Vietnam : Officials record bird flu death

Via Stuff :

" Vietnamese officials say they've recorded the country's first human bird flu death in nearly two years, while more cases of the H5N1 virus have recently popped up elsewhere.

Dang Thi Thanh of southern Kien Giang province's health department says test results confirm that an 18-year-old man died of the disease Monday after being hospitalised a day earlier.

She says the man worked at a duck farm in neighboring Can Tho City when he fell sick with a high fever and breathing problems. His house has been disinfected and those who were in contact with him remain under surveillance."
