Health precautions advised people influenza A/H5N1 outbreaks again

(VnMedia) - Height 12 thirds, Department of Preventive Health and Environment official confirmed cases positive for influenza A/H5N1 virus in Hanoi in the first year after the Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology central review confirmed the results testing positive for influenza A/H5N1 virus on 11 / 3

Influenza A/H5N1 virus is pathogenic back stronger!

Saturday, March 13, 2010, 8:16

>> In case the first positive for influenza A/H5N1 in Hanoi

TP - In just over two months of 2010, Vietnam had four patients with influenza A/H5N1, one patient died. Ministry of Health to receive, H5N1 virus has returned with more powerful destructive power.

Patients T. (Soc Son, Hanoi) are treated in scientific treatment of positive, Bach Mai Hospital (photo taken at 12-3). - Photo: Xuan Phu

Dr Le Quynh Mai - Dean Virus (National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology Surgeons) said that the latest research by specialists of the Institute of Epidemiology showed that the isolated more than 300 influenza A/H5N1 virus in poultry and patients in Vietnam, up to at least seven antigens on avian influenza.

Scientists have discovered the exchange and integration between the influenza A/H5N1 virus circulating in our country, as recorded by the evolution of the gene segments of genes between different virus.

This is the reason to create a new virus on line poultry in Vietnam, rather than exotic virus.

Particular, new research has pointed out so fast evolution of influenza A/H5N1 virus and the vaccine is highly pathogenic.

Experts have discovered a number of changes of antigen reduces the sensitivity of influenza treatment.

Dr. Mai concern the increasing trend of change of the pathogenic H5N1 virus will cause danger to public health.

Epidemiology specialists are concerned, may in future will be a new virus, generated from recombinant strains of old.

Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga - Director of Department of Preventive Health and Environment (Ministry of Health) said that the risk of avian influenza outbreak on a strong back is easy to happen, because people in many places, special special population in areas still far from slaughtering and eating infected poultry.

Department of Animal Health said, the country is still six provinces including Ca Mau, Nghe An, Dien Bien, Khanh Hoa, Tuyen Quang and Ha Giang with bird flu has 21 days.

According to Department of Animal Health representative, a few years, not avian influenza outbreak has many strong local subjective in prevention.

Russia received the TS, winter-spring weather favorable for virus development, while Vietnam is at the same time is the existence of influenza A/H1N1 virus, Influenza A/H5N1 in humans, and avian influenza is very easy to make translated into many local spread.

Risk of influenza A/H5N1 service before spreading, the Health Ministry continues to make strong recommendations about preventive measures.

Accordingly, people must be absolutely done cooked food, drink boiling, do not use, contact with infected birds, cleaning their hands after contact with poultry.

Along with that, step up surveillance of avian influenza, prevent trafficking, transport and slaughter poultry not through quarantine.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Health report, Hanoi has a A/H5N1 flu patients. Female patients, aged 25, residing in Phu Ninh commune, Soc Son District. Disease onset 5-3 days 38oC with fever, cough, sore throat, headache, shortness of breath.

7-3 days, the patient to the hospital North Thang Long examination and diagnosis of suspected pneumonia virus. Here, patients were treated drug-resistant virus, antibiotics help.

However, 10-3, more severe disease progression, the patient was transferred to Bach Mai Hospital. There are ventilation patients, active treatment at the Faculty of treatment of active - Bach Mai Hospital.

Initial epidemiological investigation showed that from early May 3-2010 far, the area around the patient is sick birds / dead scattered. On 11-3, Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology Surgeons confirmed test results positive for influenza A/H5N1 virus.

WHO Update: Egypt - H5N1 Case #105 & #106

Avian influenza - situation in Egypt - update 32

12 March 2010 -- The Ministry of Health of Egypt has announced two new cases of human H5N1 avian influenza infection.

The first case is a 20 year-old pregnant female from El Khanka district, Qaliobia Governorate. She was hospitalized on 5 March where she received oseltamivir treatment and died on 9 March.

