A 13 year old girl has become the 11th person to die in Vietnam from the deadly birdflu which is also known as H5N1 poultry virus. A 25 year old woman
from Cambordia is currently under tests with a condition suspected to be the H5N1 virus. The girl was taken to hospital on Jan. 22, one day after her
mother died of bird flu.
Yesterday doctors said bird flu had killed a man in northern Vietnam and three others were being treated for the virus.
''Cambodian people often come over to our hospitals here to check health, but this case is the first suspect of bird flu so far,'' said the doctor in
Kien Giang's capital, Rach Gia, 250 km (155 miles) southwest of Ho Chi Minh City.

I am really becoming concerned with this bird flu situation. Apparently it would be possible for it to easily mutate into a virus which could easily
be passed among people. As soon as this started spreading to other country's it could be a worldwide disaster killing millions.
