Human bird flu cases - March 25, 2011 Update
The first WHO confirmed case in 2011 in Bangladesh. see post #216 and http://www.who.int/csr/don/2011_03_16/en/index.html
Another human H5N1 case has been reported in Bangladesh (see post #218) but this case has not yet been officially confirmed by WHO. So the overly alarmist implications of an H5N1 epidemic as implied by Recombinomics quote in post #220 are premature to say the least.
Of more concern are three recent human cases of H5N1 in Indonesia not yet reported in this thread.
A 2 year old male from Depok, West Java, was infected with H5N1 in early February and died. http://www.who.int/csr/don/2011_03_14/en/index.html
A 31 year old woman, from Bekasi, West Java, was infected with H5N1 in late February and died on March 1, 2011 http://www.who.int/csr/don/2011_03_14/en/index.html
As reported today, the two year old daughter of number 2 above (also from Bekasi), contracted H5N1 within one day of her mother's death. So this is now a family cluster. The young girl apparently recovered. http://www.who.int/csr/don/2011_03_25/en/index.html
