HA NOI (VNS)— The Health Ministry's General Department of Preventive Medicine announced on Thursday that individuals returning from China should be monitored after a new case of avian influenza was reported.
Tran Dac Phu, head of the department, said that human, poultry and goods should have their temperatures checked before entering Viet Nam.
China confirmed last month it had seen 185 cases of human H7N9 virus with 47 deaths.
Usually, Viet Nam records two or three incidences a year, but in the first two months of this year alone, there have been two fatalities. — VNS
