And a little tid-bit from the past:
A specimen of the influenza virus that killed 21 million people in the 1918 worldwide epidemic has been recovered from the frozen remains of a flu victim buried in Alaska.http://www.nytimes.com/1998/02/08/us/alask...ller-virus.html
Researchers at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology announced on Thursday that biopsy samples from a corpse exhumed from a cemetery in Brevig Mission, Alaska, contained genetic material from the flu.
And now we have a virus that looks very much like the 1918 flu sweeping across the Ukraine with the same hemoragic characteristics as the 1918 flu.
