Kemenkes: Boy Dies Due to Bird Flu
January 19, 2012
http://www.republika.co.id/ber...
Jakarta, Indonesia:  Ministry of Health (Kemkes) in a statement here on Thursday, said the death of the girl with the initials AS (5) on Monday (16 / 1) was positive for bird flu.  The U.S. is the nephew of PD (23) who died on January 7, 2012 ago and also tested positive for bird flu and the two alleged victims have contracted the H5N1 virus from the same source of PD's pet birds.

"Since entering the hospital, U.S. patients have been given help and given medication, but this bird flu death rate is quite high," said Director General of Disease Control and Environmental Health (P2PL) Tjandra Yoga Aditama here on Thursday.

H5N1 Fatal Cluster In Tanjung Priok North Jakarta Indonesia
Recombinomics Commentary

Because of his condition continued to decline, eventually the patient died on January 16, 2012 at around 2:00 pm.

Bird flu actually detected on her 5-year-old woman with the initials U.S. in Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta, Jakarta Province. This is confirmed by the Ministry of Health Directorate General of Disease Control and Environmental Health. New cases of H5N1 have also been confirmed by the Center for Basic Biomedical and Health Technology, Health Research Agency.

The above translation describes another fatal case (5F) in Tanjung Priok in North Jakarta who was the sister of a WHO confirmed case (23M who died January 7) who raised pigeons.  The 9 day gap in dates of death raises concerns that the cluster was due to human to human transmission.
This Indonesian cluster follows a cluster in Bali, which involved a mother and her son and daughter.  Those sequences which had multiple receptor binding domain changes (D187N, A188G, R193M) were released almost immediately (Snip)
These receptor binding domain changes continues to increase concerns that the multiple chnages in circulation will recombine to produce combinations similar to those censored at Nature and Science which produced efficient transmission in a ferret model.

Comment on the above case
The following is an article posted by History Lover on Jan. 12th. The officials stated the 5 year old sister (it says brother here but it was a little girl) negative for H5N1 and she was "given a clean bill of health". The brother had died and was stated as H5N1 positive. It says that 10 contacts were tested and I think it was later announced they were negative. Now we find out the 5 year old sister died of bird flu too. I have to wonder what the real truth was on the 10 contacts.

Indonesia: 5-Year-Old Brother of Bird Flu Victim Cleared by Doctors

Health authorities in Jakarta on Monday gave the 5-year-old brother of a young man who recently died of bird flu a clean bill of health.

The toddler, identified only as A.S.R., was hospitalized with a fever and cough on Saturday, the same day his 23-year-old brother, P.D.Y., died of the disease.

"The laboratory results for the brother of the victim came back negative," Dien Emmawati, the head of Jakarta's health office, said on Monday.

Officials have confirmed that P.D.Y. had bird flu. He died at a bird flu referral hospital in Tangerang after the main hospital in the capital was unable to accommodate him because of a lack of space.

Dien said her office, along with the Ministry of Health's research and development agency, had taken blood samples from about 10 people who had been in close contact with P.D.Y. before his death for testing.

"Officials stepped up their monitoring of residents in the surrounding area on Saturday and the intense monitoring will remain in place for two weeks, so we will know immediately if anyone else has been infected," she said.

The health office has also distributed Tamiflu to area residents to protect them from infection. Continued: http://www.thejakartaglobe.com...

Comment
Niman say's, "These receptor binding domain changes continues to increase concerns that the multiple changes in circulation will recombine to produce combinations similar to those censored at Nature and Science which produced efficient transmission in a ferret model."

He is talking about the recent research done by Ron Fouchier in the Netherlands that produced an airborne and more virulent strain of H5N1 virus in ferets. Based on the multiple receptor binding domain changes seen in the recent released sequences, Niman thinks nature is accomplishing the same thing that was done in the laboratory.

More on the little 5 year old girl that died
This was translated and posted on Jan. 12th by History Lover. Supposedly she was H5N1 negative and symptom free enough to move out of isolation into a regular room. In reality, the little girl died and was H5N1 positive. This is why I believe very little of what the government in Indonesia reports on these cases of bird flu. IMO, there is a lot of cover up that has been going on for way to long.

Two Bird Flu Suspects Negative

Bird flu suspect Adra Soraya Ramadani, 5, is no longer treated in a special isolation room bird flu patient in Friendship Hospital, East Jakarta.  Adra has moved to the regular treatment room after the test results in real time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) from the laboratory of National Health Research and Development (Research and Development) Ministry of Health indicates that the corresponding negative (-) exposed to the H5N1 virus. http://www.mediaindonesia.com/...

Has the virus mutated away from the PCR test?
Or was it never very good in the first place?

How many cases are being missed (esp if the patients are in early stages and Tamiflu cleans it up)? Would they continue testing if the patients weren't sick/dead?

Would a pandemic strain be picked up by the PCR test or would it too be a mutation too far from the original?


[ Parent ]
Hi UK - Bird
I don't have a definite answer on that as I have not seen any info published. WHO knows but aren't telling us anything. The rapid test has never been that reliable, IMO. The PCR is a much more accurate test but with the changes in the virus that have occurred that could have changed. You have to have the correct primers to have an accurate test results.

Remember, there are several to many stains of the H5N1 circulating. Not all are identical and I suspect some are more easily contracted than others. Some are probably easier to detect too. I strongly suspect cases are being missed with either false negatives or in people who have a milder case of it. There could also be cases in remote areas where people don't have access to medical care and so they goes unnoticed.

(Wikipedia) Primers: A primer is a strand of nucleic acid that serves as a starting point for DNA synthesis. They are required for DNA replication because the enzymes that catalyze this process, DNA polymerases, can only add new nucleotides to an existing strand of DNA. The polymerase starts replication at the 3'-end of the primer, and copies the opposite strand..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P...

"Since entering the hospital, U.S. patient was given help and given medication, but this bird flu mortality rate for patients is quite high, about 70-80 percent," said Director General of Disease Control and Environmental Health (P2PL) Tjandra Yoga Aditama when contacted by  journalists, in Jakarta, Thursday (01/19/2012).

U.S., a resident of Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta, was a nephew of PD (23) who died on January 7, 2012 and also tested positive for bird flu.  Both victims were believed to have contracted the H5N1 virus from the same source, namely PD's pet birds.  U.S. surveillance teams discovered during an investigation conducted in the region on January 7, 2012 or after the death of the uncle.  The victim was found to have symptoms of fever since the day before and was referred to the department of Friendship which directly provided intensive care in isolation rooms in accordance with the administrative examination for bird flu suspects.

"Since the beginning, U.S. was actually declared negative review, but was given the drug despite the negative and given continuous observation," said Tjandra.

Upon examination three times for the Polymirasea Chain Reaction (PCR), they found a negative result of bird flu for U.S.  But according to Tjandra, subsequent examination ie on January 13 were found positive PCR results that declared bird flu.  The patient also experienced shortness of breath and performed medical procedures in accordance with procedures but because his condition continued to decline, eventually the patient died on January 16, 2012 at around 2:00 pm.

Based on the epidemiological investigation into the patient's house and the surrounding environment by Kemkes Team and the local health office, information was obtained that U.S. was often brought into the workshop where PD, the uncle, kept pigeons.  The poor kid was often invited to the pigeon ranch owned by friends of PD and are often given food without washing hands after holding a dove.

