He said the deaths reported at Kampung Padang in Gajah Mati, near Alor Star, Seberang Takir in Kuala Terengganu, PKNS Flats in Datuk Keramat, Kuala Lumpur, and Kampung Seri Pajar in Kuantan tested negative for the killer H5N1 virus.

The minister also said the operation to detect bird flu cases at Kampung Paya Jaras Hilir in Sungai Buloh was called off Thursday in the absence of new cases.

"However, monitoring of the health conditions of the personnel involved in the prevention and control measures will continue for two weeks from the last day of the operations," he said in a statement.
