Summary: A new epidemic of severe influenza amongst flocks of poultry was identified in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) in December 2003 and has subsequently spread to several other Asian countries including Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, China, Laos and Indonesia. The virus is called influenza A H5N1. This influenza virus has since infected a small number of humans who have had contact with diseased birds or their faeces. Some of the people infected with this virus have died. Should this virus develop the ability to be transmitted easily between people (eg. by combining with a human influenza virus), it is possible that many more humans may be infected.
