We recently reported two cases of H5N1 being detected in China, with one case tragically being fatal.

News now at hand is reporting that the second of these cases has also tragically succumed to this infection.

China reports year's 2nd fatal case of bird flu
--------------------------------------
A man in southwestern China has died of bird flu [avian A(H5N1) virus infection], health authorities said Saturday [?], becoming the 2nd fatality from the H5N1 virus this year.

The 31-year-old died in hospital in the city of Guiyang on Friday [?], the Guizhou province health department said in a statement, adding that no other human cases of avian flu had been reported in the province. Another city resident, a 21-year-old woman, died from the virus earlier this month. The Xinhua news agency said both of them had come into close contact with birds but it was not known if the cases were related

This next article reveals that H1N1 swine flu is quite widespread throughout Europe this flu season where it has travelled to Russia and has regrettably caused the deaths of two people there.

Laboratory analysis of two patients who died last week in hospital from complications of flu in the northern Russian city of Murmansk, revealed that the group belongs to the H1N1 virus, commonly known as "swine flu", reported the news agency Interfax.

More than 8,000 cases of influenza were reported officially in Murmansk between 11 and 17 February.

Well it would appear that our friends in China know the risks and more importantly how to approprately respond to them when it comes to infectous diseases.

This article relates to how China is responding to the recent outbreak of H5N1 in Cambodia.

It demonstrates how a responsible authority should behave at the onset of any threatening disease.

WHO would do well to heed their responsible protocols.

Health authorities said Monday that China has strengthened preventive measures against the possible arrival of highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) after five people from contracting the disease in Cambodia last month.

La Administración General de Supervisión de la Calidad, Inspección y Cuarentena (AQSIQ, por sus siglas en inglés) incrementará los controles de la temperatura corporal de todos los viajeros que entren en China vía Camboya, según un aviso publicado en la página web de dicho organismo. The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ, for its acronym in English) will increase the body temperature controls of all travelers entering China via Cambodia, according to a notice posted on the website of the agency .

This next report is of another confirmation of H5N1 in another region of Cambodia where the infected birds were ducks.

It is quite distressing just to have to report this news, and one can only ponder at the real pain that must be felt by the poor people that all this culling must mean to them.

Cambodia is really suffering this year and we can only hope that this current outbreak of H5N1 comes to a rapid end and very soon.

This next article is poorly translated but it also gives an insight that Vietnam is also having to deal with fresh outbreaks of H5N1 in their poultry flocks.

It appears from the story that there may be difficulties for some farmers to obtain sufficient quantities to abequately vaccinate their flock, with the resultant outbreaks occuring.

Hau Giang: Destruction of 150 human H5N1 bird flu

Department of Veterinary Department Hau Giang Truong Ngoc Trung said relevant agencies has carried out the destruction of nearly 150 chickens Mr. Vo Van Buol, in My Thanh village, Tan Phuoc Hung Phung Hiep, after tested positive for H5N1.

These days, in chicken farms in this area, with a total of 4,000 children also found the chicken begins to die, but with less number of people self-destruction.

According to data from the chicken farmers this report, up to this point had about 600 chickens died.

It is rare to find a story of H1N1 being present in the UK, but we see here where a Scottish lady has contracted this infection.

She was pregnant at the time of diagnosis, but a "C" section emergency delivery has seen the baby survive and remaining in good health.

Is so nice to have some good news.

From what Ive read, it would be pretty likely that India would have to be the nation most highly impacted by H1N1 swine flu this season so far.

Here is another article oullining their latest cases.

New Delhi: A total of 45 more people tested positive for swine flu on Sunday, taking the number of people infected by the Influenza A (H1N1) virus in the city to 759, an official said. There were no new deaths.

"Forty-five more people tested positive for swine flu but there have been no deaths today (Sunday)," a doctor at the Delhi Health Service (DHS) told sources.

So far, six deaths have been reported this month till Sunday. In January, 39 cases were reported and one succumbed to the virus.

A spurt in cases of swine flu has been seen in the national capital this year. In 2012, only 78 swine flu cases and one death were reported in the capital.

Re: <<Advancing Bird Flu-H5N1...Now following MERS and Ebola approaching PANDEMICS>>>
Its been a while since we took a look at the Euroflu stats, so here is the snap-shot for week 7 of 2013.

Virological surveillance for influenza

During week 07/2013 a total of 7044 specimens tested positive for influenza, with 4761 (68%) being influenza A (Fig. 1).



In week 07/2013, influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses remained the dominant A virus subtype: of 3568 subtyped, 2644 (74%) were A(H1N1)pdm09 while only 924 (26%) were A(H3N2) (Fig. 2a). These proportions of influenza A virus subtypes have remained stable for several weeks.

Since the beginning of the season (week 40/2012), 47 426 influenza viruses from sentinel and non-sentinel sources have been detected and typed. The relative proportion of influenza virus types has remained consistent since week 47/2012: cumulatively, 32 556 (69%) were influenza A and 14 870 (31%) influenza B (Fig. 2b). Of the 20 778 influenza A viruses that have been subtyped, 15 103 (73%) were A(H1N1)pdm09 and 5 675 (27%) were A(H3N2).

In addition, the lineages for 1905 influenza B viruses were determined: 1727 (91%) belonged to the B/Yamagata lineage and 178 (9%) to B/Victoria.


