KUALA LUMPUR, 3 April (Bernama) -- Menteri Kesihatan Datuk Seri Liow Tiong

Lai mengesahkan tiada kes selesema burung jenis H7N9 dilaporkan dalam negara

setakat ini namun kerajaan mengambil langkah berjaga-jaga bagi mengelakkan wabak

itu daripada menular.

Ketika ditemui Bernama, beliau berkata wabak itu masih lagi merupakan kes

terpencil dan sehingga kini hanya dilaporkan berlaku di negara China.

Bagaimanapun, beliau berkata sebagai langkah berjaga-jaga kerajaan telah

meningkatkan pemantauan dan mendapatkan panduan daripada Pertubuhan Kesihatan

Sedunia (WHO) berkaitan wabak itu.

"Kita juga telah meningkatkan langkah berjaga-jaga di semua pintu masuk

negara bagi memastikan bahawa pemantauan penghidap atau mana-mana wabak penyakit

dari luar negara, dapat kita halang dan terjaga dengan rapi," katanya.

Liow berkata simptom wabak berkenaan hampir sama dengan wabak H1N1 iaitu

penghidapnya antara lain akan mengalami sakit perut dan demam panas

berpanjangan.

LIOW-H7N9 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

Namun begitu beliau berkata wabak H7N9 adalah lebih berbahaya dan serius

kerana risiko kematian adalah 60 peratus lebih tinggi berbanding H1N1 yang

hanya 0.4 peratus.

Justeru beliau menasihatkan orang ramai melakukan saringan di hospital atau

klinik jika mempunyai simptom di atas.

Pada Ahad, Bernama melaporkan bahawa China telah mengesahkan terdapat dua

kematian serta satu kes akut pertama H7N9 yang dilaporkan berlaku di negara itu.

Laporan itu menyebut bahawa setakat ini masih tiada vaksin bagi mencegah

virus H7N9.
