Fear Of Bird Flu In Denmark: First Case Reported

The first suspected case of bird flu from the Denmark Danish capital of Copenhagen has raised fears about the possibility of a bird flu outbreak in the region.

According to official reports, a 25-year old man, believed to be afflicted with bird flu has been transferred to the Royal Hospital in Copenhagen from the hospital in Nykoebing on the island of Falster for further observation and management.


The presence of bird flu has to be confirmed however. It is not yet clear if the victim has been infected with the lethal H5N1 bird flu strain that has claimed the lives of more than 100 individuals, worldwide, according to reports of the World Health Organization (WHO).
