Recombinomics Commentary

June 28, 2005

>>  The understanding about the death personnel's information report is, China official already through unorthodox way under *fund, but understands information is dies one person of country compensates 80000 Yuan. Says regarding many epidemic diseases areas personnel, 80000 Yuan are equal to the local resident approximately 60 years income.

Before we understand the information is dies more than 100 people, but acts according to understands actual under dials compensates the fund surpassed 60000000, moreover more than 60000000 only is to death personnel's compensate, does not include to infects personnel's medical service allocates funds.  <<

The above machine translated test from a Boxun report at Abundant News suggests that there may be as many as 700 H5N1 bird flu victims based on the size of the compensation fund.  The fund is for death benefits and does not included medical costs or compensation to families where there are no survivors.

The story has not been verified, but is available online at  Reports from last month indicated 6 tourists and 121 residents in Qinghai Provoince had died from bird flu, along with over 8000 birds. The latest update from WHO indicating over 5000 birds had died is closer to the boxun number than the 519 birds in the OIE report or the over 1000 birds mentioned in the follow-up press conference

China has said they have only test two people who had contact with the birds and had bird flu symptoms, including respiratory illness.  Although they tested negative, China has never reported a positive bird flu patient and they have asked for testing of their primers.  Mismatched primers in northern and southern Vietnam have produced false negatives, so the status of the two patient is unclear because China did not indicate what organism caused the bird flu symptoms.  Therefore, China has admitted that there are at least two suspect bird flu cases in Qinghai, although there has been no lab verification.
