WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
Biological engineers at the Influenza Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin at Madison have been able to reverse engineer the H1N1 flu virus back to the strain of Spanish Flu that in 1918 killed forty million people. They have also been able to create the H5N1 strain of Swine Flu virus that in 2009 killed half a million people. They have carried this one step further and mutated the Swine Flu virus to a form that totally eludes all human immune systems.
These viruses are maintained in special freezer units in a ‘secure’ facility that consist of concrete box within a concrete box, complete with air locks and high end security. The people working at this facility, and experimenting on live animals with these deadly viruses, have all been cleared by extensive FBI security checks. The Ebola virus along with other unknown pathogens are also stored there.
About one half of the scientific community have serious reservations about developing and maintaining deadly viruses that could pose a threat of a worldwide pandemic.
The scientist at this facility, however, claim that the human race has probably already developed immunity to the Spanish Flu and Swine Flu over the decades, and so the maintenance of these viruses pose only a small danger.
However, they avoid comment about the mutated virus developed that is said to totally elude the human immune system.
So as not to be one sided, here is the link from the University of Wisconsin explaining their program for general consumption.
Again: What could possibly go wrong?
