first_imgJun 1, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesian officials announced today that a 15-year-old girl from Central Java died of H5N1 avian influenza this week, as the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that it received two human H5N1 samples from China, ending a nearly year-long delay in sharing promised samples.An official named Tondro from Indonesia’s bird flu center said the girl got sick on May 21 and was treated at a local hospital, but was transferred to Karyadi hospital in the Central Java capital of Samarang 4 days later and died there on May 29, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported today.The girl was reported to have had contact with sick birds, Reuters and Xinhua reported. Muhammad Nadirin, another official from Indonesia’s bird flu center, told Reuters the girl handled a dead chicken when preparing to cook it. Several chickens died at her home and that of a neighbor, the Xinhua report said.Her death marks Indonesia’s third fatal H5N1 case, with all three cases from Central Java, in less than 2 weeks.If the WHO confirms her case, Indonesia’s H5N1 toll will be 99 cases with 79 deaths. The country’s latest previous case, in a 45-year-old man who was reported to have slaughtered and eaten a sick chicken, was confirmed by the WHO yesterday, bringing the agency’s count for Indonesia to 98 cases and 78 deaths, the most of any country. The global WHO count is 309 cases with 187 deaths.Meanwhile, a shipment containing two human H5N1 samples from China arrived at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last night, a WHO official said today, according to Reuters. The CDC is a WHO collaborating center.”We welcome it, it shows China is working with the international system of virus sharing,” WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl told Reuters. Last week another WHO official told the Associated Press (AP) that the specimens were from a 2006 case from Xinjiang province in far western China and a 2007 case from Fujian province in the south.Researchers use samples of both seasonal flu viruses and novel strains like H5N1 to monitor viral evolution and drug resistance and to develop vaccines. The WHO has coordinated the international flu surveillance system for more than 50 years.In other avian flu news, a veterinary official in Vietnam said an H5N1 outbreak has been confirmed in another province, bringing the number of provinces with recent outbreaks to 13 out of 64, the AP reported today.Pham Ngoc Anh, director of animal health for Quang Nam province, said an outbreak killed 300 unvaccinated ducks at a farm in the province, and tests confirmed the birds were infected with H5N1 avian flu, the AP report said. The remaining 400 birds were culled and the site was disinfected.On May 25 an official from Vietnam’s National Institute of Epidemiology confirmed that a 30-year-old farmer from Vinh Phuc province who got sick after slaughtering chickens for a wedding had tested positive for H5N1, according to previous media reports.He was reported to be hospitalized in critical condition. The WHO, however, has not yet confirmed the man’s case, so Vietnam’s case count remains at 93 cases and 42 deaths.In the past, Vietnam has been praised by animal health experts for its tough avian flu prevention efforts after widespread outbreaks in 2004 and 2005 led to the culling of 66 million birds and triggered many human cases. The disease subsided through most of 2006, but late in the year it flared up at farms where poultry flocks had not been vaccinated and birds were hatched illegally.See also:May 31 WHO statementMay 25 CIDRAP News story “China resumes sending human H5N1 samples”last_img read more

He finished the loss with 15 points, seven rebounds and a pair of steals on 5-of-15 shooting. In just one season, the forward that ranks sixth in the country in minutes per game has grown into a playmaker both in the paint and from beyond the arc. But along with his marginal improvements offensively, Brissett’s draft stock has also seen a similar jump.“You obviously hear it when people tag you in stuff,” Brissett said. “Whole lot of draft boards … It is tough because I’m always on my phone but I just try to forget about it and think about what I have in front of me, which is this team.”Brissett, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward, finished his freshman season averaging 14.9 points and a team-high 8.8 rebounds per game. He often attacked the paint and drew multiple fouls per game — he went 5-for-6 from the charity stripe Friday —  and even finished first on the team with a 33-percent clip from 3.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNot a highly-touted recruit, Brissett found himself outside the Top 100 in 247sports.com’s and ESPN’s Class of 2017 rankings. But the do-it-all freshman quickly became an integral part of the Orange’s rotation, especially as the season progressed.“Oshae has grown so much just from the summer to now,” SU sophomore Tyus Battle said. “It’s been a lot of hard work especially with coach (Adrian Autry) … Just to see him in the Tournament averaging 18 and 10, it’s amazing.”Against Clemson, in a must-win game, Brissett finished with a team-high 17 points. He added six rebounds, three blocks and a pair of steals in the 55-52 win. Then, after Syracuse made the NCAA Tournament, he exploded for a game-high 23 points and 12 rebounds on 7-of-15 shooting to lift SU over Arizona State in a play-in game.Brissett has grown from a new freshman into a veteran in Syracuse’s seven-man rotation. And with three prospects joining the Orange next year, Brissett will likely need to step up as a sophomore leader.“The guys that are coming in next year,” Brissett said, “I feel like I need to educate them and let them know a lot about how the season should be.” Commentslast_img read more
