Nordic Action Against Avian Flu

Published onsdag 26 oktober 2005 kl 11.47

Against the background of the Avian flu threat, the Nordic countries have agreed to work together in case of major disasters and crises.

The prime ministers of the five countries took part in a meeting of the Nordic Council Tuesday in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik.

Joint production of a vaccine against bird flu was discussed, and the Nordic health and welfare ministers are to agree on more concrete measures at a meeting next month.

Meanwhile, the Swedish Board of Agriculture is toning down Tuesday’s EU warning against eating raw egg products.

Because of the Avian flu risk, the European Food Safety Authority recommended consumers to avoid eating anything with raw eggs or insufficiently cooked poultry.

But the Swedish Board of Agriculture says this is an over-reaction, and points out that even the European Food Safety Authority admits there is no evidence that bird flu can be spread to people through food.
