Oxford says release probably related to vaccine experimentation

A Professor at the Royal London Hospital told NPR today that the descendent of the current H1N1 virus was “accidentally” released from a laboratory during experimentation.
Professor John Oxford stated  that the strain of H1N1 that appeared in the 1970’s was “probably released accidentally from a laboratory, probably in northern China or just across the border in Russia, because everyone was experimenting with those viruses at the time in the lab.”
Oxford told NPR that he didn’t believe the release was malicious but came as a result of “some flu vaccine research that broke out of containment.”
The professor said that the reason the new H1N1 strain has proven to be relatively mild is because a lot of people had “been exposed to a distant cousin, the H1N1 virus that emerged in the 1970s.”

There has been speculation that the current H1N1 virus was deliberately released from a lab due to its highly synthetic structure and the fact that despite being labeled “swine flu,” it seemingly did not come from infected pigs and no pigs have died from the virus during the course of the outbreak.
As we reported last week , Baxter International has been chosen by the WHO to head up efforts to produce a vaccine for the Mexican swine flu that is spreading throughout the U.S. and Europe.
The decision was made despite revelations in March that vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus were recently distributed to 18 countries by a lab at an Austrian branch of Baxter.
As we have highlighted , the probability of mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible.
