Two patients ñ a 10-year-old girl and a man ñ living in the vicinity of a poultry farm in Abbottabad were admitted to hospitals in Abbottabad district on Saturday.

Health Minister Kamal Shah said one of the patients was admitted to the Ayub Medical Complex (HMC) and another to a private health facility, Shahina Jamil Hospital.

Sources told this scribe that blood samples of both the patients were sent to the National Institute of Health (NIH), which confirmed the two patients were suffering from H5N1 virus, which is considered the most severe bird-flu virus.

Also, blood samples of the third patient who was admitted to Peshawar’s Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) were sent to NIH, which is supposed to release report within 24 hours.
