Vietnam has, at last, called in the assistance of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to advise on preventing the spread of the disease, in the wake of twelve deaths in the past four weeks and one million birds having been culled. 200,000 ducks are to be culled this coming weekend.
Vietnam declared itself free of the infection last year, to the dispelasure of the FAO and WHO. Let's hope they can assist in resolving the latest problem. Vietnam, as I know well, is a lovely country, but it's government is both secretive and paranoid.
