    The viral sequences from two of the three recent fatalities in Egypt were released at Genbank today, and there are some interesting changes in the H5N1 virus that should cause increased concern and heightened awareness:

    I don't usually post about bird die offs, but I'll make an exception as this case is very suspicious because of the location, and the fact that these are migratory birds, very sad too...

    I hope so too, but you all will have to stand in line behind my contact at the Dept of Health. They want me to share also. I am serious. I think they should go along with me. Then I won't have to keep after them, and getting the nurses union involved. Let's all go...

    More deaths in Indonesia, all under age 40. This twenty something woman has not even been diagnosed yet, and she's dead already as is the other woman admitted a few days ago. Most likely, this younger woman is a positive case.

    The situation in Indonesia is somewhat alarming. Translators on the flu blogs are working very hard to try and clarify what is happening over there. We are hearing about more clusters of patients, some of whom have died with s/s of avian flu before test results came back if indeed testing was done at all. Many people being treated with Tamiflu. Here are some comments from croftsblog followed by comments from Avian Flu Diary, and then some news from other parts of the world where avian flu has made an appearance. It is hard to ignore all of these reports. People do, of course, but how much longer can you pretend that this is not going to be our problem?

    Anyone else want to go? The author, John Barry, of "The Great Influenza" fame, is going to be there!!! I'm such a groupie when it comes to this stuff. I admit it, I want his autograph! I sure hope that I can go to this, so many interesting people there. Just look at the list of speakers!!

    Indigo....you sound just like me! I'd LOVE to be able to see this conference. But finances and work/ family prevent it. Please go and give us as much info as possible when you get back.

    Update from Dr. Niman (in touch with NAMRU 3? For those of you, who don't know, NAMRU 3 is a US Naval Lab that has been analyzing H5N1 specimens for the Egyptians as has NAMRU 2 in Indonesia. They have been a model for transparency unlike Weybridge, WHO, CDC, all of which have been just the opposite and are STILL witholding viral sequences)