Tjandra said with the increase in one case that the number of cases of bird flu in Indonesia since the year 2005 cumulative 184 cases with 152 deaths with two deaths in 2012.  DG P2PL, vocal point as the International Health Regulations (IHR), have also informed of this case to the WHO.
In addition, Tjandra reminded people that as long as there are still cases of bird flu in poultry, the possibility of transmission to humans is still there.

"Therefore, the community is expected to protect themselves by living a clean and healthy behaviors (PHBs), particularly the behavior of washing hands with soap (HWWS) especially at five critical time is before meals, after defecation, before feeding, before preparing food, after cleaning a baby and after contact with animals," he explained.

Minister of Health: Status Still Bird Flu Outbreaks
January 20, 2012

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - The government has not revoked the status of extraordinary occurrence (KLB) bird flu since established in 2006, although the number of fatalities continues to decline each year.

"The status of the bird flu outbreak is not yet lifted from 2006," Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih ministry after a coordination meeting in the building area of ​​Public Welfare Ministry of Health, Jakarta, on Friday.

She believed that the status of bird flu has not been upgraded to a pandemic because there is no signal epidemiology and virology of the H5N1 virus in Indonesia.  Even so, the whole range of guaranteed health minister will remain alert to face the disease was transmitted from poultry, including alerting the 100 hospitals that have the capacity to care for patients with suspected bird flu in various regions in Indonesia.

Minister also ensure that stockpiles bird flu drug oseltamivir or Tamiflu available in sufficient quantities and are provided free of charge distributed in various health facilities.  "In addition to that deployed in the area, there is also a buffer stock of more than 1 million doses in the center. Preparedness us high enough," said Minister of Health.

In addition, the Ministry of Health also keep doing the sampling of the people who went to a health center with symptoms of flu to determine if the flu that affects only a seasonal flu or bird flu. Samples of bird flu there are also examined in the laboratory to see if there is a mutation of the virus strains but have not found any mention Menkes mutation to date.

Indonesia Health Minister Suspects Bird Flu is Immune to Drug
January 20, 2012
http://www.mediaindonesia.com/...
Jakarta, Indonesia:  Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih suspects that in Indonesia the possibility of resistance (drug resistance) to the drug oseltamivir has occurred.  The hypothesis was made based on the presence of some positive victims of bird flu in Indonesia who still died despite oseltamivir having been given early.

"I suspect that the oseltamivir resistance has occurred in Indonesia.  That is why the death rate of bird flu patients here reaches more than 80% when oseltamivir was given," said Minister of Health at a press conference after the ministerial coordination meeting to discuss bird flu on Friday (20 / 1), in Jakarta.  She said there may exist a specific gene in the H5N1 virus in Indonesia that caused the virus to be more virulent than the H5N1 virus that is in other countries.

"Honestly, I was curious as a former researcher with the possibility of the existence of this gene," she said.

If there is resistance to oseltamivir, Indonesia no longer has a drug to counteract the spread of the H5N1 virus.  Because oseltamivir is the only drug that can kill the flu virus, although with certain prerequisites and conditions.

Bird Flu: Uncle And Niece Lives Taken Away.
Saturday, 21 January 2012.

Earlier this year in Jakarta bird flu has claimed two lives. Both uncle and nephew are the Puguh Dwi Yanto, 23, and Andra Soraya Ramadhani, 5, residents of South Road Sunter, North Jakarta.

Puguh died on Saturday (7 / 1) and Andra Monday (16 / 1). Andra died at Friendship Hospital, East Jakarta. Initially he was suspected of having dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). Sriyati, 48, victim's mother, said that after the death of bird flu positive Puguh, Soraya was immediately taken to the Hospital (RS) Friendship, East Jakarta.

Soraya was treated for three days from September 7 to 10 January in the ICU. At that time the doctor stated, Andra negative so that the bird flu on January 11 was moved to a general ward. However, on January 13, Andra condition deteriorated so instantly taken to the ICU again.

Seeing Andra condition, doctors had advised blood transfusion. When Soraya was allegedly hit by dengue.

Two Reasons Adra Not Helped From Bird Flu

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta: Chairman Research Center of the Universitas Airlangga about Bird Flu (Avian Influenza-zoonosis Reseach Center), C. A. Nidom raised two assumptions why was not helped Adra Soraya Ramadani, 5 years, the patient was infected by bird flu. According to him, there were two possibilities because the change in the status of Soraya bird flu of the negative became positive until the pre-schoolers died last January 16.

Firstly, had the error taking of the sample. Because Soraya fever time was adjacent to the period infected the uncle, Puguh Dwi Yanto that more previously died. She possibly was affected by the exposure to the virus along with the man 23 years. "This means that must be when his sample was taken, the virus was already there," said Nidom, when being contacted, on Saturday January 21 2012.

So, result of the PCR test the pre-schoolers should be positive. If results of the negative, were significant, "there was the error in the taking [the sample]. His taking was not correct," said Nidom. He explained, this was related the taking technique of the sample. Apart from the sample of blood, the taking of the sample of saliva or mucus of the bird flu patient must be also done through nasopharyngeal or the part between the nose and the throat.

It was the implement have the shape of like cotton bud long was put into the nose until the tip was used to take this sample. Or also could through the mouth, was put until touched antil-antil. "If his taking was correct, could get," obviously him.

The second Nidom assumption, the virus of the Soraya body has entered down to the lungs so as to be not detected during the taking of the sample. "Could be his virus has developed damaged the organ, has entered the part of the lungs," he explained. The virus trip, said Nidom, started from the nose, the throat, entered the lungs, then rose to the nose again.

Sunday, 22 January 2012 05:28

JAKARTA- The Ministry of Health has prepared a policy scenario to anticipate the possibility of the H5N1 virus resistance (immune) to the drug oseltamivir.

Director General of Disease Control and Environmental Health Tjandra Yoga Aditama Kemenkes revealed yesterday, the first option that is selected if there is resistance is to give high doses of oseltamivir in patients with suspected (suspect) and bird flu positive. The second option, using antiviral drugs oseltamivir derivatives, such as zanamivir under the brand name Relenza.

However, Tjandra said, the use of second-line drugs can not be haphazard because it can cause a lot of impact. One of them is the possibility the virus will develop more malignant.

Drugs recommended by the Institute for the World Health Organization (WHO) for the treatment of bird flu is on the market oseltamivir Tamiflu trademarked. Oseltamivir is not sold freely due to this drug is the only one to kill the H5N1 virus. "All countries are still using oseltamvir," said Tjandra.

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Bird flu or avian influenza is a disease originating in animals (zoonosis) due to the spread of the H5N1 virus. The virus is frequently mutated in various formats that can not be simulated using a lot of scientific approach.

Indonesia is a tropical country prone to the spread of this disease, as had happened in the countries of the world's middle latitudes.

However, the government through the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Agriculture and other relevant agencies have a mechanism to prevent and control bird flu by default according to international standards of WHO.

What are the steps? In general, if there are patients with suspected bird flu according to certain criteria, then the health worker would do three things. Speaking of that criterion, among them in the last 24 hours someone has a fever or rash - either high or not - and is known to make physical contact with poultry.

Also if known birds in the vicinity of a person suspected of contracting it suddenly ill and died.

In terms of personnel, it is the first step officers of Animal Husbandry Department of Health and local businesses will go to the field or around the house suspected to examine the people who make contact or contact with suspected patients.

Officers will check whether the contact has symptoms of flu and if there is it will be checking the temperature and state of the clinic on a regular basis if necessary and given preventive medication if needed.

