Laos has announced two more bird flu outbreaks in two farms in Vientiane capital, Lao newspaper Vientiane Times reported Tuesday.
Recent testing results have shown that samples from dead fowls at the two farms in Xaythany district were positive to bird flu virus strain H5, the paper said.
Last week, the Lao government announced a bird flu outbreak which killed more than 2,000 fowls in a farm about 25 km south of Vientiane.
To prevent the widespread of the disease, Laos has culled some 19,000 poultry at the affected farms.
The country has also placed a temporary ban on sales of poultry meat at markets and restaurants, established quarantine checkpoints, monitored transports of fowls, and detoxificated farms.
