Preparedness Alert: As noted in the following report, an extremely deadly virus has been identified in China. The mortality rate as it continues to spread is similar to that of Ebola, having killed approximately 40% of those who become infected. Hundreds have already died. 

The possibility of a widespread pandemic is very real. As such, we encourage our readers to ensure your preparedness plan covers all of the necessities

As well, if a pandemic ever does reach U.S. shores, your city and/or your neighborhood, essential preparedness equipment like Respiratory Masks For Biological Threats and Full Body Suits should be part of your emergency stockpiles. 


The following report was originally published at ZeroHedge.com

A “new” strain of deadly bird flu dubbed “Disease X” by the World Health Organization (WHO) has killed hundreds of people in China, and is just three mutations away from becoming transmissible between humans, according to experts.

The strain, H7N9, circulates in poultry and has killed 623 people out of 1,625 infected in China – a mortality rate of 38.3%. While first identified in China in 2013, H7N9 has recently emerged as a serious threat seemingly overnight.

Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, deputy chief medical officer for the UK, told The Telegraph that H7N9 could cause a global outbreak.

“[H7N9] is an example of another virus which has proven its ability to transmit from birds to humans,” said Van-Tam, who added “It’s possible that it could be the cause of the next pandemic.”

The WHO says N7N9 is “an unusually dangerous virus for humans,” and “one of the most lethal influenza viruses that we’ve seen so far

H7N9 viruses have several features typically associated with human influenza viruses and therefore possess pandemic potential and need to be monitored closely,” said Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Researchers led by James Paulson of the Scripps Research Institute in California have been studying the mutations which could potentially occur in H7N9’s genome to allow for human-to-human infection.

The team’s findings, published in the journal PLoS Pathogens on Thursday, showed that in laboratory tests, mutations in three amino acids made the virus more able to bind to human cells — suggesting these changes are key to making the virus more dangerous to people. –Japan Times

That said, the mutations would need to occur relatively close to each other to become more virulent, which has a low probability of happening according to Fiona Culley, an expert in respiratory immunology at Imperial College London.

Some of the individual mutations have been seen naturally … these combinations of mutations have not,” and added: “The chances of all three occurring together is relatively low.”

Wenday Barclay, a virologist and flu specialist also at Imperial College says the study’s findings reinforce the need to keep the H7N9 bird flu under close surveillance.

“These studies keep H7N9 virus high on the list of viruses we should be concerned about,” she said. “The more people infected, the higher the chance that the lethal combination of mutations could occur.”

  2. BEEN THERE DONE THAT says:

    12/15/2011 they weaponized the bird flu

    • Philosopher Deplorabilis says:

      Predictive programming from 2011. Excellent video, thanks for posting it!

      And look, after Ebola, it is now illegal for the US to ban foriegn travelers from entering the US! What could go wrong?

      By the way, this new bird flu has a 40% mortality rate. Just what Gates and the Malthusians want. Easy way to kill nearly half of the global population.

  3. Menzoberranzan says:

    I drink colloidal silver once a week and haven’t been to the Dr in a decade.

  4. Heartless says:

    We can joke all we want to – I do it all the time. However, sooner or later the bio-genie is getting out of the bottle. We’ve flooded our planet with man-made chemicals and drugs…into the plants to the animals to ourselves. I for one do not believe in coincidence. Add in that boundaries and borders are crossed by millions each day, radio-active pollution is sweeping the Pacific, increased tectonic activity and a totally impotent and inept class of rulers over the whole damned earth….. sooner or later, yep. Now, what’s on the cartoon/sports/home shopping channel right now? …..

  5. aljamo says:

    According to Bob Nichols weekly rad reports humanity is doomed to a relatively quick extinction as the counts per minute falling are very high across America. Colorado Springs and Raleigh NC lead the way. Of course our very own government does not release this data. Yet nuclear energy and bombs are all the rage with nuclear energy ready to be bailed out at the top. Total insanity is the order of this day and times. Helpless and hopeless the people have no rights or voice in these matters.

  6. It is interesting that they, the “virologists”, have identified the 3 mutations necessary to make this much more deadly and potentially cause a pandemic. Now someone so inclined and skilled in genetic engineering, with even a temporary grudge, can now use the information to create the solution to their grievance.

