  • Chinese vaccine suspected to be the source of avian influenza virus subclade 2.3.2 in Indonesia

    Chinese vaccine allegedly spreads avian influenza

    Saturday, 22 December 2012

    REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, YOGYAKARTA - Vaccine produced by home industry in China is suspected to be the source of avian influenza virus subclade 2.3.2 that attacks poultry in Indonesia.

    "We think that stockbreeding in Indonesia took the vaccine of avian influenza clade 2.3.2 from China. It may be bought by Vietnam, then it was sold to Indonesia," Coordinator of Local Disease Control Center (LDCC) at Department of Agriculture in Yogyakarta, Tri Wahana, said on Friday.

    Wahana hopes government will investigate the perpetrators who brought the vaccine to Indonesia. He mentioned that Vietnam had depopulated millions of poultry. "The army there did it and they did it quickly," he said.
