Indonesia Health Minister statement about pig flu.

Health Minister, Siti Fadilah Supari announced public not to be afraid but keep aware to any possibility of pig flu emerging in Indonesia.

Fatality rate of bird flu (H5N1) appears to be higher – about 80-90 percent – compare to pig flu (H1N1) which about 6.4 percent. However, public asked to be aware since this virus has been confirmed to be transmissible among human.

H1N1 virus is only survivable in sub tropic area - in particular during autumn and winter - such as North America. Indonesia is a tropical country so that the possibility for the virus to survive is relatively low, said Health Minister in press conference, Ministry of Public Welfare Coordination (Menkokesra) office, Jakarta, Monday (27/4).

Pig/Swine flu or H1N1 cannot survive in warm temperate area such as Indonesia. But citizen are required to maintain self hygiene.

For preparedness of any possibility of this virus to emerge in Indonesia, Ministry of Health has ordered related parties to terminate import of pork. Moreover, government will do surveillance to numbers of pig farms in Indonesia, in total 9 millions pig population.

Meanwhile, airports in Indonesia have been equipped with Thermo Scanner or body temperature detector for new entrants.

Ministry of health also supplies Health Alert Card to airways companies and sea harbor, about the health/flu status, which required to be filled by new entrants.

Furthermore, Ministry of Health has prepared Tamiflu stock for H1N1 treatment.

In the same event, Director of Animal Derived Disease Control (PPBB) Ministry of Health, Rita Kusriastuti said, Thermo Scanner has been set up in 10 airports, i.e. Ngurah Rai Bali, Makassar, Surabaya, South Kalimantan, Jakarta, Batam and Medan.

Three millions Tamiflu for therapeutics have been prepared, and 100 reference hospitals will also be re-trained to anticipate the occurrence of the disease. Doctors in numbers of hospitals are also ordered to be more considerate in examining patients, said Rita.

Indonesia ::: Eight strategies against pig flu.

April 29, 2009

Indonesia applies eight strategies against pig flu.

Pig (swine) flu has killed hundreds people in Mexico. For this disease prevention, Indonesia applies 8 strategies.

"Citizens should apply clean and healthy lifestyle. Cover nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing; wash hands after doing activities; and have medical check when having flu symptoms which don’t recover in three days", said Health Ministry, Siti Fadilah Supari in Ministry of Health Office, Jakarta, Tuesday (28/4).

Pig flu, as she added, presumably will not be introduced to Indonesia because of its survival rate only in cold climate region. However, Indonesia already had eight strategies to prevent bird flu. There also will be no pig depopulation such as in the case of bird flu.

"We will check first whether the pig has H1N1 or not. We won’t ask farmers to cull their stock before that", said Siti.

First strategy is to operate thermo scanner in 10 international airports. This will be applied to entrants which just come from abroad, especially Singapore, North America, Mexico and New Zealands.

Second, is to inform citizens who are going to travel abroad about procedure guidance for preventing pig flu infection.

Third, is to monitor influenza diseases in 100 spots and 15 hospitals in Indonesia.

Four, is to revitalize 100 bird flu reference hospitals and re-training of health workers.

Fifth, is to redirect all laboratory which are previously designed for bird flu to H1N1 (pig flu) research.

Sixth, is to do influenza endemic simulation extensively. So far, simulations have been done in Bali and Makassar.

Seventh, is to provide Tamiflu as major drug for H1N1 treatment. Previously, Tamiflu was designed for bird flu therapy.

Eight, is to spread the information about how to recognize and avoid pig flu to public.

Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital in Makassar, South Sulawesi, has over the past week been treating three patients from Nipa-nipa, Manggala district, suffering from an illness with bird flu-like symptoms.

Hospital medical director Abdul Kadir confirmed Wednesday the patients had high fevers of up to 39 degrees Celsius when they were admitted to the hospital. They were also coughing and feared to be infected by the H5N1 virus.

"Before they fell ill, several chickens in their neighborhoods suddenly died from suspected bird flu. That's why these people were admitted to hospital to get special treatment according to standard bird flu procedures," Kadir said.

He added blood samples from two of the patients, who are children, had been sent to the research and development lab at the Health Ministry in Jakarta for analysis.

As of Wednesday, the conditions of the three patients, who are being treated at the isolation ward, had improved, with their temperatures stabilizing, but hospital authorities will keep them in isolation pending the test results.

"Their conditions have improved, but we have not yet allowed them to go home and they still have to be isolated," Kadir said.

Swine flu at phase five, pandemic imminent

http://www.thejakartapost.com/...

Two days after the Health Ministry downplayed the potential of a swine flu (H1N1) pandemic, the People's Welfare Coordinating Ministry said there is imminent danger of a pandemic.

"We received an announcement from the World Health Organization (WHO) at 2:30 a.m. that the pandemic alert level had reached phase five. The signals for a pandemic are strong and imminent," Bayu Krisna Murthi, chairman of the National Avian Influenza Committee (Komnas FBPI), said Thursday.

WHO Director General Dr. Margaret Chan raised the current level of influenza pandemic alert early Thursday from phase four to phase five based on the assessment of all available information and following several consultations with experts.

Bayu said the Foreign Ministry has already issued a travel warning to Mexico, the apparent origin of the outbreak, and a travel advisory to eight other countries having confirmed human cases, namely the USA, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Israel, Spain, Austria and Germany.  

Phase five means a pandemic is imminent and that the virus is spreading, causing sustained community outbreaks in at least two countries. Phase six, the final phase, is defined by sustained outbreaks in at least two WHO regions.

Bayu said if the outbreak escalates to phase six, Indonesia might impose a travel ban to Mexico or other infected countries. Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, and Cuba have already banned travel to Mexico.

Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari called on the public not to worry too much because Indonesia has experienced an outbreak of the far deadlier avian flu (H5N1).

She said the fatality rate of the swine flu was "only" 6 percent, far less than avian flu's 80 percent.

"We must remain cautious," she said in Yogyakarta on Thursday.

Siti said the government does not need to issue a travel warning to Mexico because "a complete explanation about the swine flu and how to protect oneself from the virus is enough."  

The government has allocated Rp 38 billion (US$ 3.62 million) to help curb the spread of swine flu.

Bayu said his office has increased surveillance and border control at airports, seaports and land borders.

Amin Soebandrio, of the Research and Technology Ministry, said his office has stockpiled three million doses of the oseltamivir antiviral drug, enough for 300,000 people.

He said oseltamivir was not the proper swine flu medicine, as it was meant for avian flu, but it would have to do for now.

"There is still no vaccine for the swine flu. Normally, it takes six to eight weeks to develop a vaccine."

Bayu said safety measures have been implemented to prevent the virus from infecting the population, but that they could not succeed without public participation.

"Please report to us if somebody in your neighborhood is showing flu symptoms."

Reuters reports that Mexican President Felipe Calderon told his people to stay home starting Friday for a five-day partial shutdown of the economy, after a WHO warning.

Calderon ordered government offices and private businesses not crucial to the economy to stop work to avoid further infections from the new virus, which has killed up to 176 people in Mexico and is now spreading around the world.

The US stood steadfastly against closing the US-Mexico border, with Vice President Joe Biden calling it "a monumental undertaking" of questionable benefit to stopping the spread of swine flu, the AP reported. (fmb)

"Their conditions have improved, but we have not yet allowed them to go home and they still have to be isolated," Kadir said.

Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital has treated five suspected bird flu patients between January and April this year, two of whom, from Bone regency, South Sulawesi, were found not to have been infected.

Between 2005 and April this year, hospitals in the province have treated a total of 130 patients suspected of being infected with bird flu. Only one of them, who tested positive for the virus, later died.

Hospital director Andi Nursyanti Sapada said medicine supplies and equipment, including protective gear for medical workers, were still sufficient for the moment. She added beds were limited because the hospital only has 10 beds available in the special ward. She also said the construction of a building to accommodate patients suffering from infectious disease, including bird flu, was in its finishing stages.

On Tuesday, the Jember regency administration in East Java announced the bird flu virus had spread to 17 of its 31 districts.

Globalization and the imbalance Antarnegara Virus

Like Arjawa by GPB

AFTER SARS virus and bird flu, flu and Singapore, swine flu has again become a threat to mankind throughout the world. Not until a week ago the news about the pig flu appear in the mass media, it now has almost seize some portion of the news media internationally. Not only in developed countries, also in developing countries is growing. In Indonesia, the news is political news menggusur 'pea' (which if chewed feel good) about how the politicians telanjangnya desire to show power.

Initially, this infectious disease in a village in Mexico, and then spread in the country and an 150-snatch victim lives. And geographically spread to the United States, Canada, and New Zealand, Middle East and Europe. In East Asia, South Korea already infected. Only in a matter of days the virus has spread thousands of kilometers and make countries such as adidaya not powerless.

This is the characteristic and unique character of globalization. Globalization is a phenomenon where the acceleration and the mass flow of events, move quickly penetrate boundaries. Globalization of the border states to be relative. What happens in one country, can immediately disimak in many countries. Immediate impact and also to effect all over the world. Force main does not progress in technology and other (then) economic motivation-motivation. Speed, distance and capacity greatness roaming the aircraft is one example of the progress of technology.

Now, with one plane, as many as 700-800 people may have once transport from Europe to Australia in just six hours. Clearly, this is motivated by economic reasons, either for profit or for business. At the same time, flows of goods perindahan goods production, ranging from production of raw materials (such as meat) to material that is so (as cloth), are also able to rotate more quickly.

