WHO confirms Pakistan human-to-human birdflu caseIT'S COMING... IT'S JUST A MATTER OF WHEN...
GENEVA - THE World Health Organisation (WHO) confirmed a single case of human-to-human transmission of the H5N1 bird flu virus in a family in Pakistan but said there was no apparent risk of it spreading wider.
A statement from the UN agency on Thursday said tests in its special laboratories in Cairo and London had established the 'human infection' through presence of the virus 'collected from one case in an affected family'.
But it said a WHO team invited to Pakistan to look into an outbreak involving up to nine people, from late October to Dec 6 had found no evidence of sustained or community human-to-human transmission.
