This is what Bush is doing to our Freedoms and Country!
 
I hope it doesn't kill more than 20 people this year. That would indicate that it is growing.

SARS was a huge hit... massive 500,000 person concert in Downsview.... I don't think the avian flu will ever reach the same level of fame. "ALLRIGHT EVERYONE Avian Flu Stock...... yeah."

France reports 11 new H5N1 cases



Thursday, March 2, 2006; Posted: 11:38 a.m. EST (16:38 GMT)

PARIS, France (AP) -- France reported 11 new cases of H5N1 bird flu in wild birds on Thursday in an area already hit by the lethal virus.

Laboratory tests detected the virus in a heron, a duck and in nine swans, raising to 29 the total number of cases found among wild birds in the southeastern Ain region, the farming ministry said in a statement.

Earlier authorities in Germany confirmed a cat had been infected with the deadly H5N1 strain.

The virus was discovered in a cat found dead on the island of Ruegen, in northern Germany, said Elke Reinking, press officer at the Friedrich Loeffler Institute on the island of Riems in northern Germany.

Bird flu concerns rising

'No one can say when this will end,' expert says

March 7, 2006


BY ALEXANDER G. HIGGINS

ASSOCIATED PRESS





GENEVA, Switzerland -- The lethal strain of bird flu poses a greater challenge to the world than any infectious disease, including AIDS, and has already cost 300 million farmers more than $10 billion in its spread through poultry around the world, the World Health Organization said Monday.

Scientists say they also are increasingly worried that the H5N1 strain could mutate into a form easily passed between humans, triggering a global pandemic. It already is unprecedented as an animal illness in its rapid expansion.

Since February, the virus has spread to birds in 17 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Mideast, said the WHO's Dr. Margaret Chan, citing UN Food and Agriculture Organization estimates of the toll on farmers.

"Concern has mounted progressively, and events in recent weeks justify that concern," said Chan, who is leading WHO's efforts against bird flu.

She told more than 30 experts meeting in Geneva that the agency's priority is to keep the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu from mutating.

"Should this effort fail, we want to ensure that measures are in place to mitigate the high levels of morbidity, mortality and social and economic disruption that a pandemic can bring to this world," she said.

WHO says 175 people are confirmed to have caught bird flu, and 95 of them have died.

"No one can say when this will end," Chan said.

Global influenza pandemics -- as opposed to annual recurrences of seasonal flu -- tend to strike periodically. In the 20th Century, there were pandemics in 1918, 1957 and 1968.

WHO said bird flu could potentially cause more deaths than those from the global flu pandemics.

Because the H5N1 virus is airborne, it's easier to transmit and much more contagious than HIV/AIDS, WHO officials said.

"We truly feel that this present threat and any other threat like it is likely to stretch our global systems to the point of collapse," said Dr. Mike Ryan, WHO's director of epidemic and pandemic alert and response.

This is the first time world health authorities have tried to stop a global influenza pandemic before it begins. Chan referred to the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, as evidence of "how much the world has changed."

SARS infected 8,000 people, killing 800 of them.

"In a globalized economy, with high volume of international travel, vulnerability to new disease threats is universal," Chan said. "It is the same for the rich and for the poor."

H5N1 and H9 Bird Flu Confirmed in Afghanistan Recombinomics Commentary
March 16, 2006

Tests conducted in Italy confirmed the outbreak of deadly subtype of H5N1 virus of avian influenza in Afghanistan, a spokesman of UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said Thursday.

Six samples tested in Italy indicated the same results, he said, adding that the samples had been taken from different part of the country including the capital Kabul.

To become sure about the possible outbreak of the disease, the Ministry had sent 321 samples to the laboratory in Povado, Italy last week for further test. One case among them was positive against H7 subtype of influenza virus and 37 for H9.

The above comments indicate H5N1 is widespread in Afghanistan. However, the data indicate H9 is also widespread in Afghanistan. The H9 isolates are likely to be H9N2, which have been reported in the Middle East, India, and Pakistan previously.

The number of recent H9N2 sequences at GenBank is limited. Sequences from Israel contain donor sequences that can recombine with H5N1 to form S227N on HA. S227N is know to increase the affinity of H5 for human receptors and has been detected in the index case in Turkey. The H5N1 sequences from Iraq did not contain S227N. However, the sequence from a 15 year old girl did contain N186S, which is near the receptor binding domain. Donor sequences for N186S were not found in a search of the Los Alamos database, but the number of H9N2 sequences from the area is limited.