And information services sector is far left movement of goods and people is. Terbarukan of internet technology, such as social networks of friendship (face book, and the like), means of international telephone or SMS, have to move information in seconds.

Globalization will have a positive effect for those who have large capital. With the ability to capital, they will be able to 'enjoy', is dissolved in at a time of globalization and deal with the negative impact of globalization. Therefore, it is correct to say that if people only developed countries that are able to enjoy and overcome problems caused globalization.

Because the intellectual, technological, industrial production and the domination by developed countries, then this is the group of countries that benefit most by the globalization. Countries with less developed areas only kebagian marketing (in economics) and consumer in the field of technology and production. Or even the place of production as a result of not tertampungnya social cost of production in developed countries. That is, for example, industry asembling or foreign furniture industry is now in many developing countries. Waste, as such, there are many in developing countries.

Similarly with the management and organizational kemampuyan, are predominantly developed countries, developing countries that make can not maximize its potential. As a parable, entourage Japanese tourists visiting Indonesia akan using planes owned by Japanese shipping companies, guide them in Indonesia, also Japanese. Up to in Indonesia, the bureau

journey dikoordinatori Japanese company, the production of Japanese cars, eat at a Japanese restaurant, shopping goods shops in the complex of traditional Japan and stayed in a hotel owned by Japanese people. Conditions like this are clearly detrimental Indonesia. But we can not move slightly as managerial skills, occupied by Japan.

Globalization zymotic

Unlike the case with what is mentioned above, globalization does not make diseases the ability of the economy. Globalization virus infecting up to the developed countries. Bird flu, for example, not only merebak in Asia, but also to the European countries and the United States. Similarly pigs this flu. Negative effects of globalization are clearly there. Terrorist crimes, information on the making of illicit goods, drug addict smuggling, human smuggling, fraud and so forth, to be joined follow-up fast-moving area also. Various diseases including seeds. Among the diseases, the virus is the most quickly as he can stick on all the goods and the mass carried. In the case of social network and international police cooperation has been successful start to show its effectiveness because it has been able to reveal the network of crime and catch criminals in the area of cross-border.

Globalization is a virus disease is, at first seems to make this world the same. This means there is no difference between developed countries and developing countries. All countries potentially affected regardless of their economic strength and keadidayaannya. However, in the future the possibility of imbalance will remain. Discipline, the great capital, intellectual and knowledgeable network, akan still won the state forward in the handling-handling infectious diseases such as this. In a world of increasingly crowded with people, probably not developed countries akan {will; shall; on account of; concerning; regarding; about; as; as to; for} stingy to give knowledge to developing countries to develop knowledge in the areas of disease such as this. Who knows? Therefore, developing countries, Indonesia is certainly included in it, concentrate to anticipate the outbreak such as this. Make a special research, laboratories, departments in the faculties and so become an important concern.

Do not just look smart political coalition that until now no complete coalition.

 

* In the case of social network and international police cooperation has been successful start to show its effectiveness.

* Discipline, the big capital, intellectual and knowledgeable network, will still won the state forward in the handling-handling infectious diseases.

* Developing countries, Indonesia is certainly included in it, concentrate to anticipate the outbreak such as this.

Bali ::: 30,000 people killed during 1918 pandemic flu

May 5, 2009

Bali - In 1918, when Spanish flu virus killed millions of world populations; 30,000 of them were people in Bali. This is stated by the Head of Biomedical Laboratory Udayana University, Gusti Ngurah Mahardika. Mahardika also mentioned that currently H1N1 swine influenza or pig flu virus is existing in Bali, but has different genetic characteristic to recent circulating A Mexico H1N1 virus.

Virus which killed 30,000 people in Bali on 1918 was also identified as H1N1 virus. "According to available data, in 1918, areas most affected were Denpasar, Badung, and Gianyar. Those areas were the center of Bali at that moment", added Mahardika.

Bird Flu pandemic will Destroy Economy

If the inter-human transmission occurs, future economic paralysis.

Monday, May 4 2009, 15:46 WIB

VIVAnews - swine flu pandemic (influenza A) if it will become a reality very bad impact on economic matters. For the level of human to human then all the economic activities driven by humans will stop.

InterCafe Faith Sugema economists say, this possibility can only occur when the WHO announced the outbreak this entry level to level 6. This means the spread of the virus is spread from human to human across the state automatically so all economic activities must cautioned.

"If only it includes the assumption of Mexico does not spread to other countries may be small, because if people have to or between humans means anyone can be contagious," he said to VIVAnews, Monday 4 May 2009.

Moreover, the movement of modern humans at this time is very fast, the disease can spread anywhere. "Working people can now that the morning in Jakarta, have lunch in Thailand, and the country night sleep again," he said. Therefore, the pandemic would be a concern to the serious business transactions.

"I mention that already pandemic, the impact to the economy or humanity that can not (be) imagined. It's hard," he said.

Pandemic with a description, then the citizens will be afraid of any outside the home, such as shopping and business. Therefore, if the pandemic occurs before the drug is found, economic, practical (activities) will stop.

"Well, if all state residents to think like that, then it will create panic anybody," he said. "I have mengibaratkan fall, not ketimpa building stairs. This means the impact of this virus to the economy can be even more awesome than the global financial crisis," he said. However, according to the faith, if not swine flu pandemic, the economic impact to the minimum.

Menkes: No Additional Budget Request Influenza A

suarasurabaya.net | SITI Health Minister Fadilah Supari said the budget does not propose to anticipate the possibility of transmission of disease influenza A (H1N1) or a new, previously called the swine flu. The budget for bird flu this year can still be used for the control of influenza A / H1N1.

Facilities and infrastructure that is prepared for the control of Avian Influenza virus H5N1 (bird flu), said Minister of Health, can be used to anticipate the possible spread of influenza virus type A H1N1 that subtipe in the last few months merebak in a number of countries, including Mexico, the United States and Canada is.

Stock of antiviral drugs for bird flu disease, also can be used to control the flu because the virus of swine influenza A H1N1 also subtipe sensitive to oseltamivir - the antiviral drug is used to handle bird flu patients -.

"Stock tamiflu (trade name oseltamivir-red) have, but not sold freely. Stoknya For areas that have expired can be immediately reported to the center to get a replacement," said Minister of Health in Jakarta, Monday (04/05).

The Government, he continue, have also been making various efforts to prevent possible spread of influenza A virus subtipe H1N1. Effort that, among others, is done by making observations of the arrival terminal at the airport / port with the international instruments to install scanner body temperature (thermal scanner) and provides a health care card (health card allert) for a passenger coming from infected countries.

Department of Health also improve tracking (surveillance) similar influenza illness (influenza-like Illness / ili) and pneumonia in 83 sentinel (surveillance base), set up hospitals and laboratory examination specimens.

Minister of Health also issued a decree related to vigilance and preparedness to anticipate this. He called for people to respond this problem but still reasonably vigilant and maintain itself by applying the pattern of living clean and healthy. (ant / tin

Everytime Supari opens her mouth she reveals her ignorance (or worse). She thinks there can't be a mild pandemic. She has only sat through umpteen conferences and meetings on the subject. Maybe she just slept through them.

 

Menkes Pertanyakan WHO Policy Questions Flu Pigs

Monday, May 04, 2009 17:11 WIB - Author: Cornelius Eko Susanto

JAKARTA - MI: Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari rate policies of some of the world health (WHO) related to the handling of swine flu, inept. For example, a matter of continually changing the name of this disease and the provision of phase five of the six levels of alert on the flu pandemic of swine.

This is expressed by Menkes in Jakarta on Monday (4 / 5). Pemberiabn phase problem, WHO is making a decision only based on the study of epidemiology evidence (based on the distribution of the disease) include the study without evidence virologis (genetic mutation of the virus), which still has not been examined and published.

According to Siti Fadilah pandemic phase determination based on the study of epidemiology just does not meet rule.. "Indeed, (swine flu) has spread. But if people only fever, cough, runny nose (the mortality rate is still low) is clearly not a pandemic. If it is said like this pandemic, the WHO should make a new definition, for example mild pandemic pandemic," Siti Fadilah prank.

With not diumumkannya study virologis virus by the WHO, Menkes rate is a step of the WHO transparanan the world. "WHO should immediately announce the results sequensing (decomposition type virus), â €? Augment him.

Menkes holds, swine flu is not yet feasible identified five phases. Section, despite morbiditas level (level of attack of the disease) tolerable level, but the level of mortality (death) is still very low, only 2% of the total died of exposure. When disandingkan with bird flu, the flu death rate is not commensurate pigs.

Inasmuch that, Menkes Siti Fadilah each state to recommend new regulations to take advantage of GIS AID is in the WHO. Through the new regulations that the Indonesian delegation fought for, virus experts may examine specimens of swine flu virus that is in the WHO laboratory.????

Siti Fadilah also hope that government does not tricked bid for donor assistance for swine flu. The swine flu than the original is not too dangerous (low pathogenic), Indonesia still has a fund of Rp38 billion to prepare for bird flu pandemic that can be allocated to the swine flu. (Tlc/OL-06)

Minister of Health WHO Discussion

Jakarta - Minister of Health Siti Fadilah Supari criticizing the World Health Organization (WHO) which states assessed too fast for the status of the five phases of the spread of flu or Mexican influenza type-A (new H1N1), giving rise to panic. "If the WHO pandemic is announced, he was against its own website," said Siti Fadilah at the Ministry of Health, Jakarta, yesterday.

