Wind — the main threat of the global flu epidemic

Deadly bird flu virus can be transmitted to the wind, do not exclude the scientists. According to New Scientist, usually people get through direct contact. But, apparently, the wind can carry the virus.

Dutch scientists from the National Institute of Public Health and Environment investigated an outbreak strain of H7N7 in poultry on farms in 2003. As a result, 89 people were infected, and one died. Computer modeling showed that the wind rose explains why different strains of influenza reached different farms.

H5N1 — the most dangerous strain. Since 2003, he has killed 360 people out of 610 infected. The fact that a similar strain — H7N7 — is able to move through the air, and suggests the possibility of regarding superpatogennogo strain.

If this is confirmed, then the world is in danger, say epidemiologists. By the way, it is known that the FMD virus is transferred to the wind for long distances. But it is easier to influenza virus and produced in large quantities of infected animals. Most likely, the influenza virus clings to the particles. In particular, the system is running, if the particles get into the air feces of sick birds.
