H5N1 Virus Claims Two More Lives In China
The World Health Organization (WHO) has revealed that two more people in China have succumbed to the avian influenza, raising the causality figure to five in the country . The latest victims were a 35-year-old man and 10-year-old girl. The H5N1 virus is reported to be responsible for both the deaths.

This does not mean that the human infection of bird flu is out of control in China, but it's a reminder that it is a very serious disease.

According to WHO figures, there have been 80 deaths worldwide from the H5N1 strain of bird flu.