WHO site, said Siti Fadilah, said that the status of pandemic occur only if the death rate (mortality) and the distribution of numbers (morbiditas) a disease is high. In fact, he said, mortality due to flu Mexico is lower than the bird flu (H5N1).

He also does not rate the WHO had issued a death due to official data flu Mexico. Estimated based on the Ministry of Health, the death is 2.2 percent. This is far below the bird flu, which reached 80-90 percent.

Issues mutation between Mexico and flu bird flu death is mentioned, said Siti Fadilah, are also not necessarily true. "Mutations take a very long time," he explains. Even if the case, he said, it can be tracked from the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza (GISAID) - a consortium of global influenza. Until now, said Siti Fadilah, no H1N1 virus mutation.

Based on the analysis GISAID, including the H1N1 virus is off to the human resources are low (low pathogenic). Up to now have not found cases of H1N1 in a tropical country. Generally, said Siti Fadilah, cases of flu in this country occur in subtropical regions.

Fadilah WHO is assessing the frightening news of raging pandemic flu Mexico. According to him, WHO should publish the type of virus, the possibility of mutation, and the readiness of the pandemic will increase the status. He added that WHO is currently examining the mechanism of checks from pigs to humans and human to human. DIANING SARI

Efforts Facing Pig Flu pandemic

Epiphani by Imelda Yosephin bankrupt

Of a swine flu pandemic is a global threat to the world as a whole should be the international response through the coordinated and comprehensive. The necessary solidarity and active role of all parties without exception. Bodies such as the UN, the WHO (health), FAO (food and agriculture), and Oie (animal health agencies) must work together and exchange information about efforts to control this disease. In addition, it should be adequate financial support from financial institutions the world to assist countries in the world who face the threat of a potential pandemic.

In the global strategy, announced it is important to prevention efforts in case of swine flu pandemic. Efforts will be focused on preparing, menyiagakan, and respond to potential pandemic. This is groundless because the number of deaths will be very dependent on the implementation of the strategy, how the international community to investigate the speed, quality and response to pandemic flu pigs. Following stage in the strategy is how to detect the virus by using the epidemiology and surveillance of you a network.

For information, is a pandemic of plague that occurred simultaneously in a region that is relatively large. From the results of the calculation using the mathematical modeling that the statistics referred to the pig flu virus mutation can cut up to millions of people around the world. The worst scenario can be the victim died more than the number above. In fact, the latest news from the team of researchers from the UK and the United States in his article that was published in the online journal biomedik, the occurrence of swine flu pandemic is only a problem of time. If the flu virus in pigs is similar to the structure of the H1N1 virus was successfully mutated, pandemic actually occurs. Such Pendemi flu have occurred in Spain, which is known as the Spanish flu, occurs at the end of the first world war (1918-1919). Only in six months time, this virus killed forty million people, it is subtipe H1N1. Anticipate the possibility of a pandemic required systematic effort to cut off the chain of transmission to menghambatnya {to impede; obstruct; hamper; hinder; delay; detain}.

Expansion and the spread of the swine flu frightening many countries, particularly countries that have not been any cases of swine flu, including Indonesia. This is worsened with the concerns of swine flu virus causes to mutate so that it can continue (and) to spread easily human to human. Appear much concern because the virus of swine flu at this time generally have several important genetic changes. And, these changes are similar to the Spanish flu virus. Biomolecular experts say that the Spanish flu virus only changed the amino acid 25-30 of a total of 4400 amino acid proteins. However, small changes in this amino acid change has only become a killer virus which was never forgotten as long as human civilization.

The threat of pandemic impendence responded to seriously by all countries in this hemisphere. Agency fightin/controlling/protecting and disease prevention confirmation that the United States swine flu in the Mexican strain (derived virus) of H5N1, so they tighten restrictions on the control pigs and pig products. Prevention efforts are recommended by agencies that are qualified in dealing with the infectious virus in a group must combat with the vaccine and the appropriate medication. Suggested using a combination of antiviral drugs Tamiflu and vaccination efforts pigs with a vaccine using the most good.

Known as Tamiflu can reduce the number of symptoms (simptom) and can slow the spread of flu. However, the need to keep in mind that these drugs can not eliminate the virus. Only drug to prevent the spread of virus replication results from the surface of the infected cell so that the virus can not spread to other cells. Developed countries, of course, will not be difficult to stockpile Tamiflu drug is expensive to provide residents in the pandemic threat.

According to the author of this virus is necessary to use in analyzing the intact virus genom whole virus (whole genome). This step is potentially able to identify the characteristics of the virus so that in turn can be directed to the development of better vaccines. Reports of the virus genome analysis revealed that amino acid residues appeared on the tape receptor swine flu virus in humans with the virus in pigs and H5N1 viruses. A scientific review article said that influenza virus H1N1 (swine flu) and H5N1 (bird flu), including a type-A join if that type of virus can produce a more violent.

In the field of molecular biology research and biomedik, research on the characteristics of the virus will culminate in dihasilkannya vaccines, antiviral drugs, and it is easier diagnosisnya through the development of test kits. Our country is an example of the research has not focused on the virus and how to combat it. This is only done during the analysis and identification methods with PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction or a chain reaction polimerasi). Research to understand the character with both virus and viral DNA pengurutan (sequensing) is not sufficient just to use PCR. This is due to the PCR results, as not all the known genes identified, the research on the virus required a good understanding and insight about all parts of the genome, including functions of the genes in it.

The government gave more attention to the groups of research and development (research and development groups), especially related to the field of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biotechnology in India. Attention in the form of the development of human resources in the field, the modern instrumentation that supports the biomedical research, to the development of a laboratory that meets international standards. Without that, we left behind in the handling of a viral disease related, especially with the emergence of virus variants variants-new, more death. In this case, the necessary policies and integrated program from the government and related institutions. Or, the government is waiting for more before the victim realizes the importance of developing a strong research basis .***

VIVAnews - Ministry of Health set a fixed procedure and control of influenza in the framework of the security of Asia Development Bank Meeting in Bali and the World Ocean Conference in Manado.

"Because many people on account of foreign entry and the Department of implementing procedures to prevent this pandemic H1N1 virus," said Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari in office, Jakarta, on Monday 4 May 2009.

Procedures, he said, will be done with very strict. "Start from the airport," said Siti. He also stressed that every patient suspected will be referred directly to hospitals that have been appointed.

Special Meeting for the Asian Development Bank, the Government appoints Sanglah Hospital Denpasar. Meanwhile, a meeting for the World Ocean Conference in Manado, Kandau Hospital which is the lead government.

In every hospital that has been prepared isolation rooms for patients who are suspected. "Works the same as the handling of the virus H5N1 or bird flu," he said. "In patients suspected is also given the opportunity to seek second opinion," said Siti.

Health teams, he said, reserves the right to make investigations in epidemiology securing two meetings. About costs, he said, "All by the Government."

Director General of Disease Control and Environmental Penyehatan said Tjandra Yoga in every airport screening will be made to the newcomers. Not only that, said Tjandra, has also prepared an ambulance with full equipment. "As anticipated," he said.



Indonesian Officials Discuss Swine Flu
May 5, 2009
http://222.124.164.132/web/det...
After bird flu disease (avian influenza) made the world health scene some time ago, now people in various parts of the world are dealing with the development of flu swine disease (swine influenza).  Although it has not yet penetrated to all the countries, each country is now busy with affairs of anticipation and prevention of swine flu, including Indonesia.
The Indonesian government did not want to stay silent about various efforts in order to not have swine flu.  Starting from the central to local level, it is busy doing all the anticipation and prevention.  The Department of Health continues to follow the development of health care that has occurred in the world by collecting data and information and scientific studies from various sources.  According to the Director General of Disease Control and Penyehatan Environment (P2PL) MOH Prof. Dr. Tjandra Yoga Aditama spp MARS, according to International Health Regulation 2005, each member country of the World Health Organization (WHO) has a focal point which automatically gets a report on the development of flu disease that occurs in Mexican pigs and many other parts of the world.

Although the disease caused by swine flu virus H1N1 has not yet been found in Indonesia, but the MOH has taken various steps preparedness. Director of Disease Control of Animals brought P2PL MOH Director General of Rita Kusriastuti MSc states, government has distributed oseltamivir to all bird flu health hospitals, Port Health Office, Environmental Health Engineering Center, Public Health District and the Province, which is basically the same as the drugs for bird flu H5N1.  MOH is also still in the available stock of oseltamivir.   MOH also set up 100 hospitals that are able to handle reference cases of swine flu.  Each hospital has a patient isolation room, ventilator, drugs and some other health facilities, including self-protective equipment (APD) for health workers.
According to dr Rita, the simulation of pandemic influenza epicenter has already been done twice to improve the capacity and ability of the government and the community in anticipating when pandemics truly occur.

Swine flu symptoms are similar to bird flu, including fever, cough cold, sluggishness, fatigue, sore throat, shortness of breath or rapid breath, and may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.  It travels through the air and also through direct contact with patients with the incubation period of 3-5 days, said Dr. Rita.  Therefore, the community must use cautious behavior for swine flu by maintaining clean and healthy living, close the nose and mouth when sneezing, washing hands with soap activities, and immediately examine health when experiencing symptoms of flu.

