    MOSCOW, August 22 (RIA Novosti) - There have been no confirmed human cases of bird flu in Russia as of August 22, the Consumer Rights Protection Service said in a press release Monday.

    An outbreak of the highly pathogenic bird flu A (H5N1) occurred in poultry and wild fowl in Russia's Far East and Siberia earlier this month, but no instances of animal-to-human transmission have been detected so far. In some of the places hit by the outbreak, the quarantine has been lifted, with no new H5N1 cases reported for several days.
