Government vets have started an investigation after five swans were found dead in Co Down. A mystery disease is one of the lines of investigation |being pursued by scientists |after the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) revealed the discovery was the second of its kind to be probed. In the previous case lesions were discovered, suggesting some sort of bacterial infection. However DARD insists there is no evidence to suggest the deaths are part of a rising trend. The five mute swans were found dead on private land in Killyleagh and it is understood another two birds have fallen ill. The birds were removed so post-mortem examinations could be carried out.

Stings from microscopic jellyfish are plaguing swimmers at popular beaches on Auckland's North Shore. A health warning has been issued for Takapuna, Cheltenham, Narrow Neck and Red Beach after reports of people developing itchy and painful red rashes after swimming. The rashes were very likely caused by microscopic jellyfish, a statement from Auckland Regional Public Health Service said. It said the jellyfish, which are too small to be seen, get caught inside togs and sting covered skin areas once the swimmer gets out of the water. Medical Officer of Health Dr Simon Baker said the problem was likely to spread throughout the Hauraki Gulf amid warm summer weather. "The only sure-fire way of avoiding this rash is not to swim at affected beaches." Tactics for minimising the risk of jellyfish stings include not wearing baggy clothes in the water, removing togs and showering after swimming, said Dr Baker. If swimmers get a rash, cool clothing and calamine lotion may help, he said. "We know this is the time of year that people want to be at the beach. We just want people to have the information they need to make choices for their own and their families' good health." Little is known about the habits of microscopic jellyfish. Until 2008 the rash associated with their sting was thought to be caused by sea lice. However, sea lice tend to bite exposed areas of skin, whereas the jellyfish normally sting beneath togs.

A 22-year-old youth from Jodhpur who is suffering from viral encephalitis has been brought to a city hospital. Doctors said his condition is critical and samples of his blood have been sent to the National Institute of Virology [NIV], Pune. Doctors at the Sterling Hospital said this is the 4th case of viral encephalitis from Jodhpur, Rajasthan, in the hospital. The youth is suffering from high fever, vomiting, and head ache, and also fell unconscious. The test carried out on the cerebral spinal fluid shows inflammation in the brain due to the virus [infection]. There is a possibility of a viral outbreak in the district of Rajasthan. "We have collected his samples and have sent them to NIV to find out which virus is affecting him," said infectious diseases consultant Dr Atul Patel. He said that ascertaining the kind of virus is important as a viral encephalitis outbreak in Bangladesh has claimed 29 lives. Earlier, there were reports of viral encephalitis fever in Chhota Udepur [Gujarat state], which claimed 2 lives. Neurophysician Dr Sudhir Shah said he has seen 4-5 cases from the same area in the past and had also spoken to local physicians about the possibility of a viral outbreak. "A young girl with viral allergy has also been taken to a hospital and earlier too, there were cases of viral encephalitis," said Dr Shah.

Passengers on board Southwest flight 730 from Tampa to Milwaukee describe a scary scene while flying home from Florida. Some passengers couldn't breathe, others had flu like symptoms. There was one nurse on board who told Today's TMJ4 that she tried to help mid-flight. "The stewardess came on and asked was there a nurse or a doctor on the plane. And I'm a nurse, so I raised my hand," Terry Zeuske said. Zeuske didn't have any medical tools or medicine, but did what she could to help after several people got sick mid flight. She said one was: "Blue around the lips; his fingertips were blue. He said he was having trouble breathing. So we got oxygen and put that on him," Zeuske said. "And while I was doing that, they wanted me to go to someone else who was kind of having the same symptoms." Elizabeth Orr-Bell wore a surgical mask on the plane to stay safe. She and a group of friends went on a cruise from Tampa to Cozumel, Mexico. One of her friends got very sick after spending time on the beach in Cozumel. "He was running a high fever and was dehydrated. So we took him down to the ship doctor; they ran some tests on him, gave him some antibiotics, and once we boarded the plane, he wasn't breathing too well," Orr-Bell said. Ambulances, the haz-mat team, and the Milwaukee Health Department were waiting when the plane landed. Two of the sickest passengers, including Orr-Bell's friend, were taken by ambulance to the hospital. The other passengers were quarantined in the International Arrivals Terminal while health officials investigated. Southwest said the plane was sterilized and is back in use.

