HÀ NỘI – Three more avian flu outbreaks have been recorded in the Central Highlands provinces of Đắk Lắk and Đắk Nông, according to the Department of Animal Health under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

A/H5N1 avian flu outbreaks were found at two farms in Ea Rốp and Ea Tmốt communes in Ea Súp District in Đắk Lắk Province, with more than 2,200 ducks culled.

Another was detected at four farms in Đức  Xuyên Commune, Krông Nô district, Đắk Nông Province on May 3, leading to 250 poultry and 1,800 ducks being destroyed.

So far, Việt  Nam has discovered seven A/H5N1 outbreaks in 11 farms in five provinces of Cao Bằng, Vĩnh Long, Quảng  Ninh, Đắk Lắk and Đắk Nông in the last three weeks.

The department also warned of high risk of infection of new avian flu virus strains, such as A/H7N9, A/H5N2, and A/H5N8 to Việt  Nam via illegal transport of poultry, particularly in northern border provinces and other provinces prone to poultry smuggling.

It urged localities to be proactive in preventing avian influenza and to strengthen their supervision to detect and handle outbreaks. – VNS
