The first person to die of H5N2 Bird Flu has raised tension, the world could be in such danger!


Ever since the news of the death of a human being due to the bird flu caused by the H5N2 virus has come, the concerns of scientists have increased. Efforts are being made to prevent it from becoming a global health emergency. 


H5N2 Bird Flu First Human Death: Bird flu is also called avian influenza or H5N2 in scientific language, it is a type of viral infection that affects birds. However, some subtypes of the virus can make humans sick too, causing breathing problems, cough, body aches, and sore throat. This infection can also kill a person. This is the reason why when bird flu spreads, it is advisable to stay away from poultry farms.

Human death due to H5N2

The World Health Organization confirmed on June 5 that a 59-year-old Mexican man died of H5N2. This is the first human death recorded due to this virus. The man who died on April 24 had no exposure to poultry. In such a situation, the worrying thing is how did this virus get transmitted.

Why are scientists worried?

The deaths in Mexico suggest that the virus can spread to humans without the traditional route (poultry exposure). Avian influenza primarily affects birds, but some strains, such as H5N1, can infect humans and cause severe respiratory illnesses.

prevent it from spreading worldwide

Avian influenza is a zoonotic disease, which means it can spread from animals to humans. It can spread worldwide through the poultry industry and international travel, making the disease an international health emergency.

Although human cases of avian influenza are rare, the ability of the virus to adapt and spread among humans is a serious public health concern. This virus's ability to transmit represents a new level of transmissibility or virulence not previously seen in the region. The human deaths in Mexico highlight the need to remain vigilant about the dangers posed by zoonotic diseases to prevent widespread disease.
