Even as the current coronavirus pandemic has yet to end, China is now reporting its first case of the H10N3 bird flu virus. On Tuesday, Beijing’s National Health Commission (NHC) confirmed its first case. A 41-year-old man in China’s Jiangsu province became the first human case of bird flu known as H10N3.

Bird Flu

China is home to many different strains of bird flu. In some cases, these may transfer to humans, especially those who work closely with poultry.

In this case, there are no indications that H10N3 spreads easily among humans. The man, a Zhenjiang city resident, entered the hospital on April 28 and received a diagnosis of H10N3 a month later. NHC did not give information on how the man became infected. 

At present, the man’s condition remains stable. In fact, he is ready for discharge as of today. Previous contract tracing efforts did not show any additional victims or cases of H10N3. 

In fact, there is no other case of human infection in the whole world. Meanwhile, earlier studies show that H10N3 is low pathogenic, which means it causes relatively less severe disease in poultry and is unlikely to cause a large-scale outbreak, the NHC added.

Comparisons WIth COVID-19

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), H10N3 is a type of bird flu or avian flu. These illnesses are common in wild aquatic birds worldwide but can infect domestic poultry and other bird and animal species.

Infected birds shed avian flu in their saliva, mucus, and feces. The virus can get inside humans through the eyes, nose, or mouth. It can also enter human bodies from inhalation of infected droplets or dust. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, many are already comparing H10N3 with the coronavirus. However, China’s National Health Commission is eager to debunk the similarities.

Bird flu viruses normally don’t infect humans, but crossover infections do happen. “This infection is an accidental cross-species transmission,” the NHC said in a statement. “The risk of large-scale transmission is low.”

H10N3 Bird Flu Source Unknown

Replying to a media inquiry, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that the “source of the patient’s exposure to the H10N3 virus is not known at this time, and no other cases were found in emergency surveillance among the local population. 

At this time, there is no indication of human-to-human transmission. As long as avian influenza viruses circulate in poultry, sporadic infection of avian influenza in humans is not surprising, which is a vivid reminder that the threat of an influenza pandemic is persistent,” the WHO added.

No Additional Strains Until H10N3

Since the H7N9 strain killed an estimated 300 people in 2016-2017, there are no additional reports of human infections with bird flu. Filip Claes of the Food and Agriculture Organization’s Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases said that the H10N3 virus is one of the rare strains. 

Scientists discovered about 160 isolates of the virus during the last 40 years. Most came from wild birds or waterfowl in Asia. In addition, there are strains found in birds living in parts of North America.

So ar, virus strains have yet to be detected in chickens, he added. Analyzing the genetic data of the virus is necessary to determine whether it resembles older viruses or if it is a novel mix of different viruses, Claes said.

Should You Be Concerned About The H10N3 Virus?

When bird flu spreads from birds to humans, it becomes a cause for concern. According to Dr. Amersh Adalja, John Hopkins senior scholar, “It’s a critical barrier for an avian virus to cross. Only a small subset of avian flu viruses can do this.” When this happens, the viruses can cause illness that ranges from mild to severe. 

Meanwhile, Dr. William Schaffner, infectious disease specialist, said that another cause for concern is the ability to spread from person to person. “If it had that capacity, it would be the setting for a pandemic of influenza,” he added.

    China is the cause for all these diseases, why?!!! Because they develop these sicknesses and unleash it onto the world!!! They are in line with the NWO depopulation agenda!!!

  • Avatar Mark Hiatt says:

    Ofcourse, they unleashed covid to the world with no repercussions, so why not try something else. The world should eliminate China.

  • Avatar The professor says:

    The Chinese government are a bunch of evil people … The Chinese people are stuck there and they have to suffer because of their government ….. look at their past policies look at Tiananmen Square … we need to stop importing from China stop importing from China until the communist party is destroyed …. but nooooooo.. sleepy Joe and Hunter want to deal with China which means they don’t care about the Chinese people they care more for the communist party ….. so where does that leave the Chinese people and us …. being screwed !!!!!

    I agree with you Mr Professor, with the two in office now, This once Great Country is dieing under there resien. I am very concerned for myself and the American people under this government. I pray 10 fole back on them. God protect His people.

    Thank you Mr. M …. and in closing here on the East Coast in our supermarkets we get garlic from China if you are a garlic lover stay away from it it comes in a five pack fishnet stocking wrapper and it says made in China ….. I have been told Chinese food products are not cultivated cared for and sanitary conditions just like the meat markets where they sell the bats stay away from Chinese garlic !!!!

    Ugh! Here we go again😭🙏🏻

    Maybe these viruses are being created to use these means to take over our country and make it a communist country and the dems are part of it. They seem to want nothing but power and money and care nothing about our country. Its time for this party and all the lunatics running it to be put out of office. If we get back in the majority one of the first legislation to be passed should be term limits another means to get them out.

  • Avatar Chisel says:

    The NWO and the Plannedemic! America wake the fuck up. The Dems are way in this new agenda with china and the likes, how else would that meat puppet Biden, steal an election! Corrupt government and officals at their worst

  • Avatar David says:

    Of course there’s something else out of China! If people would look at tags on shit and stop buyimg their garbage we wouldn’t have this problem. I guess Joe will never get off of his knees.

  • Avatar Dr. RevBoa says:

    Don’t put those masks away just yet.

    This was quite foreseeable. It will help the agenda of control. They’ll insist masks must ALWAYS be worn. After all, we can never know what virus is waiting just around the corner and if we don’t have our masks on, it could be too late by time we discover it. They’ll insist the only way to combat it is to keep those masks on. It’s a very deranged philosophy. It’s even more deranged that this is all planned.

    Well if anyone does not see what’s clearly being played out here let me get my crayons out to draw you a picture that you should already see. With COVID winding down and more & more people figuring out we waaay overly reacted to it the New World Disorder (China/Biden-Obama) all think it’s a great idea to put the world back into hysteria with a new “Boo” virus.

    The big power players really liked how cowardly the world acted over the supposed “pandemic”(especially Americans) and they now know that they actually do not have to put forth no more effort other than crying “the sky is falling” to get most of you to retreat back into your homes waiting for your next orders. You will be told when you can come out, where you can go, what shot you must take, how much money the government will be giving you, What type of “mouth diaper” you have to where, and when & how your children can be educated. If you think I’m drawing up some kinda 1984 Wells conspiracy picture maybe you should look at 2020 and 2021 to realize we are already here!!

  • Avatar Margo says:

    Yes! Stop buying Chinese crap wherever possible. As a matter of fact, just stop ALL imports from China & get Americans back to work making those products. We’ve done it before& we can do it again! 🙏🏼

    CLOSE THE BORDER TO THOSE WORTHLESS CHINKS AND TELL THEM TO SICK THE BIRD FLU UP THEIR ASS AND NOTHING COME IN OR OUT FROM CHINK LAND

    Y’ALL PRAY FOR THIS COUNTRY !!!!!

    THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES PROSPEROUS ETC..THAT’S WHY EVERYBODY WANTS TO COME TO AMERICA! BUT WE SEEM TO BE GETTING AWAY FROM GOD… GUESS WHAT? I BELEIVE WE ARE HEADED FOR DESTRUCTION!!!!
