Flu Mask

Possible Human to Human Bird Flu Transmission - NewsFlu Mask for the flu and specifically for the bird flu.
Bird Flu Masks (NanoMasks) have filters with nanoparticles that have been proven to be highly effective in eradicating viruses and bacteria (including the Avian Flu).

The Nano Mask is the first face mask in the world to utilize nanotechnology enhanced filter media to effectively isolate and destroy viral and bacterial contaminants. Nanoparticles enhance the intrinsic filtration efficiency of the media by acting as a destructive absorbent to kill virus and bacteria that come in contact with the filtration system.

    UN: Expect Bird Flu to Spread Rapidly

    Bird Flu Spreading RapidlyThe world should expect more bird flu outbreaks in the coming months, the U.N. official coordinating the global fight against the virus warned, after Britain recorded its first case of the H5N1 strain on a commercial farm.

    Dr. David Nabarro said, however, that he did not expect the virus to spread in Britain to neighboring farms because of the quick containment measures put in place by the government.

    Hong Kong Confirms Bird Flu

    Bird Flu in the USAA dead bird found in Hong Kong has tested positive for a mildr strain of the bird flu virus, the city’s health authorities said.

    “Preliminary testing of a dead bird … indicate a suspected case of H5 avian influenza,” a spokesman for the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department said in a statement.

    Further tests are now being carried out on the carcass of the Crested Hoshawk, which was found by a member of the public, the statement added.

    Hong Kong was the scene of the world’s first reported major bird flu outbreak among humans in 1997, when six people died of a then unknown mutation of the avian flu virus. Millions of poultry were culled.

    A renewed outbreak in 2003 among poultry flocks in Asia triggered a wave of bird flu infections worldwide.

    The bird flu’s H5N1 strain is potentially deadly to humans. Bird flu has killed more than 150 people worldwide since late 2003. There are fears it could mutate and trigger a deadly human flu pandemic.

    France tests dead birds for Bird Flu

    France tests dead birds, does not suspect bird flu

    Officials are carrying out tests to see what caused the deaths of some 4,000 chickens on a farm in northeastern France, but initial indications did not point to bird flu, the agriculture ministry said on Monday. The ministry said in a statement that the birds died suddenly on Saturday while another 3,500 chickens at the same site appeared completely health. “The clinical aspects (of the case) as well as the results of the autopsies do not especially indicate a diagnostic of bird flu,” the statement said, adding that full results were not expected until Tuesday. The owner of the farm told LCI television that it was “99 percent certain it is not bird flu”.

    Between December 2003 and March 2004, about 400,000 poultry at South Korean farms were infected by the bird flu virus.

    During that outbreak, the country culled 5.3 million birds and was forced to spend huge amounts to stop the spread of the disease.
