An Australian researcher claims theH1N1 swine flu which has killed at least 64 people and spread to at least 30 countries, might not be a viral mutation that occurred naturally but a man-made product of genetic experiments accidentally leaked from a laboratory.

The World Health Organization is taking very seriously.

Adrian Gibbs, a scientist on the team that was behind the development of Tamiflu, says in a report he is submitting today that swine flu might have been created using eggs to grow viruses and make new vaccines and could have been accidentally leaked to the general public.

“It might be some sort of simple error that’s not being recognized,” Gibbs said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

    You got to be kidding me.

    This is at least somewhat plausible if the chickens that laid the eggs were infected with avian flu, which is part of this new flu strain’s genome.

    It’s all out of control, guys. If the WHO determines this is true, we’re in serious trouble. What else has gotten lose and make the world sick? You have to wonder.
