Thailand denied human cases of bird flu as unexplained poultry die-off had reported in five provinces

___

The Department of Disease Control says there is no human infection case of bird flu although poultry deaths were reported in five provinces.

Assurance of no human infection was given by the director-general of the Department of Disease Control Dr Jetsada Chokdumrongsuk following poultry deaths in Songkhla, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Suphanburi, Sukhothai, and Phitsanulok.

He said the department continued to monitor the spread of bird flu although there was no human infection case for the past 12 years.

But for the unusual poultry deaths, he said the department received reports from these five provinces in June alone.

(…)

For a 62-year old patient reported to have eaten in the sick chicken, it has found that he suffered normal cold sickness, not bird flu.
