Bird flu scare pops its head once again in India

When it's happening in the world why would India be left behind. A poultry dealer hailing from Amreli district of Gujarat and suspected of bird flu was on Saturday admitted to the civil hospital in Ahemedabad.

According to the minister, "However, only after detail medical tests we would be able to state whether the man has actually contracted the bird flu virus. Two preliminary tests conducted on him have been negative. But we are not taking any chances and hence we have admitted him to the hospital and are carrying out other tests."

Citing and showing concern the minister said that he is also convening a high-level meeting with the health and animal husbandry department officials in this regard.
