Everybody is afraid to admit that BF is mutating and they keep on telling the same story pneumonia we know that it is the cause of BF infection. We will see more and more cases like this Remember we need to go to work just like nothing happed we need to make The Man happy
Just remember that you can’t keep this under raps for long the truth will come up
And it will be too late for many of us

I didnt hear anything about actual tests done to dismiss the cases. Is this one more denial based upon medical conjecture.

If they had done tests fo h5n1 would they not just come out and say that. Ya no somthing like Lab results confirm two girls did not have H5N1 virus.

Instead we get (Ruled out)     HOW?????

Tragic Coincident        &n bsp; Really!!!

Died of Pneumonia       Yep thats what most H5N1 victims Die From

Exactly.

There was no reporting that they even tested for H5N1. Instead, just a vague and casual dismissal.

That is so disingenuous. All they've managed to do is stoke suspicion.

Bird flu outbreak confirmed in Russia

( area is located just east of where 2 grils died in Tibilisi)

Mar 10, 2006, 21:23

A bird flu outbreak has been confirmed at a bird product processing plant
in southern Russia, Itar-Tass news agency reported.

Laboratory tests have confirmed the presence of the highly pathogenic
H5N1 strain of avian influenza virus in dead birds, the agency said
Thursday.

More than 70,000 chickens have been culled since the beginning of
March, when fowl began to die en masse at the processing plant in the
southern region of Stavropol.

The infection and rapid spread of the deadly virus among the domestic
birds were due to the plant's neglect of relevant regulations with regard
to disease prevention, according to Russia's veterinary experts.

Stavropol region first reported the epidemic in late February when the
virus was only spreading among birds on poultry farms.

But now more than 2,500 domestic birds have died of the disease in the
region.

Since bird flu was firstly recorded in Siberia last July, the disease has been
detected in other parts of Russia. The Caspian Sea province of Dagestan
and the southwestern region of Krasnodar are the worst affected, where
900,000 and 700,000 domestic birds have been killed respectively as a
result of the disease.

The Ukraine is just West-North_West from Georgia. (Across the Black Sea from Turkey.  The Ukraine has had well over a thousand "pneumonia" deaths this winter.  Just to the west of the Ukraine is Moldavia and they have had close to a thousand deaths from "Pneumonia".  The coverup continues.

We don't know how many of the pneumonia deaths could be directly traced back to Sichuan Sheet, but I expect that most of them are.

Those girls and hundreds more like them are dead because of the coverup.

Well how many pneuomonia deaths do they normally have? If you think all those pneuomonia deaths, or most of them, are bird-flu, then what happened to all the other causes of pneuomonia this year?

For sure a thousand sounds like alot, but its not. At this time of year more than 10,000 people are dying in the UK every week (of all causes). Im sure we end up with more than 1000 respiratory-related deaths over the course of winter each year.

Whats missing fom those numbers is the location, If those 1000 pneuomonia deaths are spread out all over the country, it may be totally normal. If they were all in a certain regin, or there were housands of EXCESSIVE deaths, above the normal rate, then it would merit further investigation.

Also the weather in that part of the world has been very severe, that had the insanely cold snap in winter, which was exascurbated by the crisis over gas-supply from Russia.

Moving away from Georgia etc, and returning to Azerbaijan, here is the latest news from the WHO about the outbreak. Im sure you wont be surprised to see that they seem to be doing the usual thing if disgarding mild cases, and that diagnostic testing is a problem again. I still remain openminded, whilst it does seem negligent to discard such cases, I can see why initial high numbers may reduce completely legitimately as well. Going door-to-door after someones got real ill, and hospitalising potential cases, is bound to result in some people who only have normal flu being picked up. We cant solve this by shouting conspiracy at the WHO, we need better, faster testing. WHO can eliminate uncertain/mild cases because its hard to get a positive result, if we could do testing easier & more accurately, then it would be possible to actually look at the possible 'mild ird flu' in humans phenomenon and see how often its actually the case.

