Vietnam : Probe continues into alleged cover-up of bird flu outbreaks

Via Focus Taiwan :

" Prosecutors questioned two agriculture officials Wednesday as part of an investigation into an alleged cover-up of recent outbreaks of avian flu in central and southern Taiwan.

The two officials are both from the Animal Health Research Institute (AHRI), which confirmed the outbreaks of a highly pathogenic strain of the H5N2 virus in Changhua and Tainan after a second meeting of experts held March 1.

Prosecutors said they will investigate whether the results of laboratory tests conducted by the AHRI meet the criteria of "highly pathogenic" bird flu set by the World Organization for Animal Health."
