H7N9, what the World Health Organization is calling ‘the most lethal flu’ has mutated, allowing human to human transmission as shared in the story below from Taiwan. Warning that this form of avien influenza has a fatality rate of 60%, it also has spread now to over 60 countries around the world and scientists are concerned that this new mutation will allow it to spread even further. Video reports also below including one from potrblog who warned us MONTHS AGO that the CDC had set up a new H7N9 division to deal with local pandemics here in America. Do they know something we don’t know?

Shanghai, Jan. 11 (CNA) Chinese researchers have discovered mutations in the new strain of avian influenza A, known as H7N9, and have found that the virus has the ability to spread from human to human, the latest issue of China’s Southern Metropolis Weekly reported.

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.

The report said that H5N1 and H7N9 have been two of the the most lethal avian influenza viruses for humans in recent years. Since the first case of human influenza A H5N1 was reported in 1997 in Hong Kong, the virus has affected more than 60 countries around the world, with a fatality rate of 60 percent.
