The Government has announced that 94 of the 95 samples checked for presence of the H5N1 virus have tested negative.
The last one will be subjected to further tests to completely ascertain its status.
"Ninety-four out of 95 human samples are negative. The last is not positive for H5N1. We are testing it further as it does not match any classical profile of the H5N1 strain," India's Health Secretary PK Hota said.
