Highly infectious Avian Flu developed by scientists!

Let me see if I have the perfectly correct. A lab in Rotterdam Netherlands has developed ‘a man-made flu virus that could change world history if it were ever set free!’

Seems that scientists have managed to alter the avian flu’s (H5N1) gene structure in such a manner as to make it catchable by mammals, us be in the mammal in question. The avian flu, you may or may not know, is extremely pathogenic and in the rare cases where humans have caught it, is 60% fatal!

So, now not only has a highly transmissible form  been developed, but these geniuses also want to publish a paper telling the world how they did it! Hamas are you taking notes?
