Suphan Buri given 'emergency' status

Suphan Buri, one of the areas worst hit by avian-flu outbreaks, was finally declared an "emergency disaster area" yesterday.
The declaration followed a recommendation by the provincial livestock office that the province should be considered as a "suspected avian flu epidemic area", the province's governor said.

A British drug company has requested permission to conduct human trials for a possible avian flu vaccine.

The volunteers in the trial will be vaccinated with a handheld device on their upper arm. The device will discharge harmless, microscopic gold particles coated in the vaccine into the body at supersonic speeds.

Sounds a bit sci-fi to me....maybe it will work.

The infected area is probably wider than we know even now.... developing countries just don't have the technology or resources to identify and report this spreading disease.

Infected Birds in Thailand Eaten

english.eastday.com: "Hundreds of domestic poultry died in a village in northern Thailand Phet last week, and villagers cooked and ate them without regard to possible bird flu, local medical officials reported yesterday. "


Sounds Dangerous.....but I believe if cooked thoroughly it is not necessarily so.

Bird flu virus infected Nigeria multiple times

Bird flu virus infected Nigeria multiple times
Nigeria has been infected multiple times with H5N1 bird flu probably carried by migratory birds from southern Russia and northern Europe or introduced by imported chickens, scientists said on Wednesday.
After analysing samples from infected birds on two farms in south-western Nigeria they found the viruses were genetically distinct from each other and from H5N1 found in the north of the country.

Further spread of the disease....I believe the spread will be halted by the ordinary citizen ...not governments.....check out my e-book detailing things the ordinary man can do.. birdflusafety.com.

This is an interesting report by WHO check it out. Don't know how accurate the info is, if it relies on individual countries reports....those are definitely suspect.

Head for the hills, and don't eat chicken

Head for the hills, and don't eat chicken
Idly reading an article in today's Guardian on several people who caught bird flu from wild swans in Azerbaijan, I was somewhat shocked to read this final paragraph:


Interesting comments and conclusions.
