Acording to Dr. Peiris, director of the Center of Influenza Research at the University of Hong Kong, in this next article, he sees H5N1 as now being a endemic problem for us all, and explains his reasons why.

H5N1 Called an Entrenched Threat to Human HealthBy: DOUG BRUNK, Family Practice News Digital Network

SAN FRANCISCO The pathogenic avian influenza A(H5N1) virus remains entrenched in poultry in many countries and is unlikely to be eradicated, according to Dr. Malik Peiris.

"Over the past 15 years the virus has spread through Asia and to part of Africa. Even this year there have been poultry outbreaks in about nine countries, especially in Egypt but also in Asia and Indonesia," said Dr. Peiris, director of the Center of Influenza Research at the University of Hong Kong. "That, I think, is the real cause for concern."

So far, human disease has been uncommon, but the potential for human exposure to H5N1 is massive, he said. The reasons for viral spread are multifactorial, including the prevalence of backyard flocks of poultry and game birds, which are extremely common in parts of Asia, and the fact that the virus can infect ducks. "These ducks are moved from paddy field to paddy field," he said. "They graze on fallen rice in these paddy fields, and they move the virus without any ill effect to themselves. Live poultry markets are also a reservoir and amplifier. Some lineages of this virus can be moved long distances through migration of wild birds, but it is not clear whether wild birds are a true reservoir of this virus."
