Another migratory bird found infected with bird flu virus H5
Central News Agency
2015-01-19 09:44 PM

Taipei, Jan. 19 (CNA) A Naumann's thrush (???), a migratory bird uncommon to Taiwan, was confirmed Monday to be infected with an avian flu virus of the H5 subtype, prompting concerns over the state of monitoring migratory birds as the disease continues to spread. The thrush was found dead on Jan. 16 in Pingtung County, southern Taiwan, according to a local animal health agency. In wake of the confirmed infection of three Chinese bulbuls (???) earlier in the day and the wider outbreak of avian flu among domestic poultry, Pingtung Magistrate Pan Men-an (???) urged the central government for more comprehensive monitoring of wild birds. County and city governments have limited resources that prevent them carrying out such a task, Pan said, asking for subsidies to put up nets around fowl farms to prevent intrusion by wild birds. As of Monday, over 520,000 chickens, geese and ducks have been culled in the wake of the outbreak, and officials estimate that 1 million chickens will end up being culled by the time the disease is eradicated in Taiwan.

(CNA reporter YANG Shu Min Taipei 20 (Xinhua)) poultry for examination avian influenza virus, the last anti-CIQ first announced three resident birds bulbul corpse experience of H5N3, today announced Pingtung birds Dusky thrush infected H5 and Kaohsiung migratory bird excrement found to have H7N9, But none of migratory birds found to the epidemic virus. Since last December in Taiwan since the outbreak of bird flu, namely one kind of old H5N2, as well as three kinds of Taiwan in the past never happened novel H5N2, H5N8 and H5N3. These four are highly pathogenic, H5N2 old base has four, the other three up to six. Animal Health Research Council of Agriculture director explained Cai Xiangrong, high and low pathogenic in chickens do all means test, appeal and mortality will produce, not people. Announced today H7N9, H7N9 avian happened because Shanghai successor attention. Council of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine Bureau Trend in said the Kaohsiung Branch Jiading wetland birds duck excrement detection of H7N9 subtype avian influenza virus, and the Chinese mainland Shanghai successor of outgoing H7N9 subtype avian virus strain is different, but with the Taiwan in the past such as Ilan found to low pathogenic H7N9 similar, do not worry contagious person. Cai Xiangrong supplement, determine the occurrence of avian-human transmission of H7N9 Shanghai is different, because this gene sequence strains Shanghai, in order from waterfowl (ducks and geese) to terrestrial birds (chicken, turkey, ostrich) must adapt to the emergence of "a characteristic defect "But the experience of the H7N9 Taiwan did not, so I do not like. In addition, Shanghai will be the successor of H7N9 is low pathogenic. Township, Pingtung County Magistrate governance picked up the bodies of Thrush wildfowl highly pathogenic H5 subtype detected in the new, yet to confirm the full virus type. Anti-seizure Bureau announced yesterday Miaoli 3 bulbul confirmed the corpse H5N3, but bulbul is resident birds (migratory birds and poultry exist between, and not like, like migratory birds, but also non-human feeding), not migratory birds. Trend in that the current monitoring of migratory birds did not test this one out of the four kinds of virus outbreak type. She reiterated that the judge COA still believes that the three kinds of Taiwan's new migratory birds brought the virus occurred. Cai Xiangrong and say, did not see dead birds, does not mean that there is no death, good physical flew to Taiwan, the three kinds of Taiwan have not had a virus brought. In addition, today's social studies professor at National Taiwan University, Taiwan animals and School of Public Health, Institute of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine Jinchuan Chun held a press conference presented research report, still advocate the new H5N2 likely come from the old type H5N2 mutation should publish all bird flu genetic studies of 8, confirmed clearly benefit the epidemic precise planning and operations.
