Monday, 09 April 2012
A fatal human case of avian influenza (H5N1) in Cambodia was added yesterday to the World Health Organization's (WHO's) official count of H5N1 cases. The patient was a 6-year-old girl from Kampong Chhnang province. Her symptoms began Mar 22, she was hospitalized Mar 28 in Phnom Penh, and she died Mar 30. The girl had had contact with sick or dead poultry before symptom onset, says a WHO alert. Her case was reported by news outlets earlier this week. The case brings the total number of human H5N1 cases in Cambodia since 2005 to 20, with 18 deaths.
