"Thirteen new areas have been certified," said Kumar. "It has been shown that an area that was looking blank between infected areas is also infected."

Maharashtra has been in the eye of the bird-flu storm for quite a while, and despite no human cases of bird-flu reported yet, there are apprehensions that the disease might spread to humans.
