    Vietnam confirms new bird flu deaths
    Vietnam has officially confirmed that two young boys have died from bird flu amid reports that two other people are suspected of contracting the virus.

    "We assert that there have been three people infected with the H5N1 virus since December 16, of whom, two had died," the daily Lao Dong newspaper quoted the legal department's Tran Duc Long as saying.

    On Thursday, the Government said that only a 16-year-old girl from southern Tay Ninh province, who is in critical condition in Ho Chi Minh City, had been infected with the H5N1 strain of the bird flu virus.

    The two boys, aged six and nine, were also from the south.

    They died on December 30 and January 4.

    Their deaths bring the total toll from bird flu in Vietnam since late 2003 to 22.

    Another state-run newspaper, Tuoi Tre reports that a further two suspected bird flu patients, an 18-year-old girl and a 65-year-old man, are being treated.

    Both are from Tien Giang in the south and are being treated in Ho Chi Minh City's Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

    The country is implementing drastic measures to prevent bird flu spreading, especially in the Mekong river delta provinces.

    At least 29,000 birds have been culled in Vietnam since December to try to contain the disease, according to local officials.

    Next month's upcoming Lunar New Year festivities are proving a headache for officials with the demand for poultry consumption expected to boom.

    Prime Minister Phan Van Khai has ordered a ban on the transportation of sick poultry from affected areas to keep outbreaks in check.

    He has also asked concerned authorities to step up their vigilance, particularly in regions along the border with China.

    The Government said in October that it had brought bird flu under control.

    It had made a similar announcement on March 30 but later admitted that the declaration had been premature after three people, including two children, died in August after being infected with the H5N1 virus.
