H5N6 may ruin the Olympics in South Korea

Recommended Posts

Epidemics have ruined lots of good plans. But this time it relates Olympic Games planned in South Korea and this is a catastrophe imo.

 Lots of financial and human resources have been already spent in the run-up to the Games. But the risks are too high to ignore this challenge called H5N6.

From that link on Reddit..

Thank you for your understanding."

Zika was supposed to have a major impact on the Rio Olympics.  Turned out to be one of the biggest non-stories I can remember.  When this gets reported somewhere other than Reddit, maybe it can be taken seriously.  Until then, this is fake news.

I did read many weeks ago about fears of a Flu epidemic possibly hiting the games, but I also remember reading the SK government decided to act quickly and attack the area where the virus was emerging so it wouldn't affect other places.This is actually very old news from late November. We haven't heard anything else about it since then so my guess is they solved said issue.

So yeah, like Quaker said, don't trust Reddit too much. They tend to post fake news very often.
