Fauci Ties New Flu Virus in China to 2009 Swine Flu and 1918’s Deadly Spanish Influenza

Fauci Ties New Flu Virus in China to 2009 Swine Flu and 1918’s Deadly Spanish Influenza

This may be ultimate proof that the coronavirus panic is about to run its course.

A few days ago, news broke of a new strain of flu coming from China.

Researchers in China have discovered a new type of swine flu that is capable of triggering a pandemic, according to a study published Monday in the U.S. scientific journal PNAS. Named G4, it is genetically descended from the H1N1 strain that caused a pandemic in 2009.

It possesses “all the essential hallmarks of being highly adapted to infect humans,” say the authors, scientists at Chinese universities and China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The World Health Organization said Tuesday that it would “read carefully” the study on the new virus, with a spokesman saying the findings highlighted the importance of the world not letting “our guard down on influenza.”

The new strain is classified as H1N1, which is like the highly transmissible version spread around the world in 2009, killing about 285,000 people and morphing into seasonal flu.

The newer strain, known as G4 EA H1N1, has been common on China’s pig farms since 2016 and replicates efficiently in human airways, according to the study published on Monday. So far, it has infected some people without causing disease, but health experts fear that could change without warning.

“G4 viruses have all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus,” the study said, adding that controlling the spread in pigs and closely monitoring human populations “should be urgently implemented.”

The study, published online in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is based on the surveillance of pigs in 10 Chinese provinces from 2011 to 2018. In the last three years of the study, researchers collected 338 blood samples from workers on 15 pig farms and 230 from people in nearby households.

…Predicting risk is not a precise science, but close attention to the virus would be advisable, said Ian H. Brown, the head of the virology department at Britain’s Animal and Plant Health Agency and one of two scientists who reviewed the paper before it was published.

“It may be that with further change in the virus it could become more aggressive in people much as SARS-CoV-2 has done,” Dr. Brown said in an email on Tuesday, referring to the new coronavirus.

In a sign that the Wuhan Coronavirus may soon become “old news,” a very vocal member of President Donald Trump’s Coronavirus Tak Force is now tying the new strain to both the 2009 Swine flu and the 19818 Spanish Influenza that killed 50 million people worldwide.

White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday that U.S. health officials are keeping an eye on a new strain of flu carried by pigs in China that has characteristics of the 2009 H1N1 virus and 1918 pandemic flu.

The virus, which scientists are calling “G4 EA H1N1,” has not yet been shown to infect humans but it is exhibiting “reassortment capabilities,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee during a hearing.

“In other words, when you get a brand new virus that turns out to be a pandemic virus it’s either due to mutations and/or the reassortment or exchanges of genes,” he told lawmakers. “And they’re seeing virus in swine, in pigs now, that have characteristics of the 2009 H1N1, of the original 1918, which many of our flu viruses have remnants of that in it, as well as segments from other hosts, like swine.”

Granted, Fauci is technically correct about the class of the virus. However, connecting this virus to the widely feared historic strain of 2018 provided the media with fresh fodder of its continual pandemic panic cycle.

Furthermore, during the national COVID shut-down, Fauci was notorious for making the Sunday talk show circuits, countering many of the President’s statements, and ginning up fear about the coronavirus that has proven to be unfounded. I would not be surprised to see him make more media rounds this fall, focusing on this new flu.

While it is good to be diligent during all flu seasons, there is also no need for us to participate in endless cycles of pandemic panic just because its the 2020 election season.

      EXCLUSIVE: We Know the Democrat and Deep State Reactions to the China Coronavirus Are a Sham Because the Garbage Data is Hidden and Because Joe Biden is Failing

      By Joe Hoft
      Published July 3, 2020

      Wake up America – the Democrat’s and Deep States responses to the China coronavirus are intentionally non-transparent and are based on data that is total garbage. This is what Democrats feel they must do to prevent a total drudging of their senile candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

      Why is it that nothing surrounding the China coronavirus makes sense?

      Friedrich Hayek was famously skeptical of experts because they have a tendency to stretch beyond their expertise and make claims, recommendations, or policies that are beyond the narrow confines of their expertise. They also tend to collapse social problems into frameworks and models that seem easy to manipulate but that leave out a lot of important on-the-ground knowledge that, Hayek argued, is of a kind that is inaccessible to an outside observer. In short, it is easy to mistake a model for the actual underlying reality. It is just as easy to identify important considerations and act as if they are the only

      In a 2014 book, William Easterly highlighted and criticized The Tyranny of Experts (I reviewed it for Regulation here). His subtitle is revealing and relevant to the present moment: “Economists, Dictators, and the Forgotten Rights of the Poor.” Experts can identify facts and make recommendations, certainly, but they’re not well-positioned to know the specific trade-offs and decisions people should make in light of what they know.

Fauxci should keep his trap shut. Pres³ident Trump should ignore him. Fauxci’s science was based on an awful model, which also did not take into account the societal and economic costs of the lockdown. Yet, despite President Trump’s adherence to Fauxci’s nostrums, President Trump is still accused of not listening to scientists. Scientists, though, are not gods and should be viewed as the fallible people they are. Of course, scientists need to adhere to an old Danish aphorism: forecasting is difficult, especially about the future.

    It would help if Pence hadn’t resurrected the idiot Fauci corona show on TV recently

      Something we should keep in mind when the time comes to consider Pence for president. Can he be trusted to finish the job Trump started? Most of what he’s been asked to do so far has been the normal VP duties. Heading this virus commission has been his only opportunity to show us that he can be trusted so the jury is out.

