    "Avian flu was renamed" and was inadvertently hurt the interests of those

    Recently, Guangdong Tiannong Food Co. CEO Zhang Ying said, "I have the courage to make difficult Vice Premier Wang would like to send out for help," the message said, because people infected with H7N9 in Guangdong repeatedly reported events that lead consumers to panic, talk about chicken discoloration, chickens volume and price down! In fact, H7N9 is not only poultry, people, other animals also detected H7N9, but as people infected with H7N9 "bird flu", H7N9 naming is a problem, unjust, H7N9 scientific name for it should be "A-type influenza the virus. " She hoped that the experts give H7N9 renamed.
      
    Objectively speaking, public epidemic, with the name of the disease has its positive significance. Glance, can improve public alert for epidemic propagation path. For example, a few years ago, there is something called "mad cow" epidemic spread in the United States and Europe, once verified, the source of infection of the disease is British beef imports from all countries. For this case, the world stopped beef imports during that time from the UK, the epidemic was brought under control quickly, after which Western residents quickly restored the habit of eating beef.
      
    However, if a particular virus, can not be fully confirmed originated in an animal, especially a public often eat animals, we should not have the name of the disease. When H7N9 was named as "bird flu", the entire country, from North to South, from East to West, all "talk about birds pale." Poultry industry, by the blow. Many poultry breeders, in "a cut is not" bankrupt after, but also no reason to incur infamy countless people met poultry households are at arm's length.
      
    About avian influenza renamed, we can learn from the World Health Organization as "swine flu" was renamed. April 30, 2009, the World Health Organization declared no longer use the "swine flu," the term refers to the current outbreak, and start using the "A (H1N1) influenza," the word. Since then, the pigs were freed and liberated from sin pathogens become innocent victims groups. By contrast, in the seven or eight hours after the H7N9 virus appeared in order to "chicken" as the representative of poultry has been saddled with infamy, including the entire poultry industry.
      
    Under the Information Society, "the new term" any invention of a public event, you need to take care of the interests of more people. Relevant government departments and academic research institutions, not only to each term, and the name was realistic, but also to take into account the social reality, the impact of the related industrial chain. Ancient China has the name "named school." Some of them pay attention to the unity of the five elements, text, meaning, structure, form and other requirements, although there is superstition, but in fact, "named after learning" in contemporary society should also become a science. At least, we have some names from the time, and will not appear damaged phenomena implicated in related industries.

    H7N9 "bird-human transmission," there is no evidence, why is called "bird" flu

Triangle Town, Zhongshan South lead responsible breeder Guo Ming Ming cited submitted a "proposal flu issues," "scientific treatment of human infection," birds, experts hope to guide the rational, scientific judgment, in order to protect the province's poultry industry healthy, sustainable development .
      
    Guo cited Ming said, yet there is evidence that H7N9 virus is caused by poultry, so people infected "H7N9 bird flu," the reference unscientific. And some experts, the media release prevention of avian flu to "stay away from live poultry markets," "Do not touch live poultry" and other terms, the objective caused considerable degree of "poultry consumption" panic. Left the farmers market sales, breeders, there is no way out, this will cause irreparable damage the poultry industry and the general practitioners.
      
    In the appeal to rational treatment from the concept, while Guo Ming also suggested authorities cited by strengthening field management, improve poultry enterprises to enter and exit mechanism, the immune system, such as the reform of the mandatory way to protect the healthy development of the industry.
      
    Multi-voice attracted the attention of concerned. Reporter from the Guangdong Provincial Health and Family Planning Commission official website to see, H7N9 is no longer the latest cases notified otherwise specified history of exposure to live poultry patients, even the "no live poultry exposure history" and other words also disappear from the briefing.

      Network in China: Agricultural losses caused by "bird" flu naming dispute

      February 4, 2014 21:50:08 Source: Xinhua

      Xinhua Guangzhou February 4 Nisshin media (Reporter Xiao Sisi) Recently, the poultry industry enterprises in Guangdong Province, Guangdong Provincial Government jointly wrote a letter to the demands of the letter, called for "H7N9 bird flu , "saying be renamed, remove the" bird flu " The words, to avoid further damage to the poultry industry.

      In the second session of the Second Session of the Guangdong Provincial People's Congress held on January 19, the Guangdong Provincial People's Congress, the Secretary of Agriculture Qingyuan Zhang Qiusheng appeal, the Guangdong provincial government should "H7N9 bird flu," the name was changed to "H7N9 Influenza . "

      Currently, there is not enough evidence to prove that "the virus is transmitted to humans through direct poultry", but a large number of cases of live bird markets exposure history is hard to distance themselves from letting poultry stakeholders. "Bird" flu naming dispute sometimes hard to be determined.

      Agriculture Department: hope H7N9 and poultry industry "decoupling"

      Guangdong Province bird flu expert group BI Ying Zuo, the director of the Guangdong Provincial Academy of Agricultural Sciences Veterinary 魏文康, who said that, as there is still no evidence directly from birds to humans H7N9, H7N9 infection among humans did. Shall the World Health Organization influenza virus nomenclature, the "H7N9 bird flu" was renamed "Influenza A H7N9 influenza."

