No human cases of avian influenza or bird flu were detected among the residents at the village where bird flu was made known on Wednesday, the Malaysian Health Ministry said on Thursday.

The ministry checked 71 houses comprising 307 residents within a 300-meter radius of the location, where chickens tested positive for bird flu virus, finding no suspected human cases of bird flu as of 9 p.m. on Wednesday, it said in a statement.

Senior Malaysian officials Wednesday said that the H5N1 strain of bird flu virus had been detected near Paya Jaras Hilir village in Selangor State, west of Kuala Lumpur.

This was the first bird flu case in Malaysia since bird flu occurred in February and March of last year. The country was declared free from bird flu in June last year.

Local media said that there had been no human cases of bird flu in the country.
