Question

Hi I wish they would make Tetanus, Bird flu and Anthrax. I have been wondering why they haven't made them already.

They already have the flu, bird flu is just a strain of it that is more infectious in birds. Tetnus and anthrax would be great additions, though they might not want to make anthrax given its reputation as a biowarfare bug.

For birdflu you could have the same flu microbe, but with wings on it? I don't know if people would get it though, unless it had H5N1 written on the front LOL

Eh, people are pretty stupid... My cousin contracted MRSA this year, and when I would tell people, this is what they would say...

"MRSA? What is that? Like, some disease?"

I know, I was astounded to... XD

I do not expect the general public to know much about microbiology besides what little information they get from the sensationalized version the media gives. It does not necessarily mean they are stupid or anything like that, it is just not their area, I do not know a lot about other fields so why should others know about mine? I do try to impart a little education if and when the situation calls for it.
