What were the symptoms of Hong Kong flu?

"Hong Kong Flu" was a strain of H3N2 influenza virus and was an epidemic in 1968-1969 that was the first known outbreak of H3N2 at the time. It began in Hong Kong but spread internationally and killed approximately 1 million people worldwide. There are still other strains of H3N2 circulating under other names today.Hong Kong Flu is often confused with the current H5N1, Avian "bird" flu, and the symptoms are the same, except Hong Kong flu was much less deadly than Avian flu is in humans.The symptoms of Hong Kong flu were those of most any influenza infection: high fever, joint pain, muscle aches, fatigue, malaise, runny nose, and severe cough. In addition, a common symptom was eye irritation and redness(aka conjunctivitis). The eye irritation symptom is also in common with the Avian flu, and that is partly why they get confused with each other. Also, Hong Kong flu was sometimes spread by birds, as can be the Avian flu, but Hong Kong flu spread very easily and quickly, more like the H1N1/09 swine flu and unlike the Avian flu, which, thankfully (since approximately 50 - 60 % of those infected with "bird flu" die), it did not spread from human to human easily at all.Other strains of H3N2 influenza virus still circulate today, one strain is known as the Fujian Flu from an outbreak in that area more recent than the Hong Kong Flu. It is also known as "Perth-like" flu and many of the seasonal flu vaccines over recent years have included a strain of H3N2 Perth-like virus.The H3N2 Perth-like influenza virus is one of the three types of flu in the vaccines for the 2011-2012 Flu season in the Northern Hemisphere.

What was the concern with avian flu recently?

People involved in epidemiology have continued to be concerned about the Avian Flu because it has such a high mortality rate. In humans, the mortality rate is as high as 50%. Luckily, it is not spread from human to human. It has also been a concern during the H1N1/09 Pandemic Swine Flu because of the potential for extremely high death rates if the Avian Flu would mutate with the Swine Flu to make it able to be passed easily from human to human like the pandemic flu does. This was of special concern since some of the genetic material in this novel swine flu is derived from Avian Flu viruses.
