What is Flu Pandemic?
Influenza causes seasonal epidemics of disease resulting in an average of 14.8 deaths per 100 000 or 600 deaths in Singapore each year (USA-19.6, Hong Kong-16.4). A pandemic occurs when there is a major change in the influenza virus such that most or all of the world’s population has never been exposed previously and is thus vulnerable to the virus. An influenza pandemic has a greater potential to cause rapid increases in death and illnesses than virtually any other natural health threat.
In Jan 04, health authorities in Vietnam and Thailand reported their first human cases of infection with avian influenza caused by an H5N1 strain. The cases in humans are directly linked to outbreaks of highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in poultry initially reported in Korea in mid-December 2003 and subsequently confirmed in an additional seven Asian countries (Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, China, Laos and Indonesia). As at end 04, no country other than Vietnam and Thailand had reported human cases. In Sep 04, Thailand reported a probable case of inefficient human-to-human transmission in a family cluster. A resurgence of poultry outbreaks and human cases has also been reported in Vietnam since December 2004. In February 2005, Cambodia reported its first human case of avian influenza. As of April 05, there have been 89 reported human cases resulting in 52 deaths. Based on these figures, the fatality rate is 60% with Vietnam and Cambodia continuing to report new cases.

Bird flu case hits Czech Republic The authorities in the Czech reublic have confirmed their first case of the H5N1 bird flu virus. Preliminary tests on a dead swan found last week 130km (80 miles) south of Prague show the bird had the strain, which can be lethal to humans. Further tests are being carried out at the EU reference laboratory in the UK. The European Commission has proposed additional aid to farmers in member states hit by a drop in egg and poultry consumption due to bird flu outbreaks. Thirteen EU countries have now confirmed outbreaks of bird flu, which has killed more than 100 people in Asia since 2003. "A definitive confirmation of the highly-pathogenic type... can be expected from the EU reference laboratory in Weybridge in Great Britain in the middle of next week," the Czech agriculture ministry said in a statement. Spokesman Tomas Loskot said another dead swan had tested positive for the H5 virus and would be tested for the H5N1 strain. The Czech authorities have implemented safety measures in accordance with EU rules - including a protection area around the site on the Vltava river where the swan was found. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4856294.stm
