Bird flu ravages central Vietnam province

An outbreak of bird flu is sweeping through the central province of Quang Nam, felling fowls and forcing authorities to cull a further 26,660 birds.

They destroyed 7,000 eggs and 1,250 ducks Monday after finding signs of the H5N1 virus that causes the disease.

Seven communes in four districts – Nui Thanh, Thang Binh, Dai Loc and Tien Phuoc – have been affected.

Nguyen Ngoc Quang, vice chairman of the Quang Nam People’s Committee, instructed local authorities to focus on disinfecting affected areas and containing the spread of the disease.

Until mid-March only Nui Thanh had reported outbreaks.
