China: Deadly Bird Flu Detected in Hong Kong

Posted by Author on June 12, 2008

By Edward Cody, Washington Post Foreign Service, Wednesday, June 11, 2008-

BEIJING, June 11 — Hong Kong authorities announced Wednesday that they planned to kill all poultry in the territory’s retail markets because of fears of a dangerous bird flu outbreak.

Health officials said they detected the deadly H5N1 virus last week in chickens at a stall in the Kowloon area and slaughtered about 2,700 animals in that neighborhood to prevent its spread. But more cases were uncovered this week at four markets in the New Territories and Hong Kong island, leading to the order to get rid of all remaining live poultry in retail markets, stalls and stores.

The order does not affect sales of pre-slaughtered poultry sold packaged in supermarkets, as is common in much of the world. But Hong Kong residents have a long tradition of buying live chickens and readying them for the kitchen at home.

No humans are known to have been infected in the current outbreak, the officials said. But Hong Kong, a densely populated city of 7 million, has been particularly sensitive about contagious diseases since the severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, epidemic broke out in 2003. …… (more details from Washington Post)

    Thanks for the information on Bird Flu.

    We recently wrote an article on a possible vaccine for Bird Flu at Brain Blogger. A published clinical trial of a whole-virus H5N1 vaccine derived from a cell culture raises new hopes for a vaccine against the deadly virus. Though there are only 383 cases in humans, the virus is mutating, which means an epidemic might be in the near future.

    We would like to read your comments on our article. Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Kelly
