Frågan är vad världens galna vetenskapsmän sysslar med.
En galen vetenskapsman har framställt H1N1-influensavirus som är totalt resistent mot alla antikroppar. Bara att släppa ut och testa på människor.
"Dr Yoshihiro Kawaoka, professor of virology at University of Wisconsin at Madison, has reportedly tweaked the 2009 strain of pandemic influenza responsible for some 500,000 deaths worldwide to make it resistant to the human immune system's antibodies.
Kawaoka's critics say if the virus escapes from his lab, the human population would be defenseless against it."
Dr Kawaoka "...had picked out H1N1 strains that were resistant to antibodies and then repeated the process several time until he had on his hands a super-virus that could not be wiped out by a vaccine.
Everything he did before was dangerous but this is even madder."
Han kanske får Nobelpris?
"Officials at the University of Wisconsin have reassured the public that there is little to no risk that the virus could escape from the lab.
Rebecca Moritz, who oversees some of the research center's most sensitive work, explained that Kawaoka's project is a stress-test of sorts meant to identify H1N1 strains that could evade the human immune system in order to make the next vaccine more effective.
‘I have no concerns about the biosafety of these experiments,’ she said."
"Former chief science adviser to the UK government Lord May told The Guardian: 'The work they are doing is absolutely crazy. The whole thing is exceedingly dangerous."
Kawaoka har tidigare lyckats återskapa viruset som orsakade Spanska Sjukan.
"Simon Wain-Hobson, a virologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris has said that “”It’s madness, folly."
Säkerheten är i laboratoriet... sådär:
"Incredibly, the ‘research’ is reported to have been performed at biosafety level 2, the same biosafety level as a physician's or dentists's office: no required biosafety protections beyond an open cabinet, gown, and gloves."
Är denne Kawaoka en reptil, immun mot virus som drabbar människor?
Eller skvatt galen? Business Insider skriver:
"...a similar US Government lab at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta with a higher level-3 biosafety rating was recently criticised over the accidental exposure of at least 75 lab workers to possible anthrax infection."
Ahh, lite mysig anthrax också.
Han har även jobbat på att göra ett annat fågelvirus fullkomligt livsfarligt, men det anges inte vilket namn fågelviruset har. Ebolasmittkoppor?
"Some members of the audience, however, were shocked and astonished at his latest and most audacious work on flu viruses, which follow on from his attempts to re-create the 1918 flu virus and an earlier project to increase the transmissibility of a highly lethal strain of bird flu.
“He took the 2009 pandemic flu virus and selected out strains that were not neutralised by human antibodies. He repeated this several times until he got a real humdinger of a virus,” said one scientist who was present at Professor Kawaoka’s talk."
Varför låter myndigheterna forskare göra dessa virus?
Vad är målet?
