    Human Public Health Implications
• High mortality of H5N1 to humans
•   Emergence of a new influenza virus with
    pandemic potential
     -Efficient human to human transmission
     -Vast majority of people have no immunity
     -No protective vaccine/ Inadequate
      quantity of developed vaccines for the
     -High number of cases and deaths
      worldwide (pandemic)
Transmission to humans
• Close contact with infected birds
  and through aerosols, discharges
  and surfaces

• Virus is excreted in feces, which
  dries, pulverized and inhaled

• Flapping of wings hasten

               The signs are alarming
A.   Avian influenza is endemic and probably ineradicable among
     poultry in Southeast Asia
B.   H5N1 spread at pandemic velocity amongst migratory birds, with
     the potential to reach most of the earth in the next year
C.   Humans and animals are mixing vessel for the virus.
•    1968-69 (most recent pandemic) : China population was 790 million; today it is 1.3
     billion the number of pigs in China was 5.2 million; today it is 508 million, number
     of poultry 1968 was 12.3 million, today it is 13 billion.

D.   Exponential multiplication of hot spots and silent reservoirs (as
     among infected but asymptomatic ducks)
E.   Increasing human H5N1 infections, small clusters of cases
F.   Rapid growth in foreign travel
  Stages of Avian and Pandemic
Stage 1: Avian influenza-free   Philippines

Stage 2: Avian influenza in domestic fowl in
      the Philippines

Stage 3: Avian influenza from poultry to
      humans in the Philippines

Stage 4 - Human-to-human transmission
     (pandemic influenza) in the country
            Strategic Approaches
                               • Use of antiviral agents
                               • Infection control

  public panic
Stage 1: Keeping the Philippines Bird Flu Free
             Prevention of entry of the virus:

  •   Ban of all poultry and poultry products
      from AI-infected countries
  •   Border control
  •   Ban on sale, keeping in captivity of wild
  •   Biosecurity measures
  •   Standardized footbath
  •   Confiscation and destruction of unlicensed
  •   Surveillance of Poultry in Critical Areas
  •   Influenza vaccination for all poultry
      workers, handlers
STAGE 2: Avian Influenza in Domestic Fowl
            in the Philippines

     Individuals at risk

         with infected birds
STAGE 2: Avian Influenza in Domestic Fowl
            in the Philippines
   •   Prevention of spread from birds-to birds:
       early recognition and reporting, mass
       culling, quarantine of affected area

   •   Prevention of spread from birds to
       humans: human protection through
       proper handling of infected birds, use of
       protective gear by residents, poultry
       handlers, and response teams
STAGE 2: Avian Influenza in Domestic
      Fowl in the Philippines
 Community Response to sick or dead birds

 •   Protection of exposed residents – gloves/ plastic material in
     handling sick or dead birds, hand washing

 •   Personal protective equipment for cullers – caps, masks,
     goggles, gowns

 •   Identification of exposed individuals and quarantine for 7 days

 •   Reporting to the Barangay Health Emergency Response Team/
     local health officer
STAGE 3- Avian Influenza in Humans
 Community response
 •   Patient: face mask, in a separate area or at least 1
     meter distance from other people

 •   Protection of caregiver : face mask and goggles or
     eye glasses, hand washing, self-monitoring for
     signs and symptoms
 •   Immediate transfer to the Referral Hospital
 •   Protection of the transporting team and disinfection
     of vehicle
 •   Monitoring of contacts of the case

STAGE 4: Human-to-human Transmission of
     Influenza (pandemic influenza)
    WHO announcement of pandemic
    influenza from other countries, clusters or increased
    number of sick passengers:

 • SARS-Influenza Alert System for Airports and Seaport
 • Detection of symptomatic cases in airports and
   seaports- thermal screening, health declaration
 • Quarantine of arrivals for 7 days from affected
   countries in communities
 • Isolation of cases

 •Of limited use because of the contagiousness of the
  patient during the symptom-free stage
Coping with increased demand for health
             services and goods
 Primary care

    • manpower augmentation
    • antipyretics, analgesics, liniments and

   Secondary care

    • Shortage of beds, equipment and supplies
    • Only serious and urgent cases will be admitted
    • Back-up / buddy system
    • Supplies of relevant drugs (e.g. antibiotics) and
     equipment (e.g. Ventilator)
   Maintaining essential services
In an explosive spread, efforts and
resources will be shifted to maintenance
 of essential services
  Persons providing
  • Emergency and disaster response
  • Maintenance of peace and order
  • Transportation, including air traffic controllers
  • Utilities – water, electricity

• Arrange ahead places of duties and schedule to
  cover the required duties during the pandemic
• Back up
  For avian influenza
• Procured through WHO : Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) – P1.7 M
  700 bottles suspension - PhP 0.7M &10,000 capsules for 1000 cases
  PhP 1 M

  For pandemic influenza
  For Procurement ( Funds to be sourced out)
  • 100,000 capsules for 10,000 treatment courses = PhP 10 million
  • for treatment of patients in areas with initial outbreaks of pandemic
    influenza, to contain the infection/prevent spread

  Estimated cost requirement of Oseltamivir:
  2% of population (2% attack rate) – 1.7 Million cases x 10
  17 Million capsules will be needed x P100/ capsule - PhP 1.7 Billion

  • efficacy is uncertain, in short supply,
  • decision on who should be given priority

  Possible sources of antiviral agents:
  1. International stockpile – yet to be established
  2. Business sector to buy antiviral agents for their own employees,
    Slowing the spread of infection
Personal hygiene – cough etiquette, handwashing
Social Distancing

•   Reduction of unnecessary travel
•   Staying at home when sick
•   Isolation at home (separate room)
•   Closure of schools

The SARS experience and the influenza pandemic
  •SARS: "The relatively high case-fatality rate, the identification of
   super-spreaders, the newness of the disease, the speed of its
   global spread, and public uncertainty about the ability to control
   its spread may have contributed to the public's alarm. This
   alarm, in turn, may have led to the behavior that exacerbated the
   economic blows to the travel and tourism industries of the
   countries with the highest number of cases.“
  •Economic impact of the six-month SARS epidemic:
        Asia-Pacific region at about $40 billion.
        Canadian tourism- $419 million.
        Ontario health-care system -$763 million,
        Flights in the Asia-Pacific area decreased by 45 % from
       the year before, the number of flights between Hong Kong
       and the United States fell 69 %
How should the business sector prepare?
 • Schedule of duties with back-up
 • Buddy system
 • Raw materials – alternate sources, stockpile
 • Infection control in the workplace- cough
   manners, hand washing, provide facilities
 • Guidelines on reporting to work – staying at
   home when sick
          How can the business sector be
            of help to the government?
• Support for information dissemination
• Identify/ share resources – tents, diagnostics
  supplies and equipment
• Support for surveillance – diagnostics, reporting
  network, communication
Pandemic period:
• Augment resources – manpower, drugs and other
• Communications
