Looks like MRNA tech may get another workout. Margie Greene wants the Red states to secede, so the Blue state folks may soon get a chance at some discount property after H5N1 runs its course. Maybe a good time to stock up on discount hand sanitizer and overstock N95 masks. Attention Red Staters - vaccines don't work! Masks don't work! I'm looking forward to enjoying my new Gulf-of-Mexico-view bungalow...  ::)

human infections with contemporary H5N1 viruses are not surprising, especially among people who do not take recommended precautions (such as wearing personal protective equipment, including respiratory protection, for example)

Although H5N1 viruses primarily infect different types of wild birds and domestic poultry, H5N1 viruses also can infect other animals. Sporadic H5N1 virus infections of mammals have been reported for more than 20 years in different countries that have experienced H5N1 outbreaks in poultry or wild birds. H5N1 viruses can infect mammals that are exposed to environments with a high concentration of virus or that eat (presumably infected) sick or dead birds or poultry, including but not limited to wild or feral animals such as foxes; stray or domestic animals such as cats and dogs; and zoo animals such as tigers and leopards. Recently, sporadic H5N1 virus infections in different mammals, including bears, wild foxes, and skunks, have been reported in Canada, the United States, and other countries, including mink in Spain and sea lions in Peru. Reports of sporadic H5N1 virus infections of predatory and scavenger mammals are not unexpected given widespread H5N1 virus infections in wild birds worldwide.
