It has been recently revealed that the entire detail of an experiment done on a deadly flu virus, which is becoming more contagious, is going to be published soon. The United States had earlier raised concern over the matter that there is need for some of this information to be kept private, otherwise unscrupulous sources, such as terrorists, might be able to use this information for the development of a weapon that could kill millions of people at a go.
It has been revealed by the World Health Organization, that after months of debate that has gone into the flu research, the results need to be made public. It was revealed by Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that there is need for making these results public as only then the scientific teams would be able to develop effective modes of treatment against the disease, after having understood the inflictions fully.
“The group consensus was that it was much more important to get this information to scientists in an easy way to allow them to work on the problem for the good of public health. It was not unanimous, but a very strong consensus”, he said.
The government on the other hand isn’t fully wrong when it says there is no need for making the results public. This is because the terrorists are actually simply looking for opportunities and loopholes that will determine their next move of destructive harming the people of the vicinity. The country has had major terrorist encounters in the past, and they don’t want to put thousands of lives at risk so they are scared to publish such confidential data.
