The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development wants 14 vulnerable provinces and cities to take stronger action against the spread of the blue-ear disease among pigs.

They are Ha Noi and Hai Phong and Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Thai Nguyen, Phu Tho, Vinh Phuc, Hoa Binh, Hai Duong, Hung Yen, Thai Binh, Ha Nam, Nam Dinh, and Ninh Binh Provinces.

The epidemic has become widespread and threatens to spread rapidly, but prevention efforts are slack in some provinces, it added.

Recently the disease broke out at a large pig breeding centre in Hoa Binh, which was a main source of supply of piglets for the entire province. In response, Hoa Binh authorities asked the ministry to supply 20,000 vaccines as well as antiseptics and equipment.
