The World Health Organization confirms the first case of death from H5N2 bird flu, which said the 59-year-old Mexican man had fever, shortness of breath, nausea and diarrhea. He had died on April 24.

This is the first confirmed human case of this subtype of bird flu in the world - and the first H5 infection reported in Mexico.

The victim had no history of exposure to birds or animals, WHO said.

Before the H5N2 case was confirmed, it was unclear whether this virus could infect humans. Bird flu viruses do not generally infect humans – but there are rare cases of it.