"For people who have to travel to countries with swine flu, it is suggested that they go to the nearest health facility to have their health examined," said Dr. Rita.  

Health Minister Dr Siti Fadilah Supari first SpJP (K), as submitted by Center for Public Communication Secretariat General of the MOH, said that although swine flu cases have not been reported in Indonesia, the government is making efforts to anticipate the spread of the virus, or influenza, because of bird flu since the disease broke out in 2005, various efforts have been made to prevent and anticipate events outside the normal influenza.
Menkes assured that the government still has enough stock of the antiviral drug oseltamivir as effective treatment for bird flu and influenza disease caused by swine influenza virus tipa A subtipe H1N1.
(snip)
In addition, dr Siti Fadilah reminded people that sick people use the flu mask so that it does not transmit to others. (snip) Menkes explains that the swine flu virus H1N1 usually only lives in cold areas that have four seasons.  Possible H1N1 virus will not be able to live in the tropics such as Indonesia.  However, measures of prevention and awareness remain to be done in order not to spread to Indonesia.

P2PL MOH Director General Prof. Dr Tjandra Yoga Aditama spp MARS added, the swine flu disease is caused by influenza A virus H1N1, a subtype that can be transmitted through animals, especially pigs, and there is a possibility of transmission between humans.  In general, this disease is similar to influenza.  The H1N1 virus is usually found in humans and animals, especially pigs, but both have different characteristics. So also with the H5N1 bird flu virus, although the same influenza virus type A.  Flu spreads through the air, and also through direct contact between and patients, in which the incubation period is 3-5 days.

Anticipating Pig Flu Virus
May 5, 2009
http://www.riauinfo.com/main/n...
Pekanbaru: To anticipate the spread of bird flu, all the pig farms and trade in Pekanbaru are together in one area, thus, monitoring of the virus that threatens the world population will be easier.

"I've instructed the Pekanbaru City Agriculture and the City of Pekanbaru to unify trade and pig farms that are in Pekanbaru," said Mayor Pekanbaru Herman Abdullah to journalists in Pekanbaru.

In addition in this report that they will unify trade livestock and pigs, Herman also claims to have ordered the authorities to provide the understanding and dissemination of swine flu danger to the pig breeders and traders.

"At this time the location of pig farms and trade in Pekanbaru is scattered. This will allow the monitoring of flu virus in pigs," said Herman.  "So later on pig farming and trade will be in one area."

He hopes all pig breeders and traders will cooperate in maintaining a hygienic environment, for example, do not remove the dirt with the pig markets.  If cleaning can be kept, he is sure the swine flu virus will not travel to the city.

Data of the Ministry of Health Australia issued on Monday (4 / 5) morning show that the number of people waiting for results of tests of swine flu reaches 67 people, or far down from the condition of 30 April reached 114 people.
       
Citizens suspected of suffering from flu symptoms that are present only in six of eight states in Australia, the Australian Capital Territory (1), New South Wales (48), Victoria (1), Queensland (13), South Australia (3 ), and Western Australia (1).
       
Tasmania and Northern Territory do not have any suspects flu that has killed at least 152 people in Mexico that.

Countries Must Remain Vigilant About Swine Flu
May 5, 2009
http://www.elshinta.com/v2003a...
The World Health Organization, WHO, said the countries in the world cannot relax their vigilance in overseeing the distribution of swine flu.  Currently almost 900 cases of swine flu from all continents have been confirmed so that the WHO requests the governments in every country to remain vigilant.  To date the virus activity was seen up and down, according to the WHO, but is still too early to say that attacks by the virus is already past its peak since the first time found in Mexico.

WHO's warning is appearing after the Mexican Ministry of Health said that the cases caused by this virus is reduced.  In Mexico it is estimated about 100 people have died due to cases of swine flu, although the number of cases was only 22 that can be confirmed. But on Sunday local time the Mexican Ministry of Health Jose Angel Cordova said the virus is currently passing through the peak from 23 to 28 April.

"The evolution of the epidemic that has occurred in this time has entered a declining phase," he said in a press conference.

However, WHO official Gregory Hartl said the sequence of activities of this flu may have peakedm but it does not mean the virus is stopped.  Data on the last Sunday before the occurrence of the new cases that appeared in El Salvador, said the WHO, has found 898 cases of swine flu in 18 countries.  In the United States transmission between humans evolved from the 160 into 244.  Officials there said the likelihood was increasing that this number is not because of new cases that continue to pop in there, but because of the confirmation of new laboratory results to be announced.  An expert from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention United States said that the virus was ascertained at this time to continue to spread.

"In fact, this virus is already almost throughout the U.S. territories," said Dr. Anne Schuchat. "But that does not mean that every person is infected with this virus, but the virus is already in the community."

Researchers for WHO Food Safety Issues, Peter Ben Embarek, said at this time that it is necessary to enhance supervision after the virus has been found to have infected pigs in Canada. However he said there is no recommendation to destroy the animals, and so far pigs are quite safe for consumption.

"There is no risk for the consumer in eating pork products that have been cooked," he said.

Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari said on Monday that her office would carry out extra measures to screen foreign delegates - arriving in the country to attend two international meetings - for H1N1 influenza, commonly known as swine flu.  Supari said that all visitors would have to undergo the proper procedure, which included a thermal scanner screening.

"There will be no exceptions, not even for heads of state or international journalists," she said.

The Health Ministry added that those who would be found stricken with the flu would receive proper medical attention.  The Asian Development Bank's annual meeting kicked off in Bali on Saturday and wraps up today, while the World Ocean Conference will run from May 11 to 14 in Manado, North Sulawesi. Some sectors have voiced concerns that participants from countries that have reported cases of swine flu could introduce the virus into the country.  
(snip)

"We have arranged standard procedures for the Asian Development Bank annual meeting in Bali and will apply the same procedures for the World Ocean Conference in Manado," she said in a press conference.

According to the ministry, state-owned Sanglah Hospital in Depasar is in charge of handling preventive measures for the ADB meeting, while the Kandouw Hospital will screen WOC delegates in Manado.  Tjandra Yoga Aditama, the ministry's director general for communicable diseases, said ambulances from the appointed hospitals were on stand-by at the airports of Bali and North Sulawesi in case foreign delegates needed medical help.  Indroyono Soesilo, the WOC head secretary, said two thermal scanners had been installed at the Manado airport while another one would be set up.

"The KRI Soeharso was dispatched to Manado on Sunday along with 60 specialist doctors," he said, referring to the country's hospital ship.

While putting in place all necessary health measures, Supari reassured the public that health officials were on their toes. Last week, Supari said that swine flu wouldn't thrive in a tropical country like Indonesia.

"I hope everybody, including the public and the media, react normally and stay calm because the government is doing everything possible to prevent the virus from entering the country," she said.

Supari said the government would get the budget for its anti-swine flu program from the one previously set aside for bird flu.  Supari also denied that she requested some $38 million worth of loans from the United States for swine flu prevention in Indonesia.

"I have never proposed any loans to any country to address the swine flu situation," she said. "It is not necessary for now."

The thought of swine flu rampant in Indo or Egypt give me the shivers n/t

Other Flu Strains
Other seasonal flu strains are endemic to Indonesia, but H5N1 has not acquired easy transmission from them.  Does this new strain increase those odds significantly other than being one more lottery ticket?

To calm the wife buy cases of chocolate, to calm the husband buy cases of booze, and to calm the children...... heck the booze and chocolate should work.

[ Parent ]
I don't know that it doesn't.
It does introduce a new strain, one that has a bird flu element. That strain hasn't had the opportunity to mix with H5N1 so we don't know if they will have a better affinity than current human strains.

If it explodes into an epidemic in those countries it will increase the chances of H5N1 meeting A(H1N1).

A huge increase in non H5N1 flu cases will cause chaos and hide most H5N1 cases (at least until people are very sick) and make treating H5N1 cases even more difficult and increasing the time that person has of passing on H5N1 in H2H transmission.

A(H1N1) may jump back to pigs (maybe why Egypt are culling pigs) and increase the chances of mixing with H5N1.

Tamiflu stocks may be used to treat A(H1N1), depleting them for use with H5N1.

A(H1N1) may make key countries take their eye off the ball.

Please Redefine Pig Flu pandemic-related

MI / JOKO Sardjono

JAKARTA - MI: Committee of the National Bird Flu Control and Preparedness Facing pandemic Influenza (Komnas FPBI) holds, the world need to do a re-definition of terms for the determination of pandemic alert phases.

This is to avoid polemic pandemic, such as determining the status of Minister of Health Siti Fadilah Supari that rate is about policy gaffe label phase in the five outbreaks flub pigs (swine flu) by the WHO world health body.

"Experts will need to make revisions to re-define the pandemic. This is adjusted with the development of modern types of infectious disease," Expert Panel members cetus Komnas Bird Flu Emil Agustiono in Jakarta, Wednesday (6 / 5).

Previously, Menkes Siti Fadilah not see eye to eye with the determination of the five phases of swine flu in the total levels of the six phases of pandemic alert. According to Menkes, the label on the five phases of swine flu, WHO to take a decision only based on the study of the epidemiology evidence (based on the distribution of the disease) include the study without evidence virologis (genetic mutation of the virus), which still has not been examined and published.