Twenty cases of typhoid fever have been recorded in Sitio Cabal-asan in Barangay Arpili, Balamban, Cebu as of Sunday. Officials from the Department of Health (DOH) and Integrated Provincial Health Office have visited the mountain village and distributed water disinfectant for residents. The DOH Regional Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit met with villagers to tell them of their situation. Health official Renan Cimafranca said that they conducted the water source in the area tested positive for the typhoid fever bacteria. A blood test was also conducted on 6 residents who showed typhoid fever symptoms. Five of them tested positive. Cimafranca said that based on their investigation, only 9 of the 200 residents of the village have toilets. He said that this contributed to typhoid fever outbreak. The constant rain carries human waste toward villagers’ source of water. Cimafranca urged residents to first boil their water and utensils before using them. Chlorination of the water source was also advised. Cimafranca said the best way to prevent the incident from happening again is for the village to have a better water system. Barangay Captain Emong Paulin said the barangay council has yet to approve a P50,000 project to make sure that the water supplied to houses is safe for drinking.

The deaths of thousands of fish over the past week in the Whangamarino wetland have been caused by very low levels of dissolved oxygen in the water, The Department of Conservation [DOC] says. Department spokesperson Kevin Hutchinson said numerous reports had come in from concerned residents and wetland users about the deaths, numbering possibly in the hundreds of thousands. While most are pests such as koi carp and catfish, native species mullet, bullies and eels have also been found dead. "The drought at the end of 2010 exposed large areas of the wetland and rapid plant growth occurred in areas usually under water. High rainfall in January compounded by the baked dry ground in the catchment meant water rapidly ran off into the wetland and water levels remained consistently high for about three consecutive weeks." Kevin Hutchinson says the decomposing plant matter started a bacterial process which depletes oxygen in the water.

Authorities have found more than 20 dead horses on a farm in West Virginia. The West Virginia Department of Agriculture says it has activated its homeland security incident management team to assess the situation at the property in Greenbrier County. Local reports indicate up to 26 horses have been found dead on the property, thought to be about 300 acres, since a tipoff to county officials on Wednesday. A feed and grain store is just a few hundred metres from the property in Crawley, where the dead animals were found. West Virginia's agriculture commissioner, Gus Douglass, said his department had the duty to ensure the carcasses were disposed of properly to protect the environment and the health of other animals. He said his team left the department's headquarters at Guthrie early on Thursday afternoon local time and would report back once they assess the situation. He said he was disturbed by the discovery. "It seems we're seeing more of these incidents in recent years - particularly with horses - and I find that very distressing. "Farmers have a moral obligation to care for their animals, and the vast majority of them do so. But there are a few that, for whatever reason, fall short of those responsibilities." While the agriculture department has broad authority when it comes to controlling infectious diseases in farm animals, state law gives county sheriffs or their designees authority over animal welfare issues. "Some people believe that the Department of Agriculture is responsible for the welfare of farm animals, but that's simply not the case. "If we receive a report of distressed animals, we can enter a farm to see if the cause is disease related. If not, that's where our authority ends," said One report from West Virginia suggested a law enforcement official visiting the property saw 14 dead horses as he headed up the old road to an abandoned farmhouse on the property. A man is under investigation over the treatment of the horses and faces two counts of midemeanour animal cruelty, a report suggests. Further reports indicate the man at the centre of the investigation has interests in other properties, which are also being checked.

Dozens of poisoned birds fall from the sky above Columbia County
Source: www.cbs6albany.com...


KINDERHOOK -- A couple of residents of Kinderhook in Columbia County collected dozens of dead birds that fell from the sky and littered their yards and nearby tree branches. It turns out that they were European starlings that were poisoned by a U.S. Department of Agriculture program to eradicate bird flocks that threaten dairy farms. Carol Bannerman, a USDA spokeswoman, tells the Kingston Daily Freeman that it's not an uncommon practice for farmers to use pesticide-laced bird seed to kill flocks of starlings. Usually, they die on the farmland, but in this case, the farm was close to town so the bodies were found by rather startled residents. European starlings are an invasive species and as such aren't protected by law like native songbirds are. Bannerman said huge flocks of thousands of starlings may settle on a farm and devour large quantities of feed set out for the cattle.

