                Humans not affected in Amethi: Central health team

                TNN | Mar 18, 2015, 01.40 AM IST

                SHUKLA BAZAR (AMETHI): The bird flu outbreak in Amethi has not spread to humans so far, concluded the Central rapid response team of the health ministry here on Tuesday. "The avian flu virus is limited to birds and has not affected any humans," said Dr Desh Deepak who spoke on behalf of the three member team headed by additional director Dr C S Agarwal.

                The team reached Amethi within 24 hours of the UP government declaring avian flu alert on Saturday. "Since avian flu is a new problem, the team came down to roll out the contingency plan," said another team member Dr Shaukat Kamaal. On Monday night, the team had learnt that some children had taken ill soon after culling began in the district.

                Though local health officials dismissed any such news and said the children were not cases of even suspected avian flu, the health team went in for a physical verification. Outside one such home, Seema Begum, mother of the two children believed to be unwell said, "My sons are in school for exam. They are fine." Mohammad Arif, parent of another child, said, "There appears to be some confusion."

                Later, talking to the press, Central team members admitted that surveillance of the homes was a challenge considering low literacy levels and visible resentment over loss of poultry in the affected hamlets...
