Officials have begun the slaughter of thousands of chickens in India as they find H5N1.

Authorities in Manipur in India's north-east, have started killing all poultry in the state's capital, Imphal, after an outbreak of bird flu.

More than 150,000 birds and backyard poultry will be killed within a week, a state official said.

The deadly H5N1 virus has been reported from a poultry farm near Imphal where 133 chickens have died in four days.

The virus can cause illness and death in humans, but scientists say the chances of being infected are very low.

Officials say the special focus is on a five-km area around the infected poultry farm at Chingmeirong, near Imphal, from where the outbreak of avian influenza has been reported

So far, measures to prevent the feared pandemic seem to have worked, but it keeps popping up.

It does keep popping up but it doesnt seem to have slaughtered as many humans as the scientists were claiming does it?

A look at those that did die show them to be actually living with the chickens, with some of the boys in Turkey who died seen to be playing with bits of dead birds.

Ive got chickens, luv em to bits, but I wouldnt sleep with em !

Health officials in India were monitoring four children suffering from fever on Wednesday after they had contact with dead or sick poultry in Manipur state, where authorities are fighting a bird flu outbreak in fowl.

They also mention checking on 230,000 people so far for flu symptoms .

Yes, I saw this the other day - it seems they're taking it pretty seriously.

Do you remember when avian flu was first found?

We were all going to die horrible deaths and the earth would be wiped out etc etc.

I'm trying to find out what else was going on at the time and see if something was "buried" under the media hysteria about h5n1.

1996Highly pathogenic H5N1 virus is isolatedfrom a farmed goose in Guangdong Province, China.

1997 Outbreaks of highly pathogenic H5N1 are reported in poultry at farms and wet markets in Hong Kong.Human infections with H5N1 are reported in Hong Kong. Altogether, 18 cases (6 fatal) are reported in the first known instance of human infection with this virus . 1968 saw a lot of flu deaths .. H3N2 virus.
budski Guangdong 1996 .. something buried .. would be in the deep hole there .. wonder if it was floating... just drifting in the cool winds on a picture perfect lake .

Kids test negative for BF all completed tests also are negative .

Throat swab and tissue samples of the four boys had been sent for testing but no sign of bird flu was found.
"They are negative," Vineet Chawdhry, a joint secretary in the health ministry, told Reuters on Friday.

I was thinking more of when the current scare began.

One of the first big reports was feb 16 2006, when the virus first came to public prominence, and lots of air time was dedicated to it. I've found 2 stories of relevance to the UK - 2 stories which the Blair regime don't like to talk about.

Finance matters for the met police in the above link.

Un calling for guantanamo closure in 2nd link.

I'm sure there's plenty more.

While BF world tour took off in 2006 , many laws changed also all laws mentioned under pandemic , terror environment . Police laws , to chicken laws , many countries as the tour developed laws slipped in giving all different powers to different areas , I am confused not many said BOO to the new laws . I find them just as scary as the thought of a pandemic . Pan flu was in the same sentence as terrorism with changing laws .
Impact of environmental change on the police function

These in turn will affect areas such as water availability, agricultural viability, disease levels, flooding and the movement of people.
greater health consequences such as pandemics and infectious diseases;
Such changes raise fundamental questions around human security, survival and stability of nations to the extent that climate change will quickly become the security issue for the 21st century.

It is possible that security could be undermined by phenomena such as:

increasing food, water and energy scarcities;
increasing unregulated population movements;
more frequent and more severe natural disasters;
greater health consequences such as pandemics and infectious diseases;
pressures on state borders including the emergence of diasporas formed as smaller states are displaced; and
The previous five events combining to weaken some states.

Down in OZ laws will be same as in 1900 . We're screwed if they put these laws into action . An Aussie ABC interview link .

Bird flu: risks, laws and rights.

Scientists, lawyers, politicians, security forces—everyone's walking a fine line with avian flu, between the rights of the individual and the rights of the wider public. When a pandemic happens each of us will be on our own, as the authorities look at the big picture. Reporter, Ian Townsend. (Originally broadcast 16 July 2006)

Just seems to be another case of the government saying "Oh, here's a threat that you can't handle on your own AND THATS WHY YOU NEED US!!!"

Not a distraction type thing, just something for the gov't to prop up their "legitimacy".

Yes agree they make police states , but then they say like here in OZ and USA ... You are on your own , don't expect help .. if a health caused pandemic happens . But we have tough new laws in place , but you will be on your own . same message for long time now . Airport hangers will be home to passengers until dead or cleared of infection , note how long test results take now .... pack extra undies in case ..of unexpected stay overs in hangers if traveling by air ..or bus or train or ship or just traveling to Nana's place in next state . Laws are in place be aware of them and be prepared . You will be on your own is the message .