The second case is a 1 and a half year-old male from Elhamool district, Kfr Elsheikh Governorate. He was hospitalized on 2 March, where he received oseltamivir treatment. He is in a stable condition.

Investigations into the source of infection indicated that the two cases had exposure to sick and dead poultry.

The cases were confirmed by the Egyptian Central Public Health Laboratories, a National Influenza Center of the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance Network (GISN).

Egyptian authorities have also reported the death of a previously announced case; the 53 year-old male from Shobra Elkhima district, Qaliobia Governorate who developed symptoms on 27 February.

Of the 106 laboratory confirmed cases of Avian influenza A(H5N1) reported in Egypt, 32 have been fatal.

Risk of outbreak of influenza A (H5N1)

2:05 on 13-03-2010
'In people i'm guessin since it's already wide open season on the birds there?
ND - The Department of Health Preventive and Environment (Ministry of Health), on 12-3 confirmation of cases positive with the virus influenza A (H5) in Phu Ninh, Soc Son district (Hanoi). Patients are ventilation, treatment positive at the Faculty of treatment positive - Bach Mai Hospital. Investigate the epidemiology original shows, early March, the area around the patients had bird sick or dead scattered. On 11-3, Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology Surgeons confirmed test results positive for the virus influenza A (H5). Thus, from the beginning of the year, the country has had four cases of influenza A (H5N1), in which one person died and a case of being treated positively.

Prof., Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga, Director of Department of Health Preventive and Environment received the, translated influenza A (H5N1) in people at risk of outbreak back to the sense of prevention of the people is not high, especially in a some local areas far still status slaughtering and eating of poultry diseases. After investigating epidemiology, most patients with a history of exposure to poultry disease. Meanwhile, the situation translated influenza in poultry in our country still appear scattered. Notified by the Department of Animal Health (Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development), currently, both countries six provinces: Ca Mau, Nghe An, Dien Bien, Khanh Hoa, Tuyen Quang and Ha Giang with avian influenza less than 21 days. Nghe An Province is the latest recognition service influenza in poultry (on 28-2). Experts also are concerned, the existence of influenza A (H1N1), influenza A (H5N1) in humans and avian influenza, along with the weather winter spring are favorable conditions for the flu virus to develop and progress spread to many localities. With the existence simultaneously of the virus H1N1 and H5N1, requires monitoring closely the situation in epidemiology and conducting research for the risk of a combination of two viruses, the variables are the virus more pathogenic dangerous than very high.

Meanwhile, at the National Conference of activity prevention and pandemic influenza in humans, Dr Le Quynh Mai, Dean viruses, Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology Surgeons said, through isolated more than 300 micro - virus influenza A (H5N1) in poultry and patients in the local experts have detected at least seven antigens in the virus bird flu since the viruses have in our country . The research team noted approval evolution of segments of genes between the genetic variations of flu virus, also detected with the exchange and integration between the virus influenza A (H5N1) circulation in our country ...
The analysis of molecular genetic material-virus influenza A (H5N1) in our country is that evolution is too fast the virus and are under strain highly pathogenic, with the change of antigen reduce the sensitivity of treatment flu. This is a matter dangerous to public health by the forecast of experts is not soon, then later, a new virus may appear from the recombinant of the vaccine viruses old and triggers a pandemic to the extent unpredictable.

Influenza A/H5N1 and H1N1 outbreak strong risk

Saturday, March 13, 2010, 1:45 (GMT +7)

(VNA). - Influenza A/H5N1 virus is evolving with more pathogenic, A/H1N1 influenza pandemic remains difficult to predict evolutions ... This is the information given at the National Conference results in prevention of pandemic influenza 2009 and implementation in 2010 held in Hanoi on 12-3.

By PGS-TS Nguyen Huy Nga, Director of Department of Preventive Health and Environment, in 2009, the country recorded only five cases of influenza A/H5N1 and all five of these questions were fatalities. Entering 2010, only three months of the year but the country has to influenza A/H5N1 infected four people, including one case of female patients age 38 die in Tien Giang.

