    On the territory of the Bolshechernigovsky district of the Samara region, an outbreak of bird flu was identified. It is reported by the Samara Veterinary Association.

    At the moment, the outbreak is episodic and has been identified within the boundaries of the village, but the danger lies in the fact that a non-passenger railway station is located five kilometers away, which is a potential source of the spread of the virus, which poses a threat to humans.

    As the portal specifies, outbreaks of bird flu have also been identified in the neighboring Orenburg region and Bashkortostan. The last outbreak of bird flu in the Samara region happened in the autumn of last year in the village of Belozerki, Krasnoyarsk region.
