World Health Organization announces the discovery of bird flu in seven human samples in Russia

The World Health Organization announced that the national contact points concerned with international health regulations in the Russian Federation had informed them of the discovery of bird flu in seven human samples for the first time that bird flu was detected in humans.

The organization said in a statement today that positive clinical samples were collected from poultry farm workers who participated in the response process to contain the outbreak of bird flu detected in a poultry farm in Astrakhan Oblast in Russia. Laboratory confirmation of the seven samples was carried out by the State Research Center for Virology and Biotechnology. The age of the seven cases between 29 to 60 years.

The organization said that the cases remained without symptoms throughout the follow-up period (several weeks), and that nasopharyngeal swabs were collected for follow-up during the medical observation period, and they tested negative for bird flu.

The international organization confirmed that no clear clinical manifestations have been reported from any farm workers under medical supervision, their family members or other close contacts of the seven cases.

The World Health Organization noted that based on current information, the risk of human-to-human transmission is low, indicating that these cases do not change the organization's recommendation regarding public health measures and monitoring of human and animal influenza.
