    If the government is not wise to anticipate, duck species in Indonesia will be lost.

    JAKARTA - The case of the spread of H5N1 clade 2.3.2 virus that attacks the ducks can not be fully resolved by the government.

    However, this time, the virus has invaded the quail. 2.3.2 viral infection in quail was found when researchers from the University of Airlangga (Airlangga University) examined quail and ducks that died in the area of ​​Malang, Monday (18/2) night.

    Researchers Chief Strategy Research Laboratory and Bio Security Level (BSL) -3 Universitas Airlangga CA Nidom to SH, Tuesday (19/2) said, clade 2.3.2 viruses that attack the exact same quail with duck attack. "Last night (Monday night-red), a virus that has infected quail," he said.

    From the results, the virus is similar to the bird flu virus in Vietnam, not Guangdong, China. From the phylogenetic analysis and homology, similarities virus in Indonesia and Vietnam almost from 99.2 to 99.9 percent. When done testing, this virus could kill mice.

    Nidom explained, 2.3.2 virus in infected ducks had a higher rate than the bird flu virus that attacks the clade 2.1.3 in chickens.

    The speed of the bird flu virus infections in ducks clade 2.3.2 by 80 percent within 24 hours. The bird flu virus that attacks chickens, the infection rate of 10 percent within 24 hours.

    Nidom worried about what is happening today is a model of the spread of the virus clade 2.3.2. If the government is not wise to anticipate, duck species in Indonesia will be lost. On the other hand, more and more variants of bird flu virus in Indonesia. "The risk in humans has a chance for the coalition," he said.

    Meanwhile, researchers at the National Research and Development of the Ministry of Agriculture (Ministry of Agriculture Research and Development) Indi Damayanti found, completion of cases of bird flu in ducks do by way of depopulation or culling.

    From his research, ducks turned out to have its own antibodies to attack the virus escaped. The study found that ducks infected animal within six days. However, on the seventh day cured duck.

    On the 14th day, seeding the virus goes away by itself. "So, at this duck grows its own antibodies. There is a dead one to heal itself. We check, had been in contact with ducks, but later the virus is completely gone. So for ducks how to handle not depopulation, "he said.

    Infections in quail are always a concern due to the presence of human-like receptors as well as avian ones.
