Frequent cases of bird flu in Asia have forced the UN experts to warn about the serious danger of the mutated virus.
The UN World Food and Agriculture Organisation underlines the high level of risk associated with the appearance of the mutated virus in the countries where its occurrence was considered impossible. The virus has already caused the disease of dozens of people, and in some cases, the doctors could not cure the disease. In Cambodia, 8 people have died because of the virus since the beginning of the year.
The mutated H5N1 virus can already be found in Europe today, whereto it was brought by migratory birds. The dangerous virus has been detected in Romania and Bulgaria.
The main reason for the doctors’ concern is the possible inefficiency of existing drugs against the mutated virus. And if the fears come true, a large-scale epidemic could lead to a significant number of victims.
