Baby in Hong Kong infected with H9N2 avian flu

first_imgMar 20, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Hong Kong officials have reported that a 9-month-old girl is infected with the strain of avian influenza known as A/H9N2, which has caused mild human illness in the city three times before and is considered capable of evolving into a pandemic strain.The Hospital Authority in Hong Kong said the baby girl has only mild symptoms but is in isolation at Princess Margaret Hospital, according to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report today.Thomas Tsang, head of the Hong Kong Centre for Health Protection, said test results today confirmed that the virus is H9N2, according to the story.The same strain infected two girls in Hong Kong in 1999 and a 5-year-old boy there in 2003; all had mild illnesses and recovered.Tsang said the baby girl became ill Mar 4 with an upper respiratory tract infection and fever and was hospitalized at United Christian Hospital from Mar 6 to 9, AFP reported. The story did not make clear when she was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital.The Hospital Authority said it was “very concerned” about the case and that United Christian Hospital would “conduct a review” of all healthcare workers who had close contact with the girl, according to AFP.A report from Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) today said the girl was believed to have contracted the virus from a market in a densely populated area of Hong Kong.The AFP report quoted Tsang as saying in a statement, “Further genetic sequencing is being conducted to determine if the virus is completely of avian origin. This is an isolated case and the source of infection is being investigated. Based on previous experience, however, we will look especially into bird-to-human transmission.”The Centre for Health Protection said the girl’s family members were well and she had not been taken outside Hong Kong recently, according to AFP.In 2004 the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), concerned that H9N2 could evolve into a pandemic strain, contracted with Chiron Corp. (now part of Novartis) to produce a vaccine against the virus. Last September scientists reported that the experimental vaccine generated a good immune response in a phase 1 clinical trial.The contract called on Chiron to make 40,000 doses of the vaccine, based on an inactivated strain of H9N2 developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The report on the clinical trial results said H9N2 viruses are widespread in Eurasian poultry. Two of the three different Asian lineages of these viruses can bind to human as well as bird cell receptors (sialic acid residues) and therefore may be more likely to infect humans than other avian flu viruses are, the authors wrote.The H9N2 strain of avian flu is distinct from the lethal Asian strain of H5N1 virus, which has killed millions of poultry in Asia, Africa, and Europe and caused 281 human illness cases, 169 of them fatal, according to the World Health Organization’s current tally.See also:Sep 26, 2006, CIDRAP News story “H9N2 flu vaccine looks good in clinical trial”August 2004 NIAID news release about the Chiron contract to produce an H9N2 vaccinehttp://www.niaid.nih.gov/news/newsreleases/Archive/2004/Pages/h9n2.aspxDec 10, 2003, CIDRAP News story “Hong Kong probes human case of avian flu”last_img read more

THOUSANDS AT ‘CAN’T PAY, WON’T PAY’ PROTEST HEAR PRIEST TELL THEM TO STAND FIRM

first_imgTWO thousand people took to the streets of Letterkenny today to voice their protest at the €100 household charge and heard a Catholic priest tell them to stand up to the Government.With just a few days left before the March 31st deadline, a large demonstration was organised by anti-austerity protesters with people travelling from all over the county, and a small group from north Leitrim.Gaoth Dobhair priest Father Brian O’Fearraigh told the crowd that the charges were “unfair and unjust” and urged people not to pay the household charge, septic tank charges or water taxes. Father O’Fearraigh was among a number of people who symbolically tore up household charge registration forms.The popular priest told the crowd: “It was once said that ‘there is only one way to succeed in anything and that is to give it everything.’“Standing here today, we give it our all, in order to ensure that these regressive and unjust charges are defeated and in the words of a fellow campaigner in Falcarragh recently, To ensure these charges are relegated to the septic tank of history. Why? Because they bring nothing but, hardship and difficulty, stress and poverty go leor.“We, the people say: No to household charges. We the people say: No to water charges, We the people say no to septic tank registration fees. We the people say: We Can’t Pay won’t Pay.” TD Thomas Pringle got the biggest cheer when he told people to tell local Oireachtas members Joe McHugh, Dinny McGinley and Jimmy Harte that the ‘won’t pay’ message was clear.And he responded to reports that the Government had told councils to start knocking doors to collect the charge by saying: “The message will be the same, we can’t pay, we won’t pay, now go away.”Other speakers said they believed the people should stick together.“The sense of anger out there is palpable. People are simply not going to pay this charge. It’s the last straw,” said Micheal Mac Giolla Easbuig , one of the organisers.“This protest is about sending a message to Government that people simply cannot afford any more charges “With just days to the deadline we want to let them know that we are not for turning,” he said.A separate protest over cuts to school transport took place in the Twin Towns. Free transport will only be provided in future if pupils attend their nearest post-primary school.Parents and teachers in the Finn Valley area walked from Navenney Car Park in Ballybofey to Stranorlar.THOUSANDS AT ‘CAN’T PAY, WON’T PAY’ PROTEST HEAR PRIEST TELL THEM TO STAND FIRM was last modified: March 24th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Can’t Pay Won’t Payletterkennyprotestlast_img read more
