WHO in Human/Human Transmission in Thailand

In the story linked below, WHO has acknowledged that there has not yet been any link established between the deceased mother and sick birds.

The initial negative data for samples from the aunt is another concern, if the aunt's clinical picture deteriorates, because the virus may have recombined and generated a virus that is no longer recognized by the screening tests.
