Over the years, we have read about China’s chickens being killed by the bird flu.
Now, a man in Eastern China was infected with this virus. He was hospitalized for 2 weeks and then released.
No big deal, right? Well, actually it is a very big deal. This is the very first time this virus has infected a human being. Will there be more?
An interesting side note….
If I am not mistaken, 10 years ago, Dr Fauci and his team did gain-of-function research on the bird flu virus.
If you are not familiar with the term “gain of function”, it describes an effort to artificially mutate a harmless virus into a killer virus, a virus that could kill millions of humans. I don't believe, he succeeded.
But that was 10 years ago… no connection to this case in China.
