The tests that are presently available to check for Bird Flu report results only after two to ten days. Group Director, SRL Ranbaxy Ltd Janak Singh Bajwa said "India has not reported any case of 'bird flu' in humans or birds. But we must prepare ourselves if it arrives in India and be prepared to respond adequately if we are to contain the disease before it gets out of control,"
