At long last, the COVID19 pandemic is winding down. Just in time for summer!
And just in time for this news out of China:
The Chinese government says a 41-year-old man has contracted what might be the world’s first human case of the H10N3 strain of bird flu, but that the risk of large-scale spread is low. China's National Health Commission said the man is in stable condition. https://t.co/Vah26xIe6L

China says the risk of large-scale spread is low?
“This infection is an accidental cross-species transmission,” [the National Health Commission’s] statement said. “The risk of large-scale transmission is low.”
Well, if the Chinese government says it’s low, that’s good enough for us.
suuuuuuuuuuuure, okay. https://t.co/ZV6tsP7ooz

As we know, the Chinese government is a very reliable source of information.

Thank you, China, for being so forthcoming with this information!
“The 41-year-old man in Jiangsu province, northwest of Shanghai, was hospitalized April 28 and is in stable condition”
. . . And we’re just hearing about it now.
On June 1.

At least we’re hearing about it, OK? And there’s only one case, which is practically zero cases, which is the same number of deadly COVID19 cases that China first told us about and … ah, OK. We’re starting to see the problem here.