Health care workers also will examine the environment around the house to see the problems of environmental sanitation and the Animal Husbandry Department will inspect poultry, both clinical and laboratory that can be a rapid test, culture or PCR.

The second step was to treat the patient suspect good that his sign was minor or especially severe, to RS reconciliation.

A third step is to take samples from the patient's body tissue to be examined at the Laboratory Balitbangkes to ascertain whether the patient with suspected bird flu infected or not.

"If you will already have results and the results were indeed positive for bird flu, then the result will be posted on the website the Ministry of Health and reported to WHO as part of the IHR," said Tjandra.

Whereas if the results were negative, the patient admitted to hospital with suspected who had handled the situation will remain appropriate clinical medicine procedures / treatments available.

So, if there are people around us experience things like that then do not hesitate to contact or inform the authorities in their respective environments.

Jakarta, Indonesia:  Bird Flu in Indonesia during the year 2012 did not mutate, so it is still the same as before, namely receptor alpha 2.3.  Scientifically this virus is similar to human viruses in Indonesia during 2007, so there is no "sustained transmission" (ongoing transmission).  Ministry of Health ensured that with 2 scientific evidences, it can be ascertained to date there is no transmission of bird flu among humans.

"This is the second scientific evidence," said Director General of Disease Control and Environmental Health (P2PL) Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) Tjandra Yoga Aditama in a press release on Tuesday (01/24).

Based on data from WHO, during 2012, from January 1 to 20, 2012, there have been 7 reported cases of Avian Influenza in the world, 3 in Egypt, 2 in Indonesia, one in China and one in Cambodia.  Meanwhile, in January 2011, in the world there were 6 cases of Avian Influenza.  That is, the number of cases in the world in January 2011 compared with January 2012 are not much different.  Tjandra Yoga added that the drug oseltamivir for bird flu in Indonesia is available free of charge.  The drug is available in various health care facilities.  

"Currently, there are more than 1.4 million tablets ready to launch again if necessary for patients with suspected bird flu," he added.

This is a very technical article
as it mentions 'receptor alpha 2.3'. I presume it's a technical web site for doctors etc?

If I'm remembering right, it's receptor alpha 2.6 that we're dreading.

Carol@SC promised me she would read this article and explain it.
As everyone knows, I am scientifically challenged!  I'll ask her to answer your question, because I would also like to know.

Hi UK - Bird
I have my friend History Lover snowed into thinking I actually know something besides my own name and as we know, I get that confused quite often by forgetting to take off the mask & cape! LOL

"Bird Flu in Indonesia during the year 2012 did not mutate, so it is still the same as before, namely receptor alpha 2.3"

What this means is that the virus can still only attach to the 2,3 gal receptors in the deep lung. They are cone shaped like those in the respiratory system of birds/poultry. You are correct about what we fear happening. If the H5N1 virus becomes able to bind to the 2,6 gal receptors then it will be easily passed H2H (airborne) by just a sneeze or a cough from an infected person. The 2,6 gal receptors are found in the upper respiratory tract.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. --Unknown

Thanks Carol.

Oh you guys are just so modest!
When in reality you're all very smart cookies :-)

Did you expect 10 years ago to be typing 'if the H5N1 virus becomes able to bind to the 2,6 gal receptors then it will be easily passed H2H' with such confidence of being right? And what you know about PCR tests and primers would impress most doctors. AND you look so sexy in mask and cape that it's no wonder you don't want to take it off.

The flu trackers are so expert now, they could be working as multi language translators (if they're not already).

Thanks History Lover and Carol@SC!

See there.... now I've got you snowed too! LOL
Thank you for the compliments. You are a very sweet,  smart and classy lady.

However two days after returning from RS Hermina to be treated at home then casualties's body hot again rose high so as again was brought to RW Royal Taruma, Grogol there casualties were again treated inpatient for nine days.

But because hot never descended, the side of RS Royal Taruma referred directly to RS Persahabatan.

The hospital side that took part in delivering casualties's body at that time put on the cover mask of the mouth and the hospital side forbade casualties's family to open the coffin.

Kasudin Kesehatan of the City Administration West Jakarta Parwathi Mayun said, his side has gotten the report from Litkesbang RS Persahabatan, that described casualties as negative infected the bird flu virus.

"The report that was obtained by us from Litkesbang RS Persahabatan casualties died not because infected the bird flu virus because results of the test of the laboratory stated the negative," mentioned Parwathi.

About the coffin that might not be opened, explained Parwathi, that was a procedure as the form of anticipation from each hospital. "Although the assumption infected the bird flu virus and was treated was the same as the positive person infected the positive bird flu virus so that not until spread in that was other," he said.

Fatal Suspect H5N1 Case In Tangerang Indonesia
Recombinomics Commentary

Patient suspect bird flu, Rohmat (18), resident of RT 09/03, Ciodeng Village, Village Blooms Jaya, District Panongan, Tangerang regency, died after being treated for five days in critical condition in RSU Tangerang District, on Wednesday.

Previously the patient's condition was critical since it first entered isolation space bird flu," said Public Relations RSU Tangerang Regency Ahmad Muchlis when confirmed on her cell phone. According Muchlis, until now is still not clear whether Rohmat died from bird flu or not. "There is no certainty. But the results of observations in the home environment Rohmat by the Health Department yesterday was negative bird flu," he said. He added that the next will Rohmat shrouded corpse in the mortuary. Chances are, he said, Rohmat not take home to his family home. "The possibility is not taken home, but immediately buried," explained Muchlis.

The above translation describes the death of a suspect H5N1 case (18M) in Tangerang, Indonesia, which is on the northwest side of Jakarta.  The death follows a confirmed H5N1 cluster in North Jakarta, as well as suspect fatal cases in Cengkareng, which is adjacent to Tangerang, as well as Bekasi, which is on the east sided of Jakarta.  

Although the three most recent cases have not been H5N1 confirmed, the second case (5F)  in the North Jakarta cluster tested negative multiple times before H5N1 confirmation at autopsy, raising concerns about the sensitivity of the H5N1 (test) for the bird flu currently circulating in Indonesia.

False negatives in Indonesia are common because patients are tested after the start of Tamiflu treatment (Snip).  Patient who recover continue to test negative and are not reported as confirmed cases, while those who die have increasing H5N1 RNA levels, which eventually test positive.  This testing procedure accounts in part for the high case fatality rate (Snip) 80% in Indonesia since the first confirmed cases were reported in 2005.

However, at least two (of) the three cases adjacent to Jakarta have tested negative, even though the patients have died with H5N1 symptoms, and have been quickly buried, per protocol for confirmed H5N1 cases. These recent fatalities and the failure to link the cases to infected poultry, has raised concerns that the H5N1 in Indonesia is being transmitted more efficiently, as seen in the confirmed cluster in North Jakarta as well as the Bali cluster.

Sequences from the Bali cluster included receptor binding domain changes (D187N, A188G, R193M), as well a clear examples of recombination.  Moreover, these changes are likely to lead to immunological escape. (Snip) http://www.recombinomics.com/N...

Hi bgw in MT
A lot of good information in this one, huh? How many times have we said this too, "False negatives in Indonesia are common because patients are tested after the start of Tamiflu treatment (Snip).  Patients who recover continue to test negative and are not reported as confirmed cases"

It has been frustrating to us for years to know there are many more cases than the Indonesian government has admitted to and watching the WHO just sit there.... deaf, dumb and blind!

