Almost 715,000 birds have died from bird flu in Russia since July 2005
Almost 715,000 birds have died from bird flu in Russia since July 2005 or been culled in an effort to stem the spread of the virus, Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry said Thursday. The first wave of avian flu swept through six Russian regions of the Volga and Urals federal districts from July 21 to September 29, 2005. The second outbreak was registered on October 14, 2005 in five regions of the Central, Volga, Urals and Siberian federal districts. The ministry said it was currently controlling the situation in the south of Russia to prevent the virus, also potentially deadly to people, from spreading. Controls in other Russian regions have been lifted following the end of the standard 21-day quarantine period, the ministry added. There were no registered cases of bird flu among people, the ministry said.
