Rising Number of Incidents

A 31 year old man has died in of bird flu in Indonesia, bringing their death toll there to 91. It is yet unclear if the man contracted the disease by coming into contact with sick fowl or by another means.

Meanwhile, outbreaks of bird flu in fowl are now occurring on a farm in Llanfihangl Glyn Myfyr in North Wales, and in Suffolk, England.

Governments world wide continue vigilance in keeping track of outbreaks of bird flu in fowl, human illness and death due to bird flu, and viral mutations that allow transmission from human to human.

Authorities in all countries are concerned about the need for preparedness in their populations without inducing panic. They continue to urge pandemic planning for everyone including large business continuity planning to individual preparedness and personal hygiene precautions.