Determination by the WHO pandemic phases considered Menkes also ignore the factor level mortality (death), and only refers to the level morbiditas (level of attack of the disease) only. In fact, compared with the bird flu, swine flu mortality rate is very low, only 2%, is not commensurate with the bird flu cases, such as the mortalitasnya reached 80%. Until this second, cases of bird flu is still in phase three.

According to, Emil, both WHO and the MOH, have the same argument is true. Based on the basic science epidemilogi, the determination of the pandemic phase only elements based on epidemiology. "His name alone epidemiology, that is, outbreaks of disease (infectious) on the population," augment him. Menkes statement is true also. The supplement Emil, the determination of a modern pandemic phase, it is not complete without involving the element of mortality. Labeling pandemic phase, for Emil clearly not simple. Imbasnya very large.

For example in Mexico. Given the post-pandemic alert phase, the economy eventually destroyed them. Section, a number of countries, Mexico isolate. "In the incident cluster (case group) in Karo, North Sumatra, in 2006, Indonesia imposed by almost the same as the WHO Mexico. We are fighting tooth and nail," he added.

Komnas Bird Flu also holds, should the WHO, to provide compensation for the state with (affected country) isolate(d) because the label of the WHO. Compensation can be a form of debt elimination, environmental sanitation assistance, or the establishment of trust fund.

Emil assert, countries members of WHO, should have to step on the International Healt (health?) Amendment Regulation (Ihr) in 2005.

About Menkes request that the WHO announced virologis study conducted by WHO to the public, Emil said, it is not necessary according to Emil. "Study virologis enough just to be experts only," commentary.

Meanwhile, Director of Disease Control of Animals brought P2PL MOH Director General of Rita Kusriastuti disprove that news, a TKW by the initials SC, home of the new place to work in Taiwan, found out pigs exposed to flu. "The only bad with regular flu," augment him.

Rita added that the clinical symptoms of swine flu sejatinya is similar to ordinary flu. The H1N1 virus classic (bermutasi so before swine flu) is basically in the human body. Filtering process on the SC, according to Rita greatly according to the procedure, in order to prevent the spread of swine flu in Indonesia. (Tlc/OL-03)

However to learn results the team just sent the sample saliva swabs from the pig noses to the Disease Handling Wilayah Hall 6 Jogjakarta.  Result of the pig flu virus will not be known by us for one month more, said the Head of the Field (the Head of Sector) the Health of the BPPP Animal, Choirunnisak.  According to him, the investigation in this pig livestock breeding for the time being have not found the existence of the illness. However, to confirm and refer in results of the laboratory test, he asked that the community not carry out direct contact with pig livestock breeding, both in the area of the pen and the animal market that sells pigs.  If seeing the population and his season tasted minimal if pig flu until crept here. But because of the ferocity H1N1 same as our bird flu continued to pass by investigation and spraying, he said.

The Patient Of Pig Flu Was Treated In Jakarta
Friday, 8 Mei 2009 - 01:05 wib

Jakarta - the Infectious Disease Hospital (RSPI) Sulianti Saroso, Jakarta Utara, was treating the patient suspect pig flu (swine influenza). The patient had citizenship of Australia, named John (53), currently was treated intensive in space of isolation room Mawar Nomor 6 this hospital.

Public relations RSPI Sulianti Saroso Tien Rahmi said, John arrived in RSIP on Wednesday approximately struck 24,00 of WIB. He it was known entered Indonesia through the Airport Soekarno Hatta after arriving from Hong Kong.

"The official of the airport clinic immediately undertake the inspection of this man after learning the temperature of casualties's body reached 38 degree celcius, he was reconciled here because of being expected infected pig flu," said Tien, on Thursday (7/5/2009).

The team of the specialist doctor RSPI immediately took the sample of casualties's blood to confirm whether John positive terjangkit pig flu or not. To prevent the spread, he continued, the patient was treated in special isolation space that was provided. "This action was taken because this illness could spread between humankind," he said.

His side added, the community must always be on the alert with the sign of influenza. The virus H1N1 from Mexico this had signs similar to common influenza like the fever, the cough, pilek, weak, tired, throat pain, the fast or breathless breath. This sign also often was accompanied in a sick manner and diarrhoea.

Negative Pig Flu, The Australian White Person Was Still Being Treated In RSPI
Indra Subagja - detikNews

Jakarta - the white person from Australia, John McBright (56), still was treated in RSPI Sulianti Suroso. Despite results of pig flu of the negative, McBright continued to undergo the maintenance in isolation space.

"He was treated in room space of Mawar number 6," said RSPI Tin Rahmi public relations in RSPI, Street Sunter Permai Raya, Jakarta Utara, on Thursday (7/5/2009).

In the Roses room was gotten 20 special wards for the sign sufferer of pig flu. Around the Roses room then the visitor was not allowed to approach.

McBright entered RSPI on May 5 the night. He reconciliation from the SOS Clinic. "His condition was limp and hot high," added Tin.

Currently McBright still underwent the maintenance. Beforehand the Head of the Centre of the Control of the Crisis Department of Health Rustam S Pakaya explained that McBright was known just arrived from Hong Kong. There he met his friend that the American resident.

McBright that was determined suffered the fever in the Soekarno-Hatta Airport, was run off with to RSPI Sulianti Saroso, Jakarta Utara.

The DBD Sufferer In The Special Capital District Of Jakarta High

Several last months of the number of Dengue sufferers of the Dengue Fever illness (DBD) that was caused by the Aides Aigepty mosquitoes bite in the Special Capital District of Jakarta was high enough.

The division head public relations of Health Service Special Capital District of Jakarta, drg Tini Suryanti, in Jakarta, on Thursday (7/5) said, the DBD illness was the illness kind that was most prominent in last months.

In January the number of DBD illness sufferers totalling 3,141 people, in February 3,104 people, in March 4,095 people and in April as many as 1,841 people.

"The last data was still being not yet perfect because not yet all the reports from our area received," he said.

In the meantime Sudarko, the staff in the Community Health Centre of Cakung Jakarta Timur, said already several last months the dengue fever patient in his work territory in Cakung was high enough against the month beforehand.

"Nevertheless this patient was still being enough with medical treatment to treat the road," he said.

Apart from the DBD illness said Suryani, DKI Jakarta health service also grouped several prominent illness kinds and spread other.

Like the sufferer of the typhus illness (Thypoid) in January reached 793 patients, in February 648 patients, in March 668 patients, and April reached 233 patients.

The sufferer of the diarrhoea illness in January 686 people, in February 728 people, in March 893 people and in April as many as 284 people.

Two pig flu suspect patients tested negative infection.

May 8, 2009

Head of National Committee of Bird Flu Control and Influenza Pandemic Preparedness (Komnas FBPI), Bayu Krisnamurthi said that until now there were no foreigners were indicated positive H1N1 or pig flu.

Previously, two foreign tourists rushed into referral hospitals because suspected to have pig flu infection. "They both detected by thermo scanner, in Surabaya and Jakarta. But they both negative infection, it was only common flu or ILI (influenza like illness) not H1N1", said Bayu.

In Jakarta, a pig flu suspect patient is treated at Sulianti Suroso hospital, North Jakarta. The expatriate was known to have transit history in Hong Kong before arriving in Jakarta. In Surabaya, Siti Ngaisah – a Banyuwangi resident – was also tested negative pig flu virus. She was reported arrived from Taiwan when thermo scanner of Surabaya airport detected her rising body temperature.

(If) Reject quarantined, Pig Flu Suspect Patients threatened (with) Confinement

Thursday, May 07, 2009 | 08:56 WIB

TEMPO Interactive, Manado: Pig Flu Patients suspect can be punished when prison confinement reject quarantined. This is arranged in three laws, namely Law Number 4 Year 1984 About Outbreak, Act No. 23 of 1992 About Health, and Law No. 24 year 2007 About Disaster Relief.

"If we can not reject quarantined, prison, punishment," said Head of the Crisis Control Center Rustam S Pakaya kepadawa journalists in Manado, on Thursday (7 / 5). Quarantine rules on this, he continue, previously also applied to have occurred during outbreaks of SARS and Bird Flu some time ago.

Rustam explain the government must minimize the risk of disaster in order not to spread more widely. In addition the government is responsible elindungi all Indonesian citizens from the threat of disease. Patients affected by a disease if they are not quarantined potenially spread the disease.

When quarantined patients must undergo some tests, like blood drawn to do Rapid Test is a rapid test results come out within six hours and the test asilnya {original; indigenous; native; authentic; real; genuine; unadulterated; bona fide}out within 24 hours. In addition, patients also undergo throat bribe.

Anticipating H1N1 mutation

Distribution and transmission of swine flu to humans occurred rapidly with the mortality rate is relatively high and have occurred in some parts of the world. Distribution and transmission of swine flu usually occurs between the pig population in one ranch/farm, and can even spread from one farm to another farm in the area. While this pattern of transmission of disease to humans through the air can pollute (with) the H1N1 flu virus in pigs. On the pig farm workers, vendors, visitors piggery are potentially fell ill swine flu. Swine flu is a respiratory channel interference due to influenza virus type A subtipe H1N1.

Reporting medical research review concluded, outbreaks of swine flu at this time caused by a new form of virus spread from human to human through the air. This is worrisome because it can occur in people that is not in contact with pigs. Swine flu viruses circulating at this time according to the results of laboratory analysis of the genetic element is a fusion of virus bird flu, human flu, and swine flu.

