Bird flu subsides

There were no new bird flu cases reported during the Tet new year observances. A Vietnamese agricultural official said the situation is now bettter than in the days leading up to Tet. Seven of the country's 34 provinces and cities that had reported the disease had not registered any new cases in poultry for 21 days, he said, adding that there are no new human cases. More than 1.5 million birds have been killed so far this year to prevent the spread of bird flu. (Agence France Presse, Feb. 14).
