They don't know. They were saying it's not that transmissible, needs hours of exposure to be considered close contact, but it's been going around much longer at lower levels than previously thought.

It's probably nowhere near as contagious as COVID, but apparently it isn't behaving as it used to.

So it's changed.
LETS
FUCKIN
GOOOOOOOO

I dunno, I think we done goofed
Ain't no turning back now bb. As discussed early 2020, and a handful of times before that: as we keep opening up eons of stores shit by way of destroying the permafrost, we're effectively opening up Pandora's box with the same effect of "a butterfly flaps it's wings in Africa which causes a tornado in Tucson"

A flu virus that killed tens of millions worldwide after it appeared in 1918 has been recreated in the virological equivalent of the Jurassic Park story. Scientists rebuilt it from pieces of genetic material retrieved from the lungs of people who died 87 years ago. Researchers writing in the journals Science and Nature say the tightly guarded replica is even more virulent than they expected

Theyve already recreated 1918 flu from some frozen ppl


In for leak :noes:

'member the massive anthrax outbreak that ravaged Siberia a few years ago? Same shit.
Zombie deer? That's cool.
COVID, obvs...
And a half dozen bird flu scares, swine flu recurrences, etc cetera.

This is fine.jpg

Shit, matter of fact here you go:


Some miners just stumbled across a wooly mammoth calf that's been revealed after 30,000 years in Canadian permafrost.






Okay, I'm done, back on topic.
