Flu virus with 'pandemic potential' found in China ^ | 29 June 2020 | By Michelle Roberts

Posted on 06/29/2020 4:20:55 PM PDT by RomanSoldier19

A new strain of flu that has the potential to become a pandemic has been identified in China by scientists.

It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.

The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak.

While it is not an immediate problem, they say, it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans and needs close monitoring.

As it's new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus.

Pandemic threat A bad new strain of influenza is among the top disease threats that experts are watching for, even as the world attempts to bring to an end the current coronavirus pandemic.

The last pandemic flu the world encountered - the swine flu outbreak of 2009 that began in Mexico - was less deadly than initially feared, largely because many older people had some immunity to it, probably because of its similarity to other flu viruses that had circulated years before.

Those are not all influenza.

Interesting that they did not seem to mention where this is happening, just “China.”

If you don’t want to worry about the corona virus there is always BHT as well as any other LIPID COATED viruses.

And there is always BHT (butylatedhydroxytouluene) which disables most lipid coated viruses including the corona virus, influenza, shingles and herpes amongst many others. Suggested starting dosage is anywhere from 250mg to 450mg can be doubled for several days, but suggested to remain in the 500mg range or below. For better absorption it is recommended to dissolve BHT first in oil, olive oil will do nicely and to speed up dissolving a few seconds in a microwave or set the container with the oil solution in a hot water bath. Why dissolving in oil first? BHT will only dissolve in either oil or alcohol and by going this route it will speed up absorption and you get by using smaller amounts of it.

One suggested way is to take 200ml (milliliter) of olive oil and dissolve 18 gm of BHT, or 277.782 grains if you using a powder scale used for re-loading. Each tsp. depending on its size should give you approx. 450 mg of BHT. It is better to be pro-active by taking BHT, even so BHT will still kill the virus but it cannot cure any of the other problems which the virus may have created. I hope they come up with a vaccine, but would not hold my breath. More detailed info upon reply.

They have to call it African Swine Fever, because they can’t call it what it really is or the population would freak. African Swine Fever is the Reston Ebola strain.

Thanks for the BHT advice. I think you can take it on its own.

btw—The breakfast of champions is 12oz water. Mix a heaping teaspoon of MSM into it and a level teaspoon of baking soda. Take some vitamin C (500mg or so) to enhance the MSM. For the super mix add in a few drops of Lugols iodine.

Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM is great and it has many health benefits as I have been taking it on a regular basis along with many other nutrients for many years. However it does not deactivate lipid covered viruses like BHT does. Matter of fact if you do some research on BHT you will find that one company even tried to get a patent over thirty years ago on BHT because of its virus killing properties. In any case, stay healthy and well.

"Now how did it just happen to arrive ready to infect humans?"
By design? Like CV-19? With SARS/HIV characteristics where no one has a vaccine for HIV from 35 years ago? Fauci's "baby".

We plebians are not getting the whole story but we do know its coming from China.

One thing that's come out is unlike "normal" flu viruses, the body's antibodies may not last long.

More design features.

Fauci paid China for enhanced viruses or some such term because the research was blocked in the US, IIRC.

Why would anybody do that?
