Humans are at risk from bird flu

While the world is focused on the emerging COVID-19 and its variants, the most recent of which is Omicron, which is spreading at breakneck speed and causing significant increases in infections in most countries, the World Organization for Animal Health has announced that bird flu, which is currently being spread in Asia and Europe, is more capable of spreading among humans due to its numerous strains.

The situation is more complex and hazardous this time, according to Monique Elwett, Director-General of the World Health Organization, since more strains and mutations are arising, making it more difficult to keep track of them.
