QUANG NGAI (VNS)— Over 1,800 ducks were found to be infected with the A/H5N1 virus on a farm in Pho Cuong Commune in central Quang Ngai Province's Duc Pho District, head of Quang Ngai Province's Veterinarian Department, Nguyen Dinh Tuan said yesterday.

"We sent medical wastes to be tested as soon as 400 ducks had died at the farm. The ducks at the poultry farm were totally culled after medical samples tested positive for the A/H5N1virus," Tuan said.

The department injected bird flu vaccine and sprayed chemicals at the farm, while decontamination procedures were undertaken at the other farms in the commune. — VNS
