The EMPRES Animal Influenza Update compiles data on relevant
Animal Influenza cases/outbreaks. It is updated weekly, published in
PDF format and automatically sent by email to a list of subscribers.
We have received many requests to join the Animal Influenza
Situation Update distribution list. While we highly value the growing
interest and wider distribution, it is hard for us to manage the
increasing list of contacts. We would therefore appreciate if the
contacts in each organisation/country could forward the document to
all relevant people within their organisation/country.
Please note: The current maps still display only cases of
H5 highly pathogenic avian influenza and do not yet cover
all relevant cases/outbreaks of Animal Influenza in different
species, as we are in a transition phase towards the
production of new maps representing relevant animal
influenza cases/outbreaks. The new maps will be included
in this Animal Influenza Update in a couple of weeks.
The EMPRES Animal Influenza is prepared by the EMPRES (Emergency
Prevention Programme for Transboundary Animal Diseases) / GLEWS
(Global Early Warning for Major Animal Diseases, including Zoonoses)
team of the Animal Production and Health Division of the Food and
Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
Additional information on influenza cases/outbreaks can be found in
EMPRES-i (http://empres-i.fao.org/).
Electronic version of the maps can be found on the website at
http://www.fao.org/ag/againfo/programmes/en/empres/maps_new.html
For further information about the EMPRES Animal Influenza Situation
Update please contact FAO AGAH/GLEWS team at [email protected]
FAO compiles information from numerous sources (FAO
representatives or country missions, FAO reports, OIE,
official government sources, European Commission, FAO
reference centres, laboratories and FAO collaborators) and
produces these composite maps in a representative effort
to provide full and accurate information.
FAO welcomes information to clarify disease or infection
occurrence in areas that have not been properly depicted
(with supporting documentation to make the required
changes based on FAO validation and verification
procedures). If you want to share relevant information on
animal diseases events with FAO AGAH/GLEWS please send
messages to [email protected]
MAP: The maps represent occurrences of confirmed or
suspected cases of H5 and H5N1 reported over the last 30
days (1st map) and last six months (2nd map). H5 cases
are
represented
for
countries
where
N-subtype
characterization is not being performed for secondary cases
or when laboratory results are still pending. The original
data have been collected and aggregated at the most
detailed administrative level.
TEXT: The text represents information obtained within the
past 14 days indicating the original date of reporting or
publishing of the information. Sources of information are
included for easy reference. FAO does not guarantee the
accuracy of information of reports included in this update.
TABLES: The outbreaks presented in the tables are
referring to the observation date (or the earliest clinical
date known) and reported date of the first and last
occurrence of an outbreak/case in a country. The affected
populations refer to all populations ever affected. The
reported date is the date when the occurrence of a disease
has been confirmed by an official source. Outbreak of
disease or infection means the occurrence of one or more
cases of a disease or an infection in an epidemiological
unit.
