The Chinese Health Ministry says a second person has died from bird flu in China this year. The ministry said on its Web site late Sunday that the latest victim was a 27-year-old woman surnamed Zhang who lived in Jinan city of northern China's Shandong province. She died Saturday. Earlier this month, a 19-year-old woman died from the bird flu virus in a Beijing hospital after contact with ducks in a market in a neighboring province. That was the first death from bird flu since February last year.B Health officials worry the H5N1 bird flu virus could mutate into a form that could spread easily among people.
