The danger of the spread of the bird flu virus H5N6 is not high

The first person who found the virus of the bird flu H5N6, was in isolation, and the spread of the disease is not necessary to fear, Chinese doctors said.

The patient, an 49-year-old man from Sichuan Province, died in the hospital. According to confirmed research data, he was a carrier of the H5N6 avian influenza strain, which was infected by poultry. People who have been in contact with this person have no signs of the disease.

Local vets found carriers of the virus on the poultry farm, as a result of 1300 chickens were slaughtered to prevent possible transmission of the strain to humans.

“This is clearly an isolated case at the moment,” says the World Health Organization. - The patient's direct contacts are under control, none of the people have developed symptoms similar to those of the flu. We can say that at the moment the risk of the spread of the virus is minimal. "
