H2N2

Contrary to earlier reports, there are now 3 countries with unaccounted for H2N2 influenza virus, the strain that caused the 1957 pandemic.

I don't know which is more troubling. That they sent out this virus in the first place or that they cannot keep straight what happened to all the shipments.

I'll say again how much more attractive bioterrorism must look to our enemies when you consider that 1-4 million people died in that pandemic.
