logically it is already known
it is H5N1, but I guess the analysis is not just a "mix this solution, and if it turns pink then it is H5N1"
kind of analysis, they have to wait for the virus to reproduce in lab environment, if I am not wrong.
Im sure you know that both Danube and Manyas are National Parks, Bird Heavens for migrating birds. so that is the reason why further cases of bird flu
could be seen here. as of today 8000 birds have been killed in the 7 km radius of the case in Manyas (not the ones migrating to the Park but the
livestock). the cause was obviously free circulation of the livestock, where they rotutinely was being freed to fields for Animal Wellfare
they are not that well
now afterall are they, with the reason they are all dead.
and there is no way to stop the spread of the bird flu unless you are planning to wipe the birds from face of the earth starting with wiping the
national parks of birds. and h5N1 is not transmissable from human to human yet. so all the nightmare scenarious are ffor when the virus mutates. yet
it didnt mutate for 2 years. the danger is when a human (a bird handler most possibly) eventually gets the virus and at the same time gets the usual
human flu virus, there is a possibility of the virus to be mutated which is what the WHO etc. is warning about.
currently the situation is lots more grave for the birds (wild and livestock) than it is for humans.
even if you install webs above the cities, no one can escape the power of the deadly droppings.
edit: not to forget the case in Manyas is oficially confirmed as being H5N1 after analysis. yet romania has to send the samples to UK to get an
analysis, or the UK scientists with equipment has to go to Romania which seems is the case.
