    Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR)Seventh H5N1 case in Bangladesh

    "The seventh case of Influenza A (H5N1) has been confirmed from one of our surveillance sites. Diagnosis was made on the basis of Real time RT-PCR.
    This was a 1 year 11 months old male child from Chauddogram, Comilla. He was admitted to Comilla Medical College Hospital, later transferred to Dhaka Shishu Hospital and then to a private clinic. He died on 18th February, 2013. This is the first death case of H5N1 in Bangladesh. As this child had no typical features of Influenza Like Illness (ILI), throat and nasal samples were sent for reconfirmation to CDC Atlanta, USA (WHO reference laboratory) and received confirmation on 6th April, 2013.
    Detailed outbreak investigation was conducted. There was strong epidemiological link with backyard poultry deaths. No other case was found among contacts during the investigation."

      RE: Chauddagram Upazila (subdistrict), of Comilla District in the (south eastern) Division of Chittagong, Bangladesh (100km south east of Dhaka). It's bounded by Burchiganj and Tripura on the north, Laksham and Chauddagram on the south, and Barura on the west. Major rivers passing through Comilla include Gumti and Little Feni.
