Bird Flu Monitored in Cambodia
posted by admin on 14/08/06

Monitored for 30 days

August 14, 2006

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia -- A Cambodian village hit by a new outbreak of the virulent H5N1 bird-flu virus will be closely monitored for 30 days, as officials also inspect surrounding areas in an effort to prevent the disease from spreading, an official said yesterday.

Following recommended procedures, animal-health officials will continue collecting samples from poultry in the village and in a three-kilometer radius around it to test for bird flu, said Kao Phal, director of the Agriculture Ministry's animal health department.

He also said that officials have finished culling some 400 ducks that were part of the 1,600 ducks on the small village farm where the outbreak began.

The ministry on Saturday confirmed the outbreak of H5N1 among ducks in Rokar Chuor Timuoy village in Prey Veng province, about 50 kilometers southeast of the capital Phnom Penh, and bordering Vietnam.

This latest outbreak has prompted Agriculture Minister Chan Sarun to urge people across the country to be on "high alert" for bird flu. In a statement broadcast on the state-run television network TVK Saturday, he ordered strict enforcement of a ban on the import of poultry products from neighboring countries as well as on transport and trade of poultry in or near the stricken village.

Ly Sovann, director of the Health Ministry's disease-surveillance bureau, said yesterday that there were no signs yet of any villagers being infected by the virus.

Elsewhere:

INDONESIA

A teenager being treated at a hospital in West Java has tested positive for H5N1, Indonesia's Health Ministry said Saturday.

The 17-year-old boy was hospitalized after developing a fever and breathing problem, said Haris, an official from the ministry's special task force for bird flu, who, like many Indonesians, uses a single name. The tests were conducted at the ministry's laboratory and a U.S. Navy medical-research unit, he said.

The deaths of two teenagers last week pushed Indonesia's human toll from the virus to 44, making it the country worst-hit by the disease. Most of the deaths have occurred this year.

VIETNAM

Vietnam on Friday reported its first cases of bird flu this year in poultry, igniting fears of a possible resurgence of H5N1 in the country that had been hailed for controlling its spread.

The virus was detected in two ducks and two geese in random testing in southern Ben Tre province, said Mai Van Hiep, director of the Ben Tre Animal Health Bureau.

More tests were expected to be carried out in ducks on surrounding farms, Mr. Hiep said.

Earlier last week, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung put the nation on high alert after new flare-ups were reported in neighboring countries. Two people have died from the disease in Thailand since July, and a poultry outbreak was reported in Laos.
