Taiwan reports H6N1 bird flu case

Taiwan on Friday reported what it said was the world's first ever human case of the H6N1 strain of bird flu, commonly found in poultry. A 20-year-old woman living in central Taiwan showed flu symptoms on May 5 and was briefly hospitalised for minor pneumonia before making a full recovery, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) said. Samples from her later tested positive for the H6N1 strain of avian influenza, the CDC said.
