【新唐人2014年02月07日訊】中國禽流感疫情一波接著一波﹗新型禽流感病毒H10N8來勢洶洶。去年末,中國出現全球首例人類感染H10N8病毒死亡案例,今年一月底,又有一人被感染這型病毒。不過,最近不少家禽業者希望相關部門停止通報禽流感疫情,他們說,疫情通報導致他們經濟損失上千億。而部分省份也開始低調處理疫情訊息,不再主動發送病例通報給媒體。但根據世界衛生組織條例,對於新增的傳染病,每一例都要通報。中國既然加入世衛組織,理當遵守這項規則。

去年12月初,中國出現首例人類感染H10N8個案,江西南昌的1名73歲老婦人,因接觸活禽市場而感染H10N8,引發呼吸衰竭致死﹔今年1月底,南昌又有1人感染新型禽流感,但詳細情形中共官方不願透露。

根據《蘋果日報》報導,科學家研究發現,H10N8病毒出現變異,容易感染人的肺部深處,導致首名病人病發後9天,因多種器官衰竭而迅速死亡。專家擔心,H10N8具有人傳人的基因特性,顯示病毒持續流傳。

另外,廣東日前出現三宗H7N9禽流感家庭性聚集個案,包括一對父女,分別於2月1號和2號確診感染。音這名父親經營燒烤店,不排除有人傳人的可能。另外,廣西新增一名5歲男童感染H7N9,是早前一名確診病人的兒子。

掌握及時的疫情訊息,是民眾知的權利,但中國有不少地區的家禽行業協會發佈公開信,請求當局停止通報禽流感病例。他們的理由是,當局把H7N9病毒列為禽流感病毒,對家禽業造成所謂「災難」性的打擊,損失高達1000億元,光是今年開春以來的損失就已經有200億元。

對此,廣東當局在過去幾天,已經不再主動向媒體通報感染禽流感病例的情況。

《新唐人》記者:「目前當局對於禽流感的訊息公布,做了降級處理,不是每天通報,而是每個月一次,那您覺得目前民間的恐慌,現在這個辦法是更好一些嗎?您怎麼想?」

浙江杭州居民黃金秋:「對民眾生命負責任的態度,他肯定應該是每天公布,或者至少是出現一個新的案例就要馬上公布,這是最有效的。如果你說的這種情況,我覺得他們是想降低社會的關注度、降低他所認為的人民恐慌度。」

浙江省本週通報新增13例人感染H7N9禽流感病例,今年度浙江已纍計通報病例69例。據了解,疫情最嚴重的杭州市,各醫院目前的流感患者相當的多,發熱門診都需要排隊看病。

記者:「我想請問一下,今年以來,發熱科收了多少禽流感的病人?」

浙江大學醫學院附屬第一醫院發熱科值班醫生:「那肯定有幾十個,肯定有了。」

記者:「那有多少人死亡?」

值班醫生:「這我不清楚,每天會通報,但不會通報到每個員工這裡。」

去年10月,中共衛生部門把H7N9的管理降格,從甲類傳染病降格為乙類傳染病,但根據世界衛生組織規定,新增病例仍需每例通報。

福建漳州龍海第一醫院醫生胡龍生:「我們這個傳染病都有監報系統,只要發病就會上網傳報。」

記者:「是說向上級通報?那對社會的報告是?」

胡龍生:「那對社會的話,政府就會統一發佈,如果真的有發現這個病例,政府就統一發佈,醫院沒發佈的。」

資料顯示,雖然中國各地採取封閉活禽交易市場的措施,試圖防止疫情的擴大,但是相較於去年,H7N9型禽流感的感染者,仍有快速增加的趨勢,因此提醒中國民眾要小心防範。

China cuts back on reports of new strain of Avian Flu !
H10N8 if thought to be transmitted person to person.

ANCHOR: Reports of outbreaks of avian flu are being arising in China!
The new bird flu virus H10N8 has become fatal.
After the first death case reported in China late last year,
another case of infection was reported at
the end of the January.

Local poultry markets complained about outbreak reports’ ,
which have led to economic losses of more
than tens of billions of yuan.

There are provincial officials now, starting to handle
outbreaks in low-key and no longer voluntarily issue
based case reports.

Being members of WHO (World Health Organization),
China is obliged to report new infections.

Text: In early December of last year, the first human case of
H10N8 happened in China.
A 73-year-old woman from Nanchang city was infected with
H10N8 at a live poultry market, she later
died of respiratory failure.

At the end of January, one more person from Nanchang
city was found to be infected with the new strain.
Officials declined to reveal the details.

Hong Kong’s Apple Daily reported, scientists have found
a mutation has occurred, allowing the the new
H10N8 strain to adapt to the lungs.

It managed to kill the patient in nine days
due to multiple organ failure.
Experts are worried about the person-to-person transmission
due to genetic adaptation and the spread of the strain.

Also,three cases of H7N9 were recently identified in Guangdong.
Included are father and daughter from the same family.
The father ran a barbecue restaurant, the possibility of person-to-
person infection is not excluded.
A 5-year-old boy from Guangxi was also confirmed of having the
illness, he is the son of a patient who was previously
identified to have contracted the same illness.

It is people’s right to get timely information of outbreaks.

However, many poultry associations in China have issued
open letters, demanding the government to stop news
releases of avian flu outbreaks.

Their excuse is that, due to the authorities defining the H7N9 virus
as the avian flu virus,
has caused disastrous damage to the poultry
industry, with losses of over tens of billions in yuan.
Since the New Year, the loss has been as high as 20 billion yuan.

Correspondently, the Guangdong authorities no longer
voluntarily released alerts of avian flu outbreaks
in the past few days.

NTD Reporter: “The authorities have cut down on the reports
of the avian flu outbreak.
“Instead of releasing news on a daily basis, it’s cut down to just
once a month. Do you think this helps to relieve the panic?
What is your thought?"

Huang Jinqiu, a Hangzhou, Zhejiang resident: “The responsible
attitude should be a daily report or immediate report on new
cases, to be effective as of today.

“What they are doingis their way to reduce
the concern and panic."

Zhejiang province has issued 13 new cases of H7N9 this week.
In this year, there have been a total of 69 reported
cases in Zhejiang alone.

Hangzhou city is understood to be undergoing the most
serious of the epidemic.
The hospitals have received many patients with the illness.
Patients are lined up in the fever clinics.

During an interview with one doctor ;
Reporter: “I would like to know how many avian flu patients
the fever department has received this year."
Fever doctor on call, The First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang
University: “Certainly a few dozen, for sure."
Reporter: “How many have died?"
Doctor: “It’s not clear to me. There will be notice every day,
but not to everyone."

Last October, the Communist health department downgraded
H7N9 from Class A to Class B infectious diseases.
However, according to the WHO, new cases need to be reported.

Hu Longsheng, a doctor at Longhai First Hospital of Fujian
Province: “We have an infectious disease monitoring &
reporting system to report outbreaks on-line."
Reporter: “Is the report to the superiors or to the general public?" Hu Longsheng: “The Government will issue collective reports
to the public, not from the hospital."

Data shows, even though the regime closed live poultry markets
with confirmed cases in the hopes of preventing
further infections from spreading,

compared to last year, H7N9 outbreaks have continued and
rapidly increased. The Chinese people are reminded
of taking precautions.
