Looks like this thing is airborne now. Also it's up to the Chinese to manage their live poultry markets better to keep it under control. Good luck with that.

"The H7N9 bird flu virus can be transmitted not only through close contact but by airborne exposure, a team at the University of Hong Kong found after extensive laboratory experiments.
Though the virus appears to have been brought under control recently, the researchers urged the Hong Kong authorities to maintain strict surveillance, which should include not only poultry but humans and pigs.
"We also found that the virus can infect pigs, which was not previously known," said Dr Maria Zhu Huachen, a research assistant professor at HKU's School of Public Health.
There have been 131 confirmed human infections, with 36 deaths, the World Health Organisation said. All but one of the cases was on the mainland. The virus appears to have been brought under control largely due to restrictions at bird markets and there have been no new confirmed cases since May 8.

Is H7N9 a U.S. government bioweapon?

Colonel Dai Xu of the People's Liberation Army said in early April that H7N9 was a bio-psychological weapon engineered by western powers and released in China in order to destabilize the region. His comments were dismissed by the Chinese government, but behind the scenes many people think he may be correct.

We already know, for example, that the U.S. Army routinely works on developing deadly new strains of influenza as part of its bioweapons research. This is not disputed. It's also true that bioweapons have gone missing from U.S. government laboratories, including the Galveston National Laboratory in Texas.

So the idea that a biological weapon developed by the U.S. government might find its way to China is not as far-fetched as it might first seem.

There's also the fact that the U.S. and China are already at war in many covert ways. China routinely steals U.S. military secrets, for example, and the U.S. is openly engaged in an aggressive currency war that's hurting China. Meanwhile, China is playing "debt war games" with America's debt holdings, even while the U.S. is eroding the value of that debt through a process of currency creation via the Fed.

There's a lot more going on behind the scenes than you'll ever find reported on CNN, and the idea that this may have entered the realm of bioweapons isn't unreasonable. Besides, a pandemic also serves the interests of the state, because any time there's a panic, most people instinctively look to government to save them

If it was a bio-weapon, why don't we get a congressional inquiry on it? Aren't congressmen the representatives of the people?

Hahaha, jokes on you, they represent the corporations that buy them and keep them in office.

Better idea is to utilize natural remedies to help your body fight off disease.

But what about the government of the people, for the people?
Or did corporations suddenly become people now?

You're getting the idea. Yes, corporations are people now, highly influential people.

So that means we could put them in prison for damages, right?
