- Patient's infection source is the chicken which edible
includes the virus, the duck, the goose and its the egg product or the
above living specimen contact. The patient after the infection internal
heat birds and beasts flu, the virus meets the ambush, the usual incubation
period is 15 days, crosses the patient after the incubation period to be
able to appear the blood to be hot, the hands and feet department massively
sheds skin, has the red spot phenomenon, the patient lungs can appear the
high fever which continues, causes cough which the patient appears suppresses
with difficulty, and has the discontinuity to have a poor appetite, dizziness,
the body becomes emaciated and so on the symptom, the partial partners
have the flu symptom, the partial crowds have the immunity to this type
virus, this virus at present treats unusual complex, belongs to the stubborn
disease, at present China's many places merely list as this disease the
simple chronic pneumonia, the chronic bronchitis, virulent flu, Chinese
medicine rebirth all kinds
- The above machine translated boxun report suggests that
large inflows of patients in China, including Guandong province, are due
to H5N1 bird flu. Many of the infections originate in various forms of
food (probably uncooked or undercooked) and have a long incubation period
of about two weeks.
- The infections are misdiagnosed, which is similar to
reports of 1918 flu pandemic. This latest boxun report, in conjunction
with earlier reports of 10 different H5N1 strains in China is cause for
concern. Eight of the ten strains were found in humans and the range of
symptoms was broad, including those with mild flu-like conditions. The
most virulent human strain was RK7, which would appear to be the virulent
Qinghai Lake strain recently described in Nature and Science. This strain
could cause a catastrophic pandemic because of transport by migratory birds.
The Qinghai outbreak was quickly followed by deaths of ducks and geese
on farms in Xinjiang and China has not responded to a WHO request for an
on site visit to the Xinjiang areas. There have also been reports of pneumonia
clusters in Tacheng, site of on soutbreak and boxun reports have provided
detail on fatal H5N1 human cases in Qinghai.
- These data strongly suggest that the pandemic stage is
at five or six, although WHO maintains that it is at three indicating all
of the familial clusters, including the latest in Indonesia, are mere coincidences
and not due to human-to-human transmission (stage four is defined by small
dead end human-to-human transmission clusters).
- WHO's position is not scientifically valid and encourages
under-reporting, which appears to be rampant in China, where a raging stage
six flu pandemic may be happening.
