The Department of Disease Control (DDC) has dismissed a report claiming that a soldier in Chiang Mai died from bird flu. 

Private Somchai Iandoi, 22, developed flu-like symptoms last week and was admitted to Theppanya Hospital in Muang Chiang Mai district. He was pronounced dead on Wednesday.

Sopon Mekthon, the DDC's director-general, yesterday said lab tests of Somchai found he tested positive for influenza A or H1N1— the virus that was the most common cause of human seasonal flu in 2009.
