Israel had confirmed an H5N1 outbreak in poultry. Over the summer, the Fujian strain (clade 2.3.2) was identified in wild birds in the Uves Lake region (Mongolia and Russia). In the past H5N1 in Uvs Lake migrated to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, raising concerns that the Fujian strain would follow suit.

The H5N1 outbeak in Israel may signal the arrival of the Fujian strain, which has never been reported in humans, wild birds, or poultry outside of Asia.

The Health Ministry said Tuesday that the strain of bird flu discovered earlier would not infect humans. The Ministry said that it had taken steps to protect workers dealing with culling the infected birds, and that in previous incidents of bird flu no humans had been affected.

Health officials report the bird flu does not pass from poultry to humans, but nevertheless, those persons who were in contact with the infected birds will receive prophylactic Tamiflu.

Kibbutz Ein Shemer near Hadera, south of Haifa (north), said Moshe Haïmowitch

http://www.demotix.com/news/231705/bird ... red-israel


they did put it under bio-security _after_ the outbreak was discovered ?

quarantine in all poultry enclosures within a 10-kilometer radius of the Caesarea-area kibbutz. Lab samples have been collected from 120 bird flocks in eight communities in the area.

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1145655.html

it says H5N1 in the headline, but not in the body

-------edit-----------
ahh, yes, the report says H5N1

Causal agent Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus
Serotype H5N1

maybe he means : "in Israel"

that's common to consider the own country as the entire world
