4:55 p.m.: Mass poultry vaccinations like those in China and Indonesia may impede detection of bird flu in humans, CIDRAP reported, citing a report in from the European Centre for Disease Surveillance and Control in Stockholm.

12:45 p.m.: The first known case of humans catching H5N1 from wild birds was reported in Azerbaijan, the Guardian reported. Four people died after plucking feathers from dead swans to sell for pillows, the paper reported. Three other people allegedly contracted the disease from the swans, but survived.

9:50 a.m.: Researchers in Edinburgh, Scotland, are using a global computer network dubbed "The Grid" to screen thousands of potential drugs for bird flu and malaria more rapidly than conventional lab techniques, the Scotsman reported.

9 a.m.: Bird flu is the first flu virus that has been able to make cats sick, Michael Greger of the Humane Society was quoted as saying in Wired magazine. Dogs so far haven't gotten sick from bird flu, the magazine reported, but they may be carriers that can spread the disease. That raises a new question: How will health officials convince people to quarantine their pets in the event of a pandemic? The magazine points out that, in Thailand, mandatory killing of money-earning fighting cocks due to bird flu led owners to flee with their birds. In the U.S., if authorities even thought of killing house pets, Dr. Greger told Wired, people would probably do the same thing -- run away and risk spreading the disease.
