Here we go again. Next comes the public panic. Sigh, not really in the mood for the next superbug scare.
Yeah these new flu strains just suck. We all had swine flu last year.
Just what we need.........
More panic. Great.
Just two people come down with it.....I would love to know how THEY got the virus to begin with. I would be surprised if it comes from a chicken vendor that has it when they bought a chicken for the family's dinner.
There have been several cases of avian flu over recent years. Look at this on the WHO website. Why get all excited over Hong Kong? lol The media just likes to get everyone riled up.
Also many countries reported recent avaian flu outbreak in domestic poultry
Yes media is very good about spreading the panic attacks to folks.
Here we go again, another roller coaster ride and more education.
Mice vaccinated with full-length HA were fully protected from challenge with VN/1203/04. We next evaluated the efficacy of adenovirus-based vaccination in domestic chickens, given the critical role of fowl species in the spread of HPAI worldwide. A single subcutaneous immunization completely protected chickens from an intranasal challenge 21 days later with VN/1203/04, which proved lethal to all control-vaccinated chickens within 2 days. These data indicate that the rapid production and subsequent administration of recombinant adenovirus-based vaccines to both birds and high-risk individuals in the face of an outbreak may serve to control the pandemic spread of lethal avian influenza

New vaccine production is done in medium filled plastic bags on rocker tables (recombinant). Don't have to use eggs, etc.
