Parents in Cambodia are being urged to keep their children away from sick or dying poultry following the death of a four-year-old girl in the country from avian influenza. The girl, from the northwestern Banteay Meanchey province, died in late July after being infected with the H5N1 strain of the avian influenza virus.
All seven of Cambodia’s bird flu cases since January this year have been fatal. Six of the victims have been children. The girl is the seventeenth person in the country to have become infected with the virus and the fifteenth to die from complications since 2005, says the Cambodian Ministry of Health.