I find it very concerning to frequently see more receptor binding domain changes as new sequences are released.

Fatal Suspect H5N1 Case In Cengkareng Indonesia
Recombinomics Commentary

Now, allegations of similar cases are also found in West Jakarta, where a boy aged three years initials RV, a resident of RT 15/07 Cengkarengtimur Village, District Cengkareng , died on Monday (23 / 1) around 06.00 after previous intensive care at Friendship Hospital, East Jakarta.

Regarding the victim's body is covered a coffin and not allowed to open, say Parwathi, it was according to the procedure as a form of anticipation of the hospital for suspected cases of bird flu. Despite the negative results of bird flu, disclosed Parwathi,

The above translation describes the death of a suspect H5N1 case (3M) in Cengkareng, Indonesia, which is adjacent to Tangerang, where another suspect H5N1 case (18M) also died after testing negative for H5N1.  These two cases had bird flu symptoms and were buried in a sealed coffin, which is customary for H5N1 cases.

The failure to detect H5N1 in these two fatal cases in adjacent areas on the west side of Jakarta is in addition to the suspect case in Bekasi, on the east side of Jakarta, as well as the confirmed cluster in North Jakarta (Snip)

These five cases in the Jakarta area raise concerns that H5N1 is being more efficiently transmitted as it evolves away from the sequences being used in the H5N1 PCR test.

Avian flu threatens to claim additional life
Multa Fidrus and Elly Burhaini Faizal, The Jakarta Post, Tangerang/Jakarta | Wed, 01/25/2012 8:35 AM
A | A | A | An 18-year-old man thought to be infected with avian flu was in critical condition at the Tangerang General Hospital as of Tuesday.

"The patient is still in isolation," hospital spokesman Achmad Muchlis said. "He is exhibiting the symptoms of avian flu, but the team of doctors is still waiting for confirmation from laboratory results."

The patient, a resident from Me-karsari village in Tangerang regency, suffered from a high fever for six days after which time he was taken to the private Sari Asih Hospital in Karawaci last Wednesday, when he developed respiratory problems.

As his condition worsened, the hospital transferred him to Tangerang General Hospital on Saturday.

According to the hospital's president director, Mamahit, the family informed doctors that before the patient fell sick, one of the ducks he had raised had died.

"Referring to the case history and the symptoms he was suffering from, we treated him as a bird flu patient," he told reporters.

A team from the Tangerang Health Agency conducted a survey around the patient's neighborhood.

"We haven't as yet found any infected fowl ... We also checked all [the patient's] family members and neighbors, but none of them were sick," agency head Naniek Isnaeni said. "We are still waiting for the patient's laboratory results to know what to do next."

Within the part two weeks, there have been two confirmed deaths from avian flu in Jakarta alone.

Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih said Tuesday that health care facilities in Indonesia had sufficient capacity to properly diagnose avian influenza; however, more efforts were needed to expand the country's bird flu laboratory capacity, which would allow more sensitive detection of the disease.

"We are conducting polymerase chain reaction [PCR] swab tests on mucus taken from the nose and throat to detect whether it contains the H5N1 virus. The test can produce results in quite a short period of time, but we may need a further test involving virus sequencing in order to get a more accurate result on whether a patient is positive for H5N1. However, not all labs have these facilities," she said.

Lab testing is one of the areas of expertise the government aims to develop in tackling the disease.

"We are improving 42 labs assigned as diagnostic centers for avian influenza," said Endang.

Endang said cross-sector collaboration played a key role in tackling the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus. The Health Ministry is collaborating with other institutions, including the agriculture and trade ministries, to combat outbreaks.

The ministry has also distributed anti-influenza drugs called Oseltamivir to health care facilities, including both hospitals and community health centers, free of charge. "We have sufficient stocks of Oseltamivir to last until next year," Endang said, adding that the government had reserve stocks of more than 1.4 million Oseltamivir tablets ready to distribute if needed.

Tjandra Yoga Aditama, the director general of Disease Control and Environmental Health (P2PL), said that bird flu patients undergoing Oseltamivir therapy would experience a higher chance of recovery compared with those who did not.

"Eighty-eight people, or 47 percent of 188 patients with bird flu infections, who received Oseltamivir therapy recovered from the illness, while only 7 people, or 12 percent of 56 patients, who did not receive the therapy survived," he said, referring to a research study conducted in six countries including Indonesia.

Suspected bird flu: Two deaths
Multa Fidrus and Apriadi Gunawan, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 01/26/2012 8:30 AM

After being treated for five days, a suspected bird flu victim from Tangerang died at the Tangerang General Hospital (RSUD) on Wednesday.

Hospital spokesman Achmad Muchlis said that the patient died from respiratory failure at about 12:30 a.m.

The condition of R, 18, a resident from Panongan district, Tangerang regency, deteriorated since he was treated in an isolation room. However, he tested negative for H5N1 in a polymerase chain reaction test conducted by the hospital.

The hospital needs to conduct a test involving virus sequencing to get a more accurate result on whether the man had the deadly disease.

When The Jakarta Post visited the hospital, his isolation room, located next to the morgue, was locked. Muchlis said his family would take his body home soon.

The teenager had suffered from a high fever for six days before he was taken to the private Sari Asih Hospital in Karawaci last Wednesday, when he then developed respiratory problems. As his condition worsened, the hospital transferred him to Tangerang General Hospital on Saturday. His death came after another suspected bird flu victim died on Monday.

RV, 3, from Cengkareng district in West Jakarta, died after suffering from high fever for several days. He had been treated at Hermina Hospital in Kalideres, West Jakarta, for nine days. But two days after his release from hospital, his fever returned and he was taken to the Royal Taruma Hospital in Grogol, West Jakarta, for a further nine days.

When he did not recover, doctors suggested treatment at the Persahabatan Hospital in East Jakarta. He died two days after being admitted at Persahabatan.

Jakarta Health Agency head Dien Emmawati said the patient had returned three negative test results.

"He had two tests taken before he died, and the results were negative. The third test was taken a day before he died, but as Monday was a public holiday, we could only know the result on Tuesday. It was also negative," she said.

Over two weeks, there have been two confirmed deaths from avian flu in Jakarta alone.

Meanwhile, from Medan, North Sumatra, a team from Padang Sidempuan Health Agency will conduct a thorough examination on a 1-year-old girl, PA, suspected of being infected with bird flu.

The baby's mother, Suriani, said that PA fell sick with a high fever after dozens of chickens in her neighborhood abruptly died.

She said that her daughter had a high fever for three days before a doctor said she was possibly infected with the virus.

Padang Sidempuan Health Agency head Doriah Hafni Lubis said a team had been assigned to check on PA's condition. PA had initially tested negative to the virus. "The baby has hydrocephalus, not bird flu. The symptoms of bird flu are not found in her," Hafni told the Post.

Hafni said that although there were no signs of bird flu, the agency would continue to examine the girl over the next few days.

"We will keep observing her condition, as several chickens in her neighborhood reportedly suddenly died," Hafni said.

North Sumatra Health Agency head Chandra Syafi'i said he had not received any reports of residents being infected with bird flu, adding that the administration had been on alert for any cases.

"We're ready. We have informed all related authorities, including residents, about the first response to bird flu," he said.

