In Jul 2013 a story came out about a pandemic among seals. Earlier that winter officials found 162 dead harbor seals and thought it was a pneumonia outbreak. But investigations found that not to be true. They found the seals had a new mutated influenza A virus. The fact that it can be transferred from a bird to a mammal with the high mortality rate it has raised concerns for humans. Because it is in seals it is considered the “Seal Flu”. It was stated there is a 70 percent chance of it moving from the seals to humans. Ebola, Hepatitis C, other flus, HIV are like this to name a few.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, influenza A viruses have been known to infect seals, ducks, chickens, pigs, whales, and horses. Each year the flu changes, it has hundreds of different strains. The H1N1 has changed as well and becoming as common as the flu. With all these viruses mutating and now influenza a effecting mammals and the high number of people who get the flu shot which has numerous side effects itself in a large number of people, it’s only a matter of time before another pandemic hits humans, we see thousands of people die and then start seeing thousands of the walking dead. It’s only prudent of us to start preparing now, stock up on water, canned foods, just as you would for a hurricane, get a few good guns with plenty of ammo and knives, machetes or even some sort of sword to protect yourself when the inevitable happens.
