Bird Flu Infections Over

Swedish Radio News reports that the island of Gotland is now officially free of bird flu.

At least 60 dead birds have been found in Sweden carrying the aggressive form of avian influensa. But after the initial reports, the number of infected birds declined sharply, and last week officials said the infection was over here, at least for the time being.

If no new cases are discovered, all of Sweden will be declared free of bird flu on Friday.
