China aims to vaccinate all poultry

first_imgNov 15, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – China’s announcement today that it plans to vaccinate all of its poultry against H5N1 avian influenza would launch the country on the largest single immunization effort in history for any species, according to a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) official.News of the vaccination plan came even as China reported two more poultry outbreaks, these in the northwestern region of Xinjiang.”China is trying to vaccinate all poultry nationwide,” said China’s chief veterinarian, Jia Youling, as quoted by Agence France-Presse (AFP). “The fees will be covered by the government.”In a live Web forum, Jia said China raises about 14 billion birds a year and currently has 5.2 billion, according to AFP. The Ministry of Agriculture said the country is producing more than 100 million doses of avian flu vaccine daily, but some areas are reporting shortages, the story said.China’s vaccination plan is at odds with the FAO’s typical recommendations.”At this point we cannot say if such a massive program is either possible or advisable,” said Joseph Domenech, FAO’s chief of veterinary services, as quoted today in the New York Times. Such large-scale vaccination campaigns are usually recommended only for places where the H5N1 virus is endemic, such as parts of Vietnam and Indonesia.Domenech told the Times he had seen no evidence that H5N1 is endemic throughout China.In addition, the demands of such a project are immense because birds must be individually vaccinated and because most of China’s poultry are in small flocks that roam free in individual households.However, Domenech also said that if any country can accomplish such an ambitious campaign, “China can do it.”The two latest avian flu outbreaks are in the counties of Zepu and Urumqi in Xinjiang, AFP reported. They were said to be China’s 10th and 11th outbreaks in the past month. None of the other recent cases have been in Xinjiang.The flu cases were discovered Nov 9 and confirmed yesterday, according to AFP. The story said 6,547 chickens were infected, of which 2,747 died, and 320,000 more were killed to contain the disease.last_img read more

Sprouts blamed in big Ontario Salmonella outbreak

first_img Oct 2, 2002, CIDRAP News story “FDA cites mung bean sprouts in renewing warning against eating raw sprouts” Toronto’s health department ordered Toronto Sun Wah Trading on Nov 25 to stop distributing mung bean sprouts because of possible contamination with Salmonella, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care announced the same day. Dr. Sheela Basrur, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, said 379 cases of salmonellosis have been confirmed in the province, according to a CBC news report published today. The report said 26 of 36 regional health agencies in Ontario had reported cases linked with eating sprouts. Salmonella bacteria are found in the intestines of animals and can contaminate sprouts (and other raw fruits and vegetables) that have been in contact with impure water, animal manure, or an infected food handler, the ministry noted. Symptoms of infection usually begin from 12 to 36 hours after a person consumes a contaminated food. The outbreak began early in November, according to the provincial health ministry’s Nov 25 news release. Normally about 20 to 25 cases of salmonellosis per month are reported at this time of year, the ministry said. Referring to Sun Wah Trading, Basrur said in the news release, “We have linked this food processing plant to a number of illness[es] in this outbreak. While the investigation continues, as a precaution, we are advising the public to avoid eating bean sprouts.” The ministry statement did not spell out the evidence linking the cases with sprouts from Sun Wah Trading. In a Nov 24 statement, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said Sun Wah mung bean sprouts have been sold in packages of various weights and under various store names or without the Sun Wah name. Officials did not mention any distribution of the products outside Ontario.center_img The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in January 2002 that 15 salmonellosis outbreaks associated with consumption of raw sprouts had been reported in the United States since 1995. The recommended safety step of soaking seeds in a calcium hypochlorite solution is not completely effective, the agency said. Dec 1, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Close to 400 people in Ontario have gotten sick in a Salmonella outbreak blamed on contaminated mung bean sprouts, according to Canadian news reports. See also: “We expect that there are many hundred more people who have Salmonella poisoning that have not yet come to our attention,” Basrur was quoted as saying. To reduce the risk of illness, the US Food and Drug Administration advises consumers to cook all sprouts thoroughly before eating them and to ask that raw sprouts not be added to restaurant sandwiches and salads. Most cases of Salmonella infection resolve without medical treatment, but the pathogen can cause serious and sometimes fatal illness in children, elderly people, and those with weak immune systems.last_img read more

