Bird Flu Pandemic – Coming to Russia This Summer?

A bird flu pandemic is highly probable in Russia this summer, said Gennady Onishchenko, chief of Rospotrebnadzor, Russia's consumer rights watchdog, according to a report from the Interfax news agency.

 

"The epicenter of the bird flu virus's pandemic strain formation has shifted to Russia," Onishchenko told a news conference on Tuesday.

 

Therefore, Rospotrebnadzor and other agencies' serious and successful work will largely determine when the pandemic strain strikes our planet, he said.

 

Due to unusually cold temperatures in the Southern Caspian region - in Iran and Turkey - and rather warm weather in southern Russia this year, migrating birds nested in unlikely places. "This explains early bird flu outbreaks in Dagestan and other locations in the Southern Federal District," Onishchenko said.

The Russian agriculture minister Aleksei Gordeyev said on Friday the Russian media was guilty of exaggerating bird flu scares. He said “this subject will be closed and forgotten in a week or two.” Earlier, eccentric Russian MP Aleksei Mitrofanov said that bird flu was invented by Americans who wanted to dominate the world’s poultry markets.
