Live Online Broadcast of Bird Flu Victim's Treatment

The Hunan Provincial Children's Hospital will live broadcast the medical treatment of the country's eighth bird flu victim online, Xinhua news agency reported yesterday. The patient, identified as a native of Hunan Province surnamed Ouyang, 6, began to suffer serious damage to both lungs yesterday, said Zhu Yimin, president of the hospital, where the boy is receiving treatment.

Zhu said many people were caring about the boy's condition because he is the second human being who was infected with the H5N1 strain of bird flu in Hunan. So they planned to install a camera in his ward to broadcast the medical treatment and show part of his daily life via the Web. Ouyang began running a fever and exhibiting symptoms of pneumonia on December 24. He was transferred to the provincial-level hospital early Monday.
