Vietnam : New type of A/H5N1 appears in some localities

Via VOV News :

" The Department of Animal Health under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) said a new type of A/H5N1 has been detected in the northern, central and highland provinces of Vietnam after their domestic fowls were vaccinated.

The vaccines imported from China are now not effective with this new type of virus, but can be used to treat the old type in the southern region of Vietnam.

The Prime Minister has approved MARD’s proposal to end the first phase of vaccination against bird flu.

However, MARD has asked local authorities to actively detect new bird flu outbreaks in their areas and take effective measures to prevent it from spreading."
