China today warned the public of a possible "massive" outbreak of bird flu, and said the country's agriculture officials were on high alert. The announcement came as China reported that two more people — who had both been around sick or dead birds —had died of the H5N1 bird flu strain, and that there was a new poultry outbreak in the country's east. "In view of the current situation, the possibility of a massive outbreak could not be ruled out," the official New China News Agency quoted Agriculture Minister Du Qinglin as saying.
