Laos confirms first human bird flu case, teenage girl remains hospitalized

Health officials in Laos on Tuesday confirmed the country's first human bird flu case, according to the World Health Organization.

A 15-year-old girl living outside the capital of Vientiane fell ill Feb. 10 with flu-like symptoms after the H5N1 virus was confirmed in poultry days earlier in the same area, according to a joint statement by the Lao Ministry of Health and the WHO, reports AP.

The girl was hospitalized in Vientiane and later transferred to Thailand, where she is in stable condition, it said. Lab results came back positive for the virus on Saturday.
