#Egypt: Commonground's Menoufia Commentary on #H5N1 #Birdflu

Menoufia has been coming up in the news as of late. Treyfish just posted an article that says they have had 7 suspected cases in various health centers since the beginning of this month.

I posted an article on a death from H5N1 Bird Flu, at least that is how I interpreted it.
A person by the name of Abdul Fattah Abu (51), from village Dberki of Menof. He was admitted on 1/18 at the Fever Hospital Shebin, and died on 1/21. The article said it was a "confirmed death from influenza emerging" which usually is referring to Swine Flu (H1N1).

The articles in Egypt are challenging to say the least. This particular article regarding the death was accompanied with a picture of them vaccinating poultry. Which swung me back to the H5N1, as opposed to H1N1.

They took samples from relatives and contacts, again, I'm not sure it is their protocol to do this in the event of Swine Flu H1N1.
The article can be found here

Another reason that I believe it is a H5N1 case, is because an article came out on 1/13, regarding 6 houses (hotbeds) of avian influenza in Menoufia. They named the owners of all 6 houses. One of the owners names is Abdul Fattah Ahmed. That name is very very close to the man that just died: Abdul Fattah Abu. Therefore, I think it was a H5N1 case.

My take is that the man, Abdul Fattah (56), was taken into a health facility. It was then, that they went back to his neighborhood. Did their surveillance, and the article on the 13th came out on the "hotbeds" (homes) with infected poultry. The Medical Convoy was sent out. The man died. Now we have 7 suspected cases.
The article that talked about the houses (hotbeds) can be found here

A Medical Convoy was sent there on 1/19. They were concerned about eradicating mosquitoes and flies...among other thing. Bringing plenty of medicine too. They were training 60 doctors and nurses on how to isolate patients with infectious diseases, and how to deal with them. Interesting....
That article can be found here

On 1/8, two people were suspected after surveillance of a culling. A 4 year old, and a 48 year old, from two different villages, Bjeerm Bakuesna and Quesna.
There were also 95 birds culled and the contacts of the birds were tested. These were from Shebin Ashmun and Obrkp seven Menouf Bagour and martyrs. Most of the birds were found inside homes.

On 1/5, I have a person with a questionable confirmation. Apparently there were not confirmed as they didn't make the list. The Director of Health Menoufia announced the discovery of a new case of bird flu. It was the owner of a Poultry Farm. A 36 year old, Yasser Abu Mansour Mahot, from the Town of Ashmoun.

6 chickens confirmed with highly pathogenic flu virus in Miyazaki

MIYAZAKI (Kyodo) -- Six chickens have been confirmed infected with a highly pathogenic avian flu virus at a poultry farm in Miyazaki City where dozens of birds were found dead, the Miyazaki prefectural government said Saturday.

The outbreak is the second at a poultry farm in Japan over the autumn and winter season following one in November in Shimane Prefecture, while wild and free-range birds have been found infected with the highly virulent H5N1 bird flu in Hokkaido and Tottori, Kagoshima and Fukushima prefectures since October.

The discovery in Miyazaki is yet another blow to the livestock industry of the southwestern prefecture, which was hit by bird flu in 2007 and a foot-and-mouth epidemic last year that led to the slaughter of about 290,000 cows and pigs.

Following the confirmation in detailed examinations early Saturday after the chickens tested positive for bird flu in Friday's preliminary tests, all the roughly 10,000 chickens at the farm will be culled, according to local government officials.

Six of the seven chickens tested, mostly from among the 36 chickens found dead when the farm reported the incident Friday, were infected with the H5 bird flu strain, the officials said, adding that 10 more chickens there died later.

In Tokyo, the government of Prime Minister Naoto Kan will call a task force meeting before noon to address the development with attendance by all Cabinet members except Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano, who is visiting Okinawa Prefecture, officials said.

The prefectural government has asked 51 farms within a 10-kilometer radius of the farm in question not to transport their chickens, which number 1.93 million, or eggs.

Based on samples sent by the local government, the National Institute of Animal Health in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, is to check whether the virus is highly virulent, prefectural officials said.

"The virus is very likely a highly virulent one. It is shocking as we have enhanced prevention measures such as patrolling farms," said Shusuke Iwasaki, a senior prefectural official in charge of livestock epidemic prevention, at a predawn press conference.

In a related development the same day, two pairs of Japanese crested ibises that were sent Friday from a conservation center on Sado Island in Niigata Prefecture arrived at another breeding enter in Izumo, Shimane Prefecture in a move aimed at preventing the endangered species from being wiped out by an outbreak of infectious disease.

The transfer was initially scheduled for early December but had been put off after the November outbreak of bird flu at a farm in Yasuki in the same prefecture.

20 nations vow to stop spread of pandemic influenza

[You know they aren't talking about H1N1!]

