    CHANGSHA, Jan. 25 (Xinhuanet) -- China's eighth bird flu patient in the central province of Hunan has been removed from quarantine,a local hospital source said Wednesday.

    After a month's treatment, the 6-year-old patient surnamed Ouyang has recovered and can communicate and play with doctors and nurses like a normal child, said Zhu Yimin, head of the Hunan Provincial Children's Hospital.

    The result of the patient's medical exams showed that he would not transfer the disease to other people, Zhu said.

    His parents can now visit their son in the ward where they would celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year.

    The boy was confirmed on Jan. 9 to have been infected with H5N1bird flu. He suffered serious damages on both lungs at the beginning.

    Ouyang had fever and pneumonia symptoms on Dec. 24. He was transferred to the hospital on Jan. 11 and has been under round-the-clock monitoring since then.

    China reported 10 human cases of bird flu this winter. Seven of the patients died. Enditem
