3:50 p.m.: Five Asian nations -- all hard hit by bird flu -- have chosen different poultry-vaccination strategies. Thailand and Cambodia ban poultry vaccinations, while China, Vietnam and Indonesia aggressively vaccinate, though in different ways. So, Canada's International Development Research Center is funding a study to determine which approach is most effective, the Associated Press reported.

11:45 a.m.: Marsh & McLennan CEO Michael Cherkasky said that a pandemic is likely, but the insurance chief doesn't think it will be avian flu, U.K. newspaper the Daily Telegraph reported. Cherkasky said what he's worried about is an "infodemic," as information is spread so rapidly today that a few human infections in the western hemisphere could spark panic. SARS killed fewer than 1,000 people, but cost $40 billion, Cherkasky pointed out, adding that traditional flu kills 100 times that many people each year.

10:35 a.m.: Officials from the Indonesian resort island of Bali slaughtered and burned hundreds of ducks after tests showed some had bird flu. The birds had been smuggled to Bali from neighboring Java, Indonesia's main island, Bali's top veterinary officials said. Bali has banned live poultry imports to stop the spread of the virus, which has so far killed at least 24 people in Indonesia.

3:45 a.m.: A new case of bird flu has been confirmed in poultry in the eastern Afghan province of Kapisa, a U.N. official said. Four Afghan provinces have now reported confirmed cases of H5N1, the others being Kabul, Logar and Nangarhar.
