Influenza Virus Case Study Week 7
You are an epidemiologist at the state health department. A poultry farm in the south has reported a sudden and significant death rate among poultry at the facility. In addition, just a few hours later, you receive reports of 6 persons hospitalized for severe flu-like illness, and 2 are in critical condition – all work at a local bakery. Subsequent investigation reveals that the infection of poultry is an influenza virus but is limited to the southern farm versus widespread in the state. Rapid testing on the 6 ill people also shows infection with influenza A, but the exact strain won’t be known for several days. The two critically ill patients have died. The farmer of the poultry farm is now reporting flu-like symptoms, and another 4 bakery workers are ill. Hint: You must define what type of influenza virus in order to answer the questions.
• Who is considered exposed to the virus?
• Who would you isolate and for how long?
• Who would you quarantine and for how long?
• What other control measures would you take at this point?