For the treatment of bird flu which is recommended by Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) is to provide antiviral drug oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or zanamivir (Relenza). As known tamiflu can reduce the number of symptoms (simptom) and can slow the spread of flu. However, the need to keep in mind, these drugs can not eliminate the virus. Only drug to prevent the spread of virus replication results from the surface of the infected cell so that the virus can not spread to other cells.

Website of the world health agency, WHO, published a number of cases of flu caused by influenza virus type A subtipe H1N1. Currently, the experts continue to examine these institutions and the virus variants, other variants. Virus infection in the respiratory channel on the flu virus infects cells epitel cells from respiratory channel. Cell groups that form the protective layer covering the surface of organs or pore-pore body.

Journey begins with the virus in the virus binding hemaglutinin acid sialik on the cell membrane, and the virus membrane fuse with the cell membrane and virus absorbed into cells. Continued with the release of virus genetic material in the form of RNA into the cell nucleus, genes replicated viral RNA and RNA carrying a message, or mRNA. The next process, mRNA is used by cells to make proteins the virus is new, and the virus protein and RNA joined to make viral particles. Phase finally is a new virus particles infects cells other.

Dessiminating spread of the swine flu fears many countries, particularly countries that have not been any cases of swine flu, including Indonesia. This is worsened with the concerns of swine flu virus causes will mutate so that it can continue to spread easily human to human. Appear much concern because the virus of swine flu at this time generally have several important genetic changes. The Spanish flu virus that killed tens of millions of men between the years 1918-1920 only change the amino acids 25-30 of a total of 4400 amino acid proteinnya it. Results of sequencing nukleotidanya concluded there are some types of influenza virus, namely, type A, type B and type C. For influenza virus type A consists of some strain, ie, H1N1, H3N2, H5N1, H7N7, H9N2, and there are some other strain that has been identified. As known, genome virus causes a form of swine flu virus RNA (ribonucleic acid), which is included in the influenza A virus genus and family members orthomyxoviridae.

New flu virus strain that can kill pigs if not identified early. Moreover, a new virus strain can spread quickly, because one does not have any natural immunity against this new virus. According to the calculations of biomedical experts (it will) take several months to develop a vaccine to prevent the virus kill this.

Prevention efforts conducted in a way that vaccination should be done carefully because it can trigger the selection of virus mutation. Because the virus is able to attack back mutant species and even other species. Handling of this virus is necessary to use in analyzing the intact virus genome whole virus (whole genome). This step is potentially able to identify the characteristics of the virus so that in turn can be directed to the development of better vaccines. Reports of the virus genome analysis revealed that amino acid residues appeared on the tape reseptor swine flu virus in humans with the virus in pigs and H1N1 viruses.

In the field of molecular biology research and biomedical, research on the characteristics of the virus will culminate in producing vaccines, antiviral drugs, and easier diagnosis through the development of test kits. Our country is an example of the research has not focused on the virus and how to combat it. This is only done during the analysis and identification method with PCR method (Polymerase Chain Reaction or a chain reaction polimerasi). Research to understand the character with both virus and viral DNA pengurutan (sequencing) is not sufficient just to use PCR. This is due to the PCR results, as not all the known genes identified, the research on the virus required a good understanding and insight about all parts of the genome, including functions of the genes in it.

Until this program for disease prevention, and this has been and is done by various countries in facing the danger of this disease. This program is a lot of attention from WHO and research institutions. From experience in dealing with the spread of bird flu virus infection in the year-ago month, the case of swine flu can actually dealt with well. This of course does not make inadvertent and we must remain vigilant. Because if the program does not run well on as desired, especially in case of mutation and show swine flu virus variants that were violent and easy to spread, it certainly appears a new problem. Researchers and observers believe the efforts have been made for the optimal and appropriate plans to run in the various countries affected by swine flu.

With DNA tests can actually be far more character and attack the virus where the virus originated. With a test that can be similarity (homology) virus that attacks the virus with the swine flu that has been found, so most can not be alleged that the early origin of the virus. Of a detailed and systematic DNA tests can determine the virus, whether the virus is transmitted from pigs to humans or have been able to spread from human to human.

Lessons that need to be drawn from this event is already time for the government to give more attention to the institutions of research and development, particularly related to the field of molecular biology, biochemistry, and biotechnology in India. Attention in the form of the development of human resources in the field, the modern instrumentation that supports the research biomedik, and to the development of a laboratory that meets international standards. Without that, we will be left behind in the handling of a viral disease related, especially with the emergence of virus variants variants-new, more death. It is important to anticipate the emergence of virus variants in the future .***

Prepare Jaksel Land 2.5 Ha for RPA

BERITAJAKARTA.COM - 08-05-2009 16:53
Urgent needs House Cut Chicken (RPA) to create Sudin Jakarta Husbandry and Fisheries South race plan development. Now have been prepared covering 2.5 hectares of land on Jl Muhtar RT 03/011, Petukanganutara, Pesanggrahan. RPA are completed in 2010 is expected to make the practice of cutting chicken become more centralized.

Kasudin Animal Husbandry and Fisheries, South Jakarta, Chaidir Taufik, disclose, the existence of the RPA is required as a follow-up of DKI Pemprov regulations that no longer allows the cutting of poultry in the settlement and the market. "With the presence of RPA, the development of poultry health more easily observed because tersentralisasi in one place only," he said to beritajakarta.com, Friday (8 / 5).

He breaks down, at this time there are 27 registered and 90 shelter chicken abattoir in which a number of areas. Place during this supply the needs of poultry in the South every day to reach 40-60 thousand tails.

"There are 319 people chicken traders in South Jakarta, we have sosialisasikan to them for not doing more cutting chicken at the market and the settlement later in the year 2010, because the RPA is so, only practical form of the chicken meat that can only enter the market," he said .

Chaidir add, the RPA will be built is located on Jl Muhtar RT 03/011, Petukanganutara Sub Pesanggrahan. Land area of 2.5 hectares which will be used as the RPA, the plan will be made up to three building blocks. "The ground is a little basin, but is not a problem we akan uruk up to 40 centimeters so that the position be the same as the other land," he said.

RPA later land located adjacent to the land that will be JORR project. This location is very strategic, because so JORR project so the supply of local chickens do not need more people across the settlement, because it can go directly to the RPA. "So there such a bird flu cases, can diminimalisir smallest possible," he said.

North Sumatra Received Tamiflu For Anticipation Of The Spreading Of Pig Flu
Khairul Ikhwan - detikNews

Medan - Although the spreading and the spread of pig flu were not yet found in North Sumatra (North Sumatra), but Departeman Health sent thousands of items of the Oseltamivir capsule (Tamiflu) to the Health Service (Dinkes) North Sumatra.

The capsule was accepted through the package of the post, on Friday (8/5/2009) in the afternoon. Before being distributed to the hospital and health centres in the Medan City, the Oseltamivir capsule was for the time being kept in the warehouse of Dinkes North Sumatra, Street HM Yamin Medan.

The Sub head Agency Pharmacy Dinkes Siskandri said, from 72 thousand items that his plan was allocated as the anticipation action, just 36 thousand items that were accepted Dinkes North Sumatra.

"As soon as possible the Oseltamivir capsule will be distributed all through the hospital and health centres in Medan. This of only beginning stages as efforts anticipation early if having the resident that indicate spread the virus H1N1. The further handling would more comprehensive," said Siskandri to the reporter in Medan.

In early anticipation, Dinkes North Sumatra also established the command post of pig flu in several points in the Medan City. Siskandri also said, for anticipation of the spread and the spreading of pig flu in the level of the regency and the city, Departeman Health RI will send directly approximately three thousand items without going through Dinkes North Sumatra.

ASEAN Agreed To Increase Medicine Supplies Anti Pig Flu
Rita Uli Hutapea - detikNews

Bangkok - South-East Asian countries agreed to increase medicine supplies towards the plague of flu H1N1 (pig flu). They also agreed to coordinate their response to this plague.

Was like this the statement together that was spent by the Health Ministers (Menkes) ASEAN in the meeting in Bangkok, Thailand as being reported the AFP news agency, on Friday (8/5/2009).

Apart from being attended Menkes from 10 ASEAN member countries, this meeting also joined by the ministers from China, Japan and South Korea.

In the meeting, Japan made an announcement will contribute 500 thousand doses of medicine antivirus as well as hundreds of thousands of sets of the protection implement for ASEAN if from time to time the flu virus H1N1 spread to this territory.

In the meeting, the ministers also agreed that the rule ban on the trip in waging war on flu H1N1 was not needed.

"The restriction on the trip will have an impact very small in stopping the spreading of this virus, but being very annoying and caused the impact of the negative that was big on the sluggishness of global economics at this time," said the statement with the ministers.

SecGen ASEAN Surin Pitsuwan delivered thank you to Japan on this donation. "Thank you we to Japan because of providing supplies 500,000 antivirus and personal protection equipment for 750,000 people," said Pitsuwan.

Beforehand in the speech on this conference opening, the Prime Minister (PM) Thai Abhisit Vejjajiva appealed to Asia to co-operate in facing the flu virus H1N1.

"There was not one country then that could control and overcome this threat was alone. Precisely the intensive international co-operation was needed," said Abhisit.


