Thailand's North has alerted of the bird flu outbreak after almost 100 poultries died recently in a northern province of Nan. As Thailand's North is now experiencing the winter, during Oct.7 to Nov. 5 some 79 poultries died in six districts of Nan province, a senior official at Nan's livestock department said Thursday. The department collected some examples of the dead poultries and sent them to a nearby province of Lam-pang, where a regional office of the National Institute of Animal Health, is located, to examine, the official said. It will take about two weeks to know if the dead poultries were affected with the bird flu or A/H1N1 influenza, the official said.
Vietnamese animal health authorities officially recognized the resurgence of bird flu in the northern Dien Bien Province on Sunday, a half a year since the country brought the deadly virus under control. The province Animal Health Department said tests on sick and dead chicken at nine farmers’ houses in Dien Bien District between October 21 and 23 were positive for the H5N1 virus. A total of 2,283 chickens in the area had been destroyed, the department said. The Animal Health Department at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said in a statement Sunday that the outbreak was occurring after six months in which the disease was fully contained throughout the country. Another statement by the department in June said Vietnam had successfully curbed the spread of bird flu, together with two other livestock diseases — foot-and-mouth and the blue ear pig disease. Since early this year, bird flu has occurred in 16 provinces and cities, prompting the culling and destruction of 100,000 ducks and chickens, according to the ministry. Vietnam has the world’s second-highest human bird flu death toll after Indonesia, with 56 deaths to date, including four this year. The last case was a 23-year-old woman who died in northern Thanh Hoa province in late April.

Now, if the article had claimed some evidence of a drinking water supply being spiked with a chemical or biological agent, then I think it might be more plausible
