Bird flu panic grips Vietnam's provinces
As one travels through various cities and towns of Vietnam these days, you can see the travellers and visitors wearing masks as a safeguard against bird flu which is spreading and suspected to become an epidemic.

The advisories have been issued to the tourists and localities have been asked to supervise poultry farms to detect the outbreaks and tackle them promptly and effectively to prevent the spread of the avian flu.

It is being said the new types of avian flu have been detected via poultry trading from the neighbouring countries. The authorities have mounted pressure to prevent poultry smuggling and strictly deal with it.

Three provinces are reported to be badly affected and culling process of the birds has been under taken. The animal health units have put on high alert to mitigate the risk of bird flu epidemic on the anvil. Both the ducks and hens are being closely monitored for the flu virus detection.

During my visit to Ha Long, I saw the people and workers wearing medical masks and taking precaution to prevent the spread of virus. I was advised the same and I took it seriously and for the next few days, I will be taking all the precautions so as not to catch the flu.
