"A superbug that causes infections from large, boil-like lesions to hemorrhagic pneumonia and, in rare cases, flesh-eating disease is poised to "emerge in force" across Canada, a new report warns. "

Dnuhh, what?? How does no one hear about this? SOO confused, I don't comprehend.

Hemmorhagic diseases are -kind of- a big issue.

A quick update:

Bird flu may spread from Indonesia,Egypt,Nigeria-FAO

The deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu may spread from Indonesia, Egypt and Nigeria to other countries as it continues to circulate in Africa and Asia, the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said on Monday.

"The risk of a pandemic will be with us for the foreseeable future," said the United Nations body's chief veterinary officer Joseph Domenech, reiterating calls for global efforts to contain the disease.

Egypt, Indonesia and Nigeria have not been able to contain the disease, effectively making them reservoirs of the virus for possible spread to other countries, the FAO said in a statement.


Despite fewer outbreaks this year, UN agency warns bird flu still threatens lives

Also, FYI - Most new diseases are hemorraghic, or have a hemorraghic component - apparently related to their common ability to infect fibroblasts, and cause "abnormal" wound healing (also called tissue "remodelling").

While this sounds good n all, it isnt 4 commerical use and the govt has 13 million doses which is good for 6.5 million people because it goes in two doses. It has a limited effect too=[ So.... wht im wondering is the govt just gonna give it to their ppl and their families and who is gonna get it? Cuz we have like 300 milion ppl here so how is that small amount gonna help?

Here is the link:
So check it out and have a heads up on what's going on. I bet the govt is doing their own secret hoarding I wouldnt be too surprized. Caringly yours,
