Landscape busiest day in market swine Ba Ren (Ren Ba village, a commune of Xuan Que, Que Son) also fall into the tedious hours, mild understand by volume sellers and buyers at the margins.

Market neighborhood filled container bamboo pig baskets stacked in high piles. On the way concrete is on the market only four baskets piglets, located about 20 pigs in baskets scolded. Some women also sat quietly selling pork. Tran Thi Hong, a small business selling pork varieties, said: "Before, every day of pig on market fluctuations over the thousands of children, the day is also very much only about 300 pigs on the same market. Number of people to purchase less permanently, markets only work in moderation. "

Even after many herd information in the commune of Binh Dao suddenly become infected, die with the same symptoms stop eating, body flushed ..., Thang Binh district leaders have asked relevant government and social Binh Dao quickly deploy the same series of strong measures to control, extinguish the epidemic. In addition to establishing key points to tight control block the transport of pigs from the service, trade ban, slaughter and consumption of pork and pork products are also immediately proclaimed. Thanks to the aggressive forces of the local branch of shock and youth social scene rampant pork sold in markets Tea threats and some other places have been completely flattened. In particular, due emphasis to promote advocacy, awareness raising among the population, the situation properly dispose of dead pigs in Binh Dao does not happen as the first outbreak.

At noon yesterday (12-5), speaking with reporters in Quang Nam, Nguyen Thanh Nam - Vice Director Chi Quang Nam Department of Animal Health said in addition to sending forces Binh Dao technical support veterinary officials and government social prevention and control units for emergency hospital has spent much of Thang Binh engines and pumps more than 1,200 liters of chemicals Benkocid to implement sanitation work regularly pens, pepper spray independent, large-scale disinfection to urgently curb the spread of the virus.
