Bird Flu

Back in sanitised Sydney, I read in the SMH that there have been 41 deaths from bird flu in Vietnam- top scoring country so far. But then tonight the ABC reported seven only which does sound more likely. There was not much mention of it over there apart from an article in the English language daily Vietnam News describing attempts to vaccinate the whole chook population helped by new supplies of vaccine from China.

Stop press - the total is now 42 as of November 8th 2005!
