China Witnesses Two Human Cases of Bird Flu

A state media report has confirmed two human cases of bird flu in the southwestern city of Guiyang on Sunday. Both the victims are reported to be in a critical state.

"No epidemiological connections have been found between the two cases", said Via Xinhua, the ministry, while confirming the same.

It has been explained that the 21-year-old woman was indentified with the H5N1 bird flu virus after she developed symptoms on February 2 while the 31-year-old man got ill on February 3. It has been added that they were not in touch with birds before they started showing the symptoms.

Moreover, all those who were in touch with them are being medically examined, though no concern has been signaled yet in them. China being among the nations having world's biggest poultry population has always been under threat of such world's biggest poultry population.

The virus is known to spread from birds to humans through direct contact, but there are potential chances that it would soon mutate into something which will transfer from human to human too.

Moreover, it has been reported that the Department of Livestock Service has been on culling spree and chucking out poultry feed since the scary reports started floating.
