3:40 p.m.: WSJ Reporter Robert Tomsho reports. One of the Chinese scientists that conducted the study that found a suspected 2003 SARS victim actually had bird flu told the New England Journal of Medicine that his research group never sought to withdraw the submission of its finding to the publication.

1:15 p.m.: Ministers of agriculture, health, livestock, environment and integration from 13 West African nations held a one-day meeting to develop a coordinated plan to stem the spread of bird flu in the region, the AFP news service reported. Bird flu has already been reported in Nigeria, Niger, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Cameroon in west Africa, Egypt in the north and Djibouti in the east.

9:30 a.m.: An international conference aimed at helping Indonesia combat the brisk spread of bird flu ended Friday without a concrete strategy to address the government's massive funding shortfall. Indonesia says it needs $900 million dedicated to bird flu-fighting efforts over the next three years, but has yet to receive a "single cent" from international donors.

5 a.m.: A WHO investigation showed that the H5N1 virus mutated slightly in an Indonesian family cluster on Sumatra island, but bird-flu experts insisted Friday it didn't increase the possibility of a human pandemic. The virus that infected eight members of a family last month -- killing seven of them -- appears to have slightly mutated in a 10-year-old boy, who is then suspected of passing the virus to his father, the WHO investigative report said. It is the first evidence of possible human-to-human-to-human transmission of the H5N1 virus, said Tim Uyeki, an epidemiologist from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adding that the virus didn't pass outside the family. "Then it stopped. It was dead end at that point," he said, stressing that viruses are always slightly changing and there was no reason to raise alarm bells.
