With tensions rising in the Far East over North Korean threats to turn South Korea into a flaming death zone, a Chinese military official is adding to the volitility by claiming that the latest version of bird flu hitting China is actually a US bioweapon.

Colonel Dai Xu of the People’s Liberation Army wrote online that the new strain of bird flu hitting China, known as H7N9, is an American “bio-psychological weapon” meant to destabilize China. The rant, posted to Dai’s account on the Twitter-like service Weibo, had already been shared by more than 30,000 fellow users by the time that the South China Morning Post reported it on Monday. Dai now has a quarter million followers on Weibo, which is quite a platform.

In general, Chinese Web users appear to have rejected Dai’s argument. In response to the criticism, though, he’s only dug in. “It is common knowledge that a group of people in China have been injected with mental toxin by the U.S.,” he wrote at one point. “I will not retreat even half a step.” He urged Chinese officials to ignore the virus’s apparent spread and argued that the disastrous 2003 SARS outbreak was also an American plot.

The Chinese government is ignoring his claims, but it is also devoting resources to find out ways to keep humans from contracting the H7N9 strain of bird flu. According to a Chinese news outlet:


The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has started researching how humans can avoid contracting the H7N9 virus.

imageThe project, with joint efforts from nine CAS institutes including the Institute of Microbiology and the Institute of Biophysics, focuses on H7N9′s origin, mutations, pathogenesis and interactions with hosts, among other aspects, according to a CAS statement released on Tuesday. MOREHERE

Taiwanese news sources say Taiwan will not work with China to develop a vaccine.  The Taiwanese government says health officials will work with American and western public health and research facilities.
