A foot-and-mouth epidemic has broken out in 39 provinces, affecting more than 150,000 head of cattle. More than 45,000 animals have died or been destroyed, including over 5,000 buffalos, 938 cows, 37,760 pigs and 329 goats.

These figures were from the report delivered by the Animal Health Department at a meeting in Hanoi on June 24 to sum up the prevention of the disease.

The Animal Health Department ha asked provinces to work out programmes to prevent the disease, organize vaccinations for 2011, and use the correct vaccines. The aim is to contain foot-and-mouth disease in 2015.
