The two children were hospitalized after it was learned they had had contact with infected chickens at home. Fortunately, neither of them was tested positive for the H5 virus.

A health official said that with weather conditions being cooler at the moment, the chances of another outbreak of bird flu are high.

He advised people to stay away from dead poultry and immediately seek medical attention if they show any signs of unexpected fever.
