WHO First Suggested Reassortment
of H1N1 and H5N1 Bird Flu In 2004

The World Health Organization (WHO) had suggested in 2004 that an exchange of genetic material between H1N1 and H5N1 was a possibility due to the widespread nature of the virus.

"This would be a catastrophic reassortment," stated virologist Gregory Evans. "Depending on how H1N1/H5N1 recombine, if we incorporate the evidence we now have of indirect mixtures and antiviral resistance, the implications could be devasting."

The WHO stated:
"The chances for genetic reassortment depend upon both the duration of H5N1 circulation in pigs as well as the simultaneous presence of human and pig influenza A viruses (such as H3N2 or H1N1). As long as human and avian influenza viruses are co-circulating - whether in humans or in pigs - the possibility of an exchange of genetic material-exists."

Russian doctors have recently stated that a new flu virus might appear as a result of reassortment between the swine flu and bird flu viruses.

"We have been monitoring it very closely," Gennady Onishchenko told journalists.

The combination of H5N1 bird flu and H1N1 viruses could become a monstrous hybrid - a virus that combines high mortality rate of the former and ability to transmit efficiently among people of the latter.

Recent media reports have stated that a swine flu mutation is now resistant to the antiviral Tamiflu. The change that created Tamiflu resistance has been found in about 75 people around the world, said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, chief flu adviser to the W.H.O.’s director general.

Dr. Fukuda also said W.H.O. scientists were “not sure” of the level of threat posed by a separate mutation that helps the virus reach the lungs. It has been found in Norway, Ukraine, Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico and the United States, in both serious and mild cases.

The vaccines administered for H1N1 will be ineffective against the new reassorted strain of H1N1/H5N1 Flu and the world may face a more deadlier pandemic then the current H1N1 outbreak or possibly even deadlier than 1918.

Four months ago, a sample taken from a 28 year-old man who arrived at the port of Safaga from Saudi Arabia after performing Umrah [pilgrimage] has tested positive for [both] bird and swine flu [that is, presumably avian influenza (H5N1) virus and pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus infections]. He was immediately detained and held in isolation in a hospital in Hurghada.

Dr. Patricia Doyle on the H1N1/H5N1 mix :

The WHO and CDC are quiet about it, first of all because it would spoil (or as they say in Brooklyn, sperl) their vaccine plans for us. Why would anyone take a vaccine that doesn't cover the most deadly strain of pandemic virus, the new H5N1/H1N1? These alphabet agencies know that there is an alternative media out there, getting the word out. Way out to the world.

My guess is, and it is just a guess, that this co-infection will develop into a major strain subunit and be the deadly virus easily transmitted human to human. My guess is that it will also spread like wildfire in the avian population and thus become endemic as we see with H5N1.

They don't want people to know until they can put a spin on this. You can bet they have their spin docs working over-time on this one.

Once a vaccination against H1N1 is started, the virus will re-assort itself into a hybrid H1N1/H5N1 strain or mutate into a new H5N1 strain as its already start mutating in pigs and turkey. The current H1N1 strain, contains synthetically gene spliced strains of two forms of human flu viruses, two forms of swine flu viruses, and a single form of avian flu virus.
