Information Regarding Human Case of Bird Flu in Canada, ‘false’
Information over the internet about human incidence of bird flu in Quebec is not true, and is just a rumor, health officials confirm.

Dr Patrick Dolce, the man at the helm of infection control at the hospital in Rimouski, Quebec, said. "Everything is false; there is no patient, no nothing."

The rumors were sparked off by a Web site devoted to avian flu which had enabled a report of a nine-year-old boy ill and admitted to a hospital in Rimouski. The boy allegedly suffered Pneumonia and was in isolation, according to information posted on the site.

However, health officials have confirmed that these reports do not hold water.