Circulation of influenza viruses in week 07/2013 remained diverse, with influenza A, mainly A(H1N1)pdm09, reported as the dominant virus in countries in northern, eastern and central Europe, Iceland, Portugal and Turkey, while influenza B was reported as the dominant virus in some countries in the southern part of the Region, as well as the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland) (Map 1). Between these areas, more countries than in week 06/2013 reported co-circulation of A(H1N1)pdm09, A(H3N2) and influenza B.

Well we have some good news and some, well itll be good in a while maybe.

This story speaks of research work being done here in Australia by our CSIRO scientists.

They are developing new ways to interfer with viral infection and spread, and the good news is that they might be on track with a new and promising treatment.

The "in a while" bit comes from the comment, "Researchers estimate it will take up to seven years before the drug is released.".

New Drug Developed to Combat Flu Pandemic
22 February 2013

AUSTRALIA - CSIRO scientists have helped to design a new drug to safeguard against epidemic and pandemic flu strains – as published in "Science".

The new drug has been proven to be effective in preventing the spread of different strains of influenza in laboratory models – including resistant strains of the virus.

Eight of the nine people died, along with thousands of birds in the villages where the victims lived.
"There was a lot of dead poultry, but the people did not report to (officials). In the villages that I went to, almost all poultry had died," Ly Sovann said, adding it took up to a month for officials to be told of poultry deaths in some areas.

The health ministry has enhanced surveillance to try to detect and treat avian influenza cases in the early stages, he said.
"We are also worried about (possible) human-to-human transmission of bird flu, but it is not the case now," said Ly Sovann.

China Alert for Bird Flu from Cambodia
26 February 2013
CHINA - China's quarantine authority has announced that it has ordered strengthened prevention against avian influenza H5N1 after the disease infected five people in Cambodia last month.
The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) will increase checks on the body temperatures of people traveling to China from Cambodia, according to a notice on the AQSIQ's website.
Travelers entering with fever, cough, headache or general malaise should report to the quarantine control department, said the AQSIQ.
People suspected of being infected will receive careful tests and be sent to medical institutions for further treatment, the administration added.
Local quarantine authorities will provide health services and education to international travelers to help them avoid being infected by the epidemic.
China will also strengthen sanitary measures against bird flu at customs. Vehicles, containers and goods from Cambodia will be put under strict quarantine upon entering China, according to the notice.
The preventive measures will be valid for three months, the AQSIQ said.
The Cambodian case of avian influenza has left four of the five infected patients dead, according to a report from the World Health Organization.

2013 Guizhou H5N1 Sequences Match 2012 Fatal Case
Recombinomics Commentary 19:30
February 25, 2013

The WHO Chinese National Influenza Center has released H5N1 sequences (at GISAID) from two recent cases in Guizhou Province. The agency is to be commended for the rapid release of these important sequences (full sequences for all gene segments except PB2). One set was from a fatal case (21 years old), A/Guizhou/1/2013, with a collection date of February 8, which would match the recently described fatal case (21F). The second sequence (A/Guizhou/2/2013) was from a February 9 collection from a 31 year old, which would match the case (31M) who recently died. Initial reports cited an absence of contact with poultry.

Both of the 2013 sequences are closely related to each other as well as the 2012 fatal case (39M) from Guizhou, A/Guizhou/1/2012. The H5 sequence from the 2012 has been described. It had a number of receptor binding domain changes flanking position 190 (A188E, A189T, T199I, I202V), as well as a cluster of changes around S133L. All of these features, which were noted in the 2012 sequence, are also present in the two 2013 sequences. All three sequences also gained a glycosylation site due to T219N.

Although these features are found in the three human sequences from 2012 and 2013, these combinations of changes are not found in any recent poultry sequences. A BLAST analysis of the H5 sequence, as well as the other 6 segments, yields closest relationships with H5N1 sequences from isolates collected 5-7 years ago.

The absence of matching poultry sequences, and the close relationship between all three human sequences, which had a more than 1 year gap between the 2012 isolate and the two from 2013, raise serious concerns over surveillance or human to human transmission.

A clarification on poultry exposure and the H5 status and sequence of such exposures would be useful.

H5N1 Avian Influenza has been positively identified at a German duck farm.

At this time there is no information on the origins of this outbreak.

My personal suspician is that the virus has been carried in by wild ducks that have been attracted to the resident duck population and vectored the virus to the farmed birds.

Date: February 25, 2013 Source: MedlinePlus [link to www.nlm.nih.gov] [Edited by Jaime Torres and Jorge González]

The German authorities said that a case of H5N1 bird flu had been discovered during initial testing at a poultry farm in the state of Brandenburg.

The case was discovered in a specialized in ducks, which conducted its own tests, said on Friday the Ministry of Agriculture of the State of Brandenburg.

The H5N1 virus mainly affects birds but can occasionally reach humans.

Experts fear it could mutate into a form that could spread easily among people, which has no natural immunity to it.

The initial finding was confirmed by a state laboratory and is currently undergoing final testing, said the state ministry.

The farm was cordoned off and your birds will be killed, the statement said.

The cause is unknown and an investigation began.

Mexico is again feeling the severe effects of another extreme outbreak of H7N3 bird flu.

This outbreak has spread extensively throughout several poultry farming enterprises, requiring devestating culling in attempts to contain this destructive outbreak.

Mexico City, Feb 25 (EFE).- Mexican authorities so far have slaughtered 2.1 million chickens exposed to the bird flu, which has spread to 18 farms in the central state of Guanajuato, government officials said Monday.

Agriculture Secretary Enrique Martinez said at a press conference that since the outbreak was detected 519,000 egg-producing chickens have been slaughtered, along with 900,000 birds being fattened for their meat and 722,265 reproducing birds.
