.....<< There was virtually no response or acknowledgment to the epidemics in March and April in the military camps. It was unfortunate that no steps were taken to prepare for the usual recrudescence of the virulent influenza strain in the winter. The lack of action was later criticized when the epidemic could not be ignored in the winter of 1918 (BMJ, 1918). These first epidemics at training camps were a sign of what was coming in greater magnitude in the fall and winter of 1918 to the entire world. >>
....."Flu viruses are very unpredictable, very deceptive ... We should not be over-confident. One must not give H1N1 the opportunity to mix with other viruses. That is why we are on alert."
.....I never said they "mated", (you used that word...not me) I said if they "hooked up".
.....MIX = HOOKED UP...means the same thing
.....So, I will REPEAT MYSELF: The SWINE FLU(H1N1) virus COULD "hook up" (mix) with the BIRD FLU (H5N1) VIRUS (or the HIV virus), MUTATING IN THE PROCESS, setting loose on the world a GLOBAL KILLER VIRUS just like the one that started in 1918.
.....And HOW will the WORLD MARKETS react to THAT NEWS if it sould ever come to that?
.....Here is what YOU said: "Viruses do not mate each other, they are inactive organism and they become active only in Host.""
.....And THIS is what WHO chief Margaret Chan says: "Flu viruses are very unpredictable, very deceptive ... We should not be over-confident. One must not give H1N1 the opportunity to mix with other viruses. That is why we are on alert."
