Our findings show clearly that this 'childhood imprinting' gives strong protection against severe infection or death from two major strains of avian influenza. These results will help us quantify the risk of particular emerging influenza viruses sparking a major outbreak.

As the supply of shell eggs moved higher after the disruptions created by the Avian Influenza outbreak in the spring of 2015, market prices declined. Retail demand remained favorable; however, lower institutional demand for egg products and reduced egg exports pushed inventory levels higher and created additional pricing pressures.

Research shows that in addition to severe chest infections, flu may also lead to heart attacks and strokes. Most severe influenza complications occur in the elderly and people who suffer from long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and asthma.

This large study provides more evidence that when women are immunized against influenza during pregnancy, their infants are much less likely to be diagnosed with influenza in their first six months of life. Pregnant women may be concerned about harm, but they need to understand that there is strong evidence that getting vaccinated against influenza during pregnancy protects both themselves and their babies from serious harm.

When a mother who refused the flu vaccine delivers, her newborn baby is more likely to contract influenza and more likely to require hospitalization compared to babies born to mothers who were vaccinated during pregnancy.

Flu activity this season started a bit later and has been lower so far than we've seen during the previous three seasons, but activity is still on the upswing and expected to continue for several weeks. Flu causes serious illnesses and deaths every year. This season, the CDC has received reports of hospitalizations and deaths in young, otherwise healthy people who were infected with influenza A H1N1, but not vaccinated.

Pollution and using too many electronic devices and chemicals only makes the situation worse, as these factors weaken the immune system. Viruses are getting stronger, epidemics last longer, a simple influenza can last weeks; we have all experienced this, at least in Central Europe.

The risk of avian influenza in Hong Kong is not significantly higher than before, but since there is one case we have to be very careful.

Debby Reynolds

No I can't confirm it, it's the H5 highly pathogennic strain of avian influenza but I've not yet got the N1 results so it's too soon to say.

Philip Tod

All the virological tests carried out to date in Romania have proven negative for the presence of the avian influenza virus. So every day that passes reassures our confidence that there is not an outbreak of avian influenza in Romania.

Thomas Muster

We have produced our vaccine with so-called reverse genetics. That means that we can do everything faster. In three or four days we can generate any strain of the influenza, both seasonal influenza or a influenza epidemic, to start the production of the vaccine.

Keiji Fukuda - World Health Organization

We know that if this situation evolves, one of the questions that will come up very soon is, what is the availability of a vaccine?' We're already working with our collaborating centres, we have begun the preliminary work to prepare influenza viruses for a potential swine vaccine, if we need it.

Keiji Fukuda - World Health Organization

The labelling of the pandemic as fake is to ignore recent history and science, and to trivialise the deaths of over 14,000 people and the many serious additional illnesses experienced by others. So, let me state clearly for the record: the influenza pandemic policies and responses recommended and taken by the WHO were not improperly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.

David Nabarro

I am expecting to see outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in a number of locations over the next three or four months and I am basing that on what happened last year.

Margaret Chan - World Health Organization

The scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic have been met. I have therefore decided to raise the level of Influenza Pandemic alert from Phase 5 to Phase 6. The world is now at the start of the 2009 influenza pandemic.
