Shortly after the disease appeared, authorities of the affected localities and the centres of support services for agricultural development in Tran Yen district and Yen Bai city have arrived at the sites to examine the situation, collect samples for testing, and cull poultry in the influenza-hit areas.

Authorities have provided guidance on disease prevention and control measures, along with 60 litres of disinfectant. They have also increased monitoring poultry farming households in the communes with the outbreaks.

Local resources have been mobilised to take urgent solutions to stamp out A/H5N6, including using lime powder or chemicals to disinfect related areas, strictly controlling the transportation of poultry and poultry products to and from the disease hotbeds, and boosting the examination and monitoring of poultry and related product trading and slaughter.

Relevant agencies have disinfected markets and slaughterhouses while reviewing the numbers of poultry farming households and fowls subject to vaccination in the affected hamlets and communes so as to make vaccination plans.

Thanks to swift and effective anti-influenza measures, the A/H5N6 virus hasn’t been reported in any new areas since February 10.
