Human Transmission of Deadly H7N9 Virus Now Confirmed
#1
In April of this year researches studying the H7N9 bird flu virus in China advised global governments to get prepared for the worst case scenario. According to the World Health Organization, H7N9 is one the most lethal influenza strains ever identified because it mutates eight times faster than a normal flu virus, and according to official records, has a death-to-infection ratio of about 25%.

It was initially believed that the virus could only be transmitted to humans who have had direct contact with poultry. After 36 H7N9 deaths and 131 of infections officially reported since the virus was first identified, the worst case scenario that many feared may now be on the horizon.

Scary stuff. Here's hoping that even with those fast mutations, it isn't able to defeat a vaccine that's seen whatever variant is in the mix for next seasons' flu shots. We saw a few years back that the industry really isn't very good at making a second pass at a vaccine in the same year, though maybe they've gotten better at it. What's just as disturbing is how quickly this one apparently crosses the species boundaries.

Actually, based on the three articles I've read today including the one above, it human transmission MAY be possible. I hate henny penny.
