Better get ready, The Wuhan is comin thru!

Bacterial attachment to host cells is the initial step in the pathogenesis of infection. Our studies and those of oth- ers also showed that there is a significant correlation be- tween the attachment of bacteria to human pharyngeal epithelial cells and the occurrence of respiratory tract infections. We identified the receptor on human pharyn- geal epithelial cells which mediate binding of Moraxella catarrhalis and Haemophilus influenzae. In an attempt to prevent occurrence of infections, the effects of povidone- iodine gargling on the incidence of respiratory infections were investigated. The subjects included a total of 23 adult patients, both males and females, with chronic respiratory diseases showing repeated infections. Pa- tients were asked to gargle more than 4 times/day with povidone-iodine gargle over extended periods of time, i.e. from several months up to over 2 years. The inci- dence of episodes of acute exacerbation of chronic respi- ratory infections decreased significantly when compared with that before use of povidone-iodine gargle. Episodes of infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylo- coccus aureus (including MRSA) and H. influenzae were reduced by about 50%. Results of this study suggest that povidone-iodine gargle is effective in providing a signifi- cant reduction in the incidence of acute exacerbations of chronic respiratory disease. We assume that the colon- ized bacteria were destroyed and thus infection could not occur. Therefore, povidone-iodine gargle may be used in these patients as a preventive therapy. Further studies are needed to find out the mechanism of action of this drug for the prevention of respiratory tract infections.Read More
@destraht Ok, that's caught my attention. They've got a biolab there? That's like suddenly people started getting sick in Reston, VA. Almost happened, but humanity was lucky in 1989... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/reston_virus . That building was since torn down and replaced with a day-care center. /// Pic by Taro Taylor from Sydney, Australia - Ventolin Monkey, CC BY 2.0, commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=15693856
Wuhan, China (11 million people) is currently on a soft lock down after a coronovirus outbreak that has killed a not-yet-super-scary number of people. Quite interesting that this is going down in the city that has the hard core maximum security biolab meant to study the world's gnarliest shit.
Genetic recombination is pretty much child play at this point for just about anything. Also, all of the big player countries want to have racially targetted bioweapons (that fuck everyone up a bit while extra fucking certain groups).
