H5N8 Avian Influenza does not pose a risk to public health. According to European agencies there have been no cases of human infections, except for three mild cases in Russia. Dr. Silva Bino shows signs and emphasizes that the risk to public health is low.
'The signs have been quite mild for three cases in Russia, with signs of flu, with colds, a little cough, with a little fever, but not severe forms. So H5N8 does not cause severe forms. And unlike H5N1 or other bird flu that is transmitted to humans, the risk to public health is and remains low. '
In the interview for A2, she advises the population to cook poultry food or products well before consuming them.
'All poultry products can be used, it is enough that they are cooked properly according to all the rules. So it does not pose a danger to people '.
After the three outbreaks identified in Albania, specifically in Bujan, Fushë Krujë and Dajt, the epidemiological investigation has started, and the infected birds will be killed. The important thing according to experts is that this virus is generally not transmitted from person to person.
