14 Suspect Bird Flu Case in Mekong Delta Vietnam

Recombinomics Commentary
January 11, 2005

>>Fourteen people in seven Vietnam's southern localities have been hospitalized since Monday for being suspected of suffering bird flu, a local health official told Xinhua.<<

It sounds like the fourteen hospitalized bird flu cases include the six patients described previously.  Four have been confirmed and three have died.  Thus far there are no reported discharges of a confirmed case this season.  These cases are in the Mekong Delta region and the spread of H5N1 seems to be radiating out from a concentration of H5N1 infected ducks in and around Can Tho city.

More detail and the avian influenza  symptoms and sequences would be useful.
