In the future the Russians will increase the risk of Contracting atypical for the country fevers. This was reported by the Advisor to the Director Central research Institute of epidemiology, Viktor Maleyev, reports RIA Novosti.
According to experts, this situation is due to global warming, which on the territory of Russia is 2.5 times faster than the world average. This, in turn, contributes to the spread of mosquitoes and ticks that carry exotic diseases such as West Nile fever, Crimean-Congo fever and dengue fever.
Maleev said that such viruses are transmitted via insects, birds, and horses are for diseases a kind of “tanks”. Carriers can be not only tropical, but are common in the Russian latitudes mosquitoes. “They bite the bird-medium, then the person, but from person to person, as a rule, is not passed”, — he said.
According to forecasts, in the coming years, outbreaks of infections may be in the Central regions of European Russia and the steppe zone of southern Siberia. To prevent the spread of the southern fevers should monitor the mosquitoes and analyze the deaths of birds, said the epidemiologist.