The Handling Of Pig Flu Deviated, The Indonesian Pig Breeder Incurred A Loss

The Handling Of Pig Flu Deviated, The Indonesian Pig Breeder Incurred A Loss
Gede Suardana - detikNews

Denpasar - the Government was very incessant prevented the entry of the virus of pig flu to Indonesia. However, unfortunately efforts that were followed still it was thought were deviating from substance this case.

The criticism was sent by the Association of the Indonesian Veterinary Surgeon (PDHI) the Balinese Branch and the Universitas Udayana School Of Veterinary Medicine (FKH Unud) Denpasar in the Clinic Animal FKH Unud House, Street Se- Setan, Denpasar, on Friday (8/5/2009).

Dr IGN Komang Mahardika said, the plague of the virus infulenza A (H1N1) to the person with the Mexican epicentre that happened was caused by the virus that spread from the person to the person. Was based on the data that was available at this time, proof that the pig as the source vector was not completely.

The potential for the pandemic and the entry of the virus to Indonesia was biggest was through the person's traffic. "Till at this time, did not yet have the spreading of the virus H1N1 from the pig to humankind in Indonesia," said Mahardika.

Mahardika considered, was based on this fact, handling efforts that were carried out by the government uptil now to prevent the spread of this virus to Indonesia deviating.

"Because uptil now his name pig flu, his handling target became inexact. That uptil now was handled in Indonesia was the pig, in fact his virus from humankind to humankind," said Mahardika.

The impact resulting from keselahan that was worried will cause the extraordinary loss for the pig breeder. Rumours of pig flu weakened the network system safety social. That not only happened in Bali, but also in several areas like North Sumatra, North Sulawesi, NTT, the Moluccas, and Papua.

If this continued, said Mahardika, then was predicted will result in the loss for the pig breeder. In Bali for example, was predicted the loss reached Rp 30 billion. The loss was counted from the number of reductions totalling 23,800 tails per the year with the selling price that declined to Rp 13 thousand per the tail.

PDHI and FKH Unud also doubted the effectiveness of spraying disinfektan to the pig and the aircraft from overseas that just landed in the homeland as well as thermal scanner that was applied in the airport.

"The virus will die all if the aircraft entered sea that was full disinfektan. Could be confirmed the implement was guarded for full 24 hours?" Mahardika words.

It was for that purpose, his side menyarakan so that the government applies the most united handling system. Among them, the official must check the condition for the health of aircraft passengers who had had the story lived in the area infected minimal for the incubation period.

"In the story of the health was included the number of the telephone, nah the official must telephone him came back to ask about his health," he said.

Moreover, if found did something wrong one passenger that indicate pig flu, then all the passenger in the aircraft must be quarantined. PDHI and Unud then urged the government to replace the term of pig flu with the other term that did not mention pig words, that is A flu (H1N1) North America 2009.


Birds And The Pig Be Vaccinated

Birds And The Pig Be Vaccinated
Prevented H1N1 With The Vaccine H5N1

Bukittinggi, Padek - Better Safe Than Sorry. Apparently so that was carried out Pemko Bukittinggi to protect his community from the attack of pig flu. Although this case was not yet was found, but Kasubdin Taman Marga Satwa and the Kinantan Culture (TMSBK) Bukittinggi tried to carry out the step in anticipation of pig flu by spraying the vaccine H5N1 that usually to prevent bird flu.

The head of TBS-BK Bukittinggi, Ma'ruf Amin mentioned, at this time did not yet have the vaccine H1N1 for pig flu was given by the government. The reason for the time being his side used the vaccine H5N1, because of the work system of this vaccine was almost same.

"These efforts were carried out by us as the step in anticipation, so that the visitor could be comfortable," Ma'ruf words, yesterday. During spraying of the vaccine H5N1 in the region of TMSBK Bukittinggi, spraying was given priority to around the pigsty and birds. According to Ma'ruf, after grow him pig and birds flu, his side routinely indeed carried out spraying H5N1 twice a week, every time on Wednesday and on Saturday.

"So that the TBSBK region sterile from pig and birds flu. We hoped two deadly viruses that really threatened that could be anticipated earlier, so as to not have the visitor TMSBK and the Bukittinggi community that was affected by the two illnesses," he said. He mentioned, apart from spraying of his side also carried out the vaccination very direct a month for six pigs as well as dozens of other birds collections.

The Stable Visitor
The brightness of rumours of bird flu and the pig mature was alarmed will reduce the number of visitors TMSBK or the Bukittinggi zoo. If the visitor decreased, automatic will have an impact on PAD Bukittinggi. Responded to this matter, the Head TMSBK Ma'ruf stated, the community's visit at this time stayed stable. "The visitor was still stable, had not yet had the decline since rumours of this virus of pig flu began to spread," he stressed.

WHO: Was Ready To Face The Influenza Pandemic
Friday, 8 Mei 2009 | 22:00 WITA

Jakarta, Tribun - Countries of the world at this time was expected to be on the alert on the arrival of the influenza pandemic. That meaning that the preparedness plan must continue be carried out, the production capacity of the vaccine must be increased, and stock of the production of medicine antiviral must be increased.

Was like this was sent by the Director General the health body of the WHO world, Dr. Margaret Chan in his address in the special meeting agenda ASEAN Health Minister in Bangkok, Friday (8/5).

Margaret said, this was time that not assigned for divide nations throughout world. Pressure big also must be experienced by the ministers for the health. Just one hall that was clear that could be said about influenza viruses was the behaviour of the viruses that could not be forecasted. "No-one could say how at this time they were evolving" clear Margaret.

Therefore, Margaret said monitor on H5N1 should not be released as well as being on the alert faced H1N1. This virus became endemic in livestock breeding in several territories. It did not yet know how H5N1 will behave.

H5N1 according to Margaret conditioned our attitude seem like has become pandemic with the high death rate. The illness a kind could not be of course avoided will become the pandemic.

"The decision to state the pandemic was on my hands. I assure you, I will make the decision that was responsible for the sake of all of us" said Margaret ended his speech.


Three Swine Flu Suspects Sent Home
May 9, 2009
http://kesehatan.kompas.com/re...
Jakarta:  Three patients who were suspected to be infected by the A influenza virus (H1N1) finally were permitted to go home after undergoing quarantine in the reconciliation hospital.  Results of the laboratory inspection of the three patients showed that they were not infected by A H1N1 influenza.  The three patients were, SN, a Indonesian manpower worker from East Java that just came home from Taiwan.  Because of experiencing the signs similar to influenza, she was afterwards observed in the Hospital Dr Soetomo, Surabaya.  The other patient was a foreign citizen, age 40 years with the initial J, that was treated in the isolation space in RS Penyakit Infeksi Sulianti Saroso.  Moreover, L, a media foreign reporter that covered Bali, also was observed in the local hospital.  After being observed, the three patients evidently were not infected by the virus H1N1.  Therefore, currently they were finally permitted to go home from their hospitals where they were treated in isolation space for several days.

"At this time their conditions have improved, and they were proven to not suffer the influenza illness of A H1N1 or the Mexican type," said Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari, in the press conference, on Saturday (9/5) in Jakarta. To anticipate the threat of the influenza pandemic (A H1N1), the government carried out the pandemic preparedness plan comprehensively, and has carried twice out the simulation on a complete scale. The pandemic preparedness simulation was carried out in Jembrana, Bali, in April 2008 and in Makassar, South Sulawesi, in April 2009.

"We continued to guard against the spreading of the virus to Indonesia," she said. "The medicine supplies of Tamiflu has sufficed and these distributions arrived at community health centres," said Siti Fadilah.

Preparedness facing the influenza pandemic in the official health circle of the health also was carried out by reminding the handling procedure of the patient was expected by influenza like the procedure to the patient who it was suspected was infected by the bird flu virus (H5N1).  According to Director General of Disease Handling and Environmental Sanitation Department of the Tjandra Yoga Aditama Health, Badan Health of the World (WHO) made a commitment to contribute 2.5 million capsules Tamiflu or Oseltamivir to Indonesia.  Eventually, the distribution of the antiviral medicine will be given priority to to areas that had the high risk infection for the bird flu virus.

Flu Riba=Loan Shark flu
Flu Babi=Pigs Flu (Swine Flu)
 
The danger of ”Flu Loan Shark”
 
on Friday, May 08 2009 By: Donny Irawan
In the view of Islam the law from Usury was forbidden, likewise the law about the pig, also clear forbidden! So, usury and the pig were same from the side of the law syara him, because firmly was stated about keharaman him in Alquran. The difference is, Usury was related to the action, whereas the pig was related to the object.
 
The rules ushul fiqih stated, the origin law of each action was tied with the law syara. Whereas the origin law from the object able to, while not having the proposition that prohibited him. Lately the world community was stirred up by the illness that was resulted in by the pig animal that was known with pig flu.
 
Whether that was meant with pig flu? Pig flu was the group from the influenza virus that could cause flu to the pig. Where the virus that caused the plague of flu to this humankind, to come from strain the influenza virus of A type H1N1. Genetically this virus was also found as part of the human flu, or also bird flu. The case of flu was to humankind found in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Various busy sides make an effort handled terjangkit him this pig flu.
 
That was done in view of the fact that the impact of the illness, will result in the most serious condition that is spreading to the fellow humankind and finally caused the death. But, the cause virus of pig flu in the tropical area like in Indonesia was low. However, Kementrian Kesehatan continue to did monitoring on the case of this incident, melalu surveilans the health. 15 hospitals more than one Indonesia was indicated by the government through the Department of the Health, to report the case of the incident in their respective territory.
 
