The government in Vietnam has met its goal of' basically' containing bird flu by the end of February 2004. According to a statement by Vietnam's agriculture ministry in early March, no new outbreaks of the virus have been reported for four successive days. Both the United Nations and the World Health Organization have criticized the statement, warning of the risk of prematurely lifting quarantine restrictions. The Vietnamese government has been criticism at home by poultry farmers, whose livelihoods have been wrecked by the outbreak.
