I am posting in the general health forum purely for a medical perspective (not political!) on how this potential threat could affect our general health and for those who had covid and have a weaker immune system.


I wonder how it will affect humans, and if in the same way as covid’s blood clotting issues, as an example.

The first human cases of H5N8 influenza virus infection were reported in Russia in December 2020: Seven poultry farm workers tested positive when they participated in a response operation to contain an H5N8 AIV outbreak (15). Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the H5N8 virus sequenced from the human cases also belonged to clade of the H5 phylogeny. Therefore, the global spread of AIVs, particularly the H5N8 subtype, has become a major concern to poultry farming and wildlife security but, critically, also to global public health.
