This big crisis looming over the country! Centre issues high alert for first death due to avian flu

New Delhi: India has reported the first death due to avian flu. An 11-year-old admitted at Delhi AIIMS succumbed to the virus. The child died a day ago but has activated two different scientific teams in the country after receiving the virus report on Tuesday. The government has also issued a high alert.

According to reports, the child was admitted to the d-5 ward of AIIMS on July 2 last. He was first put on ICU and then ventilator when the situation worsened here but he died last Monday. When the inquiry report came on Tuesday afternoon, there was an uproar at AIIMS. The entire team undergoing treatment was isolated. The samples of the child were examined by the National Institute of Virology (NIV) in Pune and the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in New Delhi and described as positive.

The union health ministry has just issued a high alert. The entire family and those in touch with the child have been kept in isolation. At the same time, their identity has been kept secret. It is being reported that the identity cannot be made public till the surveillance is completed but AIIMS sources say that the child was a resident of an outer region and was not a resident of Delhi. A senior AIIMS doctor said that avian flu not only spreads rapidly but is also a high-risk virus with a very high mortality rate.
