Migratory Birds Avian Flu Threat
After confirmed cases of bird flu in Russia, Swedish officials are concerned that the virus may already have reached Sweden.
A fear which has prompted the Ministry of Agriculture to reassess the risk profile.
Veterinary officials say poultry south of Moscow have been infected with the H5N1 strain of bird flu, unsettling for Swedes as migratory birds pass over that area on their way to Southern Sweden.
New guidelines and strategies to prevent the spread of the virus will be presented during the next few days.
Meanwhile, Swedish pharmacies say Tamiflu and Relenza, the two drugs used against both influenza and avian flu are in good supply, putting rumours over a shortage to rest.
