An additional 39,600,000 vaccines will be sent to the southern regions in Russia hit by bird flu
An additional 39,600,000 vaccines will be sent to the southern regions in Russia hit by bird flu, an Emergency Situation Ministry spokesman said Monday. The ministry representative said about 16 million vaccines had already been sent to 12 regions, and 8,295,903 fowl had been vaccinated since March 10, including 82,387 birds in the last 24 hours. The potentially lethal H5N1 strain of the bird flu virus returned to southern Russia, a stopover for migrating birds, in February following outbreaks last year. A massive vaccination campaign was subsequently launched at local poultry farms in March in a bid to prevent an epidemic. Over 1.3 million birds have died of bird flu or been culled in Russia in three outbreaks of bird flu since July 2005, but no human cases of the virus have been diagnosed in Russia.
