Vietnam reports avian influenza outbreaks in southern poultry farms

21 December, 2004

About 4,000 chickens have either died or or been culled in southern Vietnam after showing symptoms similar to avian influenza, many of them found to have contracted the virus strain of H5.
The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) handed over equipment worth 150,000 USD to help prevent avian influenza in 12 southern localities. Danida has donated a total sum of 300,000 USD to 31 provinces and cities under the programme to support Viet Nam's agricultural sector.
