Cambodian health authorities report a laboratory confirmed human case of influenza A/H9, or bird flu, in a one-year-old girl from Siem Reap province’s Chi Kraeng district.
The child is currently hospitalized.
The Communicable Disease Control Department (CDC) has reported chickens dying since February.
The ministry immediately sent officials from the CDC to cooperate with the provincial emergency response team to investigate, prevent and control the spread of the virus. They found 13 people in the same village having similar symptoms as the infected baby.
However, the test result which came out yesterday showed that none of the 13 was infected with the virus.
