The Most Dangerous Virus

This virus is created by human but also can exterminate human being. There is no name for this virus, still don’t have name for this virus. Virologist from the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, Holland, Ron Fouchier is the person who created this virus. He create this virus by mutate H5N1virus genetic material. To test the pathogenesis of this virus, Fouchier using ferrets as experimental animals because they have breath system similar to humans.

This one is the most dangerous virus, Fouschier said, quote by Daily Mail on Sunday, 27 November 2011. This virus more easier infect human than infect other humans. If the virus leakage to public, pandemic potential cause by this virus very high, even humans could become extinct because of this virus.

So what is the goal to create this virus? Fauchier said this experiment is the research on try to know the H5N1 virus. The similar experiment also done in Tokyo University – Japan.

Some have refused publication because it feared of such research results will be misused. The results could be positive for public health, but also can be used as a biological weapon.
