BEIJING, May 18 — Cases of bird flu have been confirmed among wildfowl in western China, the agriculture ministry said today, as concerns grow over a US outbreak infecting cattle herds.

Two counties in Qinghai province confirmed 275 cases of H5 influenza among dead Pallas’s gull and other wild birds, China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said in a notice on its website.

The ministry received a report on the cases from the China Animal Disease Control Centre, and the National Avian Influenza Reference Laboratory confirmed the finding, the notice said.

The H5N1 outbreak among dairy cattle in at least nine US states since late March has raised questions over whether it could spread to humans. No such cases have been reported.
