H7N9 goes human to human in Shanghai sparking fears in U.S.

SHANGHAI (INTELLIHUB) — It has now been reported that the ultra-deadly H7N9 strain of the Avian A virus has mutated from human to human in what may become the worst plague to strike the world in modern times. 

Although there still is a chance for suppression of the virus, it’s likely it will still continue to kill at a steady rate.

The publication Focus Taiwan wrote:

George F. Gao, the vice-president of Beijing Institutes of Life Sciences under the Chinese Academy of Sciences and deputy director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, told the Weekly that he and his research colleagues have broken down the mechanisms of transmission of the H5N1 and H7N9 avian flu viruses.

The research team pointed out in a study published in Science magazine in September last year that they have identified mutations in four key sites of amino acids of the H7N9 strain and found that the virus has an ability to bind to human cells in the upper respiratory tract.

Although the H7N9 and H5N1 viruses have not had the ability to widely spread from human to human, after undergoing genetic mutations and redistribution through mutations, they become better able to bind to human cells in the upper respiratory tract and can evolve into bird flu strains with the ability to transmit among humans, the team says.

Surprisingly this all lines up with a recent outbreak of flu activity in the state of Texas, however authority have listed the Texas outbreak as H1N1.

Public Intelligence recently score a local document out of Texas reading:

 It is not currently known why 2009 pH1N1 has re-emerged as the dominant strain this year. Early identification of any significant receptor binding domain changes in the severe Texas patients would be helpful to better characterize the cause of the severe pH1N1 clusters occurring these past few weeks.

From November through December 2013, CDC has received a number of reports of severe respiratory illness among young and middle-aged adults, many of whom were infected with influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 (pH1N1) virus. Multiple pH1N1-associated hospitalizations, including many requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission, and some fatalities have been reported. The pH1N1 virus that emerged in 2009 caused more illness in children and young adults, compared to older adults, although severe illness was seen in all age groups. While it is not possible to predict which influenza viruses will predominate during the entire 2013- 14 influenza season, pH1N1 has been the predominant circulating virus so far. For the 2013-14 season, if pH1N1 virus continues to circulate widely, illness that disproportionately affects young and middle-aged adults may occur.

Texas Severity Increasing

Texas health investigators have now linked 2 infections in a severe influenza-like illness (ILI) cluster to the 2009 H1N1 virus, and a dramatic flu activity jump in the state has vaulted Texas and 3 other southern states into the “widespread” category for the 1st time this season [2013-14]. The Montgomery County Health District (MCHD), located near Houston, reported a severe ILI cluster that put 8 people in a local hospital, killing 4 of them. Initial tests were negative for flu, which raised speculation about what pathogen was fueling the outbreak. Local media outlets noted that patients in the cluster were middle-aged adults who were reportedly previously healthy, which also ramped up the level of concern. Last week however, the MCHD said further tests now show that 2 of the survivors were infected with the 2009 H1N1 virus [influenza H1N1 pdm9 virus] and that further tests were underway to pinpoint the cause of the other infections.

While its likely there is no connection between the two countries, it has been pointed out by many people in-the-know that the establishment may likely use a pandemic to mask the roll-out of martial law in America.
