H5N1 Re-emerges in Southern Vietnam
December 19, 2006
On December 6 the disease broke out in Ca Mau’s Tran Van Thoi district, killing 2,520 chicks and ducklings, all of which later positive for the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu virus.
The next day five duck flocks took ill in Hoa Binh district in Bac Lieu. Some 3,500 ducklings died, all of which too tested positive for H5N1.
The above comments describe the re-emergence of H5N1 in southern Vietnam. This outbreak follows reports of the Qinghai strain of H5N1 in South Korea. Earlier this season H5N1 was reported in Thailand, which included the Fujian strain of H5N1.
More information on the strain of H5N1 in Vietnam would be useful.
