4:10 p.m.: U.N. bird-flu chief David Nabarro said that the estimate for how much Africa will need in the next three years to stem bird flu is between $500 million and $1 billion. 

2 p.m.: The Sept. 11, 2001 attacks prompted U.S. companies to begin geographically diversifying their work forces and work-distribution specialist George Horhota told a business bird-flu preparedness conference in Winnipeg that the possibility of a human pandemic of bird flu should motivate Canadian companies to do the same. "There's an old saying that when you hear thunder it is too late to build an ark," Horhota said.

10:45 a.m.: Indonesian Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari said she doesn't know what else she can do to raise public awareness about the dangers of bird flu, which has killed 37 people in Indonesia. "I've actually run out of ideas," said Siti Fadilah Supari, whose country averaged one human bird flu death every 2 1/2 days last month. She estimated that half of Indonesia's 220 million population still know nothing about the bird-flu threat. 

10:05 a.m.: The EU and World Bank are creating a multidonor trust fund aimed at helping developing countries boost their bird-flu preparedness. The EU's contribution is estimated between US$50 million to $60 million. China, Russia, Slovenia, Korea, Iceland and Australia have also agreed to donate to the fund. The U.K. is also expected to donate but hasn't formally agreed to provide funding.
