In Russia, the first case of human infection with bird flu virus has been reported. Anna Popova, head of the public health watchdog Rospotrebnadzor, said seven people working in a poultry from the H5N8 strain (A-H5N8) of avian influenza A virus have been found infected. This information has been given to the World Health Organization, WHO.

However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has not yet responded to the incident on the request of the news agency Reuters. The virus (H5N8 strain) was found only in poultry in Russia, as well as in Europe, China, North Africa and West Asia. This is the first time this virus has been detected in humans.

Popova reported that seven employees of a poultry farm in the south of Russia have been isolated after being infected. The bird flu was wreaked havoc in December last year in this area. People coming in contact with the infected are being identified. He said that all the seven people are feeling fine and are in control of the situation.

Other variants of avian influenza include H5N1 (H5N1), H7N9 (H5N1) and H9N2 (H5N1) ... Popova reported that it has been several days since humans were infected with the H5N8 strain (A-H5N8). But now after a thorough investigation of the investigation results, this is being told.
