Expert unease over deadly flu virus 'created' in Dutch laboratory
Friday 25 November 2011
Dutch scientists have created a flu virus which is so deadly there is doubt about whether the research should be published, the Volkskrant reports on Friday.
The paper says American experts are worried detailed information could fall into the wrong hands and that terrorists could recreate the virus as a weapon. The fears are notable because the work was carried out on behalf of the National Institutes of Health in the US.
The research team, led by Ron Fouchier, professor of virology at Erasmus teaching hospital, was able to create a highly infectious variant of the bird flu virus H5N1. H5N1 rarely transfers from animal to human, but if it does, the infection is often fatal.

“Dutch scientists have created a flu virus which is so deadly...”
How do they know?
Thanks for posting. Very interesting.
Shades of Twelve Monkeys; could be the beginning of the end.
Have no fear Obama will save us.
Maybe it only targets white people?
Hey, what could possibly go wrong?
This is another "you can't make this shit up"...story.
The research team, led by Ron Fouchier, professor of virology at Erasmus teaching hospitalought to be captured and put away in a Dutch dungeon for thinking up this "experiment"...
It would be really interesting to know just what they had in mind....
We simply need a legal doctrine where if anyone dies from this pathogen, the good doctor goes to prison for murder. Let him immerse his petri dishes in Chlorox, or take his chances. He’s nothing more than a modern day Doctor Frankenstein and his monster is in a cage... for now.
Don’t give them any ideas.
Doesn’t every modern zombie movie start out sort of like this? Government or some rogue wacko scientist creates deadly strain of something... it gets released and then we have to start shooting zombies in the head. ... sigh.
Am I alone in thinking it really is kind of weird that no one ever reads the posted articles anymore.
I don’t mean never, rather, hardly ever.
THAT'S what I fear the most!!
Think about it. There are those in power who believe the world's human population needs to be reduced significantly to achieve "sustainability."
I have lived my life in a world of bloodthirsty madmen: Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Che Guevara, Ceausescu and many more. All believed the evil lie that "the end justifies the means."
I do not doubt there are madmen today who would gladly unleash death upon billions if they thought it would help achieve their will-'o-the-wisp socialist Utopia.