Indonesia: Bird Flu Deaths Raise Red Flags
January 26, 2012
http://www.irinnews.org/report...
JAKARTA, Indonesia:  Two recent deaths from bird flu in Indonesia highlight the need for continued vigilance against a possible resurgence of the deadly virus, an official and health expert warned. On 16 January, a five-year-old girl from northern Jakarta died after being tested positive for the H5N1 bird flu virus. She was a relative of a 24-year-old man who died on 7 January, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, adding that the two had contact with the same pigeons in their neighbourhood.  According to WHO, the latest fatalities brought the death toll from avian influenza in the country to 152, out of 184 confirmed cases since 2006.

The Health Ministry's director-general of disease control and environmental health, Tjandra Yoga Aditama, said there was no evidence that human-to-human transmission was involved in the latest case.

"As long as there are still birds carrying the virus, there will be cases of bird flu in humans from time to time," Aditama told IRIN.

Of 60 bird flu cases detected last year in Indonesia, 11 were fatal, Aditama said.

"We have to continue to maintain our vigilance," Aditama said. "The Indonesian government is taking the threat of bird flu seriously and is taking measures like countries in other parts of the world."

But Marius Widjajarta, chairman of the Indonesian Consumer Empowerment Foundation for Health (YPKKI), cited a lack of coordination among different government departments as hampering efforts to contain its spread.

"We can see that the Health Ministry, the Agriculture Ministry and local governments are doing their own things," Widjajarta told IRIN. "What if there was a pandemic?"

"All parties concerned must cooperate to promote changes in people's behaviour and attitude towards the threat of bird flu," he added.

Public awareness campaigns were done sporadically, he said, and official reporting of bird flu cases in poultry has been spotty.  The Health Ministry said bird flu was endemic in poultry in all but three of Indonesia's 31 provinces. The ministry has designated 100 hospitals across the archipelago nation as being well-equipped to treat bird flu patients.

ANTARAJAWABARAT.com, 25 / 1 - [b]National Vaccine Manufacturers PT Bio Farma (Persero) took delivery of a prototype vaccine bird flu or Avian Influenza (AI) results of research conducted by researchers of University of Indonesia.[/b]

"The delivery of this prototype is a form of AI vaccines initial support from the government to Bio Farma in order to realize the acceleration of vaccine research through research and development in order to support the Decade of Vaccines 2020," said Director of PT Bio Farma Iskandar on the sidelines of the signing of vaccine research synergy with Kemenkes and the Ministry of Research and Technology in the Office Kemenkes here on Wednesday.

[b]Prototype bird flu vaccine was delivered by UI researchers to the Minister of Research and Technology, then submitted to the Ministry of Health, hereinafter handed back to PT Bio Farma.[/b]

According to Iskandar, the first step is once again realize the contribution of country-related cases of bird flu epidemic back where Indonesia is one of the endemic countries.

In addition to delivery of a prototype vaccine AI also held the signing of a memorandum of cooperation in order to reduce Indonesia's dependence on foreign related party of raw materials to manufacture vaccines.

Meanwhile, the signing of the synergy that involves 16 stakeholders which is a synergy of academia, business and government (ABG). From the academic group represented UI, ITB, Padjadjaran University, the University of Gajah Mada University, the University Eleven in March, the University of Al Azhar, Hasanudin University and University Press.

PT Bio Farma and Indofarma as business groups while the government was represented by the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Research and Technology, BPPT, Balitbankes, LIPI, the Eijkman Institute and KIN.

"We hope that by signing this memorandum of cooperation, capable of accelerating the process of research and vaccine development. Where, for producing one type of vaccine only takes about 15 years starting from the beginning until the end of the process," said Iskandar.

Bio Farma is expected that through this ABG synergy produces a shortcut to accelerate vaccine research. The first step in this re-explored through ABG synergy conducted by Bio Farma to hold back the National Vaccine Research Forum (FVRN).

FVRN is an advanced program of the National Vaccine Research Symposium Independence in the past year which has resulted in eight consortium for research and development of future vaccine research, such as dengue vaccine, malaria vaccine, rotavirus vaccine, influenza vaccine, New TB vaccines, delivery systems, and policies.

FVRN is scheduled to be held in August 2012 in order HUT-122 Bio Farma to year, it was revealed by the Director on the sidelines of attending the event in Jakarta.

Progress of research and development of the first FVRN very significant progress occurred in the consortium of New TB vaccine and dengue vaccine. New TB vaccine has been developed since 2009 by using the latest technology platforms.

The consortium is composed of several people who came from various universities and research institutions both within and outside the country who have a concern and responsibility in meeting the needs of the vaccine supply.

Rohmat (18), died of swine flu, not bird flu
Thursday, 01/26/2012 16:37 pm
Jakarta - Rohmat (18), residents Ciodeng Village, Village Blooms Jaya, Panongan Subdistrict, Tangerang regency, not proven to suffer from bird flu. Based on laboratory tests Kemenkes, Rohmat exposed to swine flu (H1N1).

According to Head of Research and Development Dr. Dr. Trihono Kemenkes Health, MSc, swine flu death rate is smaller than bird flu. Therefore it suggests Rohmat also suffer from another disease that caused her death.
"Swine flu can be from human to human. In Mexico also happens that way. The H1N1 virus is spreading rapidly but a small death rate, unlike the bird flu. I think this R died of comorbidities. So do not miss a single cause of death due to swine flu, "Trihono light.

Here is an interview with AFP Trihono, Thursday (26/01/2012):

Really Rohmat Tangerang resident died of swine flu?
First came indeed from there (pig). But now that can spread from human to human, then it could be suffered by people around him there are no pigs.

So it's not because in some patients no pig farms or animals?
Not. Swine flu can be from human to human. In Mexico also occurs so. The H1N1 virus is spreading rapidly but a small death rate, unlike the bird flu. I think it died because the R-morbidities. So no single cause of death due to swine flu.

Could swine flu because of exposure and the patient received concomitant penyakir which then caused it to die?
Yes, it could happen. Because when a person has the flu, body resistance is reduced. When conditions are more susceptible to decline other diseases.As a result, the added weight.

What is characteristic of people suffering from swine flu?
Actually rather difficult to distinguish from the common cold. In the case of R, yesterday he considered the dangers of bird flu first. Suspected bird flu in order to handle more leverage. If it was not bird flu so it's nothing. But it turns out negative bird flu and swine flu experience. Can be attacked by unknown (swine flu) is from the laboratory.

As people with flu, swine flu was exposed complained of fever, body aches, fatigue, and cough. There was also a complained a runny nose, sore throat, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea as well. If the weight can cause shortness of breath, pneumonia.

So the bird flu is more dangerous than swine flu?
If the rapid spread of swine flu, a small death rate. Compared to seasonal flu, bird flu and swine flu is more dangerous.

Figures Case Fatality Rate (CFR) was 0.5 percent of swine flu. While bird flu death toll reaches 80 percent. Transmission of avian influenza from birds to also still human, and not yet proven transmission from human to human. While the swine flu can be from human to human.
Swine flu cases experienced by residents is not the first

Tangerang in Indonesia?
There used to pilot a hit. There are some who are affected and some are dying.
Related to the emergence of this case again, what will be done Kemenkes?

Swine flu is easily spread, but we expect that there will not be affected until it died. This case will continue our review, whether or not R has other comorbidities. We will continue to do the monitoring.

Tangerang man positive for swine flu: Health Ministry
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 01/27/2012 11:00 AM

The 18-year-old man in Tangerang, who was suspected of being infected with bird flu and who died on Wednesday, tested positive for swine flu, the Health Ministry said.