    How does anyone know that the people, every single one of those studying viral lethality, are doing so in the interest of protecting humanity? What safeguards are in place to prevent someone from creating their idea of a solution to some world problem? So, it hasn’t happened to date, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t someone trying to make it happen. There always seems to be somebody that has flown under the radar for years doing things nobody suspected until they were caught.

    If not a single person, then maybe some group or government program?

    Just askin’

    Phrase rhymes with “clucking bell”

  8. Isolationism is important during an epidemic.

    Disease can be spread by direct contact. It is more easily spread when it becomes airborne.

    A strong immune system is the primary defense. Eat a healthy diet of CHICKEN, TURKEY, DUCK, EGGS, etc.

    The sob probably want to push vaccination, get us to kill our poultry so they have total control of food, and then raise prices once poultry is reintroduced.

    Screw this buying full body suit bs. If there’s a full blown pandemic, buy rope.

    I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again.

    The Asian countries are like hundreds of millions of petri dishes. With Humans, ducks, chickens, pigs, cows, etc. All mixing their bio waste. something is going to mix right and create a monster virii.

    • Kevin2 says:

      Sierra Dave

      “The Asian countries are like hundreds of millions of petri dishes”

      You have well over two billion people just between China and India. With hygiene standards vacillating between poor and non existent infectious disease is replicated in a virtual orgy of filth. I have some standards for admittance.

      1. If its not a routine to bathe virtually daily with soap and clean water stay in your shit hole country.

      2. If you wipe your ass with your bare hand keep those hands out of the US.

  10. Jim in Va. says:

    Feel like we’re being set up?

  11. YohanSmythe says:

    I’d be willing to bet that within a MONTH we will hear them talking about some “vaccine” for this “H7N9”.

    “We have to save the planet, take this shot” or something like that.

    Will they start restricting travel? NEVER. They want it to spread.

    • Yahooie says:

      Of course. The “worst ever” flu season that was forecast never happened or if it did, it didn’t make the news. People were warned even in spring to get the flu shot in preparation for a flu that was supposedly developing late (for flu) the season.

      I don’t get the flu shot. Doctors ask and I turn them down pointing out that I can get it near home (drug store, etc), at work, and so on. None of them have ever asked if I had done so.

      • Rattlerjake says:

        There have been numerous reports released that show that the “flu” shot does nothing other than give a lot of people the flu, as well as introduce chemicals and metals, like mercury, into you. I warn everyone I know and meet to STOP getting the flu shot. I got out of getting flu shots during most of my military career by being deployed where I couldn’t get one, and after retirement – I have not had once since ’92 and I never get the flu (knock on wood)!

        It’s time for people to understand biblical prophesy – everything that is happening is EXACTLY according to prophesy. WW3 is on our horizon (and NOT because of Trump), and tribulation will follow during or shortly after that.

        • People can prep all they want – and I do, to a fairly decent degree – but in the end all the prepping isn’t going to save you.

          That, my friends, is where we all need to make the choice and stop straddling the fence.

          Dylan wrote it in a song: you’re gonna have to serve somebody. If you opt not to choose, the default for you is the god of this world. Forget about the red pill or the blue pill.

          Choose wisely!

        • rellik says:

          Rattler,
          I’d like to know how you got out of getting shots in the military!
          I got more darn shots, so many, it filled up my first shot record so I had to get a new one(the yellow ones, that USAF used). Granted I was on world wide mobility, but I could not even return to the US without getting a series of flu shots( which made me sick) when I rotated back in 1977.
          Today the VA is always trying to get me to get a flu shot and I always refuse. I don’t think I’ve had a flu in more than forty years( I’m banging on wood now).
          “That which does not kill you makes you stronger”
          Friedrich Nietzsche.

  12. GETTING REAL says:

    Reminds me of the movie THE OMEGA MAN with CHARLTON HESTON 1970s

  13. If the virus can spread through feces, there is the possibility that the groundwater could be affected by the run-off from the farms. If you live in an area with a lot of poultry farms nearby and use well water, it might be advisable to boil your water. Someone else might know more about this? As long as it isn’t human to human direct transmission, it should be avoidable.

  16. slewfoot says:

    is tyler full of shit

  17. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    Jim, ROTFLMAO! Damn good one!

  18. BWhit says:

    According to the CDC there has only been 1 reported infection since October, 2017. The infections you refer to happened before that date.

  19. Clownzilla says:

    It is near impossible to get argyria from taking colloidal silver; now ionic silver (silver salts) is a horse of another color.
