.

According to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the H5N1 virus hit the farms owned by two families in the commune. One of the families lost about 3,600 ducks.

Local government agencies had to cull sick birds, as well as isolate and disinfect areas hit by the disease, tighten control of fowl transport in the affected areas and intensify bird flu vaccination.

Vietnam, however, has no report of new human cases of H5N1 infection since 2014, according to the country’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
