Good news, everybody. China wants you to know that they may have confirmed the first case of H10N3 bird flu in humans. But no biggie because they say the risk of transmission is low.

We should totally take their word for it, right?

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

How can any news outlet that claims any level of credibility report what China is saying about this without immediately noting they are an untrustworthy, garbage dump of a state? This is the same country that unleashed COVID-19 on the world and lied about it for months. Originally, China and the World Health Organization were claiming as late as January that human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus wasn’t happening. Despite that, the Associated Press just repeats what the CCP says like they are a personal propaganda outlet.

Now, as to China’s claims, I wouldn’t take a word they say as truthful. Yes, this strain of bird flu is supposedly less harmful, but no one thought COVID was as deadly as it was until enough people contracted it to show us its true nature in humans.
