A Kampong Cham province man suspected to have avian influenza will become the year’s eighth verified case if ongoing tests at the Institut Pasteur’s laboratory confirm him positive, health officials said yesterday.
The man was admitted to the Kampong Cham provincial hospital with respiratory problems after eating two ducks that had died in his village, where several poultry recently had died, said Ly Sovann, deputy director of the Communicable Disease Control Department.
