Bird-Flu avian influenza called H7N9....

Just a though for you all regarding the new strain of bird-flu going on...

Public Health Agency of Canada article
"Public Health Notice: H7N9 avian flu in China
Released: 4 April 2013

Why you should take note

The World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed a new type of avian influenza virus in humans identified as A(H7N9) in the People’s Republic of China. All cases developed severe pneumonia and breathing difficulties, some resulting in death. Additional cases are expected. Official numbers are available here.

Risk to Canadians

The H7N9 flu virus causing illness in people in China has not been identified in birds in Canada.

There have been no reports of human illness in Canada associated with the H7N9 flu virus currently causing illness in China.

The risk posed to humans by avian influenza in birds is generally very low. Avian influenza does not transmit easily from birds to infect humans.

While there is no risk of catching the flu virus by eating affected poultry, Canada, in fact, does not import raw poultry or raw poultry products from China.

Canadians should protect themselves and their fellow citizens from seasonal/annual influenza by:

Getting an annual flu shot;
Washing hands frequently;
Covering coughs and sneezes;
Keeping common surfaces clean; and
Staying home when sick.
What the Public Health Agency of Canada is doing

The Agency works closely with its national and international partners, including the WHO, to track all types of flu activity in Canada and around the world.

An Agency medical expert is based in Beijing and is liaising with the Chinese infectious disease prevention authorities on this outbreak.

The Agency's National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) has access to the H7N9 whole genome sequence through the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data (GISAID). This information allows the NML to rapidly detect the H7N9 flu virus.

The NML is also working closely with provincial laboratories to ensure they are also able to test for the H7N9 flu virus.

Bird-Flu Cover-Up? Chinese Social Media Out Possible Cases of Deadly Disease
"As of April 2, seven people from Shanghai and the eastern provinces of Jiangsu and Anhui had been confirmed to have the disease. Two died in early March and five are currently in critical condition, according to the Chinese state press."

that's because of the thousands of dead/diseased pig carcasses dumped into rivers used for drinking water and evidence of those carcasses being used by restaurants

that's been pretty big news the last few months and then BAM the avian flu shows up linked to it

^no one knows for sure until they map out the genome of H7N9 from the decease

they need to check whether it was bird -> human or bird->pig->human
