A drill to prevent H7N9 avian flu will be held by the municipal Health Department, the Agriculture and Rural Development department and the People’s Committee of Thuong Tin District (Hanoi) on March 13.

The move aims to improve the abilities of health officials in dealing with A/H7N9 avian flu, especially with the disease expanding in China and likely to spread to Vietnam. Besides H7N9 avian flu prevention, the meeting also discussed measures tackling other diseases.
