About 120 people have been infected with the virus of bird flu since it spread in Asia in 2003, most of them contacted with chickens. More than 60 people have died from the virus. While some of those infected fell ill after eating sick chickens, doctors cannot quite determine if they were ill because of eating or handling the chickens. But the question about whether eggs are safe has assumed danger since healthy chickens carrying the virus were discovered in Indonesia recently. The chickens do not fall sick and continue laying eggs even though they carry and shed the virus.
