(Worthy News) - Scientists warn that a new pathogen could kill almost 10 percent of the world's population of 7.6 billion people.
Researchers at John Hopkins University used a computer to simulate the spread of a new type of "parainfluenza," called "Clade X," by a terrorist group.
The researchers say the simulation would have ended with up to 900 million dead. What is even more alarming is that the pathogen as designed was no more dangerous than SARS, a virus that killed 775 people worldwide. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
