According to epidemiologist Rob Wallace, animal breeding is what will provoke the emergence of new deadly viruses. And the next one could kill a billion people. In addition, there have already been cases of human infection with a strain of bird flu.
In 2021, it turned out that seven people were infected with the H5N8 bird flu variant in Russia. And this was the first time that the virus passed from chickens to humans.
A few weeks ago, a similar thing happened in China. There, 48 residents have already been infected with the H5N6 strain. At the same time, it is known that more than half of them have already died. Most likely, the strain has mutated.
