Schools Told to Prepare for Bird Flu

By BEN FELLER
The Associated Press
Wednesday, March 22, 2006; 7:48 AM


WASHINGTON -- The nation's schools, recognized incubators of respiratory diseases among children, are being told to plan for the possibility of an outbreak of bird flu.

Federal health leaders say it is not alarmist or premature for schools to make preparations, such as finding ways to teach kids even if they've all been sent home.


School boards and superintendents have gotten used to emergency planning for student violence, terrorism or severe weather. Pandemic preparation, though, is a new one.

They have a lot to think over, top government officials said Tuesday.

Who coordinates decisions on closing schools or quarantining kids? If classes shut down for weeks, how will a district keep kids from falling behind? Who will keep the payroll running, or ease the fear of parents, or provide food to children who count on school meals?

"Those are the kinds of issues that I don't think people have spent a lot of time talking about yet," said Stephen Bounds, director of legal and policy services for the Maryland Association of School Boards.

"But if New Orleans and Katrina taught us nothing else, it taught us you need to be thinking about things ahead of time _ and preparing for the worst," Bounds said.

The urgency is about bird flu, the name for the deadly H5N1 strain of the avian flu.

It remains primarily a contagious bird disease. Typically spread from direct contact with contaminated birds, it has infected more than 170 people and killed roughly 100. None of those cases occurred in the United States, but officials say bird flu is likely to arrive this year in birds.

As outbreaks have hit Africa, Asia and Europe, officials have launched campaigns to educate the public. To help stop the spread of the disease, farmers have killed tens of millions of chickens and turkeys.

Experts fear the virus could change into a form that passes easily among people.

In North Carolina on Tuesday, Education Secretary Margaret Spellings joined Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt to encourage schools to prepare. Spellings said schools must be aware that they may have to close their buildings _ or that their schools may need to be used as makeshift hospitals, quarantine sites or vaccination centers.

Human-to-human transmission of H5N1 highly unlikely, studies show
BEIJING, March 23 (Xinhuanet) -- H5N1 virus prefers to settle in cells deep within the lungs, rather than in the upper respiratory tract, as happens with human flu strains, two new studies have found.

H5N1 was much less likely to bind to cells in the upper respiratory tract, the Japanese-American team found. The virus colonizes a much deeper, tough-to-access region of the lung-- making infection more difficult to spread and treat in humans, the researchers said.

Jordan confirms 1st H5N1 bird flu outbreak
www.chinaview.cn 2006-03-25 11:56:19
Special Report: Worldwide fight against bird flu

AMMAN, March 24 (Xinhua) -- Jordanian Minister of Health Saeed Darwazeh confirmed on Friday that the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu had been detected, the first such outbreak in the country.

Darwazeh announced at a press conference that lab tests of samples from dead birds found Thursday on a private farm in Ajloun, north of the capital Amman, were positive for the H5N1 bird flu virus.

But the minister stressed that there was no human case in the country and that the spread of the disease was under control. A total of 20 people, who had been in contact with the infected birds, were given the Tamiflu antiviral drug as a measure of caution although all of them were tested negative for bird flu.

Darwazeh also said that the ministries of health and agriculture had taken all procedures to fight the disease, including the culling of birds on and around the farm and cordoning off the infected area.

Jordan is the latest country in the Middle East region to report the H5N1 bird flu outbreak.

Re-emerging in Asia in late 2003, the deadly disease has reached the Middle East, Europe and Africa, killing 104 people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Experts fear that the H5N1 strain of avian flu, currently jumping from birds to humans through close contact, might mutate into a form capable of easily passing among humans and thus spark a global human flu pandemic which might kill millions.

1st case of H5N1 confirmed in Serbia
www.chinaview.cn 2006-03-25 21:48:12

BELGRADE, March 25 (Xinhua) -- Serbia on Saturday confirmed its first case of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu in a rooster, agricultural officials announced.

The test results have been confirmed by the European Union reference laboratory in Weybridge, UK, a statement made by the Serbian Agriculture Ministry said.

The infected rooster was found on March 15 in an area near the Bosnian border, officials said.

As a precautionary measure, more than 30 people in the affected area were under intense medical supervision. In the meantime, veterinarians are monitoring all fowl in a 10 km radius.

The H5N1 strain has killed more than 100 people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Enditem
