    BANGKOK : Thailand has recorded its first human death from bird flu since authorities confirmed the presence of the disease in the kingdom last week.

    Department of Disease Control Director-General Charal Trinwuthipong said one of the two Thai boys suspected of having bird flu died on Sunday night.


    "He died last night around midnight because of the bird flu," Charal said on Monday.

    After weeks of denying that a disease ravaging chickens in Thailand was the H5N1 virus which has killed six people in Vietnam, the government confirmed the two human cases on Friday and said the virus had been detected in poultry. - CNA

    BANGKOK : Asia´s bird flu crisis deepened as Indonesia said "millions" of its chickens had died from the illness, making it the seventh nation to confirm the deadly disease.

    Thailand, set to host international talks on the epidemic this week, also confirmed the deadly H5N1 strain, which has killed six people in Vietnam, had spread to a second province despite mass poultry culls.


    Meanwhile China raised its defences against the disease by banning poultry imports from Thailand and Cambodia.

    An Indonesian government spokesman said 4.7 million birds have died since November by a combination of Newcastle disease and what he called Type A avian influenza. About 60 percent of the birds died from Newcastle disease.

    "The government will not cover it up that Indonesia has now been infected by the avian influenza which has attacked millions of poultry in Indonesia," said the agriculture ministry´s director for animal husbandry, Sofyan Sudrajat, according to Antara news agency.

    It was not known whether the H5N1 strain was present in Indonesia. Japan, Cambodia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam have all reported the strain, while Taiwan has detected only the weaker H5N2. Millions of chickens have been slaughtered in those countries.

    No deaths have been confirmed from the stronger strain outside of Vietnam, although it is suspected of killing one Thai man.

    About 650 Thai troops were ordered to slaughter all chickens in Suphan Buri province, where the virus was first detected, while culling was to intensify in adjoining Kanchanaburi, which borders Myanmar and where H5N1 was also confirmed on Sunday.

    Thailand´s premier, battling accusations that his government had covered up the disease before admitting its presence on Friday, conceded officials had suspected the virus was infecting chickens.

    "We suspected it for about a couple of weeks," Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra told reporters, insisting that even though the results had not been confirmed in recent weeks, "we have acted as if it was the bird flu."

    When asked why the public was not informed of the threat after birds began dying in the kingdom in November, he said: "When it is not the bird flu, how can you tell them it is bird flu?"

    Thaksin, who travelled to Suphan Buri to meet with some of the thousands of farmers whose livelihoods have been devastated by the outbreak, refused to take responsibility for the extent of the disease´s spread.

    "Let´s blame it on bad luck. The government is finding a solution to help you. We must cooperate," he said.

    Health officials in Myanmar said they were still allowing Thai poultry to enter but were closely monitoring border crossings.

    "We have asked health and customs officials at our borders to keep a close check on imports of small chicks and eggs... especially from neighbouring countries where the virus has been detected," Khin Swe Win, from the Animal Breeding and Husbandry Department, told AFP.

    All affected nations have been invited by Thailand to attend ministerial talks in Bangkok on Wednesday, Foreign Minister Surakiart Sathirathai said.

    "The meeting is to draft consistent prevention measures for affected countries. These countries can´t work alone because this is a cross-border issue," Surakiart told reporters late Saturday.

    "We have to adopt the same standards to make other countries confident."

    All except South Korea and Taiwan have confirmed their attendance, he said.

    China, the European Union, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States, the World Health Organisation and the Food and Agriculture Organisation will send officials, he added.

    By the end of Sunday more than 10.7 million chickens were expected to have been culled or to have died from the epidemic in Thailand, as well as 4.7 million in Indonesia, 2.9 million in Vietnam, nearly two million in South Korea, 55,000 in Taiwan and 35,000 in Japan.

    The World Health Organisation has urged countries with outbreaks of bird flu to prevent the virus taking a deadlier hold on humans by quickly slaughtering chickens affected by the disease.

    The UN health agency has warned that the highly pathogenic H5N1 strain could merge with a human influenza virus to create an infectious virus sub-type capable of human-to-human transmission.

    Thailand's government is being held up to ridicule over its "see no evil" approach which has led it to deny the presence here of everything from bird flu to terrorists before making embarrassing backdowns.

    Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's administration admitted on Friday that the deadly strain of avian influenza which has killed six people in Vietnam had infected both humans and chickens in Thailand.

    But the announcement came only after weeks of vehement denials, and angry insistence that the devastating chicken disease it was fighting across the country was not bird flu but another ailment, fowl cholera.

    Thaksin denied a cover-up, but in the confusing double-speak which he is famous for, conceded information which could have affected Thailand's 1.2 billion dollar chicken exporting industry had been suppressed.

    "Please trust the government. It did not make an announcement in the very beginning because it did not want the public to panic," he said as his ministers prepared to announce the bad news.

    "Please realise that the government has done more than the public was aware of," he pleaded, in a change in tone from earlier in the week when he and his ministers tucked into a chicken lunch in a stunt put on for the media.

