This article reports on the bird flu epidemic in South East Asia. At least eight people in Thailand and Vietnam have died from avian influenza or bird flu, as the virus sweeps across poultry flocks throughout Asia. An outbreak of bird flu is the last thing Asia's economies need right now, having only just recovered from the SARS virus. Thailand has now become the second country after Vietnam to have recorded fatalities from an outbreak of avian influenza, which is sweeping South East Asia, after the virus jumped from poultry to humans.
