China Suffers Bird-Flu Outbreak
posted by admin on 03/07/06

The outbreak was found near Zhongwei, a city in the Ningxia region

July 3, 2006

BEIJING -- China has suffered a new outbreak of the H5N1 strain of bird flu in poultry, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Saturday.

The outbreak was found near Zhongwei, a city in the Ningxia region, Xinhua said, citing the Agriculture Ministry. It didn't say how many or what type of birds were affected.

Ministry experts were sent to the area "to control any possible outbreak," and local authorities were disinfecting vehicles and people traveling into and out of the area, Xinhua said.

Meanwhile, the Health Ministry was investigating whether a man who died in 2003 had bird flu instead of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, as initially thought, according to the World Health Organization.

That fatality came two years before China reported its first human cases of bird flu in 2005. The country has suffered 12 fatalities from the disease since that time.

The case raised questions about China's ability to detect emerging diseases and keep international health organizations informed about them.

The 24-year-old man died at a Beijing military hospital, according to Roy Wadia, a WHO spokesman in the Chinese capital.
