Breaking News--suspected bird flu death in Iraq

At this hour, Iraq is reporting an a suspected new bird flu death. Here's the rub. It is a 40M, who is the uncle of the young girl who died there earlier, but whose tests were deemed negative. Of course, we have often seen false negatives, especially on the first case in a country. This seems to me to make this more likely to be a false negative.
