ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the report from authorities in Chile to the World Health Organization on what is believed to be the first case of transmission of A/H1N1 influenza virus between humans and birds. The reports state that breeding turkeys on two units in the Valparaiso province were sampled following a drop in egg production. The haemagglutin genes isolated from the samples were identical to that of strains circulating in human cases in Chile.
