  • Bird flu virus found in Mazowsze, Poland - Epidemic Threatens

    Bird flu virus found in Mazowsze, epidemic threatens 3rd December 2007



    On Saturday morning sanitary services found the H5N1 (bird flu) virus that can infect humans in turkey farms in the Mazowsze province.

    One of the farms in question was just around 100km from Warsaw. One leading meat company received a consignment of 5,500 birds, of which around 8% were dead on arrival or in a bad state. Out of these at least three were confirmed as carrying the virus. "We have an economic, not a health problem. It has not yet been the case that a bird flu virus infected a person in Europe," said Jan Bondar, spokesman for the State Sanitary Inspectorate. Steps have been taken to counter the danger: birds from infected farms have been slaughtered, farm workers quarantined, roads around the infected area are closed, and the sanitary services are issuing warnings against touching birds and eating raw poultry or eggs. However, at least 300kg of meat, possibly infected with the virus, has made its way to retail shops but on the pretext of preventing a panic the Sanitary Inspector is refusing to disclose which ones.

      "However, at least 300kg of meat, possibly infected with the virus, has made its way to retail shops but
      on the pretext of preventing a panic
      the Sanitary Inspector is refusing to disclose which ones."

      Maybe if the "Sanitary Inspector" buying his meat meal at the retail shops where are buying the rest of the citizens, he will fast undisclosed the names of the shops.

      How convenient, the S.I. already know the names, but the "others" have not this privilege.

      Because of the thinking that the infected meat can already be eaten if cooked, and the low lewel of infection possibility when manipulated, it's better to leave the citizen in a dark about, think the inspector probably.

      Maybe it is necessary to change the laws in a way that nobody can retain vital health information for the citizens private health decisions in the name of "no panic".