More worryingly, experts have discovered at least seven group antigens on avian influenza since the virus is present in our country. This is a very dangerous issue for public health because the forecast of experts, the virus can occur from recombinant strains of old and trigger a pandemic with the degree unpredictable.

Before practice, the Director General Nguyen Huy Nga said that, not too difficult to predict service influenza A/H5N1 in humans at risk of outbreak of strong returns in the near future. Therefore, the Steering Committee for pandemic influenza prevention at all levels should promote activities to monitor and inspect. Strengthen monitoring of cluster cases in the community, aimed at early detection of suspected cases of influenza A/H5N1 and H1N1, implement isolation and treatment in time, limiting the spread. About the people must be absolutely done cooked food, drinking boiled, not trade, transport and slaughter poultry not through quarantine, aquatic bird influenza illness die.

12-3 pm, Department of Preventive Health and Environment has announced recognition of cases positive for influenza virus A (H5) in Hanoi. Accordingly, a female patient, 25 years old, residing in Phu Ninh commune, Soc Son District, Hanoi, onset 5-3 days. Currently, patients receiving mechanical ventilation, positive treatment in Bach Mai Hospital.

Bill proposes 'stormtroopers' to enforce health laws

HEALTH officials in gas masks bashing through front doors is the kind of scenario usually reserved for sci-fi movies.

But it is now a reality that health planners warn the public must prepare for as the state confronts a bewildering array of modern public health issues.

The proposed South Australian Public Health Bill, with its new tough stand against everything from the obesity epidemic to swine flu, sent shockwaves through the public health sector when released late last year. Experts now have had the chance to respond to the draconian measures, and some warn individual rights are being overlooked.

The 59 responses released by the Health Department this week show the plan has received a mixed reaction from health professionals and those who must implement the new measures. Many concerns will make their way into the final legislation.

The Bill, which reviews the outdated 1987 Act and has been in the pipeline since 2000, includes ideas as diverse as using public transport to stop obesity and locking up people to stop a disease outbreak.

When the current Act was written, attempts to stop the spread of AIDS were limited to TV commercials, the obesity epidemic was only being revealed in scientific journals and many of the threats were unknown or little known. Think meningococcal, swine flu, bird flu, SARS, terrorist anthrax attacks or mad cow disease.

Desperate times require desperate measures, advocates argue. The gas-masked official storming through your front door would be the new all-powerful Chief Public Health Officer, or one of his deputies, and for this scenario to occur, you would have to pose an extreme threat to the health of others.

The Bill says: "For example, they can ask questions, inspect articles or substances found in a premise or vehicle, remove samples, require papers, books or specifications to be produced, examine, copy or take extracts, and so on. They may forcibly enter any premises or vehicles if they have a magistrate's warrant."

The unelected Chief Public Health Officer even can step in and take over the powers of a democratically elected council as they relate to the public health issue at hand - for example, the collection of waste.

Prevention of public health disasters is another focus of the changes.

Local councils are expected to bear the brunt of the new workload, but not without warnings that some will not cope and will need more funding.

Modernising the haphazard immunisation strategy - now provided by doctors, councils and the state - is the best example.

The State Government will expect councils to take over running of the scheme. In response to that proposal, the Flinders Ranges Council wants to know how its handful of staff will cope. Its health officer is shared with three other councils.

"The Flinders Ranges Council believes this is merely another cost-shifting exercise on behalf of the State Government," chief executive officer Colin Davies wrote in his submission, echoing the view of numerous council complaints.

The Heart Foundation's Kirsten Potoczky was one of many to point out the limitations councils may have in influencing preventable health epidemics such as obesity.

The South Australian Council of Social Service is one of many organisations that finds the increased powers of detention too extreme.

"SACOSS shares the concerns of member organisations that the powers of authorised officers are too broad and thus problematic," senior policy analyst Tom Stead warns.

Anti-AIDS lobby groups also have concerns about the power of the CPHO, which includes the right to order HIV-testing of people feared to be a public health risk.

Pending the state election outcome, the Bill could be debated in Parliament by mid-year.

