2 seperate labs create highly contagious killer flu
[link to www.independent.co.uk]

"The worst-case scenario here is worse than anything you can imagine."

For the first time the researchers have been able to mutate the H5N1 strain of avian influenza so that it can be transmitted easily through the air in coughs and sneezes. Until now, it was thought that H5N1 bird flu could only be transmitted between humans via very close physical contact.

Dutch scientists carried out the controversial research to discover how easy it was to genetically mutate H5N1 into a highly infectious "airborne" strain of human flu. They believe that the knowledge gained will be vital for the development of new vaccines and drugs.

What makes H5N1 so dangerous, though, is that it has killed about 60 per cent of those it has infected, making it one of the most lethal known forms of influenza in modern history – a deadliness moderated only by its inability (so far) to spread easily through airborne water droplets.

A second, independent team of researchers led by Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the universities of Wisconsin and Tokyo is understood to have carried out similar work with similar results, which has underlined how easy it is to create the super virus with a combination of deliberate mutations and random genetic changes brought about by passing avian flu manually from the nose of one ferret to another.

-------------------------------------------------------------​

This ties in well with

Thread: scientists openly announcing they made a super-virus to kill PEOPLE. WTF

and

Thread: Scientist modifies bird flu into highly contagious disease

So it looks like modifying H5N1 is fairly easy if you know what you are doing. Wonder if all these stories will lead to a story entitled, "H5N1 Vaccine found, mandatory shots for everyone." With the shots having some nefarious purpose.

Time to stock up on face masks and gloves. hiding

Nah, I'm sure it's safe and sound. According to the first article.

"The study was carried out by a Dutch team of scientists led by Ron Fouchier of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, where the mutated virus is stored under lock and key, but without armed guards, in a basement building"

I love how they tell you exactly where it is, and the fact it's not guarded that well. What could go wrong?

Last bump as I am going to bed.

Make sure to cover your mouth when you cough and nose when you sneeze this flu season! And use the inside of your elbow to do it, not your hand.
