Turkey awakens every day with a new case of bird flu. It already has fifteen people infected by the H5N1 virus, and authorities are investigating around sixty possible new cases. Yesterday the Turkish health minister admitted that the country had never confronted a crisis as serious as this one.

The majority of the cases in Turkey are in the eastern part of the country in a region with a Kurdish majority. The people infected are now being treated with Tamiflu. But the Turkish government has received serious accusations of negligence, and neighboring and European Union countries have blocked importations of birds.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has warned that bird flue could become endemic in Turkey and threaten neighboring countries. According to John Lubroth, an FAO expert in animal health, the virus could spread out despite the control measures that have been taken up to now.

In the meantime, in China, two people infected with the H5N1 virus died in recent days according to the Chinese government.
