H5N1 Bird Flu Migrates West Toward Europe
August 1, 2005
Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry said bird flu in the Novosibirsk region had killed 2,382 poultry, including 127 since Sunday morning.
Mass death of poultry was registered in 18 settlements of the Dovolensky, Kupinsky, Zdvinsky and Chistoozerny districts. ....
"Poultry death cases were also registered in the Omsk region and the Altai territory. In the Omsk region, 450 poultry died, and in the Altai territory - 300, but the diagnosis has not been formally confirmed in these two provinces.
The above descriptions of confirmed and suspected H5N1 in Russia indicate H5N1 is radiating out from the Chany Lake region. The locations in the Novosibisrk region are to the east, south, and west of the Lake.
The Altai territory had already announced a quarantine and now there are suspect bird flu cases. It is southeast of Chany Lake and borders Kazkhstan, China and Mongolia.
The Omsk region is to the west of Novosibirsk and marks the western most region reported thus far. It appears that the birds will cross the Urals into Europe soon. The timing and location of the latest reports indicate H5N1 is alive and well in southern Siberia and flying toward warmer climates to the west and south.
