Modern Bird Genes Have Potential To Cause A Pandemic Similar To 1918 Spanish Flu
2014-06-12 10:02:18

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Avian bird flu strains that exist today share very similar characteristics with the deadly 1918 Spanish Flu strain that killed nearly five percent of the world’s population. That flu virus pandemic was the worst outbreak ever recorded and new research has found that only a few amino acids separate viral proteins currently found in bird populations from those that existed during the 1918 virus. The new evidence suggests a similar...
