The State Veterinary Service has denied the information spread by some mass media that the bird flu virus can be destroyed at the temperature of 165C, the Service `s press-release told Trend.
The statement says that this sort of unverified information only spreads panic among the population.
The bird flu virus is capable to survive for 4 days under water, 30 days in ordinary conditions, 6-12 months in low temperatures and about 3 months in the bird dung. However, it can be destroyed at the temperature of 65-70 degrees C for 5 minutes and at 100C even faster. Besides, it can be destroyed by different disinfection substances.
These conclusions have been achieved not only in Azerbaijan but in all the research centers of the world, the statement said.
