Vietnam : Another bird flu case reported in Vietnam

Via Saigon Daily :

" Dr. Tran Ngoc Huu, President of the Pasteur Institute in Ho Chi Minh City, on March 7 confirmed that yet another case of bird flu had been reported in Vietnam, bringing the total tally to four patients with two having succumbed to the disease, since the beginning of this year.

On March 5, doctors from the General Hospital in Dak Lak Province transferred a 32-year-old local resident man to the Tropical Disease Hospital in HCMC, who they believed was suffering from the H5N1 bird flu virus.

The Tropical Disease Hospital in the city later reported that the patient was suffering from serious pneumonia and needed to be put under a respirator, while tests conducted on him by the Pasteur Institute proved positive for the bird flu virus.

It is still a mystery as to how the man caught the infection in the first place."
