Genetic Material of Virus From 1918 Flu Is Found
"One part of the answer is that the Spanish flu virus passed from birds to pigs and then to humans, a mode of transmission that is thought to produce
the most dangerous strains of influenza viruses."

"Darwyn Kobasa, a research scientist with the Public Health Agency of Canada, and lead author of the research, defended the decision to recreate one
of the most dangerous viruses in history."
"Many influenza virologists remain nervous about creating and experimenting with a reconstructed 1918 Spanish flu virus, an extremely dangerous virus
which disappeared from the world long ago"
"In 1918, an influenza pandemic started that became a global disaster ....There was a mild wave in the spring, but the very serious, lethal wave was
in the autumn to the winter..."

Scientists isolate genes that made 1918 flu lethal
"....researchers have identified a set of three genes that helped underpin the extraordinary virulence of the 1918 virus."
1918 flu resulted in current lineage of H1N1 swine influenza viruses, study says.
New virus "very unstable," more changes seen: expert
"Already it appears to more virulent than seasonal flu because it is killing younger people and it appears to have higher mortality than seasonal
flu, so it doesn't make sense to treat this like seasonal flu."
"Seasonal flu kills about 250,000 to 500,000 people annually with a fatality rate of less than 0.1 percent. A study published in Science on Monday
estimated that the new H1N1 flu virus has a case fatality ratio of 0.4 percent based on confirmed and suspected deaths."
Many Swine Flu Cases Have No Fever
"Many people suffering from swine influenza, even those who are severely ill, do not have fever, an odd feature of the new virus that could increase
the difficulty of controlling the epidemic, said a leading American infectious-disease expert who examined cases in Mexico last week......"
“It surprised me and my Mexican colleagues, because the textbooks say that in an influenza outbreak the predictive value of fever and cough is 90
percent,” Dr. Wenzel said.