Anyway heres the WHO report:

Avian influenza – situation in Azerbaijan

10 March 2006

Since the beginning of March, the Ministry of Health in Azerbaijian has been investigating a cluster of 10 persons placed under observation for possible infection with the H5N1 avian influenza virus. All of these persons are from the Daikyand settlement in Salyan Rayon in the eastern part of the country.

The Salyan Rayon is located near wetlands frequented by migratory birds. Recent deaths of poultry have been reported in the Daikyand settlement, but the cause of these deaths has not yet been determined. The investigation was launched when two young women, who were neighbours, died within a week of each other. The first patient, a 17-year-old girl, died on 23 February. She was reported to have suffered for more than a year from respiratory symptoms associated with a neoplastic condition. Her death is now thought to have been caused by this pre-existing disease. As a precaution, samples have been taken and will be sent for H5N1 testing at a WHO collaborating laboratory in the United Kingdom.

The second death occurred on 3 March in a 20-year-old woman who died following rapidly progressive acute pneumonia, which is a characteristic feature in many cases of H5N1 infection.

Immediately following the second death, the Ministry of Health initiated daily house-to-house investigations, conducted by four teams of hospital staff, looking for persons in the settlement having respiratory symptoms or fever. As a result, an additional 8 persons were hospitalized for observation. Of these, six showed only mild symptoms. They have fully recovered and have now been discharged from hospital.

Of the remaining two patients, one, a 17-year-old girl, died on 8 March. A 16-year-old boy remains hospitalized in isolation. His condition is critical.

The response of the Ministry of Health has been prompt and efficient, but hampered by the lack of some essential equipment and supplies and inadequate diagnostic capacity. Prior to the event, staff from the Ministry of Health had visited offices of sanitary hygiene and epidemiology in each rayon within the country, creating a high level of awareness of the disease and a correspondingly high level of alert for possible cases of unusual respiratory disease. The house-to-house surveillance for cases is continuing.

A WHO team is presently in Azerbaijan to assess needs and provide technical support to health officials. The team will be augmented on Monday with additional expertise and supplies, including laboratory equipment and diagnostic reagents. Samples have been collected by local officials and shipment to the WHO-affiliated laboratory is expected to take place early next week. Supplies of the antiviral drug oseltamivir are available in Azerbaijan, but the quantity is limited. To date, all patients under investigation have received treatment with this drug.

Highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza was initially confirmed in Azerbaijan on 9 February in wild birds found in the coastal area near the capital city of Baku. On 24 February, the country announced detection of infection in poultry at farms in Khyzy (in the north-eastern part of the country) and Bilasuvar (near Salyan). Some 300,000 birds were culled as a result.

More bird-flu suffers hospitalized
Cianjur, W Java (ANTARA News) - A 32-year-old woman, Iin Suryani, a recident of Cinajur town, on Feiday was admitted to Hasan Sadikin Hospital in Bandung for suspected birdflu.

Earlier, a 15-year old junior high school student from Cipanas, Riandanil, was taken to the Sulianto Saroso hospital in Jakarta for the same reason.

Iis Suryani, a sponsor of migrant workers, was taken to the Hasan Sadikin hospital which is a reference hospital for birdflu patients in West Java, after a doctor at the Cianjur General Hospital declared she was suffering from suspected birdflu.

Her daughter, Sri Damayanti, said her mother`s condition worsened two days ago. Dr Wawan Gunawan from the Cinajur General Hospital said her condition was critical with temperatures of as high 38 centigrades.

He said she also had difficulty breathing and her luekocyte cells had also dropped. Based on the symptoms she was referred to the Hasan Sadikin hospital.(*)

I have a friend who will be there in 2-weeks if they allow
him in. I've asked him to contact me when he is there. He is also
attending I hope, ( an international vacccine confernce in Ottawa this
week) He has a few children, so he has a strong interest.
