Welcome to AvianFluTalk.com!
AvianFluTalk.com was created November, 2005, as the first ever dedicated website and forum to track the potential threat of an avian flu pandemic. Variants of an avian flu virus can cause severe illness and death, which is why an avian flu pandemic poses such a significant public health risk. Should an avian flu virus mutate allowing it to pass efficiently between humans similar to the common flu resulting in a pandemic, this forum and its dedicated members will provide you with the latest news and information from around the world.
The pandemic alert phase is currently at level 4 due to the recent emergence of a new bird flu variant in China that is infecting humans known as H7N9. The infectious H7N9 has displayed efficient transmission from birds to humans causing severe illness along with confirmed cases of limited human-to-human transmission. The H7N9 bird flu virus is virulent in humans. The pandemic alert level will be raised or lowered based on the current threat level of having the next pandemic.
In addition, a new SARS-like coronavirus has also recently emerged in the Middle East leading to a second pandemic threat. The new coronavirus has infected over 30 people resulting in 18 deaths and is spread via limited human-to-human transmission. The new coronavirus is extremely virulent in humans. France recently reported its first two human cases of the new SARS-like virus as it continues to spread.
The forum structure on this website will enable you to discuss the latest pandemic developments with others from all around the world in real-time discussion.
