Scientists Warn About the Danger of Pandemic Due to Mutated Virus

London, Dec 23 (Prensa Latina) A group of scientists warned the European Commission about the danger of a possible leak from a laboratory of a mutated virus that could cause a pandemic with catastrophic results.

In a letter. Experts which include various Nobel Prize, they denounced the possible civilian and military use of experiments conducted at Erasmus Medical Center, in Rotterdam, Holland.

According to the newspaper The Independent, that center intentionally modifies the H5N1 avian flue virus with the purpose of making new stumps that could be transmitted from to birds to mammalians and to human. It seems the Dutch authorities warned the mastermind of the experiments, Ron Fouchier, that they need an export licence before being published in a foreign journal.

However, this expert's work was protected by the president of the European Virology Society, Giorgio Palu, who asked the European Commission to leave Rotterdam Lab continue its work, Noted the Independent.

In addition the 56 scientists who signed the warning letter argued that the experiments want to create new viral infections and there is always the risk of a leak.

Besides, experts see with great concern the future announcement of the results of this dangerous investigation as, they said, can be reproduced in malicious hands.