Risk of new flu outbreaks

(Source: Reuters)

(ANTD) - Experts said that epidemiology, influenza A/H5N1 virus in the country is changing so fast and increasingly dangerous. Meanwhile, the risk of this disease outbreak back on the people in our country is also visible when the sense of prevention of the people remain poor.

Hanoi is the first patient

Following four cases were identified positive for influenza A/H5N1 in the southern provinces, where a patient died, in turn Hanoi patients first recorded influenza A/H5N1 infected in 2010. According to report from the Department of Preventive Health and Environment - Ministry of Health on 12-3, just one new patients were confirmed positive for influenza A/H5N1 female, age 25, in the Phu Ninh commune (district of Soc Son , Hanoi).

Patients with this disease onset 5-3 days with symptoms of high fever 38 C, with cough, sore throat, headache, difficulty breathing. 7-3 days, the patient visit at BV North Thang Long and pneumonia was diagnosed by the virus, treated with antiviral drugs, antibiotics do not help but support. On 10-3, disease progression and worse patient is brought to BV Bach Mai, is still in mechanical ventilation, treatment of BV positive at this.

After receiving reports of cases, the preventive health center Hanoi held chemical spray sterilizing the area around the patient, and conduct epidemiological investigations, sampling and seven people have close contact with patients taking preventive medications. Public sector patients is independent between the neighbors, near which there are 2 small chicken farms, households in the hamlet were also breeding poultry. From early March until now, the area around the patient is sick birds, dead scattered. In a patient also has adopted seven chickens, one week before a child has died decomposition ...

About a month now, many countries around the world also noted the morbidity and mortality due to influenza A/H5N1 in some countries such as Indonesia and Egypt. Therefore, people need to seriously comply with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health prevention: implementation cooked food drink boiling; not use, contact with infected poultry; cleaning their hands after contact with poultry ...

Prof Nguyen Huy Nga - Director of Department of Preventive Health and Environment to receive, translate influenza A/H5N1 in humans at risk of outbreak back to the consciousness of people is not prevention, especially in some local areas remote, is still status slaughter and eat meat poultry. Through epidemiological investigation, most patients (about 95%) had a history of exposure to sick poultry.

Virus Signs of "oily" drug

Day 12-3, in National Conference on prevention activities pandemic of 2009, implementation took place in 2010 in Hanoi, Dr Le Quynh Mai - Virus Dean, Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology Central said that the influenza A/H5N1 virus evolved in our country are too fast and are of highly pathogenic strains.

From 2001-2007, there were nine types of the virus genes circulating in our country, including five new gene phenotype was discovered in 2007 and expression of the exchange, integration between the antigens of each gene. Dr. Mai also expressed concern because the H5N1 virus has made the change of antigens reduces the sensitivity of influenza treatment.

This is a very dangerous issue for public health by the forecast of experts, not soon, then later, a new virus may appear from recombinant strains of old and triggers a pandemic with unpredictable levels.

Also at the conference, several experts said that the existence of the time influenza A/H1N1, influenza A/H5N1 avian influenza in humans and, with winter weather - spring is a favorable condition for virus influenza developed and translated into many local spread.

Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga warning, the existence of H1N1 and H5N1 virus at the same time, requires monitoring the situation closely and conduct epidemiological studies for risk combination of two virus formed other pathogenic virus more dangerous is high.

Sudah ada 9 desa di Kecamatan Padang Guci Hilir yang sudah terserang virus flu burung. There have been 9 villages in the district of Padang's Vases Lower the bird flu virus. Agar tak terus meluas ke daerah lain, kita tetapkan siaga I, ungkap Bupati Kaur Drs H Warman Suwardi MM kepada BE kemarin. In order not continue to spread to other areas, we set the mode I, said Regent Drs Kaur H Warman Suwardi MM to BE yesterday.

Diakui Warman, pihkanya terus melakukan intruksi kepada Kepala Dinas Peternakan dan Dinkes, untuk segera melakukan penyemprotan di sekitar penyebaran virus flu burung. Recognized Warman, continue pihkanya instructions to the Head of Animal Husbandry Department and the health office, to immediately conduct spraying around the bird flu virus spreading. Terutama di 9 desa yang sudah terserang. Especially in the 9 who had attacked the village.

