A new global flu pandemic within the next couple years is inevitable, one prominent flu vaccine manufacturer says.

Joseph Kim, head of Inovio Pharmaceuticals, which is currently working on a “universal” flu vaccine that would protect against most strains of the virus, says the world is due for a massive bird flu outbreak that could be much deadlier than the 2009 swine flu pandemic.

“I really believe we were lucky in 2009 [with the swine flu] because the strain that won out was not particularly lethal,” he says. “Bird flu kills over 60 percent of people that it infects, regardless of health or age. It is a phenomenal killing machine—our only saving grace thus far is the virus has not yet jumped to humans.”
