“Countries don’t own their viral samples any more than they own the birds in their skies,” said Andrew C. Weber, who oversaw biological defense programs at the Pentagon during the Obama administration. “Given that this flu virus is a potential threat to humanity, not sharing it immediately with the global network of W.H.O. laboratories like C.D.C. is scandalous.

The flu vaccines are BS anyway and full of mercury. You are taking a risk every me you take one not to mention the chance that it is even effective is around 10-15%.
