‘Highly pathogenic’ bird flu has broken out in two Chinese provinces near Hubei since the beginning of the month as Beijing struggles to contain the novel coronavirus currently ravaging the country.

Nearly 2,000 fowl were killed by the H5N6 strain of avian influenza on a poultry farm in Sichuan Province, Chinese agricultural authority announced yesterday.

Just eight days earlier, 4,500 chickens were reported to have died of H5N1 virus in the province of Hunan.

Four outbreaks of H5N6 bird flu were also reported in western China’s Xinjiang in January alone.

The latest outbreak in Sichuan took place at a county called Xichong in Nanchong City, which is about 12 hours from Wuhan by car.

China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs reported that 1,840 out of the 2,497 domesticated birds on the farm were killed by the infectious viral illness.

Local authorities culled 2,261 birds as a result and safely disposed their carcasses – as well as those of the birds killed by the influenza – according to the notice.

The Ministry did not specify on which day the outbreak happened.

The Ministry on February 1 alerted an outbreak of H5N1 bird flu in Hunan Province, which borders Hubei.

The bug hit a chicken farm in the city of Shaoyang, which is about a six-hour drive from Wuhan.

The Ministry said 4,500 out of the 7,850 chickens on the farm were killed and local officials had to cull 17,828 birds in a bid to contain the disease.

The bird flu has been classified as highly pathogenic because of the number of birds which have died from the disease.

There are lots of different strains of the virus.

Both H5N1 and H5N6 are among the four strains that have caused concerns of a bird-to-human transmission, according to NHS.

Although the disease doesn’t easily infect humans and is hard to spread from human to human, several people have caught it around the world and died.

The reports of the bird flu outbreaks come as China is straining all its resources in a bid to curb the fast-spreading novel coronavirus, which emerged in Wuhan late December and has killed at least 910 so far.

Nearly 100 people died of coronavirus yesterday on the deadliest day of the outbreak so far.

The death toll in mainland China rose by 97, taking the number of global fatalities to 910.

Another 3,062 cases were reported in China yesterday – an increase of 15 per cent compared to Saturday which put an end to a series of daily declines.

China said today that 27 foreigners had been infected with the virus in the country, including two of the country’s 908 deaths.

Two people have died outside mainland China, one in Hong Kong and the other in the Philippines, taking the global toll to 910.

More than 360 cases of the virus have been confirmed outside China, bringing the total to at least 40,531.

The fatality toll has passed the 774 people believed to have died in the 2002-03 SARS outbreak, another viral outbreak that originated in China.

The total of more than 40,000 confirmed cases of the new virus vastly exceeds the 8,098 sickened by SARS.

The rise in China’s death toll occurs as millions of people return to work today after an extended Lunar New Year holiday.

Hong Kong has reported seven more cases, raising its total to 36 after the virus spread at a family gathering attended by two relatives from mainland China.

Meanwhile in Japan, another 60 people on the Diamond Princess cruise ship were today confirmed to have the virus, taking the total to around 130.

Passengers on the ship have been confined to their cabins in a two-week lockdown with confirmed virus patients taken to hospital on the mainland.

World Health Organisation chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said there are tentative signs the virus was stabilising, but said there may be more infections abroad in people who have never travelled to China.

PLEASE HELP! The Shocking Thing I Saw In My Father’s Wardrobe (Should I Be Worried?)

Hello guys, the background behind this story is lengthy so to spare you the trouble I’ll jump straight to the point.

My father although he has his flaws is a very religious, and I dare say principled man in some aspects.

He never misses church service. Went to bible school.

At one point he was even a house fellowship leader. He prays and fast often.

So on this day I was standing in the doorway to my dads room.

He wanted to send me on an errand ”I think”, so he opened his wardrobe to get the money.

Immediately he opened his Wardrobe I saw a BAT…yes BAT hanging upside down right there in his wardrobe.

In shock, I jumped and shouted

”daddy see bat see bat !!!”.

Guess what he did. He simply smiled and gently closed his wardrobe.

I have never been this confused. I saw a bat hanging upside down in his Wardrop and all he did was smile and gently closed the door.

I don’t know what to make of it. I have already concluded, there is no way on earth this is from God.

Up until this time I have never seen a bat up close in real-time.

The closest I’ve been was to watch them on television. Contemplate how scared and confused I am now.

I picked up an excuse and ran out of the house to go stay with my relative. It’s been a week since I left, and I’m still too scared to go back.

What do you folks make of this? How can a man who prays and fast and attends bible school have a BAT in his wardrobe? WTF !!

What Do You Think I Should Do?

It’s winter season and bathing seems like a task, doesn’t it? Well, how long can you go without showering? A day or two maximum? Turns out, you are nowhere close to this man who hasn’t bathed in over six decades.

Amou Haji is an 87-year-old man and he hasn’t taken a bath in 67 years. He resides in Dejgah which is a village in the Kermanshah province of Iran. He also looks like the Biblical Moses who fell down a chimney.

He is always covered in ash and dirt. He hasn’t taken a bath for nearly seven decades because he is scared of water. He is of the belief that if he will bathe, he will fall ill.

What is even more unusual is that his diet consists of rotten meat of dead animals, especially porcupines. He also enjoys smoking but it is not tobacco he prefers. He likes to smoke animal feces out of a rusty pipe.

According to Tehran Times, Haji decided to live an isolated life after he went through some emotional setbacks in his youth.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off enemies but to keep him warm during winters.

Human beings are complicated creatures.
