I just read something on twitter about two new cases of bird flu in Cambodia of an older version. Anyone have any news on this?

Cambodia: 50yr old man dies of H5N1 bird flu infection. It's the second recorded death from H5N1 in Cambodia this year. In February, an 11-year-old child died of H5N1 in Prey Veng province.

and

Cambodia: Second human H5N1 infection in one week. This case involves a 2-year-old girl from Prey Veng province, who appears to have died. This could be a second bird flu fatality, the first being a 50yr old man, reported in the tweet above.

DJ, so-if correct-Cambodia had three fatalities this year due to H5N1;

february 11 y/o girl

october 50 y/o man

october 2 y/o girl

At least two of them -the two girls- linked to Prey Veng province. 

------------

H5N1 is widespread in both birds and mammals -more or less around the globe. It WILL mix with other flu-virusses in a host...I think the major risk will be in H5N1 mixing with a H1/H2/H3 flu virus...

Flu virussspread is already decreasing eggs/poultry in a.o. South Africa...so it does increase food costs...

Despite our recent preoccupation with HPAI H5N1 clade 2.3.4.4b, which has been spreading with remarkable speed via migratory birds for the past couple of years, HPAI H5Nx viruses remain a diverse, and evolving threat. 

Right now, it isn't clear which version of H5N1 is behind these two latest deaths. 

We've seen more than 60 H5N6 human cases in China over the past 3 years, and last winter we saw the return of clade 2.3.2.1c in Cambodia, where it killed an 11-year old girl and infected her father. 


Although we've stood on the precipice before with avian flu before, only to see the threat recede, there are no guarantees we will be as lucky this time.  But even if we are - Influenza's superpower lies in its ability to evolve, adapt, and reinvent itself (via reassortment).

DJ, in the UK testing poultry workers did find several cases of a-symptomatic spread. Maybe a combination with other flu type could see a more dangerous variant...
