Southern Vietnam city continues ban on poultry farming
posted by admin on 15/08/06

Fifty bird-flu infected fowl were found in Mekong Delta provinces.

Ho Chi Minh City authorities have instructed localities to keep halting poultry farming until Feb 2007 for fear of a renewed round of human bird flu outbreaks.

Recently, over fifty bird-flu infected fowl were found in Mekong Delta provinces such as Ben Tre, Tien Giang, and Long An, prompting authorities to keep its ban on both chicken and duck breeding.

Earlier, Vietnam decided to resume chicken farming while the duck ban remained in place at the beginning of August.

The city People’s Committee is urging its local Preventive Health Departments to tighten supervision on both poultry and cattle due to possible bird-flu, foot-and-mouth and type-A H5N1 flu outbreaks on humans.

City instructions have also restricted the transport and purchase of cattle infected with foot-and-mouth disease to prevent its spread, and called for the immediate register of newly infected cases.

The measures also include tightening inspections at animal checkpoints and vaccinations of cattle stocks, especially in areas with low inoculation rates and key livestock farms.

In case of new outbreaks, local authorities have received instructions on quickly localizing and controlling the sites.
