New Genomic Analysis Shows H5N1 (Bird Flu) Replikin Count Highest Among Five Influenza Strains
Replikins are specific gene structures quantitatively related to rapid replication and outbreaks of viruses (1). Replikins Ltd today released its genomic analysis of the structures of five common strains of influenza: H3N2 (Seasonal Flu), H2N2 (Asian Flu), H1N1 (Swine Flu), H7N9 and H5N1 (Bird Flu). While the Replikin Counts in the genes of several influenza strains are increasing, the highest Replikin Counts continue to be in H5N1 (1) (See Figure). With the occurrence of additional human cases of H5N1 this year in Cambodia and Bangladesh (WHO), concern is increasing.
Rising Infectivity Gene Replikin Counts in H1N1 in 2008 predicted the H1N1 pandemic of 2009 (1, 2). Also, rising Lethality Gene Replikin Counts in H5N1 predicted the outbreak of H5N1 in Indonesia in 2006-2008, which peaked with a human mortality rate of 80% (3).
While the flu season may be starting, the Feds can't track it.
That's a scary thought according to local doctors who fear without the data, they can't predict how bad the season will be and get people the vaccinations and medications they need.
...The government shutdown forced the furlough of nearly 9,000 workers at the CDC.
Local health officials say that has compromised weekly reports on flu patterns which determine when and where flu outbreaks are happening.
Dr. Jason Bowling, an infectious disease specialist with UT Medicine says every season is unpredictable and this information is critical to save lives.
We're doomed again.

We're doomed again.
Fear is a mind-killer. The goal is to get past the emotional response and appreciate the phenomenally complex interconnectedness of our amazing world. And then to recognize that even minor "tinkering" can have hugely far-reaching consequences. For example, dosing food animals daily with human antibiotics and anti-virals, and vaccinating flocks and herds actually creates super-bugs and super-flus
...I bet none of the gov. officials will ever die of this disease.
