That's parrot fever.

Not H5N1 bird flu.

One is viral.

One is bacterial.

The only relation is in some of the symptoms... which is also true for Anthrax, Hemmorhagic fevers and the common cold.

New bird flu outbreak in Pakistan

By Indo-Asian News Service on Tuesday, June 24, 2008
Filed Under: Health News
Pakistan has confirmed a new outbreak of avian flu in a poultry farm in the country’s northwest, The News daily reported Monday.

The virus was detected in Hamid farm in Swabi district of North West Frontier Province (NWFP) after its owner informed that 4,000 chickens died in the past days, the newspaper said.
The province’s livestock and dairy development department and the World Health Organization (WHO) officials said tests conducted in Islamabad laboratory on the tissues of the dead birds proved the presence of deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu.
The remaining 2,000 chickens were culled after the confirmation of bird flu outbreak. Another poultry farm was also sealed, the newspaper said.

Human beings have this tendency to react worse to crossover illnesses from animals with higher body temps and shrug off more easily crossover illnesses from animals with lower body temps.

viral or bacterial is irrelevant to my point

Bird Flu Roundup: Outbreaks in Arkansas, Indonesia, England

Bird flu — or avian influenza, to give it its proper name — is the kind of lurking threat that keeps public health officials awake at night. Luckily, it’s still in the “lurking” column, because the often-deadly disease is not easily contracted by humans, and as far as doctors can tell, it can’t yet be transmitted from person to person. But because the real threat is that the bird flu virus will mutate into a form that’s better at preying on humans, researchers keep a sharp eye on each flare-up, whether it’s an outbreak that annihilates a hen house or a cluster of human cases. In the past few days, researchers have encountered a bit of both.
In Arkansas, the poultry giant Tyson Foods has been busy slaughtering 15,000 hens that tested positive for exposure to a strain of bird flu. State officials say the birds came into contact with a less virulent strain of the virus, H7N3, which has been known to sicken humans, but hasn’t caused any deaths. The hens are being killed with carbon dioxide gas, and their carcasses are being buried to avoid spreading the disease.
Jon Fitch, director of the Arkansas’ Livestock and Poultry Commission, said officials have a “working theory” on how the hens came in contact with the virus. The speculation at this point in time was that a large group of Canadian geese made home on a pond very near this facility,” Fitch said. “Our speculation is someone stepped into some of those droppings and carried it into the poultry house” [AP News]. Sounds like a life lesson: Never underestimate the danger of goose poop.

Across the world, in Indonesia, health officials reluctantly announced the death of a 15-year-old girl last month from the dangerous H5N1 form of the virus. Indonesia has had the highest number of bird flu fatalities, a reported 109 out of 241 deaths worldwide. Epidemiologists have raised concerns about the spread of the disease in the Indonesian hot spot, although local health officials claim they have things under control.
[Indonesia’s health minister] said only 18 people have been infected in the first six months of 2008, compared to 27 during the same period in 2007 and 35 in 2006 — something she attributed to improved surveillance and public awareness. But the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization issued a critical statement in March, saying Indonesia’s efforts to control the disease in poultry are failing. The H5N1 virus is entrenched in 31 of the country’s 33 provinces and will continue to kill humans until it can be controlled in birds, it said [AP News].
Finally, an outbreak at a chicken farm in southern England has been called “highly pathogenic,” but only to chickens, not to humans — it’s another example of the less dangerous H7 virus strain. The flock is being slaughtered, and English agriculture officials temporarily banned the movement of live birds in the surrounding area, but those measures weren’t enough to reassure some poultry consumers; Japan and Hong Kong immediately suspended poultry imports from the United Kingdom.
But back to the lurking, insomnia-producing threat: Even though the H7 virus isn’t very dangerous for humans, scientists say it appears to be evolving in our direction.Flu viruses bind to a sugar on respiratory tract cells called sialic acid, which comes in several shapes. Last week US scientists reported that H7 viruses from recent poultry outbreaks in North America are starting to bind the human form of sialic acid, and losing their ability to bind the bird form. Even worse, an H7 was even isolated from a man with the flu in New York in 2003 and it bound most effectively to the human form [New Scientist blog].
Sweet dreams!

Is the U.S. Ready for Bio-Warfare?

By Erick Stakelbeck

CBN News Terror Analyst

July 9, 2008






CBNNews.com - WASHINGTON - Anthrax. Smallpox… these words were commonplace following 9/11 as potential weapons of terror against the United States.
Some experts believe a bioterrorist attack or pandemic outbreak could be inevitable. So how would the U.S. fight back against an infectious disease outbreak?
Hollywood Fantasy - or Grim Reality?
Picture this frightening scenario: a contagious virus breaks out in America's heartland. Spreading quickly, it overwhelms hospitals making thousands violently ill and killing hundreds.

