OTTAWA - Canada will host a major international conference on avian flu in October to discuss how ready the world is to combat a likely pandemic, Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh said on Thursday.
The head of the UN World Health Organization said on Thursday that avian flu will mutate and become transmissible by humans. The flu has already killed more than 60 people in Asia and spread to Russia and Europe.
He said the meeting -- which is most likely to be held in the Canadian capital Ottawa -- would group health ministers and senior officials from around 30 nations.