Agreed that we are reaching the peak of flu hysteria. The push by MSM and epidemiology grant recipients and govt employees is pretty naked at this point. Both have a vested interest in monetary terms to continue hyping up the risks all out of proportion.

The bottom line is that covid deaths are decreasing while proven cases rise. That means the mortality rate is declining. In my opinion this will turn out to be about as bad as the 1968 episode. That’s still a big number but it isn’t close to the overly hyped CPT Tripps scenario that the experts and the MSM have been pushing.

    Ok, ‘science guy’, please be so good as to tell us if an N95 mask is going to prevent or reduce transmission from the wearer. Now do commercial cloth masks, disposable paper masks, bandanas etc.

    I will help a bit. None of these are 100% effective in preventing transmission from the wearer. The N95 is very good at protection for the wearer if taken on/off, cleaned and stored properly. The rest are iffy at best and only a psychological palliative at worst.

    For bonus points please explain the recent crowds of shouting, marching protesters many without a mask and their relationship with the spike in cases post incubation period.

    I am kinda glad to see cgray451. With Rags gone, there is a new guy to laugh at. Keep it up… my funny bone needs tickling.

Won’t be serious until government employees, all Democrats, start not getting a paycheck like the rest of Americans.

Bungler as a doctor, likely successful as a Democrat propagandist and corporate leech.

I’m just going to look back at some Baby Walt photos. Good for my blood pressure-lowering needs.

I’m over it.

There’s another report out indicating that the counting of Covid-19 infected patients was changed on May 11. The old method would only count patients who tested positive for Covid The new policy incorporates the aggressive tracking policies put in place as well. Now a patient checking positive as well as any and everyone he/she has been in contacted with are added to the count even if they are all negative. It would seem something sinister is afoot.

He’s probably done more damage to the economic and psychic health of Americans than any person in recent memory. Yet we cannot replace him? What is the thinking here, Mr. Trump?

You sound ridiculous, Mr. Soros.

But no one here likes the hacks of the GOP either.

Wu’s pigs get blamed for everything.

A return of the 1918 swine flu virus would indeed be a thing to fear. Unlike just about every other flu virus, the 1918 flu spared old people and killed young adults, apparently because their lungs filled with fluid due to an extreme immune response.

Then again, the 1918 swine flu is always brought out as a “worst possible” case. Other than being of a genetically similar strain, is there any evidence that any of these viruses are anywhere near as lethal as the 1918 flu?

    Dave in reply to Albigensian. | July 3, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    In reading about the Spanish flu there were references to huge doses of the new drug aspirin being prescribed and likely caused many deaths, also. Doses of 2g were not uncommon.

      Troop ships being sent to WWI in Europe crammed to the gills with young men had a lot to do with it as well. Finally, people were an order of magnitude less prosperous 10 room houses were mansions then, just middle well-off class now.

Fauci is a flip flop faker fool. He cried wolf too many times. I don’t believe one word he utters.

just don’t put him charge of this one

    hopeful in reply to buck61. | July 3, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    I hate it that Pence has him back up on his podium blathering away on TV. Pence could have kept him in the back row, or at least have someone else there to present another point of view. Don’t know what Pence could be thinking, if he even is. But at this point, he’s going to have to earn my vote in 2024.

One of my favorite little fantasies is Fauci fired on 11/4, and revenge served white hot on lots of other people as well. Keeps me going while I put up with officious Corona bleaters everywhere.

Fauci’s announcement isn’t really about the disease itself. Any disease would do. It’s about creating justification for re-enacting and extending restrictions: masks, distancing, and business reopening. Texas and Florida are busy reinstating “masks everywhere” rules because of artificial spikes in coronavirus cases, but my bet is they will be urged to continue the restrictions to ward off G4. Because it can always be argued that lifting the restrictions could result in a spike of cases, no matter what the current cases number is, the restrictions can be left in place indefinitely, or at least long enough to get universal mail-in voting.

    I agree with you that the goal seems to be an attempt to justify extending hysteria/fear in order to continue ‘temporary emergency powers’ and achieve mail out/in voting.

    The problem with the authoritarian rules regime is and has been the efficacy of the protocols.

    Either the requirements for masks, social distancing, increased cleaning of public spaces, washing hands etc are sufficient to provide a genuine level of prevention of transmission or they are not.

    Our political masters can’t have it both ways. Either all these precautions work or they don’t. Obviously, those individuals at higher risk need to take more care and should limit their chances of contracting by limiting their exposure.
    Our seniors and others in group settings are the population the political masters should be focused on protecting, IMO. The rest of us should be able to protect ourselves by following the guidelines.

China has avian and swine flu outbreaks nearly every year, and had one of each both of which were contained by slaughtering animals, last season.

I think China is making a threat to fail to contain another disease.

For his next act, Fauci will tap dance while playing show tunes on a kazoo.

love the photo chosen for the story, fauci with his hands up don’t shoot pose

I’m not overly concerned about Chinese Virus, or another one from pigs, or bats, or birds, or illegals, or whatever. I’m concerned that nobody seems to be making enough effort to control Swamp Fever. So fire this guy, already.

with all these threats arising from china, it occurs to me that we’d be doing the world a favor, if we just nuked china off the map!

Is “fauci” the Italian word for “angry”? In French it is “fâché”. Maybe we should start calling him “Dr. Fâché” instead of “Dr. Doom”.

“E prima ancora di accorgersene… cadono nelle fauci della pazzia.”

English translation:

“And before you know it… they’re delivered into the mouth of madness.”

“Fauci” is an Italian word for “jaw” or “mouth”. Could “the big Fauci” replace “the big Lewinski?”
