Here's a VERY interesting and timely one.
H5N1 was first discovered in Scotland, in 1959.
Which means H5N1 has been spreading around the world, and mutating, for 46 years, at least.
A scientist identified only as Dr JE Wilson, of the Veterinary Laboratory in Lasswade, outside Edinburgh, is recorded as having worked on the case -
sending the chicken to Addlestone, where the strain was medically isolated so it could be used in experiments. The Scottish H5N1 has been used in
experiments, named "chicken/Scotland/1959". ...No medical agency in Scotland or England was able to give many details - except to say that the
disease has become heartier and deadlier since it was found in Scotland. There is no sign of Dr Wilson. The Moredun Research Institute at Penicuik
said that it had no record of him
and that he was likely to have passed away."