      It is understood that, in 2013, a total of 1,630,200 copies of sampling and monitoring of poultry or environmental samples, and 88 samples were positive for H7N9 influenza etiology cumulative detection, mainly from the 26 live poultry operations field points 10 provinces and cities such as Shanghai. This year, a total of 33,400 samples monitoring, etiology eight positive samples detected in Guangdong, Fujian, Guangxi and Zhejiang provinces 5 4 live poultry markets.

      However, Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture veterinary Zhang Zhongqiu said, it is not entirely clear pathways and mechanisms of H7N9 virus, "Until now, still not sure what kind of animal-human transmission, there is not enough evidence to prove that 'the virus is through poultry directly transmitted to humans'. "

      "Virus not to change the name was not given." Bi Ying Zuo said that in 2009 the H1N1 virus, initially mistaken as "swine flu", causing heavy losses to the swine industry worldwide, and later in the parties suggested, WHO will eventually it was renamed "H1N1 flu", the pork industry and the community before becoming stable.

      Health sector: the majority of cases there is a history of exposure to live poultry market

      The industry believes that, if continued to be named as the "bird" flu, first, to see whether the source of the virus in poultry, the second is to see whether the route of transmission is spread from poultry to humans.

      According to the official website of the National Health and Family Planning Commission published on 17 January recent human infection with H7N9 bird flu prevention and control work mentioned in the briefing, "experts judged that since the transmission of the virus from the birds to humans is still."

      Disease Prevention and Control Center of Guangdong Province, chief expert, director of the Institute of Epidemiology Jianfeng introduction: "So far, our epidemiological survey found that people infected with H7N9, Guangdong Province, bird flu, there is a history of exposure to live poultry markets accounting for nearly 80% more than 90%, while the data nationwide is about 70% if the country in different populations are the same phenomenon, what is the problem? "

      Jianfeng introduction, based on epidemiological investigation is active route provided when the patient awake, before including the onset to what place, come into contact with anything, eat anything, and so the investigation, based on a detailed epidemiological survey. "In addition, we have a case-control study, researchers found that the incidence of live bird markets exposed to several factors have led to much higher than other times of the reasons these studies are based on a rigorous approach. Pointed confirmed cases in Guangdong The live bird markets, we go check found that HIV-positive sample rate environment market is very high. "

      Strengthening the management of live poultry markets more urgent than renamed

      Jianfeng introduction, disease control and agricultural sectors for the detection of the virus has a clear division of labor. "We and the agricultural sector boundaries is that we do not detect animals, and environmental testing market has been done by us, including cages, market sewage, etc., are routine monitoring."

      Zhang Zhongqiu in the Ministry of Agriculture on the 29th held a press briefing pointed out that the monitoring results, the current poultry farms have not detected H7N9 influenza virus.

      Chinese Academy of Engineering, Zhong Nanshan, director of the Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Diseases think, more and more evidence that, where there are chickens trade, transit places most prone to cross-infection. Monitoring information from the agricultural sector shows that all breeding farms in Guangdong Province have not detected H7N9 bird flu virus, experts speculate that the virus is mainly spread and diffusion through the course of the transaction.

      Jianfeng said: "In the live animal markets, whether chicken stalls or geese or ducks files files are mixed together, increasing the chances of recombinant virus mutation so we usually say is 'live bird markets' exposure to trading market. an important part. "

      Therefore, many experts believe that its controversial "bird" flu is renamed, it is better to strengthen the management of live poultry market norms.

But in fact, the relevant departments or the "human infection with H7N9 influenza" named "people infected with H7N9 bird flu," and insisted that the incidence of reports of "people infected with H7N9 bird flu," the scientific name announced, the move to domestic poultry industry caused huge losses.

        The letter also wrote that this situation makes the poultry industry into a "desperate": farming-related shares A-share market and the "bird" was staged market slump. 2013 poultry industry economic losses of more than 100 billion yuan, only the first half of 2013 aquaculture farm households direct economic losses exceed 60 billion yuan, while the January 2014 loss of nearly 20 billion yuan. Many enterprises are facing shutdown, collapse.

Li Jinghui finally said, "does not rule out taking legal measures to safeguard the legitimate interests of the industry," suggesting that if you do not change its name, does not rule out prosecution of the State Planning Commission guard.

          H7N9 renamed deputies proposed WHO recommends to retain the formerly

          NPC deputy from Guangdong Sui love submitted to the NPC before a closing advice that will "H 7N 9 avian flu " was renamed " Influenza A H7N9 influenza ," and attach the signature of 80 poultry companies . Recently, the World Health Organization to accept the South have interviewed responded : "Before consensus in the international experts and a number of related sectors , still retain the virus is the official name ." Media , if necessary , can be "H7N9" or "H7N9 virus " and so referred .

