According to this article from The Independant Online, H5N1, also known as Avian Flu has been contained in Vietnam, one of the world's worst hit countries.

As avian flu advances across Europe towards the UK, public health experts in the Far East claimed the first significant victory against the H5N1 virus since the current outbreak began two years ago.

Vietnam, the worst affected country in the world with 93 human cases and 42 deaths, has become the first to successfully contain the disease that threatens to become a global human pandemic, according to the World Health Organisation

Personally I'm not terribly surprised, I never put too much into the bird flu stories on the news as the timing of their release always coincided with somthing the news media didn't want us paying attention to. During the libby Indictment there was much talk of Avian Flu. Though I must say this news is a bit of a relief as death by disease is number two under fire on my list of ways I don't want to die.
