Scientists are going to create a mutated form of the deadly bird flu
Leading virologists currently looking to create a mutated form of the deadly bird flu virus. virus called H7N9 was discovered in China a few months ago. From the moment it was discovered they were infected 133 people, 43 of whom died. It is reported that the virus can be transmitted from one person to another.
Scientists believe that if you do not carry out experiments on the new virus, and do not try to learn more about it, it is a good chance that before a potential pandemic, we will simply defenseless. Sources say that a number of experiments, the researchers are going to create some vector-borne (ie transferred) forms of deadly H7N9.
Work on the creation of new forms of the virus will be carried out in a highly conserved laboratories around the world. In this case, scientists promise to take maximum precautions to minimize the risk and the possibility of these viruses to escape to freedom. Experts believe that by creating a mutated form of the virus, they are, first, to be able to know what is really the danger level will represent this infection, and second, to find out how to behave in a virus-prone genetic changes to be alert to the possibility that could happen, happen is already in the field.
“The virus is H7N9 pandemic nature of the signs. Moreover, the one-two forms have already met scientists in the last century. Our main task will be to clarify the behavior of the remaining forms of the virus in order to know in advance about what to expect from them, “- said the press researcher Ron Fucher Medical Center Erzamusa.
Modes of transmission, its virulence (power), the impact on the immune system, resistance to antiviral drugs and the possibility of cross-breeding with other strains of flu – that’s just a small list of questions that scientists have to find the answers.
As always happens, some have already begun to speak out against such experiments and the creation of a mutated form of H7N9. But scientists believe this is one of the few ways to find the right solution in the event of a real threat.
