A man in eastern China has contracted the H10N3 bird flu, according to The Western Journal.
“This infection is an accidental cross-species transmission. The risk of large-scale transmission is low.”
“There have been no significant numbers of human infections with bird flu since the H7N9 strain killed around 300 people during 2016-2017.”
“The most well-known avian flu strain, H5N1, has a 60% mortality rate, but the U.S. has yet to report any infections among people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
“Following recent avian flu outbreaks in Africa and Eurasia, the head of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention last week urged stricter surveillance in poultry farms, markets and wild birds.”
“I’m very worried that this stuff still goes on and that the U.S. government’s been funding it.”
Texas Republican Rep. Mike McCaul said, “We’re creating Frankenstein super-viruses that, if they leak out of the lab, accidentally or on purpose, could devastate the world. The SARS virus is 15 times more deadly.”
“If that one gets out, and we enhance its ability to be transmitted, that could kill 50, 100 million people.”
“This shouldn’t be a partisan issue. This should be debated.”
“You know, I do think it’s more likely than not it emerged out of the lab, most likely accidentally, for several reasons,” McCaul stated
“And, first of all, Jake, let me say, this is the worst cover-up in human history that we have seen, resulting in 3.5 million deaths, creating economic devastation around the globe.”
From The Western Journal:
A man in eastern China has been confirmed as the first human case of the H10N3 bird flu, China’s National Health Commission reported on Tuesday.
The 41-year-old Zhenjiang resident visited a local hospital on April 28, according to the NHC report, Reuters said. The man was diagnosed with bird flu on May 28. He has since been discharged but remains monitored.
Fox News reported, “The most well-known avian flu strain, H5N1, has a 60% mortality rate, but the U.S. has yet to report any infections among people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
CBS News said, “Following recent avian flu outbreaks in Africa and Eurasia, the head of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention last week urged stricter surveillance in poultry farms, markets and wild birds.”
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on Saturday that he was concerned the U.S. government was continuing to fund Chinese research that could be used to develop biological weapons.
Texas Republican Rep. Mike McCaul, the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday to discuss the origins of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The COVID-19 virus has led many American lawamers to hold additional concerns regarding biological pathogens, particularly related to viruses from China.
