"Politico": The United States has not learned lessons from the Corona pandemic and is not prepared for an outbreak of "bird flu"

The newspaper "Politico" reported that the healthcare system in the United States is not prepared for the possibility of an outbreak of "bird flu" among humans, noting that the country has not learned lessons from the Corona virus pandemic.

The newspaper wrote, quoting representatives of American hospitals: “Lessons have not been learned from the Covid pandemic. At a time when bird flu is spreading among livestock, hospital administrations say that the health system will not be prepared if the virus, which infects dairy cattle in the United States, spreads among humans.” ".

Experts point out that the risk of transmission of the infection to humans is currently low, but it is difficult to predict when it will mutate and after it poses a danger to the population, and may pose a greater danger than “Covid-19,” pointing to the fact that there are already cases of bird flu among livestock in nine countries. American states.

The US Food and Drug Administration had previously announced the discovery of inactive parts of the bird flu virus in pasteurized milk that infected herds of dairy cows in eight states.

According to scientists, there is no evidence to indicate that people can become infected with the virus by consuming pasteurized, heat-treated, or properly cooked foods.

The Food and Drug Administration is testing samples across the country, but officials have not said the source of the positive samples.

While the virus has caused mass mortality in wild birds and other animal populations — even killing thousands of sea lions in South America — the most common symptoms in dairy cows included a reduced amount of milk produced and a decreased appetite, according to the department.
