Russia claims to have infected a species of bird flu virus in humans. According to the BBC, a bird flu strain (H5N6) has been found in the bodies of six workers at a ranch in the south of the country. A large part of the Russian medical community frowned at this claim. Because the corona has not yet been properly dealt with, if a new infectious disease occurs on it, it will be a problem to manage. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has refused to comply with Russia’s demands. According to them, the issue of bird flu infection in human body is being investigated. However, they did not dismiss this demand.
Russian television on Saturday quoted Anna Popova, a consumer and human rights activist in the country, as saying that researchers at the Vector Laboratory had collected genetic material from the six infected people. “There was an outbreak of bird flu on the farm last December,” he said. Then several days ago the infection also occurred in the human body. The news is being given only after the results are fully confirmed. However, Popova said that although the workers were affected, they did not show any symptoms. They are believed to have been infected from the farm.
“Hu has already been given all the information about the bird flu infection,” Popova said. However, Popova claimed that “there were no signs of infection in anyone except those six people.”
However, Hu declined to comment immediately. A spokesman for the agency said: “Once confirmed, this is the first time that H5N7 has been transmitted to humans.”
