First Bats, Now Pigs? No, Really. Anthony Fauci Warns Of A New Virus…

(Right Country) – Dr. Anthony Fauci, the now-notorious director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified on Tuesday that an emerging virus found in pigs in China has traits in common with the 2009 Swine Flu and the 1918 Pandemic Flu (aka Spanish Flu).

Wow. Great.

He said that public health officials are monitoring the disease.

Fauci gave the comments to the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, where he also explained that the “G4 EA H1N1,” virus, as it is known, doesn’t seem to be capable of infecting humans, but has “reassortment capabilities.”

“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 stated. “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.”

Fauci told the lawmakers that there could be a “possibility that you might have another swine flu type outbreak as we had in 2009.”

“It’s something that still is in the stage of examination,” he added.

Later in the testimony, Fauci said that he was “quite concerned” about the recent surge in Covid-19 cases which eh blamed on states possibly opening too soon and the guidelines being ignored by some Americans.

“We have got to get that message out that we are all in this together,” he said. “If we are going to contain this, we’ve got to contain it together.”

Federal and state officials have pointed to younger people not adhering to face masks and distancing in public.

Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, and Brett Giroir, assistant secretary of the Health and Human Services Department, also appeared before the panel on Tuesday.

Redfield said of the recent increases that it is “imperative” that Americans take personal responsibility to practice preventative measures to stop the spread of the virus.

“Specifically, I’m addressing the younger members of our society, the millennials and the ‘Generation Zs,’” he said.

“I ask those that are listening to spread the word,” he added, encouraging younger people to “embrace the universal use of face coverings.”

  1. Yeah face coverings are great. They sure came in handy for the “peaceful” blm protesters. Especially after george floyd’s memory was all but forgotten. Now murders are on the rise but none of them are noteworthy. They’re just collateral black damage. The war has already started. No further justification required. I’ll be sitting on my front porch with my single finger salute flag flying high. I pity anyone that comes a callin’. I don’t have a politically correct bone in my body….

  2. Why doesn’t any of these ass holes say the virus surge started when the riots started. Tell the truth! Watch this weekend riots and how many people are at them and there will be Crickets from all democrats. They will blame everyone that attends a July fourth picnic.

  3. Don’t be too hard on Dr. Fauci; he did get us through the HIV-1/AIDS era, and learned a few things about accelerating responses to an epidemic. Now there seems to be a nice new H1N1 swine flu starting up in – you guessed it – China. And they are not even done with their vastly underreported coronavirus outbreak yet. But be of good cheer. The simple home remedy that I proposed for COVID-19 sufferers (which nobody has tried yet) is even more certain to work against swine flu, no matter what the strain. Just take a scant tsp of CsCl in a glass of juice, wait ~8 hr, then eat a banana. Prepare for heavy diarrhea. Repeat no more than 3-4X. That’s it!
