US Scientist Forced to Backtrack on Swine Flu Origin

US scientist forced to say “he was misquoted” on the swine flu virus originating in “either New Zealand or China.”
Professor Gus Kousoulas, the director of Louisiana State University’s division of biotechnology and molecular medicine, had been quoted as saying: “We think it [swine flu] began in New Zealand or China,” adding that his conclusion “was based on early phylogenetic analysis of available sequences.”
Kousoulas, subsequently threatened with dismissal by the Board of Regents of LSU, has now backtracked on his earlier findings, saying: “There is no basis currently to support a New Zealand origin. While we still do not know the true origin, a US or Mexico origin is more likely.”
Professor, is it worth the 30 pieces?
According to one report, quoting The World Health Organization, more than 50 countries have reported about 15,000 cases of influenza A (H1N1), commonly referred to as the ‘swine flu,’ with most of the cases occurring in Mexico and the US.
Of the 99 people who have reportedly died as a result of swine flu infection, 97 were of Hispanic origin. The remaining two had other health complications, possibly worsened by the flu infection.
Despite the backtracking by Kousoulas, a number of informed sources strongly believe the A (H1N1) “Mexican viral variation” was developed at New Zealand’s ESR (a Crown Research Institute wholly owned by the New Zealand Government) and shipped to Mexico for “commercial exploitation.” The virus was designed to be most effective on a specific genetic sequencing.
