Chinese H5N1 chickens smuggled into Vietnam
Police in Vietnam intercepted H5N1 contaminated chickens being imported illegally into Vietnam. This blog believes that China must do more to curb the spread of H5N1 by dealing with the movement of infected poultry across international borders. Secondly, China should crack down on the use of drugs in animal feed which is assisting in building up H5N1 drug resistance.