    Desperate to maintain its reputation as a safe and peaceful destination which helps attract some 10 million tourists annually, Thailand's government has also sought to distance itself from other modern ills.

    In the wake of the September 11 attacks on the United States and the rise of Islamic separatist groups like Asia's Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), it repeatedly declared Thailand was completely free from the threat of terrorism.

    The claims continued until shortly before Indonesian militant Hambali, the region's most wanted man who is believed to be JI's operations chief, was nabbed in the central city of Ayutthaya last August.

    During the SARS crisis which swept Asia last year, the government also raised eyebrows with assertions there was no risk of contracting the atypical pneumonia here and an offer of one million baht (25,000 dollars) compensation for anyone who died of it.

    Analysts said this track record of dissembling could severely harm confidence in Thailand as the extent of the bird flu crisis, which has also hit Cambodia, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, becomes clear.

    Pacific Asia Travel Association director John Koldowski said a downturn in tourism was inevitable, particularly because visitors were concerned about the lack of transparency in dealing with the disease.

    "The feeling among tourists is if there is a problem, face it, deal with it, and get back on track," he said.

    "People heard for so long that there were no terrorists in Thailand and then there were, and now they are being told there is no problem with this outbreak but they don't believe it."

    The bird flu crisis comes on the heels of another public relations nightmare for the government, a daring raid on an army depot in the Muslim-majority south that killed four soldiers and made international headlines last month.

    Even as it insisted the sophisticated assault, carried out simultaneously with attacks on 18 schools and two police checkpoints, was only the work of "bandits", security officials said they feared Muslim separatists were to blame.

    "It hasn't been the best start to the Year of the Monkey for Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. And January isn't even over yet," an opinion piece in The Nation newspaper said Saturday.

    "The burning of schools, an attack on an army camp and a couple of bomb incidents sowed enough seeds of doubt on proclaimed security and stability."

    After a faltering start when he stormed into power in 2001 just two years after setting up his political party, Thaksin has grown increasingly confident to the point critics say his CEO-style of governance reeks of authoritarianism.

    But his administration now faces calls for sackings as health experts say the delay in confirming the outbreak of bird flu, which is believed to have hit last November, had jeopardised its ability to contain the epidemic.

    Hospital and laboratory officials have said they were aware of the infections but were too afraid to speak out against the government which is the most powerful in Thailand's short democratic history.

    "The government's efforts to sweep the problem under the carpet has exploded in its face, leaving the poultry industry in tatters and the very safety of the public in jeopardy," the Bangkok Post said in a weekend editorial.

    Ich faß´ dann mal zusammen:

    Aus Angst vor der Vogelgrippe werden in Thailand Millionen von Hühnern eutanisiert.
    Allen Unkenrufen zum Trotz verspeiste Thaksin öffentlich gebratene Hühnchenstücke.
    Die Bundesrepublik hat die Einfuhr von Hühnern aus Thailand gestoppt...

    Für die, die nicht soviel Lesen wollen - und dann auch noch in Englisch ;-D

    Mich würde mal interessieren wie das ganze das Leben in Thailand beeinflusst. Inzwischen fragt ja hier schon jeder besorgt nach, ob ich wirklich noch nach Thailand fahre.

    Gibt es noch Hähnchenfleisch zu kaufen oder reagieren die Verbaucher genauso panisch, wie es die Deutschen machen würden?

    wie ich gelesen habe, wird wesentlich weniger Hühnerfleisch gekauft, dafür mehr Schwein, das aber, wie marktwirtschaftlich vorauszusehen, im Preis gestiegen ist.

    Wir hatten Gestern Abend noch Five Star Chicken, und es war köstlich, nur unser 9 jährige Sohnemann hat nichts davon angerührt weil Mutter es ihm verboten hat. Natürllich gibt es noch Huhn und Hähnchen zu kaufen, roh oder gegrillt oder Kao Man Khai Tod...etc, etc.
    Manche kaufen und essen, manche nicht. Vielleicht ändert das sich aber drastisch in den nächsten Tagen und Wochen. Hängt davon ab wie die Nachrichten über Entwicklung und Verlauf sein werden. Man befürchtet ja jetzt, daß die Enten sich auch anstecken könnten - das wäre natürlich hart für die Chinesen hier...

    Zusätzlich zu dem bisher geschrieben, Radio NDR Info:

    Bisher ein Toter in TH
    Strafgefangene und Militär zur Entsorgung eingesetzt
    Entschädigung seitens der Regierung: 1 Euro pro Huhn
    Betroffene Landwirte/Züchter wollen 2 Euro pro Huhn

    Thaksin: 30 Tage und der Spuk ist vorbei, und
    Er wisse, was er tue...
    In Thailand sind bald wahlen(?)...

    Übertragung Mensch/Mensch noch nicht nachgewiesen, aber Gefahr
    der Mutation mit Grippeviren. Dagegen wäre SARS nur ein Husten...
