    Bird flu is extremely lethal to human beings creating a 60% fatality rate. Bird flu is an infection caused by avian
    (bird) influenza (flu) viruses. These flu viruses occur among birds naturally. When regular, it kills 36,000 people

   The world would have never thought that beautiful and innocuous creatures like poultry birds could
pose a major health threat to humans. The unthinkable has already happened in certain countries of
Asia, Africa and Europe. The poultry birds like chickens and even ducks have been found affected by
highly pathogenic avian flu.

Technically called the H5N1 virus, it normally affects the birds and has a very high mortality rate
amongst the birds. Though the possibility of human transmission of this virus is extremely low, yet
there have been more than 100 confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza viruses since
1997. Now there are genuine fears that the current outbreak of bird flu can transform itself into the
deadly influenza pandemic.

The last century was witness to 3 influenza pandemics that killed millions of people worldwide. The
experts have predicted huge monetary and human losses if and when another influenza pandemic was
to strike the green planet.

Bird flu prevention is the major thrust of health experts the world over. The poultry workers who are
most prone to bird flu are advised not to come in direct contact with the secretal and faecal matter of
birds. They must also wash their hands with soap as and when the contact is suspected. However,
most national governments have tried to identify the infected area and culled all the birds in that region
to effectively arrest the spread of the disease.

Tamiflu (oseltamivir) is the only known effective drug for bird flu treatment in humans (though there are
some unconfirmed claims about Relenza as an effective drug against avain flu doing the rounds). No
vaccination has yet been developed to prevent the onset of disease among humans. The governemnts
worldwide have stockpiled Tamiflu to tackle the bird flu. But if ever a Tamiflu-resistant strain developed
in humans, in all probability we would witness the first influenza pandemic of this century. Till then, it is
prudent to buy Tamiflu for bird flu treatment.

      "How to Avoid From Being Infected With Bird Or Swine Flu Virus and Survive If You Are
                                       Already Infected"
                                                           By Winston Badon

Also known as the bird flu, avian influenza is a disease that once infected only

birds. However, the new avian flu virus that has emerged in Asia can be

transferred from fowl to humans and has acquired the ability to infect humans

with deadly results. As a result, the World Health Organization and the Centers

for Disease Control and Prevention are closely monitoring what could be the next

deadly flu pandemic. If this virus mutates further, it may acquire the ability

to be transmitted from person to person.

It is a very real threat and every government on every level has been preparing for it for years. Avian
influenza, or bird flu, is a major concern for public health authorities and is an increasing threat to
public health. With the bird flu war being fought and starting to fail, we really can't win a Biological War,
you can never be too careful especially if you own ducks, chickens, birds, poultry farms.

The highly pathogenic influenza A virus subtype H5N1 virus is an emerging avian influenza virus that
has been causing global concern as a potential pandemic threat. It is often referred to simply as "bird
flu" or "avian influenza" even though it is only one subtype of avian influenza causing virus.

H5N1 has killed millions of poultry in a growing number of countries throughout Asia, Europe and
Africa. Health experts are concerned that the co-existence of human flu viruses and avian flu viruses
(especially H5N1) will provide an opportunity for genetic material to be exchanged between
species-specific viruses, possibly creating a new virulent influenza strain that is easily transmissible
and lethal to humans.

Since the first H5N1 outbreak occurred in 1997, there has been an increasing number of HPAI H5N1
bird-to-human transmissions leading to clinically severe and fatal human infections. However, because
there is a significant species barrier that exists between birds and humans, the virus does not easily
cross over to humans, though some cases of infection are being researched to discern whether human
to human transmission is occurring. More research is necessary to understand the pathogenesis and
epidemiology of the H5N1 virus in humans. Exposure routes and other disease transmission
characteristics such as genetic and immunological factors, that may increase the likelihood of infection,
are not clearly understood.
