India isolates 26 people on bird flu fears

India put 26 people in isolation after they fell sick while culling poultry in a state affected by bird flu, while medical staff were monitoring hundreds of others, officials said on Friday.

Those quarantined in the eastern state of West Bengal complained of fever and respiratory distress over the past few days, but health staff said it was unlikely they had bird flu.

India has not reported any human infection of the H5N1 bird flu virus in its four outbreaks of avian influenza since 2006.

While there is no indication they actually contracted H5N1, this is troubling to say the least.

It has been a while since I have posted on this subject. Like many, I have been kind of burned out on the H5N1 hysteria. Of course, one day it is very possible the 'hysteria' will be justified.

I just hope I don't see that in my lifetime.
