Yes many times actually. It would seem that wild birds are less likely to die from it than domestic one's. It has been that way all along and they still have no idea why.
There has in the very recent past been a few outbreaks that "have" killed some wild flocks BUT it wasn't the original strain of h5n1......look at the chart.
Then read a little farther down as to exactly what we knew in 2004 could be the mixing vessel for the next pandemic!

here is one you may have seen but is worth repeating;;;;

Primers for performing RT-PCR tests are being developed and expected to be available shortly. The information on these primers shall be made available on websites of WHO, CDC, Atlanta, Ga and other institutes which may develop these.
Direct immunofluorescence test can be used to ascertain presence of virus using H5N1 specific monoclonal antibody conjugated with a fluoresceing dye.
The laboratory tests for the diagnosis of influenza A/H5 infection included in the case definition are considered the standard for the identification of these viruses. WHO recommends that laboratory results for influenza A/H5 are corroborated by a national influenza centre or other national reference laboratory. Any sample or isolate that is a non-typable influenza A (i.e.non- H3 or non-H1 subtype) should be sent immediately to a WHO collaborating centre on influenza or other WHO-recommended reference laboratory (see Annex 1). WHO also recommends that the first positive laboratory identification of influenza A/H5 virus in humans in any country or territory be confirmed by one of the WHO reference laboratories for diagnosis of influenza A/H5 infection. In addition, and until further notice, WHO requests that all human influenza A/H5 virus isolates or samples be sent to one of the WHO reference laboratories for diagnosis of influenza A/H5 infection.
###Tests for diagnosing all influenza strains of animals and humans are rapid and reliable. Many laboratories in the WHO global influenza network have the necessary high-security facilities and reagents for performing these tests as well as considerable experience. Rapid bedside
tests for the diagnosis of human influenza are also available, but do not have the precision of the more extensive laboratory testing that is currently needed to fully understand the most recent cases and determine whether human infection is spreading, either directly from birds or from person to person###

I've been aware of the oinker in-vivo test-tube for a while now. I've heard that dogs are another possible one, but that they haven't seen it.

Canada has had several incursions of H5N1 into domestic poultry that I've heard of.

The Spanish Flu is considered the most severe of all influenza outbreaks till date. Though the identification of aetiology of the pandemic was not possible at that time, modern day molecular biological techniques have tried to unravel its mystery.

Modern techniques have permitted a reconstitution of some parts of the genome of the 1918 agent by amplifying fragments of viral RNA obtained from different sources.

One of them was anatomopathologic samples of lungs from patients who died of the disease in 1918.

Other samples were obtained after the exhumation of victims of Spanish flu in Alaska and in Svalberg whose bodies had been buried in permafrost ground.

Genetic sequences were obtained by genic amplification of viral RNA extracted from the lung fragments and were compared to recent human and animal viruses.

The comparison showed that the hemagglutin of the 1918 virus was of the H1 subtype belonging to a subgroup of strains infecting human and pigs, but also sharing AVAIN determinants.

Sequence analysis indicates that many avian characteristics are present in critical locations of the hemagglutinin gene such as receptor, antigenic and glycosylation sites suggesting an avian relationship.

However, the virus is closely related to human and swine viruses. Equivalent findings were obtained from the study of the neuraminidase gene : the enzymatic site is preserved but avian characteristics are found in antigenic and glycosylation sites.

These results suggest that the 1918 virus borrowed determinants from AVAIN strains but was already present in mammals for a prolonged period before the pandemic started

I can't conclude it.....go big

We must keep an eye on the southern hemisphere, where number of cases is soaring and it is very likely to syrocket in the following days, as winter is approaching. This will increase the likehhod of the H1N1 to combine with local, seasonal strains, increasing its capacity to mutate in “unpredictable ways”.


the efforts of WHO to deny phase 6, and misplaced surveillance efforts which target international travel, will accelerate the emergence of variants, which will increase the likelihood that containment and vaccine efforts will fail

So, 1918 was in the mammalian population for a long time before it made some new flip that made humans a good population to find a home in.

But this one, it is entirely novel. Not in pigs, other than the ones that got it from a human. Not in humans before September.

So either a human was the mixing vessel, or it has been artifically introduced.

Oh, containment failed more than a month ago. Maybe other countries will contain it. That would feed my theory though.

China contains it. GREAT, because if China has a sudden population decrease due to another virus later ....well that would be what their "wiser heads" have been looking to do to them for a LONG time now. Thin the herd.

Canada has had several incursions of H5N1 into domestic poultry that I've heard of.


Not just Canada--the US too. Here's a list from the US Dept. of Agriculture showing where H5N1 has been found in the US: wildlifedisease.nbii.gov...

On a quick skim of the first 3 pages, I see Iowa, Michigan, Montana, and Maryland.

All the North American cases are low-pathogenic H5N1, but it isn't a big jump from low-path to high-path. And scientists don't know exactly why or how that change occurs.


"An HPAI virus has been generated experimentally by repeat passage of a LPAI virus through chickens by air sac and intracerebral inoculation (Ito et al, 2001) but the exact triggers for this change under natural conditions are not known. In some earlier outbreaks of HPAI, it was evident that the change from a LPAI virus to an HPAI virus followed introduction of LPAI virus to large flocks of commercial poultry. This change apparently occurred within a matter of days in some outbreaks..."

You know, with the odd symptoms for this flu - vomiting and diarrhea - it is possible that doctors would have mistaken it as a norovirus.

You know what. There was an outbreak of a norovirus like infection in several places in Canada this winter. But while I checked to see if it was ever caught on the Canadian surveillance it never was. There was enough of it in Brandon Manitoba that it should have hit their surveillance stats, but it never did.

I keep thinking about this more. At least two people I know of who had this worked in a seniors' home. But even though seniors in these home would be suspectible, they didn't seem to get it. The adults under 60 and the children, and the big strong guys particularly seemed to take it pretty hard on the chin though.

Around Brandon, there are many pig farms.