The ministry's head of research and development, Trihono, told The Jakarta Post on Thursday that the man, known as R, had contracted H1N1, which caused a pandemic in 2009.

Trihono said, however, that it was unlikely that the man had died of swine flu. "While swine flu was deadly in 2009 and 2010, it is no longer a harmful disease."

He added that the disease is a lot like a more common seasonal flu. "The sufferer does not even need to be isolated," he said.

The World Health Organization announced in 2010 that the H1N1 swine-flu pandemic had passed, but made clear that "this does not mean that the H1N1 virus has gone away".

Trihono suspected that the patient might have suffered from another, deadlier disease, which led to his death. "That disease killed him rather than the swine flu."

Officials from Tangerang General Hospital and the regency's health authority declined to comment on the swine-flu infection, telling the Post that only Health Ministry officials were authorized to make such comments.

The hospital's spokesman, Achmad Muchlis, had earlier said that R had died from respiratory problems. The man, a resident from Panongan district in Tangerang, died after being treated for five days.

The hospital had conducted polymerase chain reaction tests to confirm whether he had bird flu but they came back negative. It said it would conduct more tests.

"The research and development department has not yet received the patient's complete medical record. We cannot reveal his cause of death just now," Trihono said.

The ministry said it would examine the case further as there was a possibility, no matter how small, that the swine flu could transform into a more threatening virus to human beings. "The test that we are about to conduct is aimed at ensuring that the swine-flu threat is still under control," he said.

In 2009, the Health Ministry reported that at least four Indonesians died from swine flu.

The Jakarta administration is on alert in case of a possible outbreak of bird flu following the deaths
of two siblings in North Jakarta who were confirmed to have contracted the virus. (lfr)

At first, all cases should be reported to the WHO. Report the number of recent cases in the WHO website H1N1pdm09 October 2009 more than 440 000 cases.

"So, no need to report again and it does not count anymore," explained Minister of Health.

In early 2010, the case is found in almost all countries in the world. More than 214 countries and overseas teritories or communities. Director General of WHO declared pandemic post on August 10, 2010, meaning a pandemic phase had passed. Based on WHO data on the site until August 6, 2010 at least 18,449 people worldwide die from this disease.

Since expressed as a post pandemic, the disease caused by H1N1pdm09 is a variant of influenza, as well as the usual result of the H1N1 virus / old, H3N2, influenza B, and others.

"So basically H1N1pdm 09 is one form of influenza. Influenza is generally mild and can be cured by itself, except in those with low immunity or any other health problems ", said Minister of Health.

For prevention, Minister of Health ordered that the public understand how to prevent flu. "Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing / coughing; no direct contact when they have flu-like shaking hands or hugging; adequate rest at home, wash hands with soap (HWWS); eat nutritious foods; get used to living a clean healthy behaviors (PHBs); immediately kesehtaan consult with health care issues in the nearest health facility," said Menkes.

Bird Flu Increasingly Alarmed [Bogor]
Sunday, January 29 2012 | 06:36

The fast handling and the continous program must be carried out to prevent the spreading of the virus widely.

Since Thursday (19/1) cases of the chicken died suddenly happened in Kayu Manis Village of RT 03/RW 01, Cibadak, Tanah Sareal, the Bogor City, West Java.

Till Friday (27/1) amount continued to increase reached 27 chickens, and on Saturday (28/1) increased still became 32 tails.

Saw this so worrying case, the Agriculture Service Kota Bogor at once carried out the inspection rapid test (the fast test).

Rapid test was personally carried out by using the gauge implement like the implement pregnancy check. The sample that was taken took the form of feces and the liquid on the chicken throat, then was measured.

Results of the inspection showed, that one chicken belonging to the resident who died suddenly, positive was affected by bird flu (H5N1).

And very possibly dozens of other chickens then died suddenly as a result of the same virus, although the Agriculture Service Kota Bogor did not yet confirm the death of dozens of chickens was positive bird flu.

The head of the Livestock Field Agriculture Service, Kota Bogor, Robert Hasibuan said, although the level of the fast test accuracy 80 percent, the laboratory test continued to have to be carried out to know definitely the cause of his death.

With the existence of this case the resident and the wider community certainly was worried it was made, moreover the virus H5N1 was known as the deadly virus that could spread quickly.

Their concern increasingly strengthened because in the area had two residents that suffered was sick flu.

Although Dwi Susanto, the team of the Surveillance Oficial District (DSO) from the Health Service of the Bogor City, said, that the two patients did not show flattest signs of bird flu, still did not make the resident become calm.

At first beforehand has had two residents from Tanjung Priok, Jakarta Utara, died resulting from this virus.

Not yet again there is a sufferer suspect bird flu was treated in RSUD Dr Murjani, Sampit, Central Kalimantan, that was known could contact with his poultry that died suddenly.

Must be continous
The fast handling and various anticipation efforts must be indeed carried out, in view of the fact that bird flu had the sign that was the same as common flu, apart from this illness also was difficult to be detected.

To prevent the spreading of the bird flu virus increasingly spread, the Agriculture Service Kota Bogor, indeed carried out spraying of disinfectant all through the chicken coop belonging to the resident was followed by giving of the vaccination.

Dinkes Kota Bogor has then carried out the socialisation about the prevention of bird flu to the resident with various efforts like, the spreading of the pamphlet and the brochure around the handling and the prevention of bird flu.

Not only that, the community was also appealed to to destroy chickens that were sick by means of burning and avoiding contact with the poultry.

"When the death of the resident's poultry happening was appealed to to burn this chicken and to supplement himself with the protection," explained Robert.

Did not lose important was always to maintain the health and the cleanliness himself as well as the environment around.

However his problem did not only stop arrive there. Indonesia as the country with the case of highest bird flu in the world, could not again just carried out the fast handling, but precisely that did not lose important was to carry out various prevention efforts, counselling (the socialisation) and the edication continuously.

That becomes the question now was, already arrived how far various programs or these efforts were carried out so that to the front Indonesia could continue to suppress the number of cases of bird flu, and the sufferer's death rate resulting from the deadly virus.

The chicken breeder in the Pondok Rumput Hamlet, Kebonpedes Village, Tanah Sareal Subdistrict, Umar said his turnover experienced the decline from normal.

"After bird flu was found in the Bogor City, the request of the piece chicken indeed decreased. Because of many traders in the market that chose to buy the piece chicken from outside Bogor," he said, on Sunday (29/1/2012).

Bird Flu Fears in Indonesia over pet market
Bird Flu Fears in Indonesia: Flap Over Jakarta Pet Market Move

Wahyudi Soeriaatmadja - Straits Times Indonesia | January 30, 2012

Despite lingering fears about the spread of bird flu in the country with the world's highest number of fatalities from the deadly avian influenza virus, Indonesia's largest pet market has survived several attempts to relocate it.

Located in East Jakarta, Pasar Pramuka is one of the 23 pet markets in Jakarta that sell birds. It boasts no fewer than 152 stores selling anything from various pigeon breeds and ducks to ornamental chickens.

The market, which is popular with many Jakarta shoppers, sits just 5m from the densely populated Pal Meriam residential area - a clear challenge to municipal laws that ban poultry from being reared within 25m of residential areas.

While the laws specifically refer to farmed poultry and slaughterhouses, it is clear that pet birds would pose similar risks of spreading bird flu to humans.

But the people living near Pasar Pramuka are not worried.

"The pet market has been around for 30 years. We haven't had anyone here catching bird flu," Evaldi, 46, who lives about 20m from the market, said as his six-year-old son Razaq Gumanti, played with his pet bird.