Chaos rules the streets and the economy is in shambles.
Then our worst fears are confirmed: terrorists have released smallpox onto the American public.

No, this isn't a Hollywood blockbuster. It's an actual terror threat the U.S. government wants to be prepared to fight.

"We still need to beef up and get ready for when the next human being purposely infects himself or herself to come into the United States with an intention of either infecting humans or infecting our food source," said Frank Rapoport, a government consultant on bioterrorism issues.

Frank Rapoport helps the government with bioterrorism issues.
"After 1991, when 40,000 Russian scientists dispersed all over the globe because they were no longer employed by the Soviet Union - where do you think they went for employment, with the knowledge they have of how to weaponize e-bola, the plague, making a cocktail of the worst magnitude?" Rapoport challenged.
Some analysts believe former Soviet scientists sold this type of technology to countries like Iran, Syria and North Korea.

And then there's al-Qaeda. The Pentagon says the group has been pursuing biological weapons for years.
The most famous bio-terror case hit the U.S. shortly after 9/11 when anthrax was spread through the U.S. postal system.
Five people died and at least a dozen more suffered injuries after handling the contaminated mail. Investigators still don't know who was behind those attacks.
"I think most people in the bio-defense world are dumbfounded as to why we haven't seen more bio-terror attacks. It is too easy to manufacture bioterror threats. They can be manufactured faster than countermeasures can be developed," said James Joyce, head of Aethlon Medical.


Countermeasures
Countermeasures are Joyce's specialty. His small biotech company, Aethlon Medical, has developed a device called the hemopurifier.
"What the device does is it mimics your own natural immune response of clearing the viruses and toxins before cells and organs can be infected." he explained. "It's specifically designed to address viral pathogens that are bioterrorism or pandemic threats."

The hemopurifier is about the size of a rolling pin.
Here's how it works: the device is hooked up to a dialysis machine, then attached to a body part - an arm for instance. It then filters that infected blood - viruses and toxins -- out of the body, cleans that blood, and sends the purified blood right back into the bloodstream.

Joyce says the device's biggest benefit is that it can be used to counter different threats, rather than just one specific virus or disease.
"The focus moving forward into the future is really broad specturm therapies that have the ability to address multiple strains of bioterror and pandemic threats," he said. "If you were to talk to experts in bioterrorism, they would say it's probably 50 to 70 viral pathogens that could be weaponized as an agent of bioterrorism."
In 2004 the Project Bioshield Act encouraged large pharmaceutical companies to develop vaccines and countermeasures to a bioterrorist attack.
Those companies mostly fell by the wayside because there would be little or no profit for those products.

That provided an opening for companies like Aethlon Medical. In 2006, Congress granted more funding for products like the hemopurifier.
The Threat of a Pandemic Outbreak
While terrorists and rogue regimes may be able to get their hands on them, biological weapons like anthrax are extremely difficult to weaponize. And the government is producing a growing number of vaccines and medicines to combat the threat.
A more likely scenario is an outbreak of a naturally occurring pandemic disease.
"The more we have an international economy and the more people travel the more they will be exposed to new organisms. And they'll bring them back home," said Julie Fischer, an expert on biodefense and global disease threats at the Henry L. Stimson Center in Washington.

"Someone can get on a pl
ane in Bangkok and be in New York 17 hours later. That's not enough to build a defense. And as we learned from the SARS epidemic in 2003, it isn't just people in rural areas that would be affected," Fischer said.
The SARS epidemic started in China and spread to at least 30 countries, including the U.S. No vaccines existed and almost 800 people died after being infected.
Fischer says a pandemic outbreak of the H5N1 strain of influenza, or bird flu, may be the next major threat on the horizon. So is the U.S. prepared to deal with such a crisis?
Since 2002, the Bush administration has spent billions preparing for the effects of a bioterrorist attack or infectious disease outbreak. The government wants to stifle any potential outbreak before it even starts.

High-tech sensors have been installed in several American cities that can detect harmful airborne pathogens. Early detection may be able to save lives.
But at the end of the day, state and local governments may play the biggest role.
"People can't wait for the federal government to protect them," Fischer said. "If there is a biological attack, or if there is a pandemic, people will have to take reasonable steps to take care of themselves.

That means stocking up on water, canned goods and medical supplies, and being aware of the emergency plan for your community.

