    HANOI: More than 137,000 poultry across 13 provinces and cities of Vietnam have been culled so far this year in an attempt to prevent bird flu outbreaks, the country's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said on Friday (March 6).

    In the past two months the country has reported a total of 43 bird flu outbreaks, among which 38 were A/H5N6 and five were A/H5N1, the ministry reported on Thursday.

    All outbreaks occur in farms with unvaccinated poultry flocks, especially in those that shifted from pigs to poultry.

    Local authorities had entire infected flocks culled, disinfected the areas and set up temporary quarantine stations to prevent the widespread of the outbreak.

    Besides, Vietnam has culled 19,472 pigs since early 2020 as part of the efforts to contain the African swine fever outbreak...
