Vietnam appeals for bird flu help

Topics: Health Issues

Vietnam has appealed to the United Nations for help in combating a recent outbreak of bird flu.

In the past four weeks, 12 (13) have died and more than a million poultry birds have been culled. The government is inviting the Food and Agriculture Organisation and the World Health Organisation to send experts to help prevent the spread of the disease.  Last year, the UN agencies had expressed their displeasure when the Vietnamese authorities declared the country free of bird flu against their advice.
