The Vietnam's national committee on bird flu prevention and control said here on Tuesday that bird flu has reappeared in two provinces of Vietnam with nearly 4,000 poultry infected with the disease.

The announcement was made at a regular meeting of the committee to review its tasks in dealing with the bird flu disease.

In the country's Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau, there have been 3,000 chickens, ducks and swans found infected with bird flu in two districts of the province.

In the central Ha Tinh province, about 658 chickens and ducks have acquired the H5N1 virus and become ill or died. All these poultry have not been injected with vaccines, according to the committee.

The committee said local authorities are currently adopting measures to prevent the spread of the disease.
