H5N1 Avian Flu News: Researchers Are Concerned That A Lethal Reassortant Strain Involving SARS-CoV-2 And H5N1 Avian Flu Virus Is Likely To Emerge Soon!
H5N1 Avian Flu News
: Forget about the more than 20 sub-lineages of the SARS-CoV-2 XBB variant that is predominant in many geolocations across the world as they are unlikely to drive disease severity except those in the vulnerable groups or about the rather isolated incident of a girl dying from the H5N1 Avian Flu virus in Cambodia, rather researchers are warning us that we should be more concerned about a more transmissible and lethal reassortant variant emerging from animals coinfected with both the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the H5N1 Avian Flu virus!
Already it is well known that many animal species have become reservoirs of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the last 3 years including not just deer, racoons, sea mammals but also rabbits, mice etc.
At the same time, in the last 14 months, we have been witnessing that the H5N1 Avian flu virus has not only been wreaking havoc across the world, causing the deaths of millions of wild birds and also the farmed chickens and now also infecting and causing the deaths of mammals in various countries as reported in many H5N1 Avian Flu News
Both the SARS-CoV-2 and the H5N1 Avian Flu viruses are RNA viruses and it is not impossible for the to ‘recombine’ in an animal host that is coinfected with both the viruses!
The possibility of either virus during a case of a co-infection of both viruses picking up a snippet of genetic material from the other remains high despite claims that such occurrences are unlikely.
In fact, it was earlier claimed that in the case of the Omicron variant, it was speculated that the SARS-CoV-2 could have picked up a snippet of genetic material from an ordinary cold virus.&l
With both viruses now in circulation in vast amounts and also infecting millions of animals in various countries, it is likely that already co-infections are becoming a rather rampant and along with such high occurrences, the possibility of a reassortant strain emerging is very likely.
In fact, it would be of litel surprise if such strains are already in existence and are only waiting for the right opportune time to jump into humans while these newly emerged strains start evolving for better viral fitness.
The later part of 2023 is already predicted to be a fun time as there are so many possible scenarios that are predicted to materialize as a result of the stupid ways that the current COVID-19 crisis is being mismanaged. There is first a high possibility that a new more lethal SARS-CoV-2 variant is likely to emerge. Then there is also a scenario of a new SARS-CoV strain emerging from a zoonotic source that will be called SARS-CoV-3. There is also the high possibility that by late 2023 we could be having several virus outbreaks or pandemics simultaneously etc.ie Avian Flu, Measles, Small Pox, Marburg, Ebola etc.
Even if the reassortant strain does not emerge naturally, we can be rest assured that the WEF, Gates, DARPA, Pfizer, Moderna, U.S. NIH, Fauci and Obama will come up with some lab version discreetly to help depopulate the world and also profit from the vaccines.
