Vietnamese doctor dies of unidentified disease

    HANOI, April 5 (Xinhuanet) -- A doctor from Vietnam's northern Quang Ninh province has died from acute pneumonia caused by an unidentified disease, although several treatment procedures including those for bird flu and SARS patients were used.

    The 34-year-old doctor named Ho Dai Nghia died on Sunday, two days after he started exhibiting symptoms of acute pneumonia, local newspaper Pioneer reported Tuesday.

    Some doctors and patients at the Vietnam-Sweden Hospital in the province, where he worked and underwent treatment, are now under close surveillance. Specimens from the man are being tested by the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology.

    Nghia did not eat poultry meat during the recent outbreak of bird flu, the report said. A 40-year-old woman from Quang Ninh has recently been confirmed to contract bird flu virus strain H5N1.

    Vietnam has reported 34 human cases of bird flu infection since mid-December 2004, of whom 15 died. Sixty-three local people were infected with SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) hitting Vietnam in February 2003, of whom five died. Enditem
