The hullbaloo that followed the arrival of bird flu in India has died down. No cases of humans, who have contracted bird flu, have been recorded.

Meanwhile the flu seems to have spread further afield with new cases being reported in Myanmar and Cameroon.

The owners of a chicken shop in Hyderabad attempt to lure patrons back with messages (above) on the all-healthy chicken.
