Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) A (H5N1) virus is widespread among wild birds, and the current outbreak has led to outbreaks in commercial poultry and backyard flocks. The virus has also been detected in several mammal species, although there is no evidence of ongoing spread from mammal to mammal. Sporadic human infections have been reported.
This webinar will get you up to speed on the current global landscape of H5N1, including recent outbreaks and what we know about detecting, treating, and preventing human infections with H5N1 virus.
Experts on the panel will also discuss the epidemiology of human cases of H5N1 and risk factors, antiviral treatments, and clinical management of patients infected with H5N1 virus.
