This time in Corona, bird flu has been detected in human body in Russia. This is the first case of human infection with the virus. The country has informed the World Health Organization (WHO) about the matter. A statement from the WHO on Saturday confirmed the matter.
Russia’s health ministry says seven workers at a poultry farm have been diagnosed with the H5N7 avian flu virus.
An organization called Rospotrebnadzor is monitoring the health of the victims. The head of the agency, Anna Popova, said a total of seven people had been infected with the avian influenza virus. They are currently kept in isolation. Some of those who came in contact with them have also been monitored. If necessary, they will also be sent in isolation.
Health officials said the infected remained stable. So far there is no example of the bird flu virus spreading from one person to another. Yet Russia’s health ministry does not want to take any risks. The bird flu virus has been reported in several states in India in the last few months. Owners killed thousands of chickens in poultry farms in some states like Kerala, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan. As a result, the poultry business was hit hard.
According to the WHO, there is less risk of human-to-human transmission of bird flu. However, the virus can be spread by contact with infected chickens. Source: G News.
