Thailand Confirms Second Avian-Flu Death of '06
posted by admin on 07/08/06

The WHO hasn't confirmed the latest death in Thailand.

August 7, 2006

BANGKOK -- A 27-year-old man has died of bird flu, becoming the second person this year to be killed by the disease in Thailand, a Health Ministry official said Saturday.

Thawat Suntrajarn, chief of the Department of Communicable Disease Control, said the man came from Uthai Thani province in the country's north.

"I can confirm the man tested positive for the H5N1 virus," Dr. Thawat said. The tests were carried out at Bangkok's Siriraj hospital.

The man became sick on July 24, a few days after burying one of his 16 free-range chickens that had died, a health ministry statement said.

On July 31, he was diagnosed with pneumonia and was given the antiviral drug oseltamivir, which is used to treat bird flu in humans. But his condition worsened and he died on Thursday, the statement said.

The man's wife has been given oseltamivir and will be monitored for the next 14 days, it added.

At least 134 people have died world-wide since the disease began spreading in Asia in late 2003, according to the World Health Organization, including 15 in Thailand.

The WHO hasn't confirmed the latest death in Thailand.

In the past two weeks, Thailand has confirmed two outbreaks of H5N1 in poultry and recorded its first human fatalities from the disease in eight months.

News of the new outbreaks triggered increased concern about the disease, and hundreds of people who earlier had bird-flu-like symptoms but were cleared after testing were being checked again.