February 11, 2011 (Vienna, Austria) — The cholera epidemic that developed in Haiti became a multifocal event as it spread throughout South America, due to factors such as air travel and immigration that act as "vectors" of infectious disease, a new report suggests. The findings were reported by Jennifer Malaty, from the Georgetown University Medical Center, in Arlington, Virginia, here at the IMED 2011: International Meeting on Emerging Diseases and Surveillance. "Cholera's sudden emergence in the Americas and the Caribbean after 100 years of silence was a tragic reminder of how mobile pathogens have become," Ms. Malaty told Medscape Medical News.

The recent outbreak of bird flu in Sittwe Township in western Burma's Arakan State has brought great losses for the local poultry farmers as they had to cull thousands of their birds, said one affected farmer. The farmer told Narinjara that he is unable to save his business after all the chickens from his farms were taken by the authorities in the culling. "All 4,000 chickens, worth about ten million kyat, were taken from my farm and culled by the officials. So far, I have not gotten any compensation from the authorities and now it is very difficult for me to restart my business," said the farmer. Officials from the local health and municipal departments have culled thousands of chickens from the poultry farms in the area after finding a strain of the H5N1 virus, also known as the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza - HPAI virus at a farm in Bumay Village in Sittwe Township on 12 January 2011. "As my farm is near the village hit by the flu, all of my chickens have been wiped out by the officials even though they were uninfected. The farms in other nearby villages also faced the same fate and an estimated 50,000 birds from both infected and uninfected farms have been culled by the authorities," said the farmer. Another farmer reported that most of the affected farmers are facing a loss of their livelihood as authorities have neglected to even provide loans, much less compensation, to help them recover from the loss. "There is no compensation or loans being provided by the authorities to the farmers. It is like we had to suffer according to our fate. Apart from this, we have to pay the officials for anti-virus sprays on our farms and for culling the chickens, and now we are facing the ruin of our business," he said. According to a local veterinarian, the virus is now under control as health officials have been closely monitoring the farms in the area after culling the affected birds.

SWINE flu is still a global danger and Australians travelling overseas are being warned to remain vigilant, despite health authorities declaring the threat over in December. The World Health Organisation warning follows the death of Australian tourist Michael Coyle from swine flu in Russia. Mr Coyle, 63, from New South Wales, was on his way to get married in central Russia when a man suffering from swine flu sat next to him on the flight from Hong Kong to Moscow. Mr Coyle contracted the virus and died soon after arriving in Ufa in the remote Volga region last month. It is not known how many other people might have been contaminated on the flight. Health authorities say the threat is not limited to Asia. Since October, Britain has been in the grip of a swine flu epidemic, with 195 people dying from the virus in the past four months, including 18 children aged under 15. The World Health Organisation's Gregory Hä¨rtl said swine flu could be contracted anywhere. ''People everywhere should be aware of and take all precautions they can to prevent or reduce the risk of infection,'' he told The Sunday Age. ''Cases are being reported from around the world.''

The bat's nose was white, as if the thumb-sized animal had poked its gargoyle face into flour. "The first white-nose victim at Hamilton Cave," geologist Wil Orndorff said somberly. "Ever," added colleague Chris Hobson, a zoologist. That white gunk was a fungus believed to cause a torturous disease in bats called white-nose syndrome. In 2009, when scientists last checked Hamilton Cave in far Southwest Virginia, all the bats looked fine. But the mysterious fungus, new to science when it appeared in New York in 2006, is spreading quickly. White-nose has killed more than 1 million bats from New Hampshire to Tennessee, including thousands in Virginia. At some Northeast caves, it has wiped out more than 90 percent of the bats, leaving behind little brown bones like pine needles. "This is like the Great Plague for bats," said Orndorff, who works with Hobson for the state Natural Heritage Program, a conservation office. The disease has caused "the most precipitous decline of North American wildlife in recorded history" and could make entire species of bats go extinct, experts said in a 2009 statement. Scientists are comparing this onslaught to the devastation of the buffalo, the passenger pigeon and the American chestnut tree. And all the bats want to do is eat the mosquitoes that make us miserable and the bugs that damage our crops and gardens.

