H5N1 Bird Flu in Afghanistan?  

Recombinomics Commentary

March 12, 2006

The sudden death of a cat that ate a dead bird and several chickens has fueled fears of a possible bird-flu outbreak in the eastern Laghman province

linked the concerns to the abrupt death of 150 chicks in Mehtarlam, Daulat Shah and Alingar districts.

The above comments raise the possibility of H5N1 bird flu spread to Afghanistan.  Such as spread would not be unexpected.  Both Pakistan and India have confirmed H5N1 outbreaks as has Iran and most locations adjacent to the Caspian Sea.

Although the poultry have yet to be tested, the sudden death of cats that eat birds that have suddenly died may be the low budget bird flu detection test.

More information on the dead birds would be useful, but H5N1 positive results would not be a surprise.