By Jay Ruiz, ABS-CBN News
Posted at 01/18/2011 3:21 PM | Updated as of 01/18/2011 3:21 PM

MANILA, Philippines - Representatives of more than 20 countries mostly from southeast Asia joined a 4-day senior leaders' symposium aimed at helping craft strategies and ways to stop and prevent the spread of pandemic influenza in case a crisis hits any of the participating nations.

Pandemic influenza is a generic term for any virus that spreads quickly among human beings, just like the AH1N1, bird flu virus, and swine flu virus.

According to Undersecretary Benito Ramos, administrator of the Office of Civil Defense, among the objectives of the symposium are to prepare countries to better integrate their militaries into their pandemic plans, and to come up a whole nation approach in preventing the virus from spreading in case it hits the country.

The symposium was jointly organized by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council and the US Pacific Command.

Burma: Bird flu outbreak forces poultry cull

Published: 20 January 2011
Thousands of chickens have been culled in western Burma after health officials detected an outbreak of the H5N1, or ‘bird flu’, virus.

Government newspapers announced on 17 January the outbreak of “a Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza [HPAI] strain” of the virus and said that measures had been taken to curtail the spread, which also included a ban of the sale of chickens and eggs in Arakan state.

Around 10 farms close to Lathamar village in Arakan state have been affected, although one farmer told DVB that a one-kilometre radius had been placed around the village, within which all farms must be treated.

“Some of the farms there have around 2000 chickens and some around 1000,” said the farmer. “The chickens were killed and then buried in a six-foot deep hole in the ground. The farms were sprayed afterward.”

He added that other farmers nearby had begun vaccinating their poultry in anticipation of the virus spreading.

Around 60 percent of the Burmese population is dependent on agriculture as a primary source of income, although the majority of this is focused in the rice industry.

In February last year around 2500 chickens were culled in a Rangoon division township following an outbreak of H5N1. Dozens of people were also taken ill last year shortly after Burma confirmed its first case of the H1N1, or ‘swine flu’, virus.

UK: Flu death toll doubles: As virus claims 254 lives, GPs face being stripped of their power to order jabs

By Sophie Borland
Last updated at 10:35 AM on 21st January 2011

The number of people killed by flu this winter more than ­doubled from 112 to 254 in the past week, figures revealed last night.

More than 90 per cent of victims had swine flu and the remainder influenza B or H2N3, the two other strains in circulation.

The sharp increase comes as the Government suggested that following this year’s shortages, it would strip GPs of the power to order flu vaccines.

The number of patients with flu in intensive care has also fallen to 418, compared with 661 last week.


According to the Health Protection Agency (HPA), which compiles the figures, it is usual for there to be a ‘lag time’ between the peak in infection rates and the highest number of deaths.

Professor John Watson, head of the HPA, said many of those who had recently died probably caught the disease during the height of the outbreak and their condition had rapidly deteriorated.

He also said that there was often a delay in hospitals reporting data, meaning many of the deaths recorded this week may have happened several weeks ago.

South Korea-Avian tuberculosis found for first time in 50 years

01-21-2011 18:38

By Lee Hyo-sik

A new animal epidemic is looming large here, following foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) and bird flu, as a group of chickens found dead at poultry farms in the eastern part of the country tested positive, Thursday, for avian tuberculosis, which had not been detected here for the past 50 years.

The finding has dealt a serious blow to quarantine officials and livestock farms, which have been working day and night to contain the spread of FMD and bird flu for more than a month.

According to quarantine officials, avian tuberculosis is a slow spreading chronic bacterial infection. There is neither treatment for infected birds nor vaccines to prevent the disease. Control can only be achieved through depopulation and proper sanitation practices, including rodent control and screening wild birds.

There have been no reported cases in which humans contracted the virus from eating infected meat or coming into contact with it. But those with a weak immune system could become infected.

The Gangwon Provincial Government said that three chickens found dead at a poultry farm in Gangneung had tested positive for avian tuberculosis. About 15 dead chickens at a nearby farm were also positive for the disease.

The owners of the infected farms said dozens of chickens died everyday over the past week, adding they notified the provincial government of the incident to find out why they died.

“We confirmed that the dead chickens died from avian tuberculosis. But to be 100 percent sure, we will ask the National Veterinary Research & Quarantine Service to redo the test. If it tests positive again, we will cull all 6,100 chickens and ducks raised in the two infected farms to prevent the spread of the disease,” a provincial government official said.

He said the latest outbreak is the first of its kind since 1961, adding the provincial and all municipal administrations will make every effort to stop the spread of the infection.

“Avian tuberculosis is not as fatal as bird flu. Also, it spreads at a much slower pace. But the problem is there are no known treatments for infected birds. No vaccines have been developed to prevent it either,” the official said.

