The lead author of today's announcement is Dr. Ron Fouchier, a respected molecular virologist. He heads at Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, that engineered a form of "aerosolized" bird flu that can easily be passed from humans to humans through the air.
well at lest some get it.

It's not that we don't give a crap, a lot of us follow these threads pretty often. It just gets to the point where we have information overload sometimes and need a laugh once in awhile. Not trying to lighten what you are saying, just filing it away for future reference. TBH, we already knew about this from a post a while back.

no prob some times I just get worked up about .. well things like this. I feel they should get more attention too. flags or stars are not the reason for this post nor thread, it is the madness behind it and the reason why make it a aerosol, it is not end dust or Lysol it is a deadly virus, for X sakes, and now with a sneeze could be released.

It seems they had the thought it was coming and was trying to see how it could be spread from human to human well it has happened from the link

Bird Flu: It's getting worse

Bird Flu: It's getting worse. 46427.jpegSince our last article two days ago, the situation has got worse: A H5N1 (Avian Flu) cases have been recorded in the People's Republic of China and in Vietnam. This, after deaths in Indonesia and Egypt from this virus with an extremely high mortality rate.

The Vietnamese Ministry of Health has confirmed the death of an eighteen-year-old man from Kien Giang Province, who developed symptoms on January 10, was hospitalised on January 12 and died on January 14. 60 patients of the 120 cases registered in Vietnam with A H5N1 have died.
well it is not that high 50% but then "one is left one is taken" could this be the one?

I swear ATS is getting as ignorant as the general public.

There is no evidence of H5N1 transmission from human to human. It has been speculated, but there is no evidence. The evidence is still that it is only from bird to human.

Most of the first world countries don't have the conditions to make this a problem(and most have decent surveillance) is the reason why it hasn't been made an event.

The reason to develope a flu in the lab is varied. Flus are genetic, they cause problems because they can change. If they can predict the genetic variants, then vaccines can be developed before any flu morphs or is used as a weapon.

And if anyone wanted to go the bioterrorism route and destroy a population, they would just release the e bola virus, which has an extremely high mortality rate and kills someone in hours.

But it contains itself, because of its speed it wipes out an entire village and barely gets passed on.

so they wouldn't need to spend millions on a flu that someone can make the vaccine up for in months, when there is already a much more efficient killing disease in a village in Africa.

Big Pharma created teh seasonal flu? Really?

I kinda think the flu was around before big pharma.

I am sure WHO, CDC, The Global Disease Surveillance, and a host of other international entities would beg to differ.

Instead of this silly idea that governments want people killed off, consider prevention because a radical infection would cost billions or trillions of dollars to a country.

Did you just say 50% isn't that high?

You do know that a plaugue is a bacterial infection, and that a flu is a virus?
