Bird flu situation is stable in Russia
Bird flu situation is stable in Russia, and no new cases have been registered after a recent outbreak of bird flu in the Moscow region, Russia’s chief sanitary doctor Gennady Onishchenko said after a telephone conference on Monday. The most important thing is that there are no bird flu cases among humans, the head of the Rospotrebnadzor food quality watchdog stressed. An outbreak of bird flu in the southern Krasnodar region has also been stopped, he said. Samples taken from dead wild ducks in that region did not confirm the H5N1 strain of bird flu. As for Kalmykia, poultry deaths there were caused by Newcastle disease virus, he added. “Such is the situation in the country at the present moment,” Onishchenko said. However, as spring has come, migratory birds will soon begin arriving in Russia. That is why healthcare establishments must be on alert, he stressed.
