H5N8, now found in humans, has been found in Russia, Europe, China, West Asia and North African countries in recent months. However, it has been found in domestic birds. In addition, bird flu has been reported in H5N1, H7N9 and H9N2.
However, Popova Rosia told 24 State TV that there were no signs of the virus being transmitted from humans to humans.
The infection was found in seven workers at a poultry farm in southern Russia. These cases were reported when the virus broke out in December. Their samples were collected and separated by scientists. “They are recovering well,” Popova said.
Bird flu is transmitted directly from live or dead chickens. Therefore, it is considered safe to eat properly cooked food.
Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during bird flu. At the same time, restrictions are being imposed on the trade of birds and imports are being stopped.
