Another Bird Flu Death

A 12 yearold in Turkey.

ANKARA, Turkey (CNN) -- A 12-year-old girl who died Sunday has tested positive for the lethal H5N1 strain of bird flu, health officials said, bringing Turkey's death toll from the virus to four and the number of its human cases to 20.

The only good news is that it appears that the mortality rate is declining, but with such a small sample it is impossible to tell.
