  • DPHSS: "Likely Palau Is Experiencing an Outbreak of Influenza A"

    Guam - Based on available laboratory test results, it is likely that Palau is experiencing an outbreak among residents due to an influenza A virus. Additional testing to determine the characterization of the influenza virus circulating in Palau will be done at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

    According to the latest report, there is no evidence to suggest that any illness on Palau among humans or chickens has been the result of an avian influenza subtype.

    Palau may be experiencing a seasonal influenza outbreak, most likely caused by influenza A (H3N2), and the recently reported mass chicken deaths are probably unrelated. All farm workers who were ill are now healthy, and no more chickens have died in Palau.