So, serious efforts of various sides that were done to prevent the spread of this pig flu. How with ”loan shark flu"? The impact of the illness ”flu loan shark" was not dangerous? He replied, very dangerous! Moreover, more dangerous than only a ”pigs flu"! How could it not? Globally was able to be mentioned, the definition of usury was ”tambahan that was met in the contract that came from one of the sides, good from the aspect of (the receipt) money, material/the thing, and or time, without having efforts from the side that accepted this addition. This definition, apparently could include all the kinds and the form of usury, good available
 
This definition, apparently could include all the kinds and the form of usury, both available in the period jahiliyah (usury fadhal, nasi’ah, Al Qardh), and available usury in the period now, like the bank's usury that included the flower from the loan of credit, fixed deposit investment, the trade in the share and the other valuable letter, or trade usury in the thing and money.
 
For this last usury, for example many and could develop in each period. Was based on this definition, although the name and his kind were different, but usury could include many sorts that apparently exceeded 73 sorts according to information hadits Rasulullah SAW. Rasulullah SAW through the sight ghaib that leant to the revelation, learned sometime in the future Moslems will permit usury on the basis of the trade (the business). More than that, he was informed, usury in the period that will come (for example modern et cetera) will cover various activities of the life field of economics and finance that finally had involved all Muslims.
 
The Prophets decree saw ”Riba that had 73 sorts. Whereas (the sin) that was lightest (from these usury sorts) was like someone that married (menzinai) his mother personally... ” (HR Ibnu Majah and Al Justice, from Ibnu Mas’ud, with sanad that shahih). Also the Prophets decree of SAW ”Sungguh will come to humankind of a period (when) not a single among them that will not eat (the wealth) usury. Anyone that (tried) did not eat him, he continued to be affected by dust (usury) -nya” (HR Ibnu Majah and Sunan Abu Dawud, from Hurairah Ash).
 
Please imagined, the impact of this usury? The sin that most ”ringan”, was the simile ”menzinai” his mother personally! For humankind that berakal healthy and thoughtful clear, certainly the threat for the perpetrators of usury that was said by Rasulullah SAW the above, did not play!
 
Pig flu of only one kind, but flu ”riba” had 73 sorts! Not kah this more the danger from only a ”flu babi”. Usury flu, will result in ”kematian” millions of humankind. The global economic crisis that now happens, was real proof from usury flu that was ”virus” from the system of capitalist economics, that currently is applied almost dibelahan any earth. To cure ”flu riba” this, was with throw away ”virus’ him. This virus simply the system of capitalist economics that currently mencekram the economy of the world, including Indonesia. And this virus only could ”dilawan” with the System of Ekonomi Islam that was applied by the country. Wallohu a’lam bish-showaab! **

Chan Calls for Nations to Be on the Alert
May 9, 2009
http://kesehatan.kompas.com/re...
Jakarta:  At this time it is hoped that all the countries in the world hoped are on alert for the arrival of the influenza pandemic.  This means that preparedness plans must continue, the production capacity of vaccines must be increased, and stock of the production of antiviral medicines must be increased.  As reported by Director General of the World Health Organization Dr. Margaret Chan in her address in the special meeting agenda to ASEAN Health Ministers in Bangkok, on Friday (8/5).  Dr. Chan said that this is an uncertain time for nations throughout the world .  Something big also must be experienced by the health ministers.  Only clear truth that could be said about influenza viruses was that the behaviour of the viruses could not be predicted.

"At this time no one can say how they are evolving," said Dr. Chan.  

Therefore, said Dr. Chan, lest the upper monitor H5N1 was freed apart from being on the alert facing H1N1. This virus has became endemic in livestock breeding in several territories.  We do not yet know how H5N1 will behave.  H5N1, according to Dr. Chan, has  conditioned our attitude so that it will seem like a pandemic with a high death rate. This kind of illness could not be of course be avoided and will become the pandemic.

"The decision to state this is a pandemic was on my hands.  I am convinced that I will make a decision that is responsible for the sake of all of us," said Dr. Chan at the end of her speech.

Indonesia Proposed That WHO Revised The Status Parameter Pandemic

In determining the status of the pandemic preferably not only be based on transmissibillity (the spread between humankind) but also must put consideration of the clinical determinant (morbidity and mortality) as well as the determinant of virology/the gene sequencing (high or low pathogenic).

The Indonesian proposal was agreed to as one of the clauses in Joint Ministerial Statement ASEAN +3 Ministers Special Meeting on influenza of A H1N1 in Bangkok Thailan on May 7-8 2009.

Another toggletext translation of last three paragraphs.
This is what I received when I put the last three paragraphs into toggletext:
The development of this poultry farm, continued Isa, is hoped to be able to supply the requirement for the eggs that will be used as the research medium.  According to him, the virus H5N1 that will eventually be engineered will be injected into the chicken egg to be developed into the product of the bird flu vaccine. The production of this bird flu vaccine will be used to fullly satisfy the requirements in the country.  The reason is that if it is used in this country, it does not need a licence from the World Health Organization (WHO).  A licence from WHO is only needed if the bird flu vaccine was marketed overseas. However, if it is only marketed in this country, the licence is necessary from the Pengawas Bodies of Medicine and Food.

Government Plans Facilities to Produce New Flu Vaccines
http://www.thejakartaglobe.com...
May 12, 2009
The Ministry of Health said on Monday it would build research facilities designed to eventually produce a single human vaccine for both the H1N1 swine flu virus and the avian flu virus, amid fears that swine flu could do more damage in Indonesia than bird flu because of its proven transmission rate among humans.  The announcement came as the World Health Organization reported that there were 4,694 confirmed cases of H1N1, also known as Influenza A, in 30 countries across the globe, resulting in 48 deaths.

"The ministry is getting ready to build research facilities that will eventually mass produce the vaccines for bird flu and H1N1 influenza," said Tjandra Yoga Aditama, the ministry's Director General of Communicable Diseases.

The planned facility marks Indonesia's first attempt at making its own human vaccine for bird flu and swine flu. Tjandra said a single vaccine should work against both viruses because they both show the same sensitivity to vaccines. Indonesia has already produced a flu vaccine for poultry.  Tjandra said a vaccine was needed to minimize reliance on the antiviral drug Oseltamivir, widely known as Tamiflu, which he said began to lose its effectiveness after 48 hours.  He said facilities would also be built at Airlangga University in Surabaya, East Java, and at the Bandung offices of state pharmaceutical firm PT Biofarma.

Although the country has yet to confirm a single case of the H1N1 virus, Tjandra said the production of a vaccine was a precautionary measure against a possible global flu pandemic.  Work on the Surabaya facility is nearly finished, while construction of the facility in Bandung will start this week, Tjandra said. He could not confirm when they would start making a vaccine.  Health Minister Siti Fadillah Supari said 100 hospitals and all Community Health Centers across the country were ready to respond to swine flu, adding that 25 of 28 health centers at ports were now able to detect the H1N1 virus.

The Australian media estimated the horses were infected from flu from Japanese horses that visited Sydney.  This was based on a report from a laboratory in Hissar, Haryana, in North India concerning the death of the horse resulting from a flu attack that first happened in January in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. To prevent this illness being spread in the area, the Gujarat government banned buying and selling horses in the state. In Rajasthan, 25 horses were killed in a horse exhibition in the Jodhpur area, according to this report.  

Equine flu is caused by the Influenza A virus that is endemic in Kuda.  This virus could move to other kinds of animal, and until yesterday it was not yet known spread to humans.  Equine influenza is really marked with the height of the spread between horses and has a relatively short incubation period, namely one to five days.  The horse that was attacked by this flu could develop signs of fever and coughing with nasal mucus.

The Livestock Head Keswan Shofwan admitted that Tanggamus entered the category of the red line, meaning that the spreading of the bird flu virus still could not be handled, although the Rapid Result Team or PDSR carried out various efforts from the extermination with the burning and the burial of the animal that were infected, to eliminating the poultry around the location, and the vaccination and spraying of the liquid disinfectant.  In the meantime in Liwa, Head of Lampung Animal Health Sector of Disnakkeswan, Barat Murco Cahyo Adi, said that apart from the survey and spraying, his personnel with the Team of the Penyidikan Hall and the Veterinary Testing (BPPV) Regional III Banda Lampung, also took samples of pig blood in Pekon Marang, Pesisir Selatan, to be checked.  However, results were not yet known because testing was in process in BPPV.   Meanwhile, his personnel also built and investigated especially the cleanliness of the pig breeders' environment in order to anticipate the H1N1 virus attack. From results of this survey, his office was convinced in Undelayer the cause was pig flu.

''I do not want to comment to the first question, if you can not get new Tamiflu until July,'' he said.

Haryono disclosed that Dinkes distributed Tamiflu to 36 health centers.  On average each health center received an individual quota of 100 tablets, unless a health clinic was in the District Baureno and Kedungadem, the City and Ngraho. who each will receive 300 tablets Tamiflu, because, in Baureno and Kedungadem there have never been any suspected bird flu cases in cattle, while in 23 other districts in Bojonegoro, there has  never ben a bird flu outbreak. Tamiflu is used for patients other than bird flu (H5N1), it also can be used for patients swine flu (H1N1).
