After Corona now danger of bird flu has started
Chilean health officials think that birds or sea mammals can spread this bird flu virus to humans, but so far no way for people to get it from each other has been found.
How risky is the bird flu
Let us tell you that early this year, a 9-year-old girl in Ecuador was found to have bird flu. Health experts all over the world said that there is a very low chance that the virus will spread to humans, but vaccine companies have already started making shots for the bird flu.
Before it was found in Chile, the first human case of H3N8 bird flu was found in China. In a statement, the Chinese Health Department said that there isn’t much chance that it will spread to other people. Health experts say that it can spread to people if they touch chickens or crows that have the virus.
Officials in China say that this is the third time that the virus that causes bird flu has been found in people in the country. People who have the virus can also have a fever and a lot of other symptoms.
