First bird flu death in Nigeria

A Nigerian woman who died suffering from flu symptoms has tested positive for the deadly H5N1 strain of the avian flu virus, says a government minister.

Many Nigerians earn their living from the poultry trade.

It is the first bird flu death reported in sub-Saharan Africa since it surfaced in Nigeria a year ago.

The victim was a 22-year-old from the commercial capital, Lagos.

Health officials said inconclusive tests had also been carried out on her mother and two other people, all of whom died recently.

"Last night our team of 13 scientists were able to conclusively identify the case of avian influenza," Nigerian Information Minister Frank Nweke Jnr told a news conference in Lagos.

He said blood samples were now being sent to foreign laboratories and the findings are now with the World Health Organisation for further scrutiny.

More than 160 people have died of H5N1 bird flu since its outbreak in December 2003 - most of them in South-East Asia.
