Virus Threatens Birds in the Borderland

Friday, February 25, 2011 - 12:07pm

EL PASO - The U.S. food supply could be at risk because of a virus spreading in Juarez.

Hundreds of birds have dropped dead across the city and now people are hoping the outbreak does not spread to U.S. poultry.

"The problem is it spreads very easily. It spreads through the air, it spreads through the contact with any discharges from the bird or tissues. It can be on your shoes and you can track it to another area where there's birds."

Doctor Nancy Harvey is a bird expert who owns her own clinic. She says the virus causes nasal and eye discharge, diarrhea, paralysis, tremors and even sudden death in birds.

"It's not a virus of dogs and cats so Coco you don't have to worry about this one."

Can the bird virus spread to people?

"It's not contagious to people but it could really wipe out the poultry industry."

We are told the last major outbreak was in the 1970's when the U.S. had to destroy millions of birds in California.

A smaller local outbreak happened in 2003 in El Paso's Lower Valley.

Dr. Harvey says because the virus spreads so easily, and has recently been detected over the border, it could spread to El Paso but she says the biggest risk is not from birds that fly over the border, it is from people who smuggle in birds for cockfighting.

"You know they're not going to contact a veterinarian and if those birds get out they can infect birds in the area and that would be a huge problem."

Cambodian bird flu deaths show continuing threat

Friday, 25 February 2011

Radio Australia
Updated February 24, 2011

An expert in global diseases says the death of a Cambodian mother and her baby from bird flu are a timely reminder that the world must not forget about animal influenza. Earlier this month a 5 year old Cambodian girl also died from bird flu - it was the first such death worldwide since early 2010. But it's not just Cambodia that is at risk. Many Asian countries remain vulnerable to animal diseases crossing over to humans.

Reporter: Liam Cochrane
Speakers: Dr Nima Asgari, public health specialist, World Health Organisation, Cambodia; Dr Subhash Morzaria, regional manager, Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases, UN Food and Agriculture Organisation

COCHRANE: Twenty one year old Prak Sophorn and her 11 month old son were visiting relatives in Cambodia's southeast when it is believed they came into contact with sick poultry. They travelled back to their homes on the other side of the country and became sick, but at first bird flu was not suspected.

ASGARI: Our understanding is that the initial symptoms were basically fever, cough, breathlessness, so your classical respiratory infection.

COCHRANE: That's Dr Nima Asgari, a public health specialist with the World Health Organisation in Cambodia. He says only after the Prak Sophorn died on February 12 did doctors check her baby son for bird flu and found both mother and child had contracted H5N1, a strain of bird flu.

Dr Subhash Morzaria
, UN Food and Agriculture Organisation's regional manager of the Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases, based in Bangkok.

MORZARIA: This is not unusual. When we get outbreaks of disease there are still very poor people who eat sick birds, sometimes not very well cooked and would likely be infected. And this is what's happened in this case.

COCHRANE: Dr Morzaria says any human infection is a concern as it suggests a lack of awareness about handling sick birds. In fact, while the urgent threat of bird flu may have fallen off the global media agenda, several countries remain endemic, meaning the disease is entrenched and sporadic outbreaks are expected to continue.

In Asia, the hotspots are Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh and West Bengal.

Dr Subhash Morzaria says Japan has emerged as a new risk.

MORZARIA: The virus is being actually spread by wild birds. So we now know that wild birds are infected with highly pathogenic avian influenza, H5N1 virus. And [the wild birds] then shed the virus when they're migrating to Japan. Somehow the virus is then jumping to the poultry and causes these huge outbreaks.

COCHRANE: Bird flu was initially controlled in Japan and this reemergence in a developed nation is a major concern to health workers. But, Dr Subhash Morzaria from the FAO, says most transmissions of bird flu still occur through raising or trading in poultry and he says that is where the resources should stay.

MORZARIA: Moving from that into wild birds is a red herring, I think. We have to be aware that wild birds carry. We have to be aware of the need for biosecurity. But most of the infection and focus of control has to be in endemic countries where there's the transmission from poultry to poultry.

COCHRANE: Dr Morzaria says it is important to maintain a watch for emerging diseases and to make sure existing ones do not reemerge. Developing countries in Asia, with their dependence on agriculture are particularly at risk, says Dr Morzaria, citing the nipah virus transmitted by bats in South Asia, rabid dogs in Bali and anthrax in bangladesh. In fact, Dr Morzaria says bird flu is part of wider trend of globalised human behaviour opening the doors for animal diseases.

MORZARIA: About 70 per cent of the animal diseases that emerge are infective to human beings. This particular trend is going to continue because of the human activity. We are intensifying our farming systems, so there is a high population of domestic animals for food consumption. There is high population of human beings. There is increased deforestation. There is greater contact between different animal species and human beings, and this is really going to enhance opportunities for pathogens to jump from one species to another.

COCHRANE: Dr Subhash Morzaria says the most effective prevention will occur if governments work together.

Ministry of Health and World Health Organisation officials confirmed today the deaths of a young mother and her 11-month-old son were the result of the A(H5N1) influenza virus, commonly known as bird flu.

A joint statement said that Prak Sophorn, 19, and her 11-month-old son were infected while handling poultry during a visit to relatives in Prey Veng province’s Rokar Chor village.

“The mother was admitted to a private clinic in Banteay Meanchey province but died as a result of complications of infection on 12 February,” the statement said, adding that her son died while being treated at a hospital in Siem Reap province on February 17.

The deaths bring to 11 the total number of people killed by bird flu in Cambodia since 2003, following the death earlier this month of a 5-year-old girl in Phnom Penh’s Russei Keo district.

A rapid response team was dispatched to Rokar Chor village today to interview people who might have had close contact with the deceased at the time of infection, the statement said.

Nima Asgari, a public health specialist at the WHO, said samples were taken from several people who might have been exposed to the virus, and that the team will continue to follow up for the next two weeks to cover the possible incubation period.

No one with bird flu-like symptoms has been reported in medical facilities in Prey Veng province since the deceased fell ill, Asgari said.

Villagers told the response team they had recently seen officials take samples from chickens in Prey Veng but that no connection to the two deaths had been confirmed.

Yos Mony, director of Prey Veng province’s department of agriculture, said samples are routinely taken in the province for avian influenza testing and that he was unaware of the details of the recent deaths.

There has not been an unusually large number of chicken deaths in the province of late, he added.

Seven people who prepared the body of Prak Sophorn for cremation were admitted to hospital last week in Banteay Meanchey but have been determined not to be at risk of bird flu infection and are not being tested for the virus, according to the Ministry of Health.

A common factor in the three bird flu deaths this year has been the handling of dead or sick poultry, Asgari said.

“If people find dead or sick chickens, they should not have any contact and should immediately call the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Agriculture or local authorities,” he said.

In the study, in combination with the rapid spread of the disease, and anxiety. Since the last pandemic occurred it has passed 38 years. Since the 19th century, the pandemic has been occurring at intervals of up to 40 years. This means that we are responsible. All of influenza that occurred during that period, have originated from China and Southeast Asia. This is exactly the point of origin of the H5N1 type. And the number of pharmaceutical companies are working on the inside, to test bird flu vaccine, there is increasing evidence they can be useless.
