Russia's chief doctor said Thursday it would be incorrect to call human cases of bird flu in Turkey an epidemic
Russia's chief doctor said Thursday it would be incorrect to call human cases of bird flu in Turkey an epidemic. Gennady Onishchenko said at a business lunch hosted by popular Russian daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta that it was impossible to calculate the disease's epidemic threshold because the disease was not transmitted from human to human. Onishchenko said disease thresholds existed for every region, adding that about 60,000 people a day came down with the flu in Moscow, according to calculations based on average figures for the last 10 years. However, he said an epidemic was when the infection rate exceeded the norm by four times, but questioned whether 15 cases of a previously unrecorded disease in Turkey could be called an epidemic.
