Officials Confirm Thai Boy's Death Was From Bird Flu
posted by admin on 27/07/06

The boy became Thailand's 15th bird-flu fatality

July 27, 2006

BANGKOK, Thailand -- Thailand confirmed that a 16-year-old boy who died this week was infected with the H5N1 bird-flu virus. Thai health officials said Wednesday that Yongyuth Daengmeesri of the northern province of Phichit, who died Monday, became infected after helping his family bury some of their chickens that had died.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra held the boy's family responsible for the death because they failed to inform health authorities that their chickens were sick and sought to avoid a required cull of all their poultry. "They buried the chickens themselves because they were worried that if they told the authorities, the authorities would cull all their chickens," Mr. Thaksin said. "The hospital learned about the case only after the patient's condition had deteriorated."

The boy became Thailand's 15th bird-flu fatality and the country's first confirmed case in humans this year. Health officials also were closely monitoring three other suspected cases in Phichit province, the public health minister said.