Health officials are investigating the Playboy Mansion over fears Hugh Hefner's famed property is the source of a recent disease outbreak. More than 75 conference guests who attended a fundraiser at the Los Angeles residence were reportedly struck down by a respiratory infection. Four Swedish men who attended the event were diagnosed with Legionellosis or pontiac fever, a milder form of Legionnaires disease caused by bacteria that thrives in warm air-conditioning systems. A fog machine used at the bash could have spread the illness. Over 700 guests were attending an event on February 3 as part of the annual DOMAINfest Global conference. The three-day conference took place at a hotel in Santa Monica and the final gathering was at a party in the grounds of the iconic Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. Within 48 hours after leaving the mansion, scores of people reported coming down with symptoms including fever, respiratory problems and violent headaches. Many of the victims started tweeting and posting their symptoms on Facebook and that's when organisers of the conference noticed a trend. Elliot J. Silver, who attended the party, said: 'It is scary everyone came down with the same thing at the same time. 'It knocked me on my ass. A lot of people are blaming the Playboy Mansion on the blogs, but you can't be sure.' Playboy spokeswoman Teri Thomerson said the Playboy Mansion was cooperating fully with the Department of Public Health's investigation.

Officials in Mount Vernon are struggling to stay on top of a massive bird invasion. They say there are at least 50,000 birds living in the area. Officials have now set up a bird committee, headed up by water department head Chuck Gray to get rid of the birds by spring. Gray is using chargers that make loud noises, chargers that shoot out sparks to chase the birds, and even a bird cannon. He says the measures are working to clear out the pesky crows, but now blackbirds are a new problem swooping in on the east end of town. Gray says he's not surprised that all kinds of birds keep picking Posey County to land. "They basically have an unlimited food supply, with the trash cans, the 55 pound burn bins we use for trash cans in town, and then we have corn on one side and soybeans on the other side." Resident Edward Lowery says he's glad to hear the city is taking measures to clear the birds out, but he thinks they need to be moving faster. He says in the past three months, blackbird droppings have covered his back patio and the incessant chirping has kept him awake at night. One of his neighbors, Chris Cartwright, agrees. Cartwright says, "It's a health hazard, you know the children they go outside and play, and they get into the bird droppings and everybody knows birds carry diseases." That's why she says she's happy to hear the bird cannon boom, and hopes it will bring some much needed relief, and soon. City officials say it's not really feasible to kill the birds because they would need to be shot down in mass and then cleaned up, making it both messier and more expensive.

New cases of foot-and-mouth disease were confirmed Tuesday in the country's fifth-largest city of Daejeon despite vaccinations in the region, stoking fears over a recurrence of a disease whose spread had thought to have been halted. The Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry said a close inspection confirmed additional cases of the disease at a pig farm in the city's Dong district. Before the latest outbreak, a pig farm in Busan's Saha district had been the last to be affected by the disease Monday last week. Pigs in the affected farm in Daejeon were vaccinated on Jan. 30 and Feb. 5. On the outbreak of the disease despite the vaccination, the ministry said, "Vaccination doesn't guarantee complete immunization against the disease," adding, "Given that suspicious symptoms were found several days ago, we judged that the virus came from affected areas nearby such as those in South Chungcheong Province. Epidemiological studies are underway." Since Friday, more than 100 pigs have died in the farm in Daejeon. Quarantine authorities will cull more than 2,100 pigs at the farm to prevent the disease from spreading. Including Daejeon, the disease has hit 10 metropolitan cities and provinces and 70 lower-level administrative areas nationwide, sparing just Seoul, Ulsan, Gwangju, the two Jeolla provinces and Jeju Island. The number of animals culled has reached 3,333,496.
