    So, I fail to understand why not the Philippines, and why not New Guinea or Singapore? China has it. Japan, Korea...
    Everywhere in the region but there? Makes no sense.

    Chief of Banyuresmi, Wawan Ridwan said the poultries had suddenly died without any sign of sickness, that people took it as a common death.

    For preventing any possible disease transmission to human, Livestock Service is now socializing the culling plan with locals in Kampung Warung.

    Don't confirmed yet, but it would not be the first time for H5N1 to make an appearance in Engand.

    Quote from www.sundaymercury.net
    HORRIFIED bird lovers demanded an urgent investigation last night after the mystery deaths of SIXTEEN swans in just six weeks.
    The 'unprecedented' number of fatalities has wiped out around 30 per cent of the population along the River Avon in Stratford-upon-Avon.
    Now wildlife experts are calling for immediate tests on the dead bodies - after raising fears that Bird Flu may be responsible.

    Cambodia-WHO Update

    http://www.who.int/csr/don/2011_02_25/en/index.html

    It's just influenza, but the case fatality ratio is not in our favor, and that is why we study it.

    Quote from http://www.who.int
    A 19-year-old female, from Takong village, Ta Kong commune, Malay district, Banteay Meanchey Province, developed symptoms on early hours of 5 February, was admitted to a private clinic on 9 February, referred to a hospital on 12 February, and died on 12 February without avian influenza being considered as a diagnosis. She had travelled from her home with her husband, her 11-month old son, her mother in law and her sister in law to Rokar Chor village, Bantey Chakrey commune, Prash Sdach district, Prey Veng Province on 3 January. She had multiple exposures to sick and dead poultry between the second half of January and early February. A blood specimen collected at hospital on 12 February was transferred to Institut Pasteur du Cambodge on 22 February and tested positive by (polymerase chain reaction) PCR.

    The 11-month-old son developed symptoms on 5 February, was admitted to hospital 15 February and died on 17 February. He also had multiple exposures to sick and dead poultry in the same time frame. The presence of H5N1 virus in nasopharyngeal specimens was confirmed by Institut Pasteur du Cambodge, the National Influenza Centre on 20 February. Of the 13 cases of human H5N1 virus infection confirmed since 2005 in Cambodia, 11 have been fatal.
