Vietnam doesn't plan total cull

VietNam News reports the national bird flu prevention plan of the ministry of agriculture and rural development.

Hoang Kim Giao, deputy head of MARD's Animal Husbandry Department, said that culling of all poultry would not ensure safety since wild birds could carry the avian flu virus.

It could, on the other hand, pollute the environment and water resources, and put a massive financial burden on the Government in way of compensating farmers, he added.

For preventing another outbreak, the ministry has decided to destroy all poultry raised in infected areas, cordon off such areas and spray disinfectants on poultry farms.
