P.I.D. Radio 8/9/13: Bird Flu Again


SCIENTISTS HAVE announced plans to genetically modify the dangerous H7N9 virus to make it more lethal.  They say it will help them understand how it could mutate in nature and trigger a catastrophic pandemic.

Hmm.  The case mortality rate for H7N9 so far is near 20%, or about four times more deadly than the 1918/19 Spanish Flu.  What could possibly go wrong?

Also: Archaeologists think they may have found a piece of the True Cross; Amish healer from Sharon’s old stomping grounds passes away; dolphins experience “unusual mortality event”; and more violence in the Sinai.

If you’re in the North Central U.S., please consider attending the Minneapolis Underground Summit with Russ Dizdar, Doug Woodward (Derek’s guest this weekend on A View From the Bunker), and Rob Skiba September 27th and 28th at the Hotel Sofitel, Minneapolis.
