Bird flu returns to Cambodia

Bad news from Reuters: Bird flu returns to Cambodia, official says.

The deadly H5N1 bird flu virus has returned to Cambodia, found in dead ducks near the border with Vietnam, a senior official government said on Friday.

"The dead ducks were found near a lake where wild birds live and test results showed it is the H5N1 bird flu virus," Yim Vanthon, the number two at the Agriculture Ministry, told Reuters.

The virus has killed four people in Cambodia since it first arrived in late 2003 and its reappearance was the first in months in a region experts believed could generate a mutated virus which might trigger a global human pandemic.

correctly, Cambodia had just four B2H cases, and all four died.
