    Indian poultry becoming resistant to bird flu virus?

    Hyderabad: Have the birds in India, particularly poultry, adapted to the deadly avian flu virus? Recent trends in the outbreak of bird flu in different parts of the country have led experts to believe that the H5N1 virus may not pose much danger to human or veterinary health any more.

    "There could be a possibility that poultry birds might run only sub-clinical infections, not warranting culling," said Dr Niyaz Ahmed, veterinary expert and senior director at the International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh, and research professor at the University of Hyderabad. "We do not see any major issue as spurts in bird flu have become a routine affair. If sub-clinical infections mean that poultry birds would evolve resistance, this is a huge success for the industry," he added.
    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