Jika nantinya masih ditemukan ayam dan unggas yang mati secara mendadak, maka tidak menutup kemungkinan statusnya akan ditingkatkan lagi menjadi gawat flu burung. If the future is still found in chickens and poultry that died suddenly, it did not rule out the status will be increased again to a head of bird flu.

Untuk itu kita lihat dulu perkembangannya dalam satu bulan masa siaga I ini, ujar bupati. For that we first see progress in one month standby time I was, said the regent.
Selanjutnya, penyebaran virus flu burung yang terdekteksi kecenderungan semuanya di pinggir sungai. Furthermore, the spread of bird flu virus all terdekteksi tendency on the riverbank.

Setelah ditelusuri ternyata masyarakat membuang bangkai ayam atau unggas di sungai tersebut dan bahkan menyembelih unggas dengan tidak dikubur atau ditanam, sehingga penyebaran virus flu burung terus meluas. After the waste was traced chicken or poultry carcass in the river and even slaughtering poultry by not buried or planted, so the spread of bird flu virus continues to spread.

Kendati demikian, Pemkab tetap akan mengupayakan perlindungan kepada masyarakat jangan sampai virus ini menyerang manusia karena sangat berbahaya.

Nevertheless, Regency will continue to seek the protection of the public do not let the virus infect humans because it is very dangerous.

Untuk mengantisiapsi penyebaran virus flu burung kita telah menggerakkan Satgas baik di kantor maupun di lapangan. To mengantisiapsi spread of bird flu virus we have both moved Task Force in the office or in the field.

Sementara selain 20 liter desinfektan yang merupakan stok Dinas Peternakan Kabupaten Kaur nantinya bisa dimanfaatkan oleh masyarakat untuk menjaga lingkunganya agar lebih bersih dan indah, terang Warman. Meanwhile, in addition to 20 liters of disinfectant that is stock Kaur District Animal Husbandry Department will then be used by communities to maintain lingkunganya to be more clean and beautiful, bright Warman.

Sementara itu, akibat menyebarnya virus Flu burung di Kecamatan Padang Guci, membuat masyarakat di sekitar menjadi resah. Meanwhile, due to the spread of bird flu virus in the district of Padang Vases, making people around became restless.

Warga pun diketahui sudah banyak yang menjual ayam dan unggasnya karena tukut terjangkit. Residents were known to have sold a lot of chicken and poultry because tukut infected.
Seperti yang diungkapkan Hen (27) Warga Linau dan Midir (34) warga Desa Muara Jaya. As expressed Hen (27) Citizens Linau and Midir (34) citizens of the village of Muara Jaya.

Mereka mengatakan menjual ayam dan unggasnya bukan karena takut virus flu burung namun mengatisipasi penyebaran virus yang belum ada obatnya ini. They said selling chickens and poultry not for fear of bird flu virus but mengatisipasi viruses that do not have this medicine.

Untuk ukuran besar kita jual perekornya Rp 50 ribu, dan bukan saya yang menjual ayam namun masih banyak ratusan dijual oleh masyarakat sekitar. For large size we sell perekornya USD 50 thousand, and not I who sells chicken, but it still sold by many hundreds of people around.

Sebagaian mereka merasa takut jika ayam mereka terinfeksi flu burung, ujar mereka berdua. Part of them feel afraid if they are infected chicken bird flu, they said. (823) (823)


[another mention of the virus liking the humidity..and the heat]

Within a month, the Health Ministry announced three consecutive new cases of influenza A/H5N1 in Khanh Hoa, Tien Giang and Tuyen Quang, including a child 3 years old and a new died. Article notably maps epidemiological disease fluctuates when disease is not only circulated in the North are high humidity, the virus that causes favorable development, but also appear in the southern provinces hot weather.

