Tests confirm H5N1 bird flu strain in two Moscow districts

Moscow, Feb 18: A Russian veterinary official reported a fourth outbreak of dead domestic poultry in a suburban Moscow district today as experts tightened quarantines following confirmation of the presence of the deadly h5N1 bird flu strain.

The presence of H5N1, confirmed by tests late yesterday, was the first such outbreak to be recorded so close to the Russian Capital.

Dead domestic fowl were reported today in the Taldom district, north of the capital, Moscow regional veterinarian Valery Sitinkov said, according to Russian news agencies.

Earlier, officials with the Federal Agricultural Oversight Agency Rosselkhoznadzor said that three District of west and south of Moscow had recorded bird deaths.

Agency spokesman Alexei Alexeyenko said late yesterday that tests had confirmed the presence of H5N1 in poultry found dead in two of the districts _ Odintsovo and Domodedovo _ where two dozen birds died this week. Results of tests taken in the Podolsk district, where nearly four dozen birds died, were still pending.

Officials said several people who were in close contact the dead poultry were taken in for medical observation, but no health problems had been reported.

Russian Television broadcast footage showing veterinary workers clad in protective suits checking homes in one district and spraying vehicle tires with disinfectant, while police began enforcing a quarantine in an effort to prevent the virus' spread.

Regulators also shut down an outdoor poultry market in Moscow where some of the dead birds appeared to have been bought and Nikolai Vlasov, a senior Rosselkhoznadzor Veterinary Official, said more outbreaks were possible.

Villages sealed off as bird flu reaches outskirts of capital

Tony Halpin in Moscow

Thousands of Russians were undergoing tests last night after an outbreak of bird flu at chicken farms on the outskirts of Moscow.
Health officials confirmed that chickens at two farms within 30 miles (49km) of the capital had died from the H5N1 strain of the virus. Dead birds suspected of being contaminated were also being tested at three other locations near Moscow.
“Medical monitoring is under way for 5,453 residents in the relevant areas, including 20 citizens who were in direct contact with the infected birds,” said Gennady Onishchenko, Russia’s chief epidemiologist. No illnesses had been reported among human beings so far, he said.
This is the first time that bird flu has been detected so close to Moscow, which is home to more than ten million people. Officials established quarantine zones around villages in affected areas and began bird vaccination programmes. Veterinary officials have established that the bird flu virus came from chickens bought at a Moscow bird market. More than 150 birds have died at private farms around the city in the past ten days.
“From the very beginning we have been taking safety measures, assuming that it was this strain, so the confirmation does not change anything,” said Nikolai Vlasov, director of veterinary inspection for Russia’s state agricultural agency.
The virus was found previously in 2005 in poultry plants in the Krasnodar region of Russia, 625 miles south of Moscow.
Sergei Yeremin, director of the World Health Organisation’s bird flu programme in Russia, said that this experience had left the country “highly prepared” for the present outbreak.
“There have been no cases of human infection in Russia, though it is located in a migratory zone for wild birds. This is one of the signs that Russia is ready,” he said.
“What worries us more is the source of the infected birds, how they wound up at the market.”
The Moscow regional prosecutor said that it had begun a criminal inquiry to establish “the source of the illness and the guilty parties who violated veterinary rules”.
Russia’s Interior Ministry ordered measures to prevent any possible spread of the infection. Police visited every house in the affected districts to seek information about possible sick birds, while road traffic inspectors were checking all poultry vehicles.
Valery Sitnikov, Moscow’s chief veterinarian, said that he was confident that the spread of the virus had been contained. “The incubation period of the disease is one to two days, which means that if there had been a massive die-off of hens elsewhere, we would have learnt about it,” he said.
Estonia responded to the outbreak by banning the sale of birds in markets. Azerbaijan also banned imports of poultry from farms around Moscow.

Veterinary official: H5N1 bird flu strain confirmed in 8 suburban Moscow districts


The Associated Press
Published: February 22, 2007




MOSCOW: The H5N1 bird flu strain has been confirmed in eight suburban Moscow districts, a top Russian veterinary official said Thursday, as experts enforced a quarantine in several villages and sought to keep the disease from spreading.
Nikolai Vlasov, head of agriculture oversight agency Rosselkhoznadzor, told reporters that increased awareness about bird flu had led to a rush of calls from people reporting bird deaths.
There were now eight areas where H5N1 has been confirmed, three of which were recently added, he said.
Russian news reports cited local officials as saying, meanwhile, that a ninth suburban district had reported poultry dying of bird flu. The report could not immediately be confirmed.
The virus, which began killing domestic birds in the Moscow suburbs on Feb. 9, has been traced to a single animal market just outside the capital.
Today in Europe


The Emergency Situations Ministry said Wednesday that at least 333 domestic birds have died since Feb. 9, and an additional 1,833 have been killed at eight locations on Moscow's outskirts.
Officials have enforced a quarantine around the affected districts, spraying down vehicle tires and vaccinating poultry.
Some residents of Ramenskoye, a town southeast of the capital, said they had seen no signs of dead poultry.
"I never noticed anything strange, or any signs of disease. They (chickens) are very healthy, they eat their food as usual, I give them snow instead of water," Lyudmila Gorbatova told Associated Press Television News.
No human cases of bird flu have been reported in Russia, which had its first reported cases of H5N1 in Siberia in 2005. Outbreaks have since occurred farther west, but mostly in southern areas far from the capital.
Since it began ravaging Asian poultry farms in late 2003, the H5N1 strain has killed at least 167 people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

China Confirms Human Case of Bird Flu


By AUDRA ANG
Posted: Mar. 1, 2007
Updated: Mar. 2 2:30 p.m.


