Another suspected human case of H5N1 in Vietnam

I can't find the story on my Vietnamese links, but Xinhua reports that a woman in Hanoi has been hospitalized with suspected avian flu.

Vietnam has reported no new bird flu patients since late July, Vietnamese Deputy Health Minister Trinh Quan Huan said at press briefing on Wednesday. Up to 91 Vietnamese people have been infected with bird flu since the disease started to break out in the country in late 2003. Of them 41 have died.

Meanwhile, Thanh Nien News reports a Mekong Delta province is banning poultry farming outright until next year, while Vietnam's prime minister has banned raising, trading, and slaughtering poultry in urban areas.
