Returns to Bangladesh
‘The detection indicates that the virus is still active and may spread to other places,’ chief veterinary officer and director of the Department of Livestock Services Salehuddin Ahmed said.
The above comments describe the re-emergence of H5N1 in Bangladesh. The re-emergence is not unexpected, but there has been no OIE report filed on the outbreak, which is mandatory for H5 and H7 infections of poultry.
There has been somewhat of a decline in the reporting of H5N1 in birds because Indonesia and Egypt have declared H5N1 endemic and report less frequently. Other countries do not report H5 and H7 in wild birds. However, the number of countries which disregard mandatory reporting is on the rise and much of the detail on H5N1 outbreaks goes unreported.
More information on the outbreak(s) in Bangladesh would be useful.