The report of H9 co-circulating with H5N1 in Afghanistan raises the possibility of recombinations in Afghanistan that would be also produce S227N.

Sequence data on current H9N2 isolates in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and other countries in the Middle East would be useful.

Recombinations involving H5N1 and other isolates are quite predictable, but rely on a complete and current database. Several references labs, including those from Russia, Italy, France, and Egypt have placed sequences in public database as soon as they were generated and checked for accuracy.

In contrast, labs at Weybridge and Hong Kong have placed sequences in a private database maintained by WHO. These sequences are released upon publication, which can create delays of 6-12 months. Some sequences recently deposited by St Jude were collected in the 1970ís and 1980ís. Yesterday TIGR/St Jude dep
osited the full sequence of WS/33, the first human influenza sequence isolated. The isolation was in 1933, so the delay in release of sequence from date of isolation was over 70 years!

Efforts to update the database via the NIAID flu blueprint are to be applauded. However there are many partial H5N1 and H9N2 sequences that are missing regions demonstrating recombination, and these sequences should also be filled in and placed in the public domain.

The sequence database is useful for predicting future evolution of H5N1, but the as noted above, many important sequences are not being released in a timely manner.

Denmark says tests found H5N1 in wild buzzard
16 Mar 2006 12:33:18 GMT

Source: Reuters
COPENHAGEN, March 16 (Reuters) - Danish authorities said on Thursday that tests showed a wild buzzard found south of Copenhagen carried the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu virus.


Denmark's first case of the highly pathogenic bird flu virus was announced on Wednesday.


"It is H5N1," an official at the Danish Institute for Food and Veterinary Research told Reuters.


The dead bird was found earlier this week near the town of Naestved, about 70 km (44 miles) south of the Danish capital Copenhagen in the southern part of the island of Zealand in a wetland area with many migrating birds.

WHO officer in China helps to hide bird flu?

(Mar. 08, 2006) Boxun published a message sent by anonymous person(full text in Chinese), it says that WHO officer in China received bribery and help China government to hide the seriousness of bird flu in China.

Boxun claims that it cannot confirm the information at the beginning of the publishment, then publishes its full contents as it received.

It mentioned that WHO received dead birds (sample) in 2005, and WHO officer released the person's name to government. It said that two persons were executed in February 27 2006.

The message says bird flu has caused 820 deaths in China since summer 2005.

Note by Boxun editor:
One public clue may help understand the situation: the WHO officer in China supported and agreed the official data release by China government. While the scientist in Hong Kong - Guan Yi denied the official data with many solid evidences. In theory, WHO officer in China should have more direct information than a scientist in Hong Kong.

As the biggest citizen journalism site in Chinese, Boxun is largely supported by volunteers, and we do not have the resources to translate its full contents. The quality of translation is also problematic (sometime). Please understand us. (boxun.com)

Israel finds H5N1 in birds on two farms
Fri Mar 17, 2006 6:39 PM ET

By Yehuda Peretz

BEERSHEBA, Israel (Reuters) - Israel detected its first cases of H5N1 bird flu on Friday, saying the virus had killed thousands of turkeys and chickens on two farms.

Israeli authorities treated four people in hospital amid fears they had the virus, but Israeli media reported late on Friday the Health Ministry said none of the four poultry workers were suffering from bird flu.

Serbia said three children and a teenager from a bird flu affected area were in hospital after developing fever and flu-like symptoms.

Bird flu has spread with alarming speed in recent weeks across Europe, Africa and parts of Asia, stoking fears the virus could mutate into a form that could easily pass from one person to another, triggering a pandemic in which millions could die.

Three people who worked in poultry coops at Israeli farms where the virus was discovered were admitted to isolation units at Soroka Medical Center in the southern city of Beersheba.

A fourth worker who had also been in contact with turkeys at a farm about 70 km (45 miles) further north near the town of Kiryat Gat was admitted to hospital in Ashkelon.

Two farms were confirmed to have infected poultry. Tests were being carried out on another two farms where H5N1 is suspected.

Agriculture Ministry officials said that starting on Sunday morning, tens of thousands of fowl in the infected areas and their surroundings would be culled and that the carcasses would be buried in underground pits.

In a rare act of cooperation, Israel was also testing dead fowl found in the West Bank and Gaza on behalf of the Palestinian Authority to try to control the spread of the virus.

SERBIAN CHILDREN The four youngsters in hospital in Serbia come from a southwestern area close to the Bosnian border, where there was a suspected case of the deadly H5N1 strain in a cockerel. Continued ...
