The Department of Animal Health under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development yesterday reported that the A/H5N6 avian flu was found at a household farm from March 9-17, leading to the culling of 200 sick and dead fowls in Trieu Phong district.
The fowls haven’t been vaccinated. So far, Vietnam has recorded four A/H5N1 outbreaks in nine households in four provinces and two A/H5N6 outbreaks in two provinces in the last 21 days.
According to the Department, Vietnam is at high risks of infection of new avian flu virus strains, such as A/H7N9, A/H5N2, and A/H5N8 via illegal transport and consumption of poultry, particularly in the northern border provinces.
