China says deadly bird flu virus found in pigs for first time

Fri Aug 20, 4:35

BEIJING (AFP) - China announced it had made the first ever discovery of a deadly strain of bird flu in pigs, a development that could have ominous implications for efforts to restrict the disease's spread to humans.

Scientists discovered the lethal H5N1 virus in pigs tested in 2003 and again in others this year, China National Avian Influenza Reference Laboratory official Chen Hualan told journalists.

"It is not just the first time it has been found in China but in the world,"

* Vaccination vs Culling
***

"We don't like vaccination," says Hans Wagner of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization in Bangkok. This is also why the World Health Organization has reacted with dismay to Indonesia's announcement that it will tackle its outbreak with vaccination instead of culling. Vaccination may even have contributed to the origin of the latest variant of H5N1, as it would put strains that could evade the vaccine at an advantage.

a "point" FROM POULTRY TO PEOPLE


So far the H5N1 flu has infected 44 people and killed 32 of them, the virus has not yet acquired the ability to move from human to human.
Once it does, experts agree, it could spread quickly and kill millions.

Dr. Klaus Stohr, influenza coordinator for the World Health Organization believes the world is overdue for a pandemic that could kill millions, and he believes the H5N1 virus now killing off tens of millions of birds in Asia is the most likely source.

Flu pandemics -- global epidemics of new strains of disease that kill an unusually high number of people -- come on average every 27 years. The last one was in 1968.

"We are 36 years out. We believe that we are closer to the next pandemic than we ever were,"

land of the brain-dead From the Financial Times:

Before the Qinghai outbreak, the H5N1 virus had occurred only sporadically in wild birds close to poultry farms.

Ian Jones, a virologist at Reading University in the UK, said: It was expected to spread to migratory birds at some point but it is bad news that this has now happened.

Prof Jones said it was impossible to predict the impact of the development on the chance of H5N1 mutating into a form capable of causing a human pandemic.

The optimistic view was that as the virus spread through the bird population it would change into a less virulent form, he added.
