LONDON (Reuters) - The World Health Organization issued a stern warning on Friday to scientists who have engineered a highly pathogenic form of the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus, saying their work carries significant risks and must be tightly controlled.

The United Nations health body said it was "deeply concerned about the potential negative consequences" of work by two leading flu research teams who this month said they had found ways to make H5N1 into a easily transmissable form capable of causing lethal human pandemics.

The work by the teams, one in The Netherlands and one in the United States, has already prompted an unprecedented censorship call from U.S. security advisers who fear that publishing details of the research could give potential attackers the know-how to make a bioterror weapon.

The U.S. National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity has asked two journals that want to publish the work to make only redacted versions of studies available, a request to which the journal editors and many leading scientists object.

In its first comment on the controversy, the WHO said: "While it is clear that conducting research to gain such knowledge must continue, it is also clear that certain research, and especially that which can generate more dangerous forms of the virus....has risks."

H5N1 bird flu is extremely deadly in people who are directly exposed to it from infected birds. Since the virus was first detected in 1997, about 600 people have contracted it and more than half of them have died.

But so far it has not yet naturally mutated into a form that can pass easily from person to person, although many scientists fear this kind of mutation is likely to happen at some point and will constitute a major health threat if it does.

MUTATIONS

Flu researchers around the world have been working for many years trying to figure out which mutations would give H5N1 the ability to spread easily from one person to another, while at the same time maintaining its deadly properties.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health funded the two research teams to carry out research into how the virus could become more transmissible in humans, with the aim of gaining insight on how to react if the mutation occurred naturally.

The WHO said such research should be done "only after all important public health risks and benefits have been identified" and "it is certain that the necessary protections to minimize the potential for negative consequences are in place."

The agency also said it was vital that new rules on the sharing of viruses and scientific know-how were enforced to ensure those countries at most immediate risk from H5N1, mainly developing countries in Asia such as Indonesia, Vietnam and others, would benefit from advances in research.

During the H1N1 swine flu pandemic in 2009-2010, many developing countries complained they had no life-saving antivirals or vaccines to combat the new virus, despite having made samples of the virus available to researchers and pharmaceutical companies to develop the medicines.

It is normally laboratories in wealthy developed countries that have the level of scientific expertise needed to work on complex flu viruses, while bird, or avian, flu viruses themselves often come from less well developed Asian countries.

A new Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Framework was agreed and adopted by all WHO member states in May 2011 to set rules for sharing flu viruses that have pandemic potential, and sharing the benefits of the expertise gained.

"WHO considers it critically important that scientists who undertake research with influenza viruses with pandemic potential samples fully abide by the new requirements," the U.N. agency said in its statement.

We know that they have been man making this stuff and pawning it off as vaccinations and telling everyone that they should get it to protect themselves, but this article blatantly comes out and tells us that the SCIENTISTS have been CREATING these pandemics, vaccinations and the such!!

I'm shocked that it actually made it out into the main stream, yet will the sheeple see it? It's right under their noses and yet I have not heard anyone up in arms about this! This man made, government ran killing machine has got to be stopped before the loose the big one on us.

Whatever happened to Plum Island moving to the middle of the Country, have we heard anymore on that yet?

We need to make this the year that we get our Republic back.

Donald Trump's declared suspension of funding of the World Health Organization in the midst of a pandemic is confirmation – if any were needed – that he is in search of scapegoats for his administration's much delayed and chaotic response to the crisis.

The US is the WHO's biggest donor, with funding over $400m a year in both assessed contributions (membership fees) and donations – though it is actually $200m in arrears.

Head of WHO in Serbia: I am afraid that Serbia is close to lockdown  >:(

Head of the WHO office in Serbia, Marijan Ivanuša, said today that the current epidemiological situation in Serbia can be regarded as the third wave.

Ivanusa says that if 95% of citizens ware masks, the state would never be in a situation to "stop life", expressing fear that Serbia is relatively close to lockdown due to the worsening epidemiological situation, but that the day has not yet come.

"The situation has been continuously deteriorating over the past few weeks and if that continues I'm afraid that Serbia will get to the moment that life stops... A lockdown would have grave economic consequences and we know that affects the health of the public which is why the WHO sees it as an ultimate measure..." Ivanusa said.

He estimated that the new vaccine against coronavirus is "in front of the door", but that in the beginning it will not be enough for everyone.

Ivanusa said that more than 60 percent of the global population should be vaccinated in order to achieve collective immunity.

"The first vaccines will most likely be available in December, but there won't be enough for everyone," he said and added that this means that a long time will pass before the required amounts of vaccine are made, said Ivanuša for N1, as reported by daily Blic.

My opinion: WW1 and WW2 are not over for Germans and Serbs
