Bird Flu :: Avian bird flu outbreak in Vietnam

Bird flu has popped up again in chickens and ducks in Vietnam and Asian countries are scrambling to limit its spread. Vietnam has ordered a mass slaughter of chickens and ducks in two Mekong Delta provinces where bird flu outbreaks were confirmed this week.

“The situation is alarming,” said Hoang Van Nam, director of the Epidemic Unit under Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Thousands of chickens and ducks in the affected areas have been slaughtered as authorities try to limit the spread of the virus, which has killed hundreds of millions of chickens and at least 42 people in Vietnam since 2004.
