Bird Flu Survivor Recounts her ‘hell

A woman from Thailand who was infected by H5N1 bird flu virus and managed to survive recounts her story of being 'in hell'.//

27 years old Pranom Thongchan, of Srisomboon, central Thailand, tells her horrific story on how she watched first her chickens dying... Then it was her niece who coughed blood as she passed away in her mother's arms. And just after a few days the virus attacked her sister, the girl's mother, and she was dead. After this it was her turn to fall ill with the flu. She lay still in the hospital with headache on drips and oxygen for six days.

In an interview she said: 'I thought 'what's happening to me now? I can't stand this for a week. It's too much torture,'' she added: 'I felt dizzy and faint. My hands turned pale. It seemed like there was no blood in my body. The next morning I hardly had the energy to walk. I had to crawl out of bed, and I felt as if my body was shriveling.'

She was kept in isolation unit where she heard how her sister had died in her province which was a far distance from Bangkok and suffered in quite agony and awaited her own death

'By that time I was so weak I could not get up,' she said. 'I felt like my heart was going to stop beating. I felt so exhausted I did not have the energy to speak or pay attention to anything. I felt as if I had been running for days or years and I could not breathe.'

It took over eight days before she started making some recovery. Now after three months, Mrs. Thongchan has fully recovered and is able to talk about ‘hell to newspapers.

Bird flu has killed 60 people out of the 12 who suffered from it in South East Asia. The virus is now threatening to become a world epidemic.
