Yup.. I realize it.
I also realize that the 1918 H1N1 mutated and became less lethal, and showed up as a normal seasonal flu for decades.
I also realize that medical researchers sought out the body of an Inuit woman who had died from the highly virulent strain in 1918, exhumed her from
her permafrost grave, just to obtain a sample of the pristine genome of this highly virulent strain.
Since this genome is now in the data banks of the pharma industry... you have to ask "why?"
In that article, you'll see a picture captioned as:
