I'll need to confirm this later with an alternative source, but I thought I'd throw this out here:




Japanese police arrest two doctors for not reporting bird flu cases

Japanese police arrested two veterinarians Monday for allegedly failing to report suspected bird flu infections at three chicken farms to local authorities, media reports said.

Ibaraki prefectural (state) police suspect a veterinarian working for IKN Egg Farms last August requested a National Institute of Animal Health veterinarian to conduct tests to confirm bird flu infections in chickens from the three farms, Kyodo News agency and the Asahi newspaper said.

Police suspect the test results came back positive, but neither veterinarian reported the findings to Ibaraki authorities as required by laws covering infectious diseases in domestic animals, Kyodo and Asahi said.



My bet is that this will happen more and more over the coming months...
