The chicken flu virus will cause the next flu pandemia
The chicken flu virus will cause the next flu pandemia - such is the forecast of the director general of the World Health Organisation, Dr.Lee Jong-wook now in Moscow, made to journalists on Wednesday. "The expected flu virus will be like the chicken flu one", he said. Dr.Lee recalled that the chicken flu has already made humans fall ill and even caused lethal outcomes. "One should not forget about the past flu pandemic outbreaks - Spanish flu in 1919 and Asian flu in 1970. They had their precursors", the WHO director general said. "Now, too, the spread of the chicken flu in many countries is a precursor. It is only a matter of time when the virus mutates and causes a global pandemic outbreak", he added. It is so far impossible to say what strains the new virus will have, Dr.Lee noted. "We cannot now set about developing a vaccine because we do not know what strain of the virus we are going to have this year", the WHO chief said.
