H5N1 pandemic in India-Effort of EVOKE

It's new year 2011 but citigens of Delhi are shocked to learn the outbreak of avian influenza (bird flu). All the morning edition of leading daily carried tthe news of patients with serious underlying medical conditions was admitted to hospitals. Experts have told that this is Influenza A (H5N1) virus – also called “H5N1 virus” – is an influenza A virus subtype that occurs mainly in birds, is highly contagious among birds, and can be deadly to them. Bird flu remains difficult for humans to catch, but experts fear the virus might mutate into a new form that spreads easily among people, potentially sparking a pandemic. Most of these cases have resulted from people having direct or close contact with H5N1-infected poultry or H5N1-contaminated surfaces.

The deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu are being tested from samples taken from dead chickens of poultry farms with the help of my vet friends from National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal. Already we have chalked out plans for quarantine the affected birds. Also in extreme cases we are planning to slaughter birds in a bid to keep the outbreak from spreading for which volunteershave also been empanaled.

Also Lynn has taken the responsibilty of developing the route maps in Ushahidi for route maps for nearest hospitals separately for East, West, North, South and Central Delhi as well as for trans Yamuna areas using Google maps. Lynn just told me this morning that we can expect the same by today evening.

We have also mobilised volunteers for transporting aged uncared patients from different regions to nearby hospitals for screening and treatment. Online kiosks have been opened for this purpose.

The following Twitter developed with the help of fellow EVOKERs will provide news on H5N1 spread, hospital emergency numbers, regionwise location of hospitals.

We have planned for flu shot finder as given below which will be developed shortly for the benefit of affected population.

We have also contacted a team of Doctors for online consultation. They have provided the following difference between the H1N1 and H5N1 viruses.

We have chalked out for a fund raising programme from leading philanthopic industrial houses for providing N-95 masks to the volunteers. Also we have planned for hand sanitiser and emergency kit for volunteers from the raised funds. Also we have purchased some disposable masks for underpriviledged section of the society to check spread of deadly virus.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