His neighbor Damiri, too, told The Straits Times: "They have been keeping Pasar Pramuka market very clean, probably the cleanest market in the country. As long as they keep up with that hygiene work, we should not be worried."

It is the kind of response that frustrates Ipih Ruyani, Jakarta's top bureaucrat overseeing the culling of sick poultry and checking on whether poultry handlers keep to the rules. "Their typical argument is: We have been living with live poultry for years. If there were bird flu, we would have caught it a long time ago," she said, sighing.

Jakarta's municipal government has been trying to move Pasar Pramuka for the past four years but has been facing delays from a combination of protests from stallholders and the public, as well as slow bureaucracy.

The first attempt was made in 2007, the year 37 people died from bird flu in Indonesia. The country accounts for almost half of human bird flu fatalities, and saw 45 people die in 2006.

The relocation plan was raised again in 2009, with the authorities eyeing Cibubur district, just outside East Jakarta, as the strongest option. Again, however, it failed to materialise: The municipal government never finished the studies required before choosing the exact spot of land to be used in the area.

But there is now a new urgency to make another attempt to relocate Pasar Pramuka: This month, a five-year-old girl became the country's second bird flu fatality. With January hardly over, there are fears that this year's fatalities could equal or even surpass last year's 10.

In recent weeks, the government has been stepping up its checks, clamping down on uncaged poultry in the streets and pet birds that have not been certified as free of the flu virus. Plans are also being made to relocate another major pet market in the capital's Barito area.

The challenge is made harder by ad-hoc roadside stalls set up by traders to showcase pet animals ranging from chicken and fish to monkeys in the Janitegara area, and a common habit of rearing poultry for food in homes - despite a ban on such practices.

Still, the municipal authorities are determined to make yet another attempt to move Pasar Pramuka. This month, the officials put the relocation of the pet market at the top of their agenda.

But Ipih acknowledged that moving a market that has been there for more than 30 years is no easy task.

The officials will have to keep warning both residents and stallholders about how life-threatening the bird flu virus is, and the urgent need for prevention.

At the same time, they will need to convince stallholders of the need to move, to avoid triggering strong resistance that could lead to more protests.

"It takes a delicate and long process, but we are going to relocate Pasar Pramuka as soon as possible," a determined Ipih said. "We have earmarked a 2ha piece of land in Cibubur."

She said that the majority of the traders at Pasar Pramuka and nearby residents now support the relocation - apart from what she called the "stubborn citizen category."

That would be people such as Abu Busono, 45, who sells Sulawesi ornamental chickens as well as a wide range of pet birds at the market and is strongly opposed to any relocation.

"We don't need to move. There is no such thing as bird flu, no such thing as poultry to human transmission. Poultry's disease stays with the poultry, and so does human disease," he said.

Still, Ipih is confident that Indonesia will not see any possibility of a repeat of 2006, when it saw its worst bird flu fatalities. Thanks to increased public awareness about the disease, she said, bird flu cases have dropped.

In 2006, the authorities had to cull 300,000 poultry around Jakarta's streets. By 2008, this had fallen to 36,000, and last year, just 13,000.

She said: "If you go to any neighborhood streets today, you see far fewer chickens around. We can find loose chickens nowadays only in the really, really poor areas of the capital, like those who live close to the river banks."

Negative Avian Influenza, Walgianto Discharged [WO, Central Kalimantan]

Sampit - Team physician general hospitals (Hospital) Dr. Murjani Sampit expressed, on behalf of WG patients alias Walgianto (42), a resident of Middle Village Seruyan Sukamandang District who had undergone intensive treatment in hospital, not the bird flu. Negative verdict confirmed after team doctors receive test results of swab of Research and Development Jakarta, Tuesday (31 / 1) morning. Although the patient was treated for suspected bird flu, but team doctors reasoned that treatment must be in accordance with the criteria of the Ministry of Health. "The results of the Jakarta laboratory we have got, and negative. The patient is only experiencing the common cold," said Dr. Murjani Sampit Hospital Director Dr. Ratna Yuniarti MKes accompanied by team physician, told reporters yesterday. Walgianto a bird flu patient in the investigation. After entering the isolation room in hospitals dr Murjani Sampit since Wednesday (25 / 1) night, a new Sunday (29 / 1) was transferred to the regular room. After four days of treatment, the hospital sent a sample swab into Libangkes Jakarta.

Clinically and detailed, Team Leader of bird flu dr Mulyadi explained, since it was first treated until now Walgianto good condition. It's just that doctors need to wait for the results of swabs, and yesterday have been declared negative or not the bird flu. "Yes the common cold, we ensure that waiting for results from Jakarta," said Dr. Heru Dento accompanied Mulyadi, Dr. Denny, Dr. Gery, and Dr. Benjamin Kumila. He worried about bird flu case sensitive for the community. So the patient was isolated from the village Sukamandang, and given medication to wait for confirmation from Jakarta. But, he added, according to the criteria of MOH, if patients exposed to bird flu, but has been free of fever seven days supported the laboratory results are good then the patient remains repatriated. Added Dr. Ratna Yuniarti, patients treated in isolation because there is a history of contact with dead chickens. From the results of the field there is a tendency on the positive chickens. But the results of laboratory and clinical conclusions on the human, not bird flu. So from the clinical side of the hospital conclusion so.

However, from the demologi awaiting swab results, which was presented to team physician Dr. Murjani Sampit Hospital, yesterday. Moreover, added Ratna, the outbreak of bird flu in chickens has already happened in East Kotawaringin, but the outbreak did not occur in humans. Therefore, the results of examination of the chickens died suddenly, the doctor will still see the clinical features of patients. If patients were improved there is no reason to hold hospitals, let alone the laboratory results were negative. With the results of the laboratory, Dr. Murjani Sampit Hospital does not have to wait for the results of the chicken again. Therefore, the handling of chickens do the relevant agencies, while the treatment in humans has been done according to the rules of the Public Health Service. "Starting today (yesterday) the patient is allowed to visit. We tell the patient was allowed to go home today it is up to what time to go home," said Dr. Ratna. Doctors Mulyadi re-add, every suspected case of bird flu it follow WHO and MOH standards.

Including the patient should be isolated. Treatment is like the common cold, until the outcome of the MOH out. Although the patients lived in areas where there is a positive chicken bird flu, meaning that infected chickens in the neighborhood are not people, who feared the people especially in humans. While Dr. Heru said, swab sampling has been done three times, but it is also a blood sample taken for examination, and the results were all negative. Hospital director Dr Murjani Sampit Dr. Ratna Yuniarti reiterate, an outbreak of bird flu so contact propensity for consideration. A person who is in frequent contact with chickens suddenly died, and she had the flu can be suspected. In the case of Walgianto, poultry have died a few days before flu patients, so there is no continuity between the chickens died with flu patients. However, communities around the village should be given a logical explanation, so they are relieved but wary.

