An outbreak of bird flu has hit the Astrakhan Region in southern Russian, but quarantine has not yet been imposed
An outbreak of bird flu has hit the Astrakhan Region in southern Russian, but quarantine has not yet been imposed, a local official said Wednesday. According to the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Oversight, about 200 dead swans were found last week in the estuary of the Volga River. The Russian Ministry of Agriculture has confirmed bird flu among dead swans, saying that tests conducted independently by two Russian laboratories had found the H5 strain in the blood of some dead swans. The H5N1 subtype, which has been the source of particular concern in Asia, is the most dangerous for people. The spokesman said that the regional authorities had banned duck hunting and tightened veterinary control at poultry farms nine miles from the place where the dead birds were found
