Bird flu outbreak in Pakistan zoo

Viral News: Bird Flu

Feb 20, 2007
The zoo in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, has been closed temporarily after tests confirmed an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu.
Twenty-four birds of different types have died at the zoo since 12 February and authorities have been vaccinating birds against avian flu.
Earlier this month the virus was found in chickens in nearby Rawalpindi.
Tests are also being carried out on staff who work at the zoo, particularly those in close contact with the birds.