          Suggested "H7N9 bird flu " was renamed

          The forthcoming opening of the NPC and CPPCC , NPC deputy and chairman of Zhaoqing Dahuanong biopharmaceutical company , General Manager Sui Love , as early as January 25 closing on a proposal submitted to the NPC , and the title dubbed urgent recommendations , you want to change . " H7N9 bird flu "virus name , save the livestock industry .

          Sui Love cited three major reasons . She believes , "H7N9 bird flu " virus named unscientific , named insufficient basis. H7N9 virus in nature itself there does not exist only in poultry body, many mammals have found . Specific sources and propagation mechanism is still not far H7N9 Mingqie recommended departments start "H7N9 bird flu " virus name the work immediately. The "H7N9 bird flu " virus name the "Influenza A H7N9 flu " virus. In accordance with the relevant provisions of the relevant departments will reply on behalf of three months.

          To " bird" has voice

          In fact, now more controversial is the " bird" should not appear in the name . Chen瑞爱提to 1980 according to the World Health Organization (WHO) influenza virus naming rules , norms influenza virus named " model / host / isolated location / laboratory strains isolated serial / separation time / HnNn", and therefore should not be added " fowl " word .

          In January this year , the Ministry of Agriculture veterinary Secretary Zhang Zhongqiu when answering reporters' questions raised last April WHO, OIE, FAO and other international organizations, the three experts "H7N9 bird flu ," the name of consultation , the proposed media use "H7N9 flu" or name "H7N9 virus" .

          In this year's two sessions , Guangdong Province , the Guangdong Provincial People's Congress , Zhang Q S. Qingyuan had called the Secretary of Agriculture , the Guangdong provincial government should "H7N9 bird flu ," the name was changed to "H7N9 influenza ."

          WHO is questionable

          Recently, the Southern reporter contacted the World Health Organization has been authoritative response.

          For some Chinese poultry industry on behalf of a joint application to modify the official name of the H 7N 9 's , WH O Media Contact Glenn T hom as respond to reporters the South, they already know there is some discussion now renamed requirements , while WHO also be questionable, but there has not been the result . "Before the consensus of international experts and some related sectors , still retains the current official name of this virus ."

          PK view

          Agricultural experts : not sure what kind of animal is transmitted to humans

          South China Agricultural University, Chief Expert of Animal Science , bird flu expert group was the first to propose Bi Ying Zuo To H 7N 9 " name" person. Recently, Bi Ying Zuo think the National Influenza Reference Laboratory testing showed that people infected with sporadic , point hair, sporadic , did not occur efficiently from human to human spread . And isolated from poultry to the H7N9 flu virus in poultry is a low pathogenic or non-pathogenic influenza virus.

          National Avian Influenza Reference Laboratory studies also showed that avian viruses isolated from humans and the virus is different, not sure what kind of animal is transmitted to humans , there is not enough evidence to prove that " the virus is transmitted to humans through direct poultry ." Administrations named " H 7N 9 people infected with bird flu ," too hasty.

          Health experts : the vast majority of cases have a history of exposure to live poultry market

          For some experts noted " there is no direct evidence that H7N9 virus directly from birds to people," epidemiologist who asked not to be named, said recently : " If you wait until there is evidence of iron nails , to prevent it come too late . " the experts believe that from the current case , the vast majority of cases have a history of exposure to poultry .
          With the Guangdong Provincial Disease Prevention and Control Center chief expert Jianfeng told Xinhua News Agency said in an interview that as of now , the Guangdong Provincial People infected with H7N9 bird flu in live bird markets have a history of over 80% exposure to nearly 90% .

          "This is from the H1N1 ' swine flu ' to ' H1N1 flu ' different ." The expert said that the current H7N9 has not been the same as H1N1 , the phenomenon of sustained human to human transmission , transmission still birds to humans , so his opinion, if the virus is not mutation , WHO does not propose to amend the official name of the virus in the short term .

          Traceability

          Social media can be referred to as the "H7N9 virus ."

          Last year on April 16 , WHO official website released a report entitled " Influenza A H7N9 virus normative term " (Standardization of the InfluenzaA (H7N9) Virus Term inology) description ( hereinafter described ) , for H 7N 9 in various occasions using the name of the specification . Explained that this was from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and WHO experts together to discuss naming consensus opinion .

          According to instructions , the core of the term " avian influenza H7N9 viruses " (avian influenzaA (H 7N 9) virus) will be used in scientific or technical and other reports. However, this term under certain circumstances there can be some changes, such as call : "People infected with H 7N 9 avian flu virus", "chicken infected with H7N9 avian influenza virus " or " pig infected with avian influenza virus H 7N 9 " ( if pigs found ) .

          WHO Media Contact Glenn Thom as pointed out , it is worth noting that described in the third point mentioned in the media use , especially in the similar kind of social media on twitter would prefer to use words as short as possible , so there is a need , you can use something like "H7N9", "H7N9 virus " is used as an alternative.
