South Korea Resumes Import Of Thai Poultry Products - THAILAND - The immediate future Thai poultry firms looked a lot brighter when South Korea announced that it will resume imports of Thai chicken products, according to the Korean Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives.

Seoul's decision to resume its purchase of Thai chicken products followed a similar move of several other poultry importers, as Thailand's avian flu situation has remain stable for the past weeks with no new reports of confirmed or suspected cases of the virus.

The number of confirmed bird flu cases in Thailand has remained at 12; while that of suspected cases has remained at 21, according to the Department of Disease Control.

Director-General of the Department of Disease Control M.D. Charal Trinvuthipong said that since December 2003, Thailand's confirmed bird flu cases had still stood at 12, with eight having been died, and the rest four having recovered.

The number of those who have been suspected of having been infected with the H1N1 virus, the bird flu virus, on the other hand, had also remained at 21, he stated.

Deputy Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Newin Chidchob announced today that the government would soon declare Thailand as a bird-flu free nation, as the kingdom now only has three provinces remaining under close observations, or still being in the 'yellow zones'.

The provinces include Chiang Mai in the North, Khon Kaen in the Northeast, and Chonburi in the East.
