New flu pandemic threat from China

Post by tinpeeba » June 30, 2020, 3:07 am

Flu virus with 'pandemic potential' found in China.
A new strain of flu which has the potential to become pandemic has been identified in China by scientists.
It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.

Yes the nbew virus has not yet impacted onto the World Wide media, but it is interesting that again , it appears the root cause is Chinas Pig farming fraternity, what the hell are they doing to encourage these viruses to develop.

These viruses are mutating very quickly and as KP says, China seems to be the place they're coming from. This needs to be nipped in the bud before the world has to go into lockdown again.

I can tell you what they're not doing and that's supplying the vegan food industry.

Poor husbandry , little to no health standards , no oversight in the slaughtering of animals .
Take your pick .

Not remotely as serious as COVID as a vaccination would be much easier and faster
Current flu vaccines do not appear to protect against it, although they could be adapted to do so if needed.

what the hell are they doing to encourage these viruses to develop
The core viruses have been on the planet for millions of years.
Viruses have been spreading and mutating between, animals to animals, animals to humans and humans to humans, forever.
It's hardly been noticed because it would previously only happen in a small way, in a localized area, kill some locals, then disappear.
Only until mass farming of animals, (worldwide, not just China), has assisted the viruses to jump species, then affect larger populations.

We are all at fault, because we don't kill and eat our own food anymore, we buy it from these mass farming, manufacturing facilities.

It's just a result of the amount of people on the planet.
Who's fault is that?
Ours.

It's nature taking it's course, to keep the balance.
It's been doing this for 13 billion years, and has a pretty good track record.
We just don't like it

^ A reasoned and broadly accepted reason well explained, thanks.

However, hasn't God got a dog in this fight?

Only, if you believe in him. :lol:

Funny thing is, he seems to kill a lot of people, believers and non believers.
