    Bird flu case in Japan
    From correspondents in Tokyo

    JAPAN's Health Ministry said today that at least one person had been infected with the bird flu virus after an outbreak among chickens in February but there was no chance that this person would infect others.

    The ministry said four others had probably also been infected with the avian flu virus but added that none of the five had developed any symptoms of bird influenza.
    The case marks the first human infection of the bird flu virus in Japan, which reported several cases of bird flu earlier this year.

    "We think that one person has been infected," a Health Ministry official told reporters, adding that chances were high that four others had also been infected.

    The ministry had said on Saturday that blood tests showed that five people who were involved in work such as the culling of chickens after an outbreak of avian flu in Kyoto in western Japan in February had developed an antibody to the virus.

    All of the bird flu outbreaks in Japan have been identified as the H5N1 virus, the strain that has hit other countries in Asia and been blamed for human deaths in Vietnam and Thailand.
