WHO chief says bird flu still little understood link
osa jutust:

ANKARA, Feb 2 (Reuters) - The World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Thursday the death of an Iraqi girl believed to have had bird flu showed how little was known about the disease.
Tests carried out by a British laboratory on the Iraqi teenager have confirmed she died of bird flu, the New Scientist magazine said on its Web site on Thursday.
WHO officials have declined to confirm the report but say they are working on the assumption that the H5N1 strain of bird flu was indeed the cause of her death.

"(The death) has highlighted how little is still known about the spread of the avian flu virus among poultry. Before her death, the presence of H5N1 in poultry in Iraq was not known," WHO director-general Lee Jong-Wook told a news conference during a visit to the Turkish capital Ankara. "Similarly here there was almost no prior warning of infection in poultry in the eastern part of Turkey," he added.