The best preventive measure is to keep farms clean and minimize birds’ contact with the outside. Those infected must be destroyed.

“There have been no reports of humans being infected with avian tuberculosis. We strongly advise poultry farmers to make their farms off-limits to outsiders and regularly disinfect sheds. If unusual symptoms are detected in poultry, report it immediately to the provincial government,” he stressed.

HONG KONG, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- A dead large-billed crow found in Tai O, Lantau Island of Hong Kong was confirmed to be H5N1 virus positive, a spokesman for the city's Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department said on Friday.

The bird carcass was collected at Sun Ki Street, Tai O on Jan. 18. It was highly decomposed when found and required a series of tests before avian influenza was confirmed Friday.

The spokesman said the large-billed crow is a common resident bird in Hong Kong and there were no poultry farms within three kilometers of where the dead bird was found.

To minimize the risk of avian influenza outbreaks, he said, all relevant government departments would continue to remain highly vigilant and strictly enforce preventive measures against avian influenza, such as reinforcing health education and striving to deter illegal imports of poultry and birds into Hong Kong.

Disease outbreak cripples South Korea

Seoul News.Net
Friday 21st January, 2011

134,000 South Korean military personnel are engaged in combat against the disease.
Foot-and-mouth disease has broken out in South Korea causing a mass culling of millions of animals.

The South Korean military has been called in to help deal with the effects of the devastation, and to help stem the spreading of the disease. The military has already killed two million cows and pigs so far, and vaccinated tens of millions more.

The South Korean agriculture ministry advised on Thursday the current outbreak is the worst in the country's history.

The cost of dealing with the crisis has already soared well above $1 billion, the ministry said, largely through a substantial loss of exports.

129 cases have been confirmed since November 28 which has resulted in 22% of the swine population and nearly 4% of the cattle population being culled. Vaccinations are continuing across the country as the government tries to limit the number of animals that need to be destroyed, a CNN report said Friday.

The government introduced travel restrictions for livestock and ordered cattle markets to be shut shortly after the latest outbreak on November 28 in the southern city of Andong.

As a result, pork and beef imports are up and retail prices of both have risen almost 9% in just a month, the CNN reportt said.

The spread of bird flu is also putting pressure on South Korean farmers, with almost 4 million birds culled so far.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture describes foot-and-mouth disease as "a severe, highly contagious viral disease of cattle and swine."

WHO: Avian influenza - situation in Egypt - update 42

The Ministry of Health of Egypt has announced a new case of human infection of H5N1 avian influenza. A 1-year-old male from Alexandria Governorate, developed symptoms on 12 January and was hospitalized on 13 January. He is in a stable condition.

Investigations into the source of infection indicated that the case had exposure to poultry.

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

Of the 121 cases confirmed to date in Egypt, 40 have been fatal.

FMD means Koreans urged not to travel (or travel to Jeollanam-do) for Lunar New Year.

The Korea Times writes about local governments' efforts to discourage Koreans from travelling around the country this Seollal in order to prevent further spread of foot-and-mouth disease.
Many Koreans who work and live in Seoul and other urban areas were born and raised in the provinces. It is a decades-old tradition that they visit their hometowns to see their parents, relatives and friends at least twice a year ― the Lunar New Year (or Seollal) and Chuseok holidays.

But this biannual ritual may not materialize during the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday from Feb. 2 to 6 as the mass migration could cause the spread of foot-and-mouth (FMD) disease and bird flu to uninfected areas.

Since the first FMD outbreak was reported in Andong, North Gyeongsang Province, on Nov. 29, the deadly virus has spread to nearly all parts of the country, except for the southern regions ― South Gyeongsang Province, North Jeolla Province, South Jeolla Province and Jeju Island.

. . .
In a desperate attempt to stop the devastating epidemic, scores of provincial governments have launched a campaign to prevent people from traveling to other areas during the Lunar New Year holiday.

Among others, South Jeolla Province, which has seen not a single case of FMD, is asking those who plan to visit there during the five-day holiday not to do so in a bid to stop the spread of the highly infectious virus.

The provincial government has asked dozens of organizations made up of individuals born in the country’s southwestern province not to visit their hometowns.

``If we can prevent FMD from spreading to our area during the upcoming holiday, we are positive that South Jeolla Province will remain FMD-free. It is not easy to say this but we desperately need people who have family members here not to come this time,’’ said Lee Ki-ho, director of the livestock quarantine department at the South Jeolla Provincial Government.

The other 362 days out of the year you couldn't convince many Koreans, or expats for that matter, to visit Jeollanam-do, but as The Waygook Effect says given how little vacation time Koreans take it's unlikely that local officials will discourage Koreans from driving cross-country for one of its biggest holidays.
