High Path Avian Influenza to keep an eye on

"The United States Department of Agriculture痴 (USDA) Animal and Plant Health InspectionService (APHIS) confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic (HPAI) H5 avian influenza in wild birds in Whatcom County, Washington. Two separate virus strains were identified: HPAI H5N2 in northern pintailducks and HPAI H5N8 in captive Gyrfalconsthat were fed hunter-killed wild birds. Neither virus has been found in commercialpoultry anywhere in the United States."

"Also HPAI H5N2 in B.C. Canada Preliminary testing by the Province of British Columbia has confirmed the presence of H5 avian influenza on two farms in the Fraser Valley; a turkey farm in Abbotsford and a broiler breeder farm in Chilliwack."

If it needs to be moved that's OK. No humans have reported yet, so I put it in 'other'. But I just read where the B.C. version is Fujian H5, which some humans contracted before. http://www.recombinomics.com/News/12..._Confused.html

Apparently H5N8 is being spread worldwide by wild birds. No humans have ever had H5N8, but I'm wondering about poultry prices, because the way the health authorities deal with this is to kill entire flocks.

So H5N8 has been found in California now H5N8 virus surfaces on California turkey farm | CIDRAP

Also 30 countries now have stopped poultry imports from the USA, so this could have some economic repercussions, especially with China stopping poultry imports. That's a really big deal. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/0...ry-114046.html

Latest USA bird flu updates

The 14 HPAI H5 detections, seven (H5N2), six (H5N8), and one (H5N1), occurred in five northwestern states (California, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington). Outbreaks occurred in five domestic, backyard flocks, two captive wild birds, and seven wild aquatic birds. All backyard flocks were destroyed after identification of HPAI H5 virus. Of 24 persons reporting exposure to infected birds, one person developed influenza-like illness (ILI) after exposure but subsequently tested negative for influenza.
Outbreaks of Avian Influenza A (H5N2), (H5N8), and (H5N1) Among Birds — United States, December 2014–January 2015

Other countries: until today I didn't know about the H9 strains
Egypt reports human H9N2 avian flu, H5N1 count nears 50 | Outbreak News Today
Avian Flu Diary: H9N2: The Other Bird Flu Threat from the link: "If all of this sounds a bit ominous, it may help to know that all of the H9 human infections detected to date have been relatively mild, that human-to-human transmission has not been detected, and that the H9 virus has managed to circulate in birds for many years without sparking a pandemic."

and now the first person to get an H10 bird flu
A new report published in The Lancet details the world’s first confirmed case of human infection with a new avian influenza virus that has genetically evolved from the H10N8 virus. A 73-year-old woman from Nanchang City in China died 9 days after the onset of illness from the infection.

After handling birds at the local live poultry market, it is recommended that one wash one's hands.

I do that even after handling parts of dead birds. Usually it's chicken.

Oh, and an unrelated reminder. Cook that cheap turkey meat to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, which ensures that any pathogens are destroyed.

The FDA promises these turkeys won't be entering the food supply. I just keep remembering the local slaughterhouse that was busily shuffling carcasses around during the inspectors lunch hour. They did finally get shut down, and several folks were convicted of selling condemned beef.

This is why I trust companies to look out for my best interests.

Its why I trust my insurance company has my back, and I take all their minimum wage telephone workers advice as gospel.

Darn ole' gov't stickin their noses in a worker's business.
