Bird flu back in Vietnam
Bird flu has reared its head again in 2 Mekong Delta provinces, Bac Lieu and Ca Mau, after over one year during which Vietnam managed to
keep the epidemic out. No new cases were reported in the last 13 months in Vietnam while some 140 million poultry were vaccinated against H5N1. The current cool weather is an ally for the virus. And the dead birds might not have been vaccinated...


At a conference held on 19 Dec 2006 by the National Steering Committee on Bird Flu Control, Cao Duc Phat, Minister of Agriculture
and Rural Development and the committee`s head, slammed the 2 provincial administrations for negligence and delay in discovering the outbreaks which had occurred at the start of December [2006].

On 6 Dec 2006 the disease broke out in Ca Mau`s Tran Van Thoi district, killing 2520 chicks and ducklings, all of which later [found] positive for the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu virus.

The next day 5 duck flocks took ill in Hoa Binh district in Bac Lieu. Some 3500 ducklings died, all of which too tested positive for H5N1.

The committee claimed the dead birds had not been vaccinated because they had been hatched illegally.

There is a real threat now of the disease spreading to other places since the farmers threw away the birds` carcasses before the outbreak
came to light.

Phat instructed the 2 provinces to quickly quarantine and sterilize their infected areas, and others to maintain extreme vigilance.

He also directed local agencies to find out the cause of the outbreaks since there were no reports of recurrence in areas neighboring the 2 provinces.

If any new infections occurred, Phat warned, the local administrations would be held responsible.

Leishmania spp. in Bats from an Area Endemic for Visceral Leishmaniasismembers
The multihost parasites Leishmania spp. infect a broad range of wild mammalian species including bats. Several species of bats have adapted to a variety of food resources and shelters in urban areas. This study aimed to detect Leishmania spp. DNA in bats present in forest fragments located in metropolitan areas endemic for leishmaniasis in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul (MS), Brazil. Which role do these animals play in leishmaniasis?
