Bird Flu Symptoms

With bird flu spreading throughout Europe and the Middle East, and with repeated warnings that it will hit North America, many people are concerned about the symptoms of the disease.

 

Here’s what BUPA, the British private medical care provider, says:

Human flu symptoms are:

 

fever

cough

sore throat

muscle aches

conjunctivitis

 

Cases of bird flu are more likely to cause breathing problems and pneumonia, and can be fatal.

 

A factsheet from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises:

 

Symptoms of avian influenza in humans have ranged from typical human influenza-like symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat, and muscle aches) to eye infections, pneumonia, severe respiratory diseases (such as acute respiratory distress), and other severe and life-threatening complications. The symptoms of avian influenza may depend on which virus caused the infection.
