Avian Flu Pathogens with 40% Kill Rate in Humans Found at U.S. Biolab in Ukraine, Russia Claims
Russia accused the U.S. of experimenting with Avian flu pathogens at a U.S. biolab in Ukraine with up to a 40% lethality rate in humans.
The Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD) released a statement on Friday claiming it has recovered deadly samples of avian flu virus strains “with high potential for epidemic spread” at a U.S. biolab in the Kherson region of Ukraine.
The task force of the Russian Ministry of Defence together with officers of the Federal Security Service and Rosselkhoznadzor have confirmed the collection and certification of avian influenza virus strains with a high potential for epidemic spread and the ability to cross the species barrier, particularly the H5N8 strain, whose lethality in human transmission can reach 40%. Remember that 1% of new coronavirus infections result in death.
