Samples test negative for H5N1 virus

BINH DUONG (VNS)— Samples taken from the boarding house zone in Thuan An Town, where a patient died of suspected A/H5N1, have tested negative for the virus.

The information was confirmed by Ta Trong Khang, deputy director of the Binh Duong Department of Animal Health.

After Nguyen Van Sang, a 42-year-old who lived in the zone, was hospitalised last week and later died due to what doctors believed was A/H5N1, local animal health experts took samples of different flocks of livestock in the zone for tests.

Sang, from the southern province of Kien Giang, was taken to Binh Duong General Hospital with a high temperature, coughing and breathing difficulties. He died after being moved to the HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases. — VNS