BEIJING — China reported a new human case of bird flu on Thursday, and the World Health Organization disputed Indonesia's claim that the two were close to resolving a dispute over sharing virus samples that could be used to develop a commercial vaccine.
Also Thursday, officials in Myanmar said the United Nations has pledged assistance in coping with an outbreak discovered on a poultry farm on the outskirts of its largest city, Yangon.
The human infection in China occurred in the coastal province of Fujian, where a 44-year-old farmer surnamed Li was diagnosed on February 18 after she developed a fever and began coughing, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
It was the mainland's first human case of bird flu since January 10, when the government said a 37-year-old farmer in Anhui province in eastern China had contracted bird flu but had recovered.
State media said Li raised only a handful of chickens. China Daily and the Xinhua News Agency said health officials have ruled out the possibility of an outbreak in poultry in Li's village and that the source of infection may have been migratory birds.
Xinhua said tests by the provincial disease control and prevention center showed that Li had been infected with the H5N1 virus strain, and that the Chinese Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had confirmed the result on February 27.
The report did not say whether the farmer worked with poultry, or whether infected birds were found, but said she had "made contact with dead fowl."
The virus remains essentially an animal disease, but experts fear it may mutate into a form easily spreadable between humans, triggering a pandemic.
In Indonesia, Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari said a guarantee letter from WHO Director General Margaret Chan was expected to arrive Thursday, after which "Indonesia will resume sending as soon as possible" samples of the bird flu virus to the U.N. health body.
However, WHO spokesman Dick Thompson told The Associated Press that no such deal had been cemented. He said that the letter was still under discussion.
It was hoped that such a deal would resolve a standoff between WHO and Indonesia, which triggered a storm of criticism last month by withholding virus samples because it worried that large drug companies would use its H5N1 strain to make vaccines too expensive for developing nations.
Several countries are developing vaccines to protect against H5N1, which has been responsible for at least 167 human deaths worldwide, more than one-third of them in Indonesia.
Meanwhile, Tang Zang Ping, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization representative in Myanmar, said the agency was assisting in isolation of poultry farms, disinfection and culling of birds after H5N1 was detected in a western suburb of Yangon.
Myanmar officials say the latest outbreak has affected chickens, ducks and pullets, killing 68 birds. Another 1,292 birds were deemed susceptible to the disease and destroyed.
In Vietnam, officials said the avian flu has resurfaced in the southern Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long, just days after an outbreak was reported in the northern part of the country.
About 50 unvaccinated ducks died at a farm in Tra On District on February 25, and test results released Thursday showed they were infected with the H5N1 strain of bird flu, said Nguyen Ba Thanh, director of the Mekong regional animal health center.
The outbreak has forced authorities to slaughter 800 ducklings, Thanh said.
Vietnam went an entire year without any confirmed reports of bird flu until a recent spate of outbreaks struck Vinh Long and seven other southern provinces in January, killing or forcing the slaughter of about 40,000 birds.

Thousands of birds culled after H5N1 outbreak in Lhasa


AP, BEIJING
Thursday, Mar 08, 2007, Page 5 Bird flu has struck a poultry market in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, prompting the culling of nearly 7,000 birds, the government and state media said.
The outbreak of the deadly H5N1 virus, which began last Thursday in Lhasa's Chengguan village, killed 680 chickens and prompted the culling of 6,990 birds, according to a Chinese government report on Tuesday that was posted to the Web site of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
MARKET CLOSED
The Beijing Youth Daily reported yesterday that the market had since been shut down and authorities were trying to determine the source of the infection. It was possible that the chicken were infected through contact with migrating wild birds, it said.
The government report, submitted by China's Ministry of Agriculture, also gave details of five H5N1 bird flu outbreaks among migratory birds in Tibet and neighboring Qinghai in April and May of last year.
The five outbreaks killed 3,648 birds, including bar-headed geese, brown-headed gulls, crows, hawks and other wild birds, it said.
Chinese state media reported on the earlier outbreaks last year but did not give specific details.
BIRD MIGRATION
Qinghai is a known transit point for migratory birds, and the virus killed thousands of bar-headed geese at a nature reserve in the province in mid-2005, raising fears that the virus was on the move, jumping among hosts in the wild.
Researchers believe that wild birds from that region may have carried the virus along migratory paths into Russia and elsewhere.
Last week, China reported a new human case of bird flu in the coastal province of Fujian, where a 44-year-old farmer surnamed Li was diagnosed on Feb. 18 after she developed a fever and began coughing.
HUMAN CASES
It was the first human case of bird flu since Jan. 10, when the government said a 37-year-old farmer in Anhui Province in eastern China had contracted bird flu but had recovered.
The H5N1 bird flu virus has killed at least 167 people worldwide since it began ravaging poultry stocks across Asia in late 2003, the WHO said.
Experts fear that the H5N1 virus may mutate into a form easily passed between humans, sparking the world's next deadly pandemic.

I'm a biology major and science has always been my best subject... not that it really matters here. The Pit is a forum of educated opinions. It just so happens that the evidence I place the most value upon and my personal beliefs support a different opinion from other people

Bird flu prompts destruction of turkeys in Pendleton
Quote:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. More than 25-thousand turkeys on a farm in Pendleton County, West Virginia are being destroyed after some of the birds tested positive for avian flu.
State agriculture officials said the strain of the disease is not harmful to human beings. But the birds are being destroyed to prevent the virus from mutating and spreading.

Officials did not identify the farm.

Poultry farmers in several counties along -- or close to the Virginia line -- Pendleton, Hardy, Grant, Mineral and Hampshire -- are being told not to move the litter at their farms. The litter is the bedding material where the birds roost. It's sometimes used as fertilizer or thrown away.

This strain of avian flu is the same one that caused an outbreak in Virginia in 2002. Since then, routine tests have been done on flocks before they're slaughtered.
