The Chosun Ilbo has a story on a man in his 40s who was infected by bird flu but didn’t develop any negative health symptoms.

The Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention(KCDC) said that a man in his 40s tested positive for the highly pathogenic H5N1 virus. The center conducted tests on 26 residents near four poultry farms in North Jeolla Province which were hit by bird flu in November and December last year. Final test results on 85 residents are due late this month.

Thankfully however the reporters avoided linking the man’s good health to kimchi consumption this time.
