    ISTANBUL, Feb 23 (KUNA) -- Two children of one family are undergoing bird flu medical tests after suffering fever and clear symptoms of the fatal disease.

    The two children were admitted to the central hospital of Burdor province in southern Turkey, and were placed under intensive observation, NTV network quoted medical sources as saying Friday.

    Blood samples were taken from the two suspected cases and the results of the tests will be announced within 24 hours, the sources added.

    Feb 23, 2007

    The governor of Burdur orders samples taken from a number of chickens that had died to be tested.

    Two children from the southern Turkish province of Burdur were hospitalised Friday after possibly contracting avian flu.

    The parents of the children, from the Aglasun district of Burdur took their one year old baby to a health centre after the child developed a high fever and told the doctor that their two children had eaten eggs from three chicken they had in their backyard.

      Fear of BF in Burdur
      Esin and Dogan A. from Burdur's Aglasun region, took their 1 yr old daughter Gulay to a local health clinic after she came down with high fever and runny nose after 3 of their chickens died.

      After initial treatment, little Gulay was taken to Burdur State Hospital with the diagnosis of severe flu.

      The little girl is in the infectious diseases ward and has eaten the eggs from the dead chickens. The three chickens have been snet to a lab in Bornova, Izmir, for testing.

      Burdur Mayor said that the family is being kept in the hospital as a precaution, and that there is no 'there is bird flu/there is no bird flu' discussion yet, and no needd to panic, until tomorrow when the test results come in.

      (There have been mass bird deaths around Burdur Lake in the oast few weeks, but the samples from the birds have turned out to be - for BF - zkurmus)

      Burdur’da kuş gribi kuşkusu
      23 Şubat 2007
      Sadun KILIÇ, (DHA)
      Burdur’un Ağlasun İlçesi’nde oturan Esin ve Doğan A. çifti, 3 tavuklarının ölmesinin ardından yüksek ateş ve burun akıntısı tespit edilen 1 yaşındaki kızları Gülay A.’yı, sağlık ocağına götürdü.

      İlk müdahalenin ardından ağır gribal enfeksiyon görülen minik Gülay, ’Kuş gribi olabilir’ şüphesiyle Burdur Devlet Hastanesi’ne sevk edildi. Hastanenin intaniye servisinde tedaviye alınan minik kızın, ölen tavukların yumurtalarından yediği belirtildi. Ölen 3 tavuk ise inceleme yapılmak üzere İzmir Bornova’daki tahlil laboratuvarlarına gönderildi.

      Burdur Valisi Rasih Özbek, ailenin tedbir amaçlı hastanede tutulduğunu belirterek, "Kuş gribi var, ya da kuş gribi yok demek doğru olmaz. Şu an için panik yapacak bir durum yok. Yarın çıkacak tahlil sonuçlarına bakılacak" diye konuştu.