By MA. Nguyen Hong Ha, deputy director of the Hospital for Tropical Surgeons, disease manifestations after 3-4 days, new patients to the hospital examination and the disease was identified by phase early specific treatment, many patients with signs of respiratory distress must ventilation, multi-organ failure to carry out dialysis. Currently, the world has developed methods of resuscitation exmo (lung replacement) for the treatment of resuscitation for patients with respiratory insufficiency.

According to this method, the body will be given oxygen through the system outside the body. This means that the lungs of patients in respiratory distress phase will completely relax the body but still provide adequate oxygen demand. This method is also being made in promoting tropical disease hospital in the central and only hope that in near future, patients will have access and beneficiary benefits from this high-tech.

For avian influenza H5N1, is not disperse birds sick / die, the destruction must comply with strict means of protection such as gloves, pro, mask. Must make a special disinfectant, sterilizing the cages and not kill or eat more meat soup. When flu symptoms appear to be the basis of medical examination to determine diagnosis and early treatment, particularly to track the evolutions of the disease, especially respiratory function, circulation ...

The health system in the first line as communes and wards have noticed detect new cases appear to get medical diagnostic products identified influenza A/H5N1 or A/H1N1 influenza or complications to treatment promptly time, to avoid spreading the community. Although this time, influenza A/H1N1 service temporarily settled down but still appear avian influenza in some places as mentioned above should be wary of a new virus strain H5N1 combined with H1N1 is essential.

Eng. Nguyen Hong Ha said that the world as well as in Vietnam, the process of treating influenza A/H5N1 usually undergoes two phases: first phase of treatment is specific and early the next stage of treatment for feedback. If detected and treated early can be very good for recovery as well as the health of patients but this is difficult to implement because patients are not identified early because of the number of infected patients isolated, scattered, disease manifestations Now the same respiratory infection in the early stages (due to no epidemiological factors). Moreover, few patients have access to specific treatment.

S'pore buys 1m H5N1 shots

Mar 12, 2010

H5N1 bug could be a bigger killer than H1N1 if it mutates

By Salma Khalik, Health Correspondent

SINGAPORE has bought a million doses of a vaccine to protect the people here against the H5N1 bird flu.
The vaccine will arrive by the end of the year.
The bug is particularly scary for Singapore, which sits next to Indonesia, the country with the most cases (163) and deaths (135) from the virus. Vietnam, with the next highest number of cases (115) and deaths (58), is also nearby.
Both countries have already had one death each this year.
Unlike the H1N1 pandemic that swept the globe last year, the H5N1 bug could be a bigger killer by far if it mutates.
Of the 486 people reported to have been infected by H5N1 since 2003, 287 have died. This works out to an almost six-in-10 death rate.

CIDRAP: H5N1 avian flu virus reproduces in gut as well as lungs

The H5N1 avian influenza virus can replicate in the human gut as well as in the lungs, according to Chinese researchers writing in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. The researchers found viral antigen in samples of gut tissue from a patient known to have died from H5N1, and they also experimentally infected samples of human gut tissue with the virus in the laboratory. Unexpectedly, gut epithelium, like lung epithelium, turns out to contain specific areas where the sialic acid alpha-2,3 receptors to which avian flu viruses preferentially bind are expressed. The finding illuminates the gastrointestinal illness reported in some H5N1 victims, and also suggests that H5N1 may spread from person to person not only via the exhaled droplets that are the primary mode of transmission, but also via feces.

J Infect Dis. 2010 Mar 8;

The human respiratory tract is a major site of avian influenza A(H5N1) infection. However, many humans infected with H5N1 present with gastrointestinal tract symptoms, suggesting that this may also be a target for the virus. In this study, we demonstrated that the human gut expresses abundant avian H5N1 receptors, is readily infected ex vivo by the H5N1 virus, and produces infectious viral particles in organ culture. An autopsy colonic sample from an H5N1-infected patient showed evidence of viral antigen expression in the gut epithelium. Our results provide the first evidence, to our knowledge, that H5N1 can directly target human gut tissues.

Indonesia: Crisis Communication Determine Success

Wednesday, March 10, 2010 | 07:36 pm
ATLANTA, - Communication crisis in the health sector increasingly important as bermunculannya various infectious diseases that have the potential to be catastrophic, such as bird flu, severe acute respiratory syndrome or SARS, and influenza A-H1N1. A good crisis communication in the health sector in determining the success of control issues, including holding the spread of the disease.

