Bird Flu Marches On

and has killed two in Turkey.

Two teenagers in Turkey have died of bird flu, Turkish officials say, in the first cases outside South East Asia. A 14-year-old boy who died last weekend was found to have the disease, despite earlier results indicating otherwise.


The good news is these cases, like the ones in Asia, appear related to direct contact with the birds, and not transmitted via a direct person to person route.

UPDATE
Third Turkish Child Dies.
