China has reported two human deaths due to bird flu and is an increased threat for mutation of the bird flu virus to become a more virulent infective form for humans, the Chinese Government does not want to take any risks in preventing the disease from transmission from birds to humans as the risk of transmission of virus is high in China as it has more than 640,000 villages where birds are raised in close proximity with humans.
