How bad is the H7N9 bird flu? We give you the scary answers

What changes are scientists seeing in the virus and why is this important?

A: Although it is not yet clear, the virus appears to have mutated in a way that would make it easier for it to adapt and grow at normal body temperature in mammals. Scientists are working to figure out which species could now be playing host to the virus, and one possibility is pigs.

Is there a vaccine?

A: No vaccine exists, but the World Health Organisation and its partners are already working to isolate and identify possible candidate viruses that could be used to make a future vaccine if necessary. However, it would likely take months to produce the first doses.

Scientists: China bird flu likely silent threat

"Scientists taking a first look at the genetics of the bird flu strain that recently killed two men in China said Wednesday that the virus could be harder to track than its better-known cousin H5N1 because it might be able to spread silently among poultry without notice."

[link to www.usatoday.com]
 Quoting: wintersway


This is what worries me about this flu. If it can spread through poultry without making them sick, it will make tracking and containing it very difficult.

CDC Deputy Director-General Chou Chih-hau (周志浩) said on Thursday that six people reported fever symptoms after arriving in Taiwan from China recently. Two of them were infected with the H1N1 influenza, two people had bacterial infections, while diagnoses for two people was yet be confirmed.

New Bird Flu Seen Having Some Markers of Airborne Killer
The new bird influenza that’s killed six people in eastern China has some of the genetic hallmarks of an easily transmissible virus, according to the scientist who showed how H5N1 avian flu could become airborne.

“That’s certainly not good news,” said Fouchier, who reviewed a gene sequencing of H7N9 published by Chinese health authorities. “This virus really doesn’t look like a bird virus anymore; it looks like a mammalian virus.”

“This virus is certainly of more concern than the vast majority of bird flu viruses,” Fouchier said. “Most bird flu viruses that we know do not have these mutations

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36972951


It's not just the flu, it's an animal flu.

Flu looks for throat cells to reproduce themselves.
Animal flu goes to the lungs to reproduce creating a cytokine flood that drowns the patient.

Flu goes to the lungs when a person is old or unhealthy.

Animal flu kills the younger and healthier person because they quickly produce cytokines, as they should, but are healthier and able to produce more, which causes them to drown basically.

Quicker decline and harder to combat before the patient is dead.

Not the same as flu

the five deadliest plagues in history:
[link to www.neatorama.com]
Problem is, they left a lot out- like the 25 million who have died of aids in the last 25 years- more than died during the black death.
 Quoting: SpiderJones


Yes but the black death(pneumonic plague) as opposed to the bubonic plague was airborne and highly contagious. AIDS isn't highly contagious or airborne, and generally can be prevented.

In northern Algeria a few years ago, they found bodies along the road and in a terrorist camp all dead from accidental release of black death.

We still get bubonic plague. In the US it's mainly in the west (Indian reservations, mountains) due to fleas on rats. We now have antibiotics that can kill it, but pneumonic plague kills too fast to get to antibiotics.

In this way it is similar to avian influenza. With bird flu you're basically dying before you realize that you don't just have a common flu.
