In case of death due to influenza A/H5N1 after eating duck soup more of a young men at Dien Bien on November 30 experts has raised concerns about the ability to match the influenza A/H1N1 virus and influenza A/H5N1 virus are at risk are very close.

“The risk of a combination of influenza virus A/H1N1 and influenza A/H5N1 virus is very close to. Vietnam currently has sufficient condition for this risk becomes reality,” Dr. Nguyen Tran Hien, Director of Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology of central receiving.

Show his outlook given the Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology Central announced the latest report on the epidemiological investigation in Dien Bien, which is just the latest case of deaths due to H5N1.

Epidemiological investigation showed that: In case of death by eating more duck soup at Dien Bien is positive for influenza A/H5N1 virus. After taking a random sample from their child’s case to test the test, the results showed that young cousin’s death was due to influenza A/H5N1 influenza A/H1N1 infection.

Continue to check poultry being raised by families of cases of death due to influenza A/H5N1, the results showed: Poultry is also infected with influenza A/H5N1.

“So, the first in Vietnam, the same time, the influenza A/H1N1 and influenza A/H5N1 occurred in a community population, in both human and poultry. Therefore, likely a new strain will come out, the recombinant virus from the second. If this happens, the virus would have spread faster than influenza A/H1N1 virus, while also having a higher pathogenic influenza A/H5N1 virus,” said the sage.

If this risk becomes reality, the health sector will face challenges more heavily. 2009 actually showed that influenza A/H1N1 virus can spread easily in all conditions. Now with influenza A/H5N1, mortality rate in Vietnam as of this moment is 100%!

The above translation suggests a family in Dien Bien, Vietnam has tested positive for H5N1 and H1N1. Poultry belonging to the family has also tested positive for H5N1.

Vietnam represents a hot zone where H1N1 and H5N1 are co-circulating. H1N1 is very promiscuous and has been isolated from a variety of mammalian species as well as turkeys. Thus, Vietnam would offer an environment for co-infections in a wide range of host including human
