The World Health Organization has reported that a new strain of bird flu has jumped to people for the first time ever.

“A new strain of bird flu has jumped to humans in an event that has 'potential for high public health impact', the World Health Organisation has warned."

WHO said the 59-year-old resident of Mexico had died on April 24 after developing a fever, shortness of breath, diarrhoea, nausea and general discomfort.

This was the first laboratory-confirmed human case of infection with A(H5N2) subtype of bird flu reported globally and the first H5 virus infection in a person reported in Mexico.
