NAM DINH (VNS) — The northern Nam Dinh Province's Animal Health Sub-Department confirmed yesterday that a bird flu outbreak has been reported in Giao Thuy District.

The outbreak was spotted at a farm in Giao Ha Commune, where 105 out of 500 poultry had unusual deaths last Tuesday, according to Ninh Van Hieu, head of the Sub-Department.

The poultry birds were culled after tests run by the local authorities showed that they were infected with the A/H5N1 virus.

The provincial Animal Health Sub-Department has allocated 60,000 doses of vaccines to Giao Ha Commune and other surrounding localities as part of measures to combat the disease.—VNS
