First Vietnam Bird Flu Death Since 2005

June 16, 2007

HANOI, Vietnam -- Vietnam confirmed its first human death from bird flu since 2005, as the latest flare-up of the virus ravaged poultry stocks, official media said Saturday.
The death brought the country's toll to 43. Vietnam had not reported a human bird flu death since November 2005, though four other people were recently infected. Two have fully recovered.
A government reported cited by the online newspaper Vietnamnet said bird flu outbreaks in poultry have been reported in 18 provinces since early May. The outbreak has killed or forced the slaughter of nearly 200,000 birds, nearly all ducks.
