    Original title: Scientists want to manufacture H7N9 variant virus to become the United States worried about its chemical and biological weapons


    International Online Zhuangao:

    According to the British Broadcasting Corporation reported on August 7, scientists plan to manufacturing variation H7N9 avian influenza virus, in order to assess the avian influenza virus caused lethal global pandemic risk. However, the U.S. government fears the mutant virus labs produce chemical and biological weapons will become.

    Internationally renowned virologist Ron Fuqie Er (Ron Fouchier) and Yoshihiro Kawaoka (Yoshihiro Kawaoka) Wednesday (August 7) ​​announced the plan. The results of the study will produce a highly spread of the deadly H7N9 virus.

    Just the day before, Chinese medical researchers reported the first case of H7N9 avian influenza virus between humans cases. Since March this year, China confirmed the first case of human infection of H7N9 avian influenza since the date as of July 21, the Chinese mainland were found in 133 cases of confirmed cases, including 43 deaths.

    Ron Fouchier and virologist Yoshihiro Kawaoka said that if the H7N9 virus through mutation can become easily spread from person to person, it causes avian flu outbreak in humans, the risk will increase exponentially.

    And to prove that there is no such possibility, how many times you want to understand the virus variants will become easy to spread the only way to go in a lab environment to make those variations and experiments in animal models to assess the ability of the virus spread .

    However, similar to the transformation of avian influenza virus genes to produce new virus research has been widely disputed.

    In 2011, Ron Fouchier announced that he in the lab, "create" a new H5N1 variant virus. His study concluded, H5N1 virus just happened five variations, it can spread through the air, potentially dangerous influenza outbreaks. However, his findings triggered a "virus will flow from the laboratory to become biological weapons," the big controversy.

    Lab-made mutant virus became particularly chemical and biological weapons to make the U.S. government the possibility worried. American Biological Safety National Science Advisory Board for Fouchier commenced an assessment study and suggested the U.S. "Science" and British "Nature" magazine not to publish Fu Qieer papers mentioned viruses manufacturing.

    Fouchier believes that doing such research is very important, and security risks can be controlled. Of course, trials should be highly secure biological laboratory.

    what's the plan, if they succeed ?
    Keep it secret ?
    Stop communication ?

    merge the countries
