Two More Bird Flu-Related Deaths in China - Edward CodyChina Digital Times

From the Washington Post:

The World Health Organization announced Wednesday that two more people have died of bird flu in China, raising to five the number of those who have succumbed here to the deadly H5N1 virus.

The victims were identified as a 10-year-old female student in southern China's Guangxi province and a 35-year-old vendor in Jiangxi province in the east, both of whom died last month after contact with infected fowl. Roy Wadia, the WHO spokesman in Beijing, said the Chinese government reported the deaths during the past 48 hours in response to a WHO request for updated data on the bird flu situation.