It was stated communication experts from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) United States, Barbara Reynolds, in Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) Training, such as Indira Kompas reported Permanasari journalists from Atlanta, United States, Tuesday (9 / 3).

"With a good crisis communication, remains an increase in cases, but with a more sloping curve and then slowly down the number of cases. If there is no good public communication, cases tend to increase sharply in place quickly and then just come down after the treatment. However, the victim of spilled milk, "he said.

He said the health problems directly touches the lives of the people so that it appears a disease, let alone new infections, the public needs information related to the danger. In addition, steps can be done so that the disaster would not befall them, and how to care for themselves.

Responsibility in communicating to the public about the crisis, especially in the hands of government and related organizations concerned. Reynolds said, leaders at various levels to provide honest information with empathy about the situation to the public quickly. Information must also be constantly updated.

"Dishonesty in providing an explanation even backfire in the long run because people will lose faith," he said.

More dangerous, more Reynold, people then did not want to follow the medical recommendations given that control more difficult.

"People can see whether a leader who communicates honestly crisis or not," Reynolds said.

Failure to communicate a crisis to happen because so many comments from some experts that ended up confusing people.

Separately, a consultant Risk Communication World Health Organization, Jodi Lanard, said there are many dilemmas in crisis situations to communicate honestly to the public. It often happens because of various interests. However, the public interest to get honest information in the middle of crisis and uncertainty poor can not be ignored.

"The way to calm the people instead of saying that all the control on the first day, it was certainly hard to believe. Better to be truthful about the situation, "he said

Mar 8, 2010

Egypt launches new strategy to curb H5N1 spread
In the wake of rising human H5N1 avian influenza outbreaks, coupled with an increasing number of outbreaks in poultry, Egypt's health ministry said it is implementing new measures to curb the spread of the virus, including restricting the sale of poultry across governorate borders, the United Nations' Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN) reported today. The health ministry said it will also launch a campaign to warn the public about the risk of raising poultry at home and will stop vaccinating poultry, because the practice has not curbed the spread of the disease, according to IRIN. Egypt has reported several dozen poultry outbreaks so far this year, most of them in household birds. The country has also experienced a surge in human cases since the first of the year, with14 so far, including 3 deaths, according to a recent update from the World Health Organization (WHO). In other developments, Egypt's health ministry reported another H5N1 death, according to translated reports that appear today on the FluTrackers infectious-disease message board. The death appears to be that of a 53-year-old man from Qalyubia governorate whose illness was detailed in a Mar 4 WHO update. He had been listed in critical condition.

More black pepper recalled in Salmonella outbreak
A second company that supplied ground black pepper to the sausage company involved in a 44-state Salmonella outbreak has issued a recall, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported on Mar 5. Mincing Overseas Spice Co., Dayton, N.J., recalled black pepper lots 3258 and 3309, both involving 50-, 25-, and 20-pound cartons bearing the company name. The FDA said a sample from lot 3258 tested positive for Salmonella, and further testing was still under way to determine if it matched the outbreak strain of Salmonella Montevideo. Mincing and Wholesome Spice Co. of Brooklyn, N.Y., both supplied pepper to Daniele Inc., maker of salami and other sausage products linked to the outbreak (Wholesome previously recalled some pepper products). The FDA said it has also tested pepper samples from other customers that received pepper from Mincing and Wholesome. So far, two of those samples have tested positive for strains of Salmonella not associated with the current outbreak. The findings prompted Mincing's recall of lot 3309 and also prompted another company, Heartland Foods Inc. of Indianapolis, to issue a recall, the FDA reported. Heartland's Mar 1 recall notice covered all its coarse black ground pepper distributed between Oct 19, 2009, and Feb 17, and sold in 1-, 4-, and 8-pound containers. The FDA also said it is working on a spice risk profile that could lead to new guidance for the spice industry and FDA inspectors and possibly to new regulations.
