The usutu virus, which has hit several columns in Europe, has now reached Denmark. So far, there are no reports of cases in Sweden, but the virus can also affect the Swedish population unexpectedly.

The virus was discovered in Europe at the turn of the millennium and since then it has spread further to the north. It is reported that about 25,000 bullies have died in Germany this year, reporting to the Danish Ritzau news agency.

The virus does not reach Sweden is unlikely, but to date no cases were found.

"We have not looked so carefully. It's hard if you have no signs, but if you have a dead bullet star you can analyze them," said Anders Lindström, an insect researcher at the Swedish Veterinary Medicine Agency (SVA).

Favorable weather

The virus path across northern Europe is believed to have benefited from hot weather.

"With the summer that I went, I think that it could come anywhere in Sweden if there are the correct conditions, but you may usually have the guesses and s from Sweden as the first stop, "said Anders Lindström.

The bird virus, which is transmitted to birds by mosquitoes and, above all, housewives can also kill people. Most often you do not have any problems, but some can really get sick.

"Most do not have any more problems, but some can be quite bad, it's like. You can have some type of encephalitis, meningitis," said Anders Lindström .

You do not need to worry

According to Lindström, it's not easy to get rid of the virus because it's hard to control the birds and mosquitoes.

"You must have a general awareness that this protects you from mosquito bites with mosquito nets that resist than mosquitoes," he said, but he believes there is no major concern.

"The carbon stars may be worried. There is no big health problem in Europe, but it can go to the bird population," said Anders Lindström.
