Death from bird flu (H5N1) reported in Canada

There is a report that a man who had traveled to Beijing has died in Alberta, Camada of H5N1 avian infkuenza, or bird flu.  The UK Guardian reports the death here.

The province reports that ten people have died of H1N1, or swine flu, which the current vaccine is spposed to prevent.

Canadian officials say that the H5N1 case seems to be isolated.  Human H5N1 has occurred in southeastern China, but had not been reported in Beijing as far as I had heard.

Media is also reporting the possibility of Pacific Ocean water becoming contaminated with Fukashima radioactive waste, and eventually reaching the US Pacific coast.  It would seem to be tremendously diluted if it could.
