The Hanoi Health Department on Wednesday said the blue ear disease in the city has been basically contained.


No new cases were reported in the past ten days, the department said, adding sick pigs in Gia Lam, Dong Anh, Thuong Tin and Me Linh Districts were being treated and recovering, it said.


However, the climatic conditions were still "complicated" with more hot spells predicted in the coming months, so livestock farmers need to keep their pigs clean and get them vaccinated, the department noted.


It also advised farmers to buy pigs for breeding from reliable suppliers certified by animal health agencies and quarantine them for at least 21 days before mixing them with older stock.
