font size    

Foot-and-mouth disease has stricken one more province of Vietnam, raising the number of its affected localities to 39, according to a local animal health agency on Monday.

The latest disease outbreaks were detected in northern Bac Giang province last week, said the Department of Animal Health under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

As of Monday, 13 out of 39 affected localities, including Cao Bang, Bac Can, Ha Giang, Thai Nguyen, Phu Tho, Yen Bai, Hai Duong and Lai Chau in the northern region; Nghe An and Da Nang in the central region; and Gia Lai, Dac Lac and Lam Dong in the central highlands region, have declared foot-and-mouth outbreaks in their territories.

Vietnam is intensifying control over cattle transport and trade in affected areas, and surveillance of the disease and vaccination of healthy animals, the department said.

The disease has spread to 447 communes in the 39 localities, hitting nearly 15,500 bulls and buffaloes, and about 18,300 pigs, the department said, noting that nearly 12,000 pigs, and roughly 450 buffalos and bulls have either died or been culled due to the outbreaks.
