Four Deaths Due To Bird Flu Caught From Wild Birds

The German scientists have stated that four people have died after catching bird flu from wild swans//.

The scientists, who had only just announced about the deaths, had said that they had occurred earlier this year. They also went on to state that they were the first confirmed cases of avian flu that were being passed on from the wild birds.

Meanwhile some ornithologists and conservation experts have tried to play down the role of the wild birds for spreading the disease. At a time when the migratory birds were being unfairly shown as signs of death and disease, the UN had organised a convention on Migratory Species called the "world migratory bird day" in April.

It was also reported that almost all of the 220 other confirmed human cases of bird flu, including 130 deaths, have been linked to infected domestic poultry. Only a handful is believed to have caught the disease directly from infected humans. The cases seemed mainly to be centred on Salyan district of Azerbaijan, which was 144 kilometres southeast of Baku.

Reports have also showed that six of the seven new victims, who were all aged between 10 and 20, were from the same family. Though the relatives had initi
