Anyone ever realized that one of the reasons for the lack of scientific progress in the west has been unnecessary regulations and no risk taking by researchers ??

Maybe they SHOULD take the risk in order to discover something new.

Let the scientists take the risk in order to produce the breakthroughs the world needs.

Anyw ay, who's gonna stop them ?? Not the Americans , THAT'S for sure.

The Americans happily freed Japanese war criminals after WW2 in exchange for information gained through testing bio weapons on live Chinese subjects. It is well known Anthrax and other deadly bio weapons of mass destruction are held by the USA, UK, and other countries.

China isn't the only one doing this. Makes me wonder how many new diseases out there are natural.

A super-weapon that can be placed in any country in the world. No-one would know, so no retaliation.

Prevention better than cure. So much fear mongering, but China did well the last time. Next time too

We live in Europe. When we see Chinese tourists
we just run trying not to inhale the air around.

It's fantastic work!. I'm deadly pleased French way.
Two-three years - and they'll create Miss CHFR

My bad, I guess China’s National Avian Influenza Reference Laboratory says it all.

It would have been worth mentionning if this laboratory is state-funded or a private entity...

Hey, Lord May! Ever wondered what might still be happening at Fort Detrick? The Chinese seem open??
