Bird flu infection spreads from Asia to Europe

Recent reports of Bird flu outbreak in Russia was spread by infected migratory birds.

H5N1 avian influenza virus attack in the Chinese province for the past three months, and earlier outbreaks, which occurred in Southeast Asia, is moving towards European countries. Earlier reports of the virus// attacking Poultry in Russia and in Kazakhstan killing more than 6,000 birds and caused a suspected human infection.

The causes of the outbreak in Russia and Kazakhstan are caused by infection spread from China and the recent outbreak hints that the disease is moving towards Europe. Past outbreaks have centered on Southeast Asia and, more recently, parts of China.

Researchers also worry the outbreak may show that migratory birds are spreading the disease. Avian flu has struck in domestic poultry flocks close to Russia's large Chany Lake, a nesting ground for migrants. This spread of the virus by the migratory birds has caused great concern over the spread of the disease as it may lead to spread of the virus worldwide, as most of the migratory birds which fly from their breeding grounds in Oinghai, migrates to different destinations across Southeast Asia and India. The bird flu infections that occurred in Russia was found to be caused by the influenza virus H5N1 type.

Simba Chan, an expert on cranes at the Wild Bird Society of Japan in Tokyo, says it is unlikely that the disease has come to Russia from China, as birds do not usually fly in that direction at this time of year. Brown suggests instead that the new cases might have spread from undeclared poultry outbreaks in nearby China. But Juan Lubroth, head of infectious diseases for the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), says there is still cause for concern over migratory birds. The best thing to do, he says, would be to set up surveillance areas to randomly test wild bird populations. The FAO would need US$20-30 million for such a study, he says.
