Teleporting dead ducks

Stuffed up directions will get you nowhere,
STOCKHOLM: Sweden's National Veterinary Institute said a duck found dead east of the capital has tested positive for avian flu but that it was too early to say which strain of virus the bird had.

"The result of the virus tests which were carried out today on samples from ducks found in Eskilstuna show that one of them was infected with influenza," the institute said in a statement.

The institute is carrying out additional analysis and the results of the tests on whether the virus of the H5 type are due late Sunday afternoon.
Problem is, Eskilstuna is considerably west of Stockholm. East of Stockholm is Estonia. Anyway, it apparently wasn't the SARS, sorry, the H5N1 flu so everyone is happy. Except the dead duck in Eskilstuna. Not east of Stockholm.