"We should ask if you raise chickens and chickens dead," he replied no. At that time we expect the possibility of bird flu was not, but we treated him as a patient suspect bird flu, "said Dr. Mulyadi. Furthermore, the bird flu handling team leader pointed out, a distance of dead birds with the patient's home about 300 yards. Only a doctor should be analyzed, because of the horrendous cases of bird flu. So be handled according to criteria of department of health. "The second day he (the patient) to go home. He wondered what to do, because it locked up," said Mulyadi. On the same occasion, Dr. Ratna Yuniarti said, as the bird flu referral hospitals, when receiving patients suspected of bird flu regional trend, then it must go into Ministry of Health criteria. Since Hospital early dr Murjani Sampit not hasty, so out there in that area a lot of dead chickens. "We do not lack information, the doctor there at the conclusion, must be proved first because there are dead chickens still we must be cautious, doctors found patients with flu-hot," he said as he explained a lot in the Village Sukamandang, flu patients but not hot, so do not need to worry about.

While Mayor HM Palangkaraya Riban Satia remind poultry farmers in this city to be aware of livestock. Since there are already some areas of the bird flu virus. It is recommended to all residents and poultry traders to provide reports to relevant agencies if any poultry that died suddenly. To be immediately carried out tests on poultry, and to the officers in the field to continue to monitor the distribution and supervision of poultry from outside Palangkaraya. According Riban, officers in the field can continue to monitor developments and should not be complacent, given the current extreme weather conditions. So that the bird flu virus can enter at any time.

"We're concerned, if the officer off guard bird flu will infect one Palangkaraya citizens, so that there is need for intensive supervision of the superintendent of poultry, particularly from outside Palangkaraya. But we also received a report from the City Health Office, virus (bird flu, ed) is not as alarming but remain vigilant, "he said. The mayor asked the citizens of Palangkaraya to always maintain the cleanliness of poultry cages and always check his health. If found any dead poultry should immediately report, in order to identify the bird flu virus or not, so it can be directly carried out further tests.

Therefore, the handling of chickens do the relevant agencies, while the treatment in humans has been done according to the rules of the Public Health Service. "Starting today (yesterday) the patient is allowed to visit. We tell the patient was allowed to go home today it is up to what time to go home," said Dr. Ratna. Doctors Mulyadi re-add, every suspected case of bird flu it follow WHO and MOH standards.

Including the patient should be isolated. Treatment is like the common cold, until the outcome of the MOH out. Although the patients lived in areas where there is a positive chicken bird flu, meaning that infected chickens in the neighborhood are not people, who feared the people especially in humans. While Dr. Heru said, swab sampling has been done three times, but it is also a blood sample taken for examination, and the results were all negative. Hospital director Dr Murjani Sampit Dr. Ratna Yuniarti reiterate, an outbreak of bird flu so contact propensity for consideration. A person who is in frequent contact with chickens suddenly died, and she had the flu can be suspected. In the case of Walgianto, poultry have died a few days before flu patients, so there is no continuity between the chickens died with flu patients. However, communities around the village should be given a logical explanation, so they are relieved but wary.

"We should ask if you raise chickens and chickens dead," he replied no. At that time we expect the possibility of bird flu was not, but we treated him as a patient suspect bird flu, "said Dr. Mulyadi. Furthermore, the bird flu handling team leader pointed out, a distance of dead birds with the patient's home about 300 yards. Only a doctor should be analyzed, because of the horrendous cases of bird flu. So be handled according to criteria of department of health. "The second day he (the patient) to go home. He wondered what to do, because it locked up," said Mulyadi. On the same occasion, Dr. Ratna Yuniarti said, as the bird flu referral hospitals, when receiving patients suspected of bird flu regional trend, then it must go into Ministry of Health criteria. Since Hospital early dr Murjani Sampit not hasty, so out there in that area a lot of dead chickens. "We do not lack information, the doctor there at the conclusion, must be proved first because there are dead chickens still we must be cautious, doctors found patients with flu-hot," he said as he explained a lot in the Village Sukamandang, flu patients but not hot, so do not need to worry about.

While Mayor HM Palangkaraya Riban Satia remind poultry farmers in this city to be aware of livestock. Since there are already some areas of the bird flu virus. It is recommended to all residents and poultry traders to provide reports to relevant agencies if any poultry that died suddenly. To be immediately carried out tests on poultry, and to the officers in the field to continue to monitor the distribution and supervision of poultry from outside Palangkaraya. According Riban, officers in the field can continue to monitor developments and should not be complacent, given the current extreme weather conditions. So that the bird flu virus can enter at any time.

"We're concerned, if the officer off guard bird flu will infect one Palangkaraya citizens, so that there is need for intensive supervision of the superintendent of poultry, particularly from outside Palangkaraya. But we also received a report from the City Health Office, virus (bird flu, ed) is not as alarming but remain vigilant, "he said. The mayor asked the citizens of Palangkaraya to always maintain the cleanliness of poultry cages and always check his health. If found any dead poultry should immediately report, in order to identify the bird flu virus or not, so it can be directly carried out further tests.

Chicken Breeders In Madiun Complaining Extreme Weather [East Java]
Feb 06, 2012 18:29:06 | Author: Louis Rica

Madiun - A number of chicken farmers in Madiun Regency complained of extreme weather events that occurred during the last few weeks to make them a lot of chicken livestock that died.

This is as experienced by Brinda, layer chicken farm owner in the Banjarsari Village, Madiun Subdistrict, Madiun Regency. Dozens of chickens died suddenly livestock due to weather extremes are likely a lot of rain.

"Every day there are three to five chickens that died suddenly at home. This is happening since last month due to high rainfall in Madiun and surrounding areas," said local rancher laying hens, Brinda, Monday.

According to him, he has been spraying disinfectants and routine vaccine injections, but still there are a number of chickens that died suddenly. Allegedly, the chickens are not laying a strong cold air due to extreme weather that hit.

The number of chickens that died suddenly also have an impact on the productivity of eggs per day. In addition, cold weather also affects the condition of the surviving chickens to lay eggs.

"Chickens do not want to lay their eggs so that the cold weather and not much sun. Situation is making us lose money because of decreased egg production every day," he said.

He explained that the decrease in egg production is expected to reach up to 50 percent of normal conditions. Normally, from 1,500 chickens egglaying could produce 50 kilograms to 60 kilograms of eggs every day. But this time, egg production dropped to 30 kilograms to 40 kilograms per day.

The same is expressed by the broiler breeder Candimulyo Village, Dolopo Subdistrict, Madiun Regency. One of broiler breeders in the local village, Wasis, admitted, to date there have been hundreds of chickens died suddenly because of Newcastle disease.

"Extreme weather that hit Madiun Regency during the rainy season resulting in thousands of chickens attacked by the disease due to influenza and cold stress. This is compounded by seemingly Newcastle disease symptoms similar to bird flu chickens died suddenly," said Wasis.

In addition to making chicken stress and disease, weather extremes also create an abnormal growth of chickens. The farmers had to harvest early chickens to reduce losses.

"Ideally, the broiler is harvested at age 37 to 40 days. For fear of death, forced to be harvested at 29-30 days of age. In addition, the weight of chicken that ideally about 2.5 pounds per tail at harvest, which was now weighs about 1.8 kilograms per tail, has been harvested, "said Wasis.

Head of Animal Health, Department of Animal Husbandry and Fisheries District Madiun Santoso, confirm, the extreme weather occurred during the last month has had an impact on the livestock industry. The lack of sunlight makes the chicken coop with stress and become damp, so more susceptible to disease.

"Although there is a case of chickens died suddenly, but it's not because of bird flu, Newcastle disease only. In order to prevent the spread of bird flu virus and other diseases in poultry, we continue to outreach to farmers and households who have chickens to diligently maintain the cleanliness of the cage poultry and spraying disinfectant on a regular basis. Office also provides free stock of vaccines and disinfectants, "Santoso said.
