The Osoto virus, which hit several European lines, has now reached Denmark. So far there are no reports of cases in Sweden, but the virus can also affect the Swedish population is inconceivable.

The virus was discovered in Europe at the beginning of the millennium and has since spread to the north. About 25,000 reported thugs have died in Germany this year, the Danish news agency RICHARD reported.

The virus can reach Sweden unlikely, but so far no cases have been found.

"We have not looked so carefully, it's hard if you do not have indications, but if you find dead star stars, you can analyze them," says Anders Lindström, an insect researcher at the Swedish Veterinary Medicine Agency (SVA).

Comfortable weather

He thought that the path of the virus throughout northern Europe enjoyed the warm weather.

"With the summer gone, I guess it could pop up anywhere in Sweden if conditions are the right ones, but you can usually guess South Sweden as the first station," says Anders Lindström.

Bird virus, which is transmitted to birds through mosquitoes, and above all, housewives, can also kill people. In most cases you do not get any problems, but some can get really sick.

"Most do not get any bigger problems, but some can get pretty bad, so it looks like you can get some sort of meningitis, meningitis," says Anders Lindström.

No need to worry

According to Lindström, it is not easy to get rid of the virus because it is difficult to control both birds and mosquitoes.

"You have to be aware that it is protecting mosquitoes against mosquito bites with mosquito repellent or mosquitoes," he says, but believes there is nothing to worry about.

"Carbon stars may be concerned, there is no big health problem in Europe, but it can hurt the bird population," says Anders Lindström.