Bird flu hits northern Iraq


DAHUK, Iraq, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Thousands of chickens were culled in parts of Iraq as a strain of bird flu tears through the country's poultry industry, officials said Thursday. Luqman Tayeb Omer with the central veterinarian office in northern Dahuk province said several thousand chickens were infected with the H9 strain, the Kurdish Globe reported.
"More than 50,000 chicks were destroyed at two poultries in Sumail town (in Dahuk) because of the H9 strain of bird flu," he said. Though it does not pose a significant health threat to humans, as does the H5N1 strain, Omer urged poultry farmers and the general population to take precautions to contain any outbreak.
Omer said most of the infected chickens came from areas near the northern city of Mosul and urged the government to prevent more infections by preventing distribution from that region.
In the August edition of the magazine Science News, Daniel Perez with the University of Maryland, College Park, warns the H9 strain could pose a health risk if ignored, however.
"The H9 may be a silent virus that doesn't get noticed until it's too late," he said.
Iraqi Kurdistan had a similar experience in February 2006, when two people died from complications from H5 infections.

CDC Awards $24 Million for Innovative Pandemic Preparedness

by Anthony L. Kimery Tuesday, 30 September 2008
Addresses preparedness areas of concern raised by public health authorities As fears continue to grow over the emergence of a pandemic strain of influenza in the near future—mutations of several strains other than H5N1 have given rise to increased worry—a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) program has awarded $24 million to 29 state and local public health departments to fund 55 projects to come up with innovative approaches for influenza pandemic preparedness, including several preparedness areas of concern that have been raised by numerous public health officials and planners.
They include engaging the public in the public health decision-making process and better collaborative planning among healthcare providers to ensure the delivery of essential services during a pandemic.
These are just some of the vital issues pandemic planners across the nation have expressed concerns about, as HSToday.us and HSToday have reported.
CDC intends for the recipients to implement promising practices or to develop effective approaches and models that can be replicated nationally.
“What is learned from these projects can benefit everyone because it could improve national, regional and local public health detection and response to a pandemic involving influenza,” said Dr. Richard Besser, director of CDC's Coordinating Center for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response.
A total of 184 funding applications were submitted by state and local health departments in a competitive application process. Eligible applicants for the awards were limited to the 62 state, local and territorial public health departments that currently receive federal funding through CDC's Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Cooperative Agreement.
The 29 award recipients have one year to complete the projects, which begin on Sept. 30.
A list of the 29 award recipients and their projects can be found here.

Man Caught at Airport with 200 Birds in his Suitcase

by Josh Lew Sep 30th 2008 @ 2:00PM
A man was arrested at the airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil after 200 canaries were found in his suitcase. The smuggler is a resident of Brazil and had just gotten off a flight from Peru. Over 60 of the birds were dead. The others are being returned to Peru by a more humane means of transport. The man has been charged with animal trafficking and is currently being held by police in Sao Paulo.

The birds were found after a routine x-ray at a security checkpoint. They were stuffed into 4 cages inside a large suitcase. The deceased birds had succumbed to suffocation and dehydration.

Of more interest to authorities was the fact that the particular species of canary is considered invasive and would have posed a threat to similar birds native to Sao Paulo. Exotic bird smuggling is a huge problem worldwide. Not only are certain birds endangered or considered a threat to local wildlife, there is a risk of viruses and diseases, like H5N1, spreading because of the illegal importation of exotic birds.

Suspected Bird Flu Victim Dies
Publicado - Published: 01/10/2008
PHICHIT (Agencies).- A worker on a free-range duck farm died from bird flu-like symptoms in Pho Prathap Chang district yesterday, and health authorities put his 12-year-old son under close observation for signs of infection with the virus. Manee Mankhetkit, 48, was taken to the provincial hospital on Monday after he developed a high fever, suffered from a cough, sore throat, chest pains and breathing difficulties.

The man was treated in an isolated intensive care ward because he had come into contact with fowls. He was a hired hand at a duck farm which has more than 1,600 birds. Doctors pronounced him dead due to kidney and heart failure.

His 12-year-old son Sakda, who worked alongside his father, was taken to Phichit hospital yesterday. He too was put in an isolation ward for observation, and no visitors were allowed to see him.

Livestock officials have collected samples from the free-range ducks, which have being dying in big numbers over the past week, for testing for the bird flu virus.

Public health permanent-secretary Prat Boonyawongwirot said lab tests were being made on samples collected from the dead man's body to see whether he was infected with the deadly H5N1 virus as believed.

The results were expected to be released today.

Dr Prat said leptospirosis could also not be ruled out as a possible cause of death as the area was affected by floods.

There were reports of poultry, particularly free-range ducks, dying en masse in the district during the past week.
