Avian influenza is a disease caused by influenza A viruses, of which there are several variants. This animal disease affects – as the name suggests – poultry, from chickens to waterfowl, and usually leads to the death of the animals. In individual cases, some variants can also be transmitted to humans and zoo animals. To date, approximately 1000 cases of avian influenza in humans have been reported worldwide. Of these, 20-50% died, depending on the pathogen subtype.

Therefore, in the food industry, special requirements are placed on air quality to prevent or at least greatly reduce the growth of microorganisms in manufacturing and storage areas.
Our immune system is like a personal bodyguard for our body. It is constantly busy fighting and keeping away viruses, bacteria and other pathogens from our environment.
