Bird flu infection spreads quickly in birds such as chicken, turkey, peacock and duck. First, birds are believed to be the main cause of bird flu. But sometimes it happens from person to person as well. There is also a risk of death on a human being who is suffering from avian influenza.
Symptoms of Bird Flu: Difficulty in breathing, always having phlegm, headache, running nose, swelling of the throat, pain in muscles, feeling like vomiting, pain in lower abdomen etc.
How it spreads to humans: In humans, the disease is spread by being very close to chickens or infected birds. In humans, the bird flu virus enters through the eyes, nose and mouth. For this reason, the defence is that the infected birds stay away from the dead birds especially. Try not to go into the area with infection. Demand and avoid eating eggs.