Indonesia’s H5N1 death toll rises to 102

first_imgFeb 1, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Two more patients in Indonesia have died of H5N1 avian influenza this week, raising the country’s death toll from the virus to 102 out of 124 cases.The patients, whose illnesses were reported previously, were a 31-year-old woman from East Jakarta, who died yesterday, and a 32-year-old man from Tangerang, who died Jan 29, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).The woman became ill Jan 18 and was hospitalized 4 days later, according to a Jan 29 WHO statement. The agency reported her death in a statement today.A Reuters report today said it was unclear how the woman contracted the virus. But Mohammad Nadirin of Indonesia’s avian flu information center told Reuters, “The woman lived in a neighborhood full of fowl. A slaughterhouse is not so far from her house.” The story listed her as being from Tangerang, a western suburb of Jakarta, rather than East Jakarta.The 32-year-old man from Tangerang fell ill Jan 17 but was not hospitalized until Jan 24, according to the WHO’s Jan 29 statement.Indonesia’s avian flu information center said it was not known whether the man had had contact with infected birds, but several of his neighbors kept pigeons, according to a Jan 30 Agence France-Presse report.With the two latest deaths, all four H5N1 cases reported by Indonesian officials earlier this week have proved fatal. The other two patients were a 9-year-old boy from Depok municipality in West Java and a 23-year-old woman from East Jakarta. Both died Jan 27, according to the WHO.Indonesia has had seven H5N1 cases so far this year, all of them fatal. With 102 deaths in 124 cases, the fatality rate is 82%. The WHO’s global H5N1 count is 357 cases with 225 deaths, for a fatality rate of 63%.In India, meanwhile, 26 people have been put in isolation because of possible avian flu symptoms, according to a Reuters report today. India has been battling to control poultry outbreaks of H5N1 in West Bengal state.Veterinary workers have destroyed 2.6 million birds in West Bengal in what officials called a successful effort to stop the outbreaks, Reuters reported. Officials said workers returning home after the culling operation were asked to have themselves checked, according to the story.A senior health official named R. S.

CDC reports increase in flu activity, plus one swine H3N2 flu case

first_imgSep 4, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today reported an increase in pandemic H1N1 flu activity in the nation, focused primarily in five southeastern states, along with an isolated case of swine H3N2 influenza in a patient from Kansas.Officials from the CDC have said they expect flu activity to pick up again when students return to school, and many districts in the southeast resumed classes on Aug 10.Seasonal H1N1, H3N2, and B influenza viruses are circulating at low levels, but the pandemic H1N1 virus accounted for 97% of all flu viruses that were subtyped.As of today, 9,079 hospitalizations and 593 deaths have been linked to the pandemic H1N1 virus. Nine cases of oseltamivir-resistant novel H1N1 influenza have been detected in the United States, which is two more than the previous week.Alaska also reported widespread flu activity for the week ending Aug 29. Thirteen states, including six in the southeast, reported regional activity. The CDC said the number of outpatient visits for influenza-like illnesses rose but was still below the national baseline. Much of the rise was attributed to clinic visits for flu in southeastern states.The CDC also reported a human infection with a swine influenza A/H3N2 virus, a patient from Kansas who had contact with pigs before getting sick on Jul 28.The patient is a child who was likely exposed to the virus through direct contact with pigs during a county fair, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) said in an Aug 6 news release. The illness was mild, the child has fully recovered, and no other family members reported symptoms.H1N1 and H3N2 swine flu viruses are endemic in US pig populations; when the rare infections do occur in humans, they are typically in people with direct exposure to pigs. The number has risen slightly in past years, and so far this year the CDC has received reports of 14 such cases. The KDHE said the increased number of cases this year is probably the result of increased influenza testing related to the H1N1 pandemic.Jason Eberhart-Phillips, MD, MPH, director of the KDHE, said it’s critical for people to understand that the H3N2 virus is not related to the pandemic H1N1 virus. “This is not a mutation or a recombination of the pandemic strain, and it does not appear at this time to be a threat to human health,” he said in the press release.Though most cases of human infection with animal influenza viruses, such as swine H3N2, don’t lead to human-to-human transmission, health officials always investigate the cases carefully to assess if they are spreading among humans, Eberhart-Phillips said.See also:CDC weekly flu surveillance report 6 Kansas Department of Health and Environment press releaselast_img read more
