UN issues bird flu warningby Nikki Tundel, Minnesota Public Radio
Bird flu is no longer dominating the headlines. But that doesn't mean we've beaten it into submission.
St. Paul, Minn. — Avian influenza is still alive and well. Just ask officials in Indonesia.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization says efforts to control Indonesia's bird flu outbreaks in poultry are failing. And it warns that "the high level of virus circulation in birds in the country could create conditions for the virus to mutate and to finally cause a human influenza pandemic."
Current host Mary Lucia and reporter Nikki Tundel discuss the latest bird flu news.
