Worst virus EVER!!

Sigh…looks like we’re still all going to die…Science’s comment section has the following article from November 23:

Scientists Brace for Media Storm Around Controversial Flu Studies

My comment to the article:

“”This work should never have been done,” says Richard Ebright.”

Really? We shouldn’t know just what makes H5N1 flu aerosol-transmissible in ferrets, and potentially also in humans? And more to the point, people in countries where the virus is now endemic, and busy evolving without the permission of the NSABB or any other agency, shouldn’t know what to look for?

I am also concerned over the scare factor that keeps getting invoked: the same thing was said about reviving the 1918 H1N1, and the same counter can be made.

THERE IS A VACCINE AGAINST H5N1. SEVERAL, IN FACT. H5 HA SHOULD PROBABLY BE INCLUDED IN THE SEASONAL FLU VACCINE – THEN THERE WOULD NEVER BE A PANDEMIC.
